    I agree, I think the spins should be used more as a choreographic highlight than a technical element in ice dance that needs to be done. Although T/S may not have the best spins, I love how they create the positions in the spins to add to the storyline/choreography. Much better than teams (not going to stir the pot by naming any names) that seem to use the same spins multiple times and then just insert it where ever.

    Proustable, I like "Dance Me to the End of Love" as well!

    who knows they might get the tv viewership they've wanted for so long?
    Yes. And Zhiganshina will win FD at WCh

    Found out T-S site were update. Not the way we all want with new photos, messages, but with some new articles. This one i didnt read before
    http://upfront.pwc.com/talent/267-ge...-staying-there.

    “I look at other teams and I am so intimidated,” explains Virtue. “I think, they’re so much better than us. How can we ever compete with that?”
    We were at a competition in 2007...and I decided that I wasn’t going to let anyone else tell me what my dream would be,” Moir describes. “I remember being on the plane ride home... I took out a piece of paper and I wrote what I thought I needed to do and what steps I needed to take in order to be Olympic Champion. And I put it in my wallet. It’s still there today and I’ve tried my best to follow those [steps].”
    They are so differnet people

    Tessa said about this during fan meeting (about he will be good coach). But Scott said maybe he will be mentor in SC, if they will need his experience and will ask him to work in SC. And look like Scott could be good coach, but, like he sadi, for people, who want to learn to skate. he know, that not all the skaters are hapy to practice everyday and coach need to push them to work. Look like Scott didnt like to do this. And do you remeber, how he said to "Orange team", how Marina start to shout, when they disagree with her

    “It felt like not winning in 2011 meant that our 2010 Olympic and world titles were no good,” Moir explains.

    Different people, yes, but they complement each other perfectly.

    I hate how hard Tessa constantly seems to be on herself, but I love that Scott seems to have the confidence that both need.

    It breaks my heart that they've felt this way.

    I hope mentoring will be just the first step. I think Scott could be a great coach. He has the drive, the passion for the sport and especially for its technical side. I'm sure he'd find ways of communicating with the less diligent students.

    Mine too. Can you imagine them not winning in London, how they'd feel? My mind just doesn't want to go there.

    They were so robbed in 2011. I like them having that anger though. That's what's making them push themselves ahead.

    After suffering an injury to her lower leg as a result of overtraining, Virtue was still in significant pain heading into the Vancouver games. “I remember thinking -- I have to compete in five days at the Olympic Games in Canada and I can’t skate four minutes. How am I going to do this?” Virtue says.
    This is as well. Those 4 minutes of skating were the most effortless and easy that I've ever seen in any skating program. Just flawless.

    I have impression Marina will ask him to be hre o-coach after OG. Other guys maybe will go in different ways, but he will stay in sport for sure. And he love Marina.

    Mine too. Can you imagine them not winning in London, how they'd feel? My mind just doesn't want to go there
    Thats was my thougt too I wish T-S try to not focusing on results so much. And who tell them they didnt deserve medals in 2010?
    And i cant imaging, how Tessa, who is best ice dancer today, could thinking they are worst then other teams? Self-criticism is good thing sometime, but you need to belive in yourself, Tessa

    Even didnt want to remeber that day of 2011 WCh at arena

    I hope I don't offend anyone but I have to admit the first thought that crossed my mind is are you sure they're really Canadian? Thinking of B&K and S&P.

    Thank you Very interesting. Hm, look like PJ a little angry on Igor But at the end this is very good he did "Carmen" for Anna and Luca. Thats why Tessa-Scott changed the first variant of Carmen and we could enjoy modern "Carmen" from Swan
    Guys, if you will watching pre-GPF program on CBC let me know, what they were talking about. And cant wait to see T-S interview with Brenda. Hope they will be in Canton when she will come.
