    If I wasn't working early on Friday, I'd be watching...I find it easier to stay up late then to go to bed and get up early (3 or 4am). Ugh, just no. Either way, I have to be up at 5am anyway so I'm not missing any sleep, lol.

    Good luck to all the dance teams, especially the Shibs because I want them to have an awesome result and prove the haterz wrong.

    Thanks Sylvia. I am so tired from staying up late the last few nights that my brain hurt trying to figure out start times vs my time!

    Aw,come on,it's not that bad.

    Besides, is there even a world-class coach they could go to? The leading ice dance schools in North-America right now are Novi and DSC. To Krylova they can't go, because she already trains W/P and H/D. Shpilband would probably not take them because of C/B. There isn't really much the Shibutanis can do.

    I wonder if the Shibs would even consider moving out of Michigan.

    Is it true that Shibs's father was partly responsible for Igor's firing from Canton? If so, I guess Shibs could never go there.

    There are other coaches beyond Detroit. Something has to be done here if they are going in for 4 more years. They've gone 3-8-8-9 over the last four years. In 2011 they beat every single team that finished above them at Worlds this week. Next year with Hawayek/Baker, Hubbell/Donohue, and Chock/Bates they could easily find themselves off the World team entirely. Their programs this year were a mess from start to finish. The programs did nothing to push them forward, set them apart, or highlight their best qualities. Who do I blame for that? Well, the first place to look is Marina.

    Leaving Michigan would be a big decision, but they need to make some kind of game-changing move. The writing has been on the wall for over 2 years now.

    I don't think that the Shibs would ever leave Michigan. Didn't they make the switch to Canton because they wanted the opportunity to study at a good school and also have world class training?

    The family has moved around the country when Alex and Maia were growing up to pursue the best coaching. I think they moved to Michigan from Colorado Springs to train with Igor/Marina as soon as Igor/Marina decided they were advanced enough or had enough potential to take them on (2008?). School, I would imagine, comes a very distant second.

    First, I am just happy they are continuing. I really like them!! I think a factor in how long they stick with Marina will be if they truly become her #1 team. After playing second fiddle to D/W and V/M (even though the Shibs seem to really be friends with both teams), if Marina gains a world ranked team and once again the Shibs are backburnered, that might rankle them enough to leave her.

    I, too, am happy they're continuing. Any chance Marina would let them get choreography elsewhere??
