    DJ's been all over the place for the past couple weeks. Maybe she needs to be promoted to Mascot status

    I can still hear her adorable, "DEEJ!"

    If I could give Meryl every dog, I probably would.

    Yes, I think it broke the cute meter as usual.

    I had really hoped to meet Meryl and Charlie when I was in Omaha for Nationals. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to but I did get to meet Tanith and DJ. He really is adorable.

    I did enjoy her pictures from the dog show she went to several weeks back. So cute!

    I respect everyone's beliefs here and I understand that some of you might be fans of both teams, however can we please talk about Meryl and Charlie. Enough of the crying for v/m. Were they (v/m fans) this sympathetic for Charlie at the last 4CC??? Hmm didn't think so. And what's the big deal about "tessa faking it"? If someone really did say it, then so what. There are ignorant people everywhere. Get over it.

    V/M lost. Meryl and Charlie won. End of story.

    sorry for sounding harsh but i am a little annoyed by this

    Who, in this thread, said that Tessa was faking it?

    Maybe it would be easier if the element that was interrupted wasn't counted. That way, there's a punishment but no explicit deduction. Or maybe there should be a mandatory deduction in PCS, however that could work.
    They did change the rule about interruptions several years ago, after the infamous pairs incident where the lady fell on a throw and her partner was overheard telling her to "stay down" so they could get the do-over. Under the current rule, skaters are not allowed to repeat an element; the scoring resumes from the point they stopped skating. (I think the actual wording is that the skaters "resume from the point of the interruption" so they cannot go back and repeat whatever they fell on anymore. Here, I think V/M were allowed to do the lift because they never really attempted it in the first place. (We just know it was meant to be there from seeing the program before.)

    And I would think that a high ranked team as V/M is capable of recovering. After all, it's how skaters usually train.
    Actually, muscle cramps in athletes work much like anyone else's. I think in Tessa's case, her compartment syndrome may cause a different sort of cramps, but for most folks, once a muscle starts cramping, it does not recover just by a couple minutes rest. (Anyone here recall Hunter Pence hobbling around the bases in the World Series last fall?) Ignoring muscle cramps is very risky, as those already tightened muscles are very prone to tearing when you try to stretch them out or make them work.

    I wasn't meaning recovering from the cramp, I meant in regards to artistry. Skaters often don't do full run-throughs which means they have to be in character, then they pause, get back into character. Jessie was referring to the interruption harming the artistry which I think wouldn't be that much of an issue since skaters seem to be used to "interrupt" their program while training.

    (That Tessa wasn't visibly stretching her leg was actually what caught my attention and made me think that, hopefully, for her sake, it's really "just" a cramp and nothing more. ... And apologies to anyone for the on-going off-topic)

    I'm a V/M fan and I was sympathetic to Charlie's issue last year at 4CC. I appreciate any D/W fans (or otherwise) concern for Tessa. We are all human beings after all. We are not all heartless. Just sayin'

    Someone, at the very least, referenced a discussion in which the theory that V&M stopped because they were afraid to lose to D&W was put forth upthread ("breather incident")...I'll give that person the benefit of the doubt and hope that they were not implying that, but that is how the topic came up. In any case, those people and those people alone are responsible for their actions. All fans of a team should not have to share the blame for their insensitive and ignorant comments.

    and as I recall, you were not alone in that. I think a lot fans concerned about the health of other/rival skaters. I agree, it is nice to see such support.

    rainbowkisses, I realize this is a public forum and you can say what you want, but do you really have to go there?

    I can't wait to hear their thoughts on this EX!

    I think the choreography in this new ex is just exquisite. It's very touching and Meryl's dress is just

    I was thinking that I'd like to see a reverse lift next season, a la Samson and Delilah. My stream (well, computer) got a bit skippy so I don't know if they changed it, but at Nats they slipped that lift into the exhibition. I liked seeing it again!
