    I'm finding that these Sochi preview videos are all disorganized on the NBC Olympics site. I'm nervous as to how it is going to look once there is a lot of news coming in. It is making icenetwork look ridiculously neat.

    There are some little preview videos like that on my cable On Demand, but none of them are skating-related. And in the Athlete Profiles section, the only skater they have right now is Gracie.

    Just in case you missed the "level one" FS sequence.

    I know this is off topic, but I'm just so angry. W/P have worked incredibly hard over the past few years. They deserve a fair shot at a medal. They're not going to get one. It's ridiculous and it's sad. I can't imagine what it feels like to be them. How you wake up and have the motivation to train, knowing what's happening behind the scenes and what it means for you, is beyond me.

    They wonder why people flee from skating, this is it.

    Is that on Comcast?
    I feel like the Vancouver and London sites had a better layout. The videos also seem to be freezing up on this one for me.

This does make me worry a tad about scoring at future events. One drop in level is all it takes.
    I don't think they'd have the balls to give M/C a level one, but they might have gotten two level 3s instead of a 3 and 4 and the might have gotten hit harder on the midline.

    Cox. I'm hoping they add more videos soon. There's one with the athletes dancing and there's about a two-second clip of M&C.

    It was a cute vid though, outside of team tacky. I love Alex, I can just imagine their parents giving him an earful if he actually did drop Maia.

    You know I'm just happy to be a DW uber, ice dance drama is through the roof right now, I'm so hoping DW can stay above it all.

    Eta: I mean I just hope they don't get snared in any judging controversy.

    I don't know if anyone saw it, but Ekaterina Riazanova's FD costume is an almost exact replica of Meryl's POTO costume.

    The FD was also a bad knockoff...

    A bad knockoff of what is probably my least favorite D/W program as well.

    Rostelecom Cup sounds like it was...interesting. So, for the GPF we have: D/W, V/M, P/B W/P, B/S, and C/L?

    Good grief, they aren't even a patch off DW. Her dress is similar, Meryl didn't have the black accent and her top was better but it was definitely a knock-off.

    I guess I should ask Riazanova at Golden Spin if Davis&White are her favorite team
    As of March 2013 - no longer scared of TAHbKA or Andrey aka Pushkin

    I saw this photo and it made me think about the discussion people were having here about Charlie needing to look menacing. He's kinda pulling it off here!

    And not only that, look at the edge he's on... he's on one foot and he's still upright!

    You are so right. And I love Meryl's expression too!

    Except that dress looks bad on Riaznova. She doesn't have the built Meryl has to pull it off. I'm confused as whether I should laugh or smh at their POTO FD.

    I'm going to have to disagree. I actually like her dress better. It's prettier and less costumey, but yeah she wasn't subtle with the copy. She also looks nice in it. She has a great body though and could probably wear anything.

    I think you guys are being a little mean. I was expecting a hot mess of a program. They skill stated better than B/S, as far as having nice lines. They don't have the intensity of D/W, and that second to last lift was ugly, but other than that it was good. I think D/W would be flattered by the obvious copying. I think if they we're a higher ranked team making their Olympic medal moment with that, it would be different, but they're not.

    No, only good ice dancers can wear that dress.

    Gee I wonder which coward is hiding under this pseudo

    Back to the topic,
    That FD was so slow compared to M/C. If you're going to go dramatic, you need SPEED and POWER!! Gosh that last lift made me cringe.
