    Well, I think it's great they are getting some positive attention. They deserve it. I really think their star is on the rise . Great new thread title too.

    The thread title was suggested by Pratfall in the original P/I thread:

    ..Thankya..Thankya..Thankya veruh much... Gee..I named a thread ? Cool.

    Thanks for posting that gala performance ! And it's even British Eurosport ! I've been checking Youtube for their coverage of the FD, but no luck, so far.. I'd really like to know what they said.

    I liked these comments, though.

    HQ version of Brit. Eurosport FD: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fgm1xc_VcEI

    Their technique is flawless, actual deep edges and real skating skills

    Next year I hope choreographers add more complex transitions. Also, their style is nothing like V&M.

    This was a good move going to K&C and not S&Z. This FD isn't the best work of K&C, but good to show great skills of an internationally-unknown team.

    I don't like this so much. They didn't have the ice coverage of S&B and the overall look/feel a bit too...cutesy

    "Cutesy" you say?

    Well. . . I guess to each his/her own.

    But I thought their performance was delightful and really captured the essence of their chosen music. Really couldn't have asked for anything more. (Can't really comment on ice coverage, not having seen it live.) Didn't find them trying to be deliberately "cute" at all. . . They appeared quite "genuine" (sincere) in their interpretation. Nothing "put on" or "fake" about this team IMO.

    Their SD is totally in the spirit of the musical..comparing program to program, I thought S/B's was a hodge-podge.. musically and choreographically.. but yeah, to each their own..

    Are they the favorites to make it to Sochi now? Poirier & Gilles are not even eligible due to citizenship so who else does that leave.

    No, I don't think they can be considered favourites. They're my favourites, but when has that ever counted ? Piper's papers are an unknown quantity..and apart from that ,a lot will depend on how they do on the GP. They had been (undeservedly , IMO) well received nationally, but only 18th at world's which I thought was a very fair result.

    So if fairly judged, P/I will be up against them (G/P), Ralph/ Hill and Orford /Williams

    Apparently P/I skated in the Detroit FSC Champion's Revue last night. Here's a link to the video. Weaver/Poje are in there as well.

    First season I pay attention to them. And I'm really happy to have discovered them now.
    Good luck at Nationals too.

    This has been posted a few places, but not here yet -- some fun with DSC skaters after the Champions Revue, including quite a bit of screen time for Mitch and one appearance from P/I together:

    What happens when you give a skater at the DSC your phone?
