    ROTFL at the Colbert report.

    And aww! at the cuteness. But isn't that a kid (baby goat)? Rather than a lamb?

    I don't actually know if it's a kid or a lamb. Maybe I should have just said cute baby animal?

    I guess I was hoping it was a baby sheep so I can compare it to this...

    Omg, Stephen Colbert is one of the few reasons I miss having cable. How awesome! And even he's indirectly telling Disney to hope in the D/W pot while it's hot!

    Where did the lamb/baby goat come from?

    Seriously! MC are just begging to be turned into Disney characters... they're practically there already!

    I'm also happy that this thread has been a positive place to be... I've been lurking here since... 2010, 2011 maybe, and posting since last summer. There's always something here to make me smile.

    Uh, to all the crazy people who were running around yelling the D/W's win was the result of fixed results, please take a look at the ladies results That's what funky results look like.

    Yep, so many people complaining about D/W, they've been ignoring what was going on with the Russian ladies and their higher than normal PCS.

    No kidding! I think my jaw hit the floor and my server almost melted down. LOTS of unhappy fans over on the Golden Skate forums, that's for sure! Makes DW vs. VM seem like Bingo at the old folks' home by contrast.

    I'll be very interested to see how the competition results in Japan next month compare to these Olympics.

    Hey, maybe that was the plan all along, get everyone riled up about dance and no one will notice what goes down in the ladies event

    I'm actually upset that this is the Olympics Meryl and Charlie won their OGM at. I wish it was Korea and then Russia (or better yet no Russia at all). I just have so many negative feelings about this event. None of which are the skaters fault. I just...can't handle it.

    LOL! I mean... c'mon, it's not like VM finished third or off the podium or something truly scandalous. The results were pretty much what they've been for the past couple of seasons.

    I would've put PB over IK for the bronze, though, but with their draw order for the FD, that was pretty much never going to happen.

    The thing is though, is this really surprising to anyone at this point? There was some questionable scores going on all YEAR for Russian skaters, let alone the Olympics. But I could really see this coming after the Russian mens hockey team lost. Frankly, I would have been more shocked had Yulia or Adelina NOT won.
    Feel sad for Carolina and Yuna.

    All things considered, the response of the crowd to Meryl and Charlie wasn't that bad. It was so much worse during Mao's SP, I can't even start to describe it. The biggest problem with the audience is that most real figure skating fans couldn't afford it financially make it to Sochi. Things would be completely different in Moscow or St.Petersburg.
    Here we had a bunch of hockey fans who were coming to look at the pretty girls and locals who wanted to watch Olympic event and have never seen figure skating before. They were unreally loud during Russian skaters and did more damage than help for them. It was terrible during Julia's skate today, I feel sorry for her. She really couldn't handle such pressure.
    It was really the worst figure skating audience ever. I feel sick and ashamed.

    Hi all!
    I've been a fan for years but a very quite one (for no reason lol). I mean that I'm not a super active forum member but I'm a huge supporter of Meryl and Charlie. Their win has really added some light to these overal gloomy days to me.
    Anyways, that's what I saw on Lindsay Vonn's page: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10152233936243007 It's sad that apperently even with the number of wins they are still unrecognizable to many fans but if Evan (and single skaters-champions have always been popular) is confused for Michael Phelps then, I guess, we shouldn't be offended too much)
    I hope various interview, photoshoots and all that inevitable glamour will help Meryl and Charlie to get some recognition they deserve tho.

    Yeah, the most disappointing thing about these Olympics for me has been the lack of enthusiasm from the crowds for all but their own. They acted like they were at a funeral most times until a Russian skater stepped on the ice and only then did they come alive. I heard an announcer say that when Plushenko had to pull out, many in the audience got up and left! Gee, way to support all the skaters people!

    I bet the IOC will be loathe to give another Olympic games to Russia anytime soon.
