    Alex also tweeted today that he and Maia "will be taping a segment for the @todayshow on Wed. (10 am) at Rockefeller Center that will air on Christmas morning!"
    Here are the recordings of the chat- sort of cut off at the end of each. But they're so cute!

    One interesting tidbit- they switched their Mary Poppins SD after Champs Camp because they got feedback that they were outskating it. Also, stay tuned they have another ShibSib video planned.

    They seem like sweet kids but I think their career has already peaked with that World bronze in 2011. Their results might improve a bit after Sochi, but it is not like they will fly back to the top. There are already teams ahead of them now roughly their age. I think they should skate together though, it is not like they do will do any better with anyone else at this stage of their career.

    I disagree. They weren't "supposed" to get World bronze in '11, that only happened because P/B faltered. I personally love the Shibs and recognize that they are a very, very talented team. Of course, there are always many factors, but I see no reason they can't be frontrunners after Sochi.

    Exactly. And their senior debut package was so perfectly tailored to them that they actually stood out. They had more issues with their programs the second time out, and even a little bit now (although I see great potential in the FD; I enjoy watching it very much, though). They made mistakes at Worlds and Alex has been injured or ill.

    The first season had the stars align for them. No reason they can't align again. They're still super young.
