    Canada is the only nation I can think of that would put out a promotional video for an international competition it's hosting and show none of its own skaters actually skating . C/L, V/T, Wagner and Fernadez were all highlighted but not one Canadian skater was even shown (skating at least)

    Alwas thought in Canada people respect figure skating, but not only there own skaters, no?
    Video is not pathetic and informal, but homey and warm

    Yes, that was my take on the vid as well. Scott, Tessa, and Patrick are the host speaking and welcoming the international skaters to their home. Seems appropriate to me. Ending was a little abrupt but the message is clear enough, Canadian figure skating stars welcoming the international figure skating stars.


    Thanks for the link pani.

    Yes. Canada respect everyone just like other countries. They must be so happy to be home and warm since they spend most life to train in USA facilities

    Me too! And it really hit me how much I'll miss them once they retire next year, love them! Was Vancouver the city they showed that was by the water? It was really pretty.

    And hello to the new posters (and any lurkers out there).

    ITA, although I do miss her brown hair. She also has a lovely daughter who I believe will be turning 10 this year.

When they're on the ice, they look so in the moment that we're drawn in, and we sometimes feel like we're intruding on a private moment. It also probably helped with the injuries because not everyone would just be able to focus on one thing and block out pain like that.
    Great points, ofdarkness!

    Virtue and Moir 25: Road to home

    I was able to positively identify the location of the following scenes below from the video. Not certain about the "exact" location of the others, although some are obviously from somewhere in Saskatchewan (prairies scene), The Rockies (mountain peaks), and the Pacific or Atlantic coast (lighthouse). I suspect this scene is somewhere in Montreal, but I can't confirm.

    Parliament buildings, Ottawa

    Toronto

    CN Tower closeup, Toronto

    Canadian Museum of civilization, Hull/Gatineau Quebec (view of Ottawa parliament hill across the Ottawa river)

    Vancouver

    Vancouver waterfront

    LOL.

    Has anyone seen this picture? Look at Marina, she looks worried. It's not strange, of course, but I remember someone here saying that Marina seemed indifferent of late. http://24.media.tumblr.com/a0c3bc303...wk03o4_500.jpg
