Practice photos! http://photography.ice-dance.com/201...PF/SrDPrWedTh/
Awww I love the pictures.
I made some extrapolations from what she said but, judging by her (oh so great!) body of work, I wouldn't be surprised if that's what she was going after. Rosie likes to put people in boxes and make up fake drama, that's her shtick. And judging by the Chinese judge's comments in the other thread, the good-looking stars (V/M) vs the technically superior but not so pretty (D/W) is a popular comparison.
I wish there were more practice pictures of the FD. I heard people saying that they are doing the curve lift in the place of where the SlLi used to be. But I'm not fluent in Japanese so I'm not sure. I hope though there is a combo lift. They can kill 2 birds with one stone if they do a combo.
like in this picture) not Meryl's face. Why doesn't she talk about that? Anyways V/M had good SD practice today

I would like to bundle off Rosie & Phil (Hersh) to the South Pole where they can keep their sour thoughts to themselves. I make no time to read their articles any longer, it's just pure nastiness on both their parts.
Anyway want to contribute to the cause?
Crazy about sports!
ETA: In fact, some lower ranked teams have much better lines and posture than D-W. Paul and Islam? Hubbell and Donohue? Have you seen Guillaume Cizeron?

Also, here's a working link to the live Eurosport 2 feed. Snooker is on now (what is that?!?!), but next they're going to replay the men and ladies shorts then pairs and dance will be live. http://hotbladeshotpassion.blogspot....ussian-tv.html (Just choose "Eurosport 2" from the drop down in the first player!) The sd starts at 4:15 am EST. (Pairs at 3 am)
How journalist could say something like this in press? Did additorthis press have chief-a?
Did she think she helped Tessa and Scott? I feel bad for them
Thanks for the picture link MissJD.
As long as I've been a fan of figureskating in general, many of the journalists who cover it have almost always come across as if they didn't really want the assignment but drew the short straw. I wish that people like Phil Hersh and Rosie DiManno would educate themselves or at least let the papers find someone, anyone who really wants the story and might make an effort to do a better job with it. There has to be a newspaper version of a Terry Gannon type. Someone who might have been reluctant at first but did educate themselves about the in's and out's of the sport, who has come to appreciate it and who wants to truly educate the readers.
For Tessa and Scott, all I'm looking for is two great performances. I'm willing to start from there and move on to Canadians then Sochi. V&M's SD is IMHO the best dance in the field. Shows the true character of the chosen rhythm both in content, technique and how the dance is interpeted by V&M. I want the audience to see this dance the way it should be seen.
I still think the FD can work, but V&M can't back off. Even if they have a slight bobble, then move past it and kill it with the rest of the dance. Don't let that one bobble throw off the remainder of the program.
This is what I want from this competition. Good luck to Tessa and Scott.
Sitting in front of computer. Ready to cheer for V&M!

I hope they win the SD go V/M They are going to nail it!
I feel so terrible because I can't watch GPF live. But it is better for my sanity
