    Thanks for sharing that! I am really looking forward to seeing their dances this season, and I can't wait to see this in its entirety as well. Shame about that nasty fall, but better on the practice ice than in competition (if it has to be anywhere). I'm enjoying watching this team develop - definitely rooting for them to make it to the Olympics.

    Too bad about the twizzles. I think it is a good program for them.

    Thanks for sharing! What music were they skating to? I'm too lazy this morning to look it up.

    2013 U.S. Novice silver medalists Tory Patsis & Joe Johnson will always remember their JGP debut! http://www.ice-dance.com/main/2013-j...-sportsmanship
    Hey from Belarus!

    Joe here again. Tory's having a bit of difficulty with her internet so she's going to blog from my computer at the earliest opportunity. It's been a very eventful two days after the arrival! We started out the first practice yesterday pretty strong, minus the collision that required Tory getting stitches on her left shin. Just want to inform you all that the skating still feels great, and she was a total trooper about the whole thing. I nearly lost consciousness at the sight of Dr. Hans patching her up.
    ... Sportsmanship shoutout to fellow dancer Quinn Carpenter for bringing me PB&J to start the following day's short dance comp. Gotta love team USA!

    Sylvia beat me to it.

    McNamara & Carpenter's free dance is apparently about the cat-and-mouse game between Irene Adler and Sherlock Holmes.

    Kudos for Patsis for skating injured.

    Looks like the USA will be in good hands once D&W retire.

    Nationals is going to be thrilling and heartbreaking. D/W, H/D, S/S, Lynn/Logan, C/B all vying for spots on the Olympic team. We've seen the programs for D/W, H/D and Lynn/Logan. I look forward to seeing what S/S and C/B have to offer this season. I wish we could send them all!

    Thanks for sharing that, semogal. I really enjoyed that - it almost didn't even feel like a competitive piece. It felt very smooth and flowing, and they have come so far in the short time they've been together. H/D might not have all the difficulty of the very top dance teams, but they are certainly building. IMO this team is so different from the team that won Nebelhorn in 2011. Congrats to them.

    I'm rooting for H/D to make the Olympic team, but Nationals is just going to be heartbreaking this season, you're right. I'm going to be gutted no matter who gets to go.

    ETA: Madison looks elegant - I love her hair, and her dress (and she has had some questionable outfits before haha) - and in comparison, Zach looks like he's wearing sweatpants. I think I get that the grey is supposed make her stand out more...but can he get a new outfit?

    Worse, I thought it looked like prison garb (Did she release him from prison?). Donohue's costume is not good. Madi's dress is fine.

    Here's the Eurosport version of H/D's FD:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJxN9x4qTQg

    I wasn't sure what to think when I saw the practice footage of this dance. But they blew me away today. I have watched it like 10 times. It is already beautiful and has room to grow throughout the rest of the season.

    I feel the same, semogal. H/D just thrilled me with that beautiful FD. I love their SD as well and will be happy to see it again with more mileage.

    After seeing Kriengkrairut/Giulietti-Schmitt and H/D, I can kinda see why USFS gives Skate America to H/D . K/GS's short dance needed more work on it. :
