"Meryl is from a magic planet where Disney princesses come from, and [Charlie's] hair is a magic carpet." ~~ Stephen Colbert, on The Colbert Report
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.
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.
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?
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!
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 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.
