    Did we have any additional ideas for names when we made this one? I can't remember back far enough now.

    They're Grrreat! definitely belongs on the list of ideas.

    Meryl and Charlie skated perfectly and everyone knew it. Not much more to say.

    Well, that's kinda tempting fate.

    There were some recent D-W quotes I really liked. Maybe we can make something from one of these:

    "... at the end of the day if we can sit down and look each other in the eye and say we did everything that we could, we're going to be happy and we're not going to feel the need to belittle anyone or disagree publicly with anyone."

    Davis said this skate is one she'll remember years down the road. A magical moment that "gives you tingles, that you get giddy about," she said.

    "It's a really good sign when, from beginning to end, you're having a good time," White said. "It was one of those dream skates."

    More Good Time Tingles?

    Hey, sometimes it pays to walk on the wild side.

    "It's a really good sign when, from beginning to end, you're having a good time," White said. "It was one of those dream skates."

    Or, Let the Good Times Roll.

    All i can say is thank God for D&W. As an American considering how crappy our Pairs teams are right now and also no contenders in Men's and no medals in Ladies since 2006 this team keeps the US relevant at Worlds year after year after year. They are great role models and team leaders and also tough as can be competitors. They make us all proud.

    I love Magical Wizard Hair and They're Grrrrreat!.

    I would add Davis and White #16: They're Working Hard because it's been their go-to quote this season and because it will never not be true.

    I must say I was a little disappointed with the commentary from them last night especially Chris
    He was rambling on about Cappellinis dirty boots how it just spoiled the whole thing for him Then he was going on about Solovievs Pants
    They didn't think B/S were good especially their twizzles not covering the ice and their SLSS was empty.
    They thought V/M were wonderful too but said at this level any mistake could be costly .

    Well done Meryl/Charlie you were amazing well worth staying up for !

    Here you go for Davis & White ..

    As usual they're pretty quiet (thank goodness!) during skaters' programmes - saying only 'fantastic twizzles' and 'mind-blowing speed through that' and 'every step so clean'.

    Following the programme:

    Simon ' Listen to the roar, and remember this is a Canadian crowd, there's no doubt where their support is, but they know great skating when they see it and they saw it right there.
    Unbelieveable synchronisation, fun to watch, like it was fun to dance to, just one minor nit-pick though Chris, what about the matching costumes or does it not matter?'

    Chris ' I don't think it matters. I think that's perfect for their choice of music. I thought that was absolutely brilliant. They were right on the money tonight. Beautifully clean, crisp. The sharpness from start to finish - second to none so far. The Canadians are going to have to go some to beat that. Speed across the ice was just amazing. The pattern that they carved out in the Yankee Polka was by far and away the biggest of anything we've seen so far. Just so sharp. Sometimes you feel they're giving it too much (laughs) - you've got to have your weight firmly over the skate and be in complete control when you're skating at this sort of speed and rotating like that - look at it. Amazing unison throught on those synchronised twizzles. Look at it - even under the scrutiny of the slow motion you can't fault them.'

    Simon 'We've seen them through the year at the GP events and the GP final and the 4CC and I don't think they've skated it as well as that.'

    Chris 'I think you're probably right. Yeah, for me it was sensational. I loved the little changes of rhythm throughout the circular step sequence and all those little pieces towards the judges, beautiful rotational lift there ...'

    Simon 'It was foot perfect'

    Chris 'They just make it look so easy don't they?'

    Simon 'Yeah, when they slow it down it's almost at normal speed'

    Both laugh

    Chris ' Yes, looks like they both enjoyed themselves out there. Great job guys. Should be looking for a good score here'

    (brief discussion of season's best score) then 'that was mighty good'

    Ha.
    I got up at 4.30 in the morning to watch them - I just can't sleep, knowing they're skating somewhere.))

    I feel a little weird at work right now...

    Congratulations, everyone -they were incredible!

    P.S. Russian commentator who admitted one more time, that he ALWAYS prefers V/M, said that today D/W were better.

    Do these various commentators who prefer V&M spell out exactly what qualities they prefer in their skating? If you like speed, power, and athleticism, as I do, then I think there's a clear difference between the teams. OTOH, there are definitely things that I think V&M do better, but I don't consider those as fundamental to the sport of ice dancing.

    Press conference excerpts--thanks to Sylvia in the SD thread.

    Those crazy kids and their name card shenanigans.

    Unbelievable synchronization, fun to watch, like it was fun to dance to, just one minor nit-pick though Chris, what about the matching costumes or does it not matter?'
    Yes, I've been thinking that what Giselle is missing is matching costumes. Charlie needs a flouncy German peasant girl frock.

    Charlie is dressed like Albrecht from the ballet. The costume makes perfect sense.
