    I prefer my super hd copy of Mahler that has no commentary

    Kudos to Russian fans for their strong support of Tessa & Scott. One can see that T&S were really touched with all the cute gifts etc. As Tessa said they had two banners in Russia and in Canada they have often have none.

    My banner is ready and if any of you fans are going to Nats let me know and I will give it to you to hang up there. I can then take it back for worlds.

    Yes, stunningly gorgeous both of them. Does the red flower on Scott's lapel have any particular meaning or did he wear it just to brighten up his overall look a little?

    Thanks for bringing those pictures here.

    That's a poppy, Canadians (and I think Brits do also) wear it during November to commemorate Remembrance Day which is our Veteran's day.

    some articles in russian:

    http://www.championat.com/other/arti...kott-moir.html
    http://winter.sport-express.ru/figur.../reviews/26163

    According to first article they did the first version of their FD with Marina but it was too typical so they decided to bring in Jennifer Swan who recreated the choreography.

    This is google translate from the first of the three links marikat posted:

    - Would you say that he was thinking about retirement after Sochi?

    Moir: - At least you need to take a break at least for a year (laughter).

    Virtue: - Olympic season - it's a good opportunity to run its course in the sport beautifully. But now we can not say exactly when it will happen. To be honest, I actually thought we were finished amateur career in 2010. Itself from itself did not expect that I decide to continue. Rather, we both decide. No one knows exactly what will happen, but we have long ride with Scott and achieved a lot. We would like the sport and is able to achieve comparable success.

    Moir: - We have a whole life ahead. And, hopefully, figure skating - it is only one chapter. Sports - it's hard work, which is often the part is not visible, it is the victim who has to bring. Sometimes it seems that you are in the side of what is called "real life." Would not want to miss something.
    I'm very intrigued by them not saying with 100% certainty that they'll retire after Sochi. I expect them to retire but it's interesting that they're not saying it's a sure thing.

    I would be shocked if the choregraphy wasn't a combination of Marina and Swan.

    Could you imagine if both teams had skated a replica program? OMG!

    Someone was shouting stop during the rotational. Sounds like Marina, but I'm not sure. Playing catch up with things. Can't decide if I like the FD from SC over CoR because the camera work for CoR is bugging me. Cameraman likes Tessa's eyes though, lots of eye focus in the SD and during the Ex. Watching the gala practice vids, getting a kick out of them practicing polka during gala practice. Love, love the Russian VM fans, not just for their vocal support during the comp but for sharing lots of media goodies to us all. Thanks! (Where is pani btw?)

    ETA: I am glad they are using Hallelujah as their Ex, really loving the contrast between Tessa the seductress in Carmen and Tessa the guardian angel in Hallelujah, at least that's my interpretation for that number.

    It was Marina. They didn't hear her at first, but when they did they stopped; it looked like they were gonna collide with another team.

    And ditto about the Russian fans they are amazing.

    I'm glad Jennifer Swan's input was able to take the program from typical to extraordinary.

    The commentator here from Switzerland actually gasps near the end when they do the backflip lift & you hear them going crazy after the program ends, it's so cute!

    If it was the first time they saw that program, ITA that it is shock worthy. The more I watch that program the more I love it. I think I have watched it 20 times now. New fave program since B&K's Adagio.

    Awesome reaction. It sounds like they're speaking French though.
