If both teams compete, and DW finish second, it won't diminish their Olympic gold, or any of their other accomplishments.
    Be that as it may but if both were to compete and D/W would get only second, I don't want to imagine the outcry and finger-pointing that the Olympics were all fixed and that's proof.

    Any news on their exhibition music?? I'd love to see something like Happy by Pharrell Williams
    "Eve was not taken out of Adam's head to top him, neither out of his feet to be trampled by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected by him, and near his heart to be loved by him."

    Wait, is there a chance that V/M are going to Worlds? I thought they were done.

    I think the USFS will want them to go to guarantee that we have 3 spots for next year's Worlds. With their retirement that will not be a slam dunk like in the past few years.

    I think the C/B and the Shibs would really have to mess up, which they don't typically do, not to get three spots.

    Awwww...I just now noticed they added Meryl and Charlie's picture to the list of all the U.S. gold medalists on the wallpaper.

    Well, going by their Olympic finishes, C/B and the Shibs wouldn't hold 3 spots. The total has to be 13 or less, right?? So, not so automatic anymore, which would be a shame with A/E and H/D deserving of being at Worlds as well..

    Assuming DW and VM both skip World's, I would think it would be easy for the U.S. to secure the three spots, with those two teams out of the way plus PB, as well. I mean, C/B and the Shibs both placed in the top ten at the Olympics.

    Yeah, remember that the Shibs and C/B might not have made the cutoff on their own at the Olys, but they move up an automatic two spots if V/M and D/W don't go, and that would pretty much do it, right? Not to mention other teams not going as well.

    And for those convinced they detest each other, take this:
    No matter what Meryl and Charlie decide to do next, Davis and White say they will remain friends for life. In fact, they already have plans to take a trip together next year.

    The podcast is finally back up, and it's excellent. Anyone who hasn't listened to this yet, I would encourage them to do so. Dave I think put his finger on the whole situation with DW and VM and their respective programs this year--what worked, what didn't, the major differences between the two teams (he even did things like watching the programs and counting the number of crossovers each team did, the number of "skipping/ hopping" to put to rest the arguments about DW's supposedly lousy technique). He also had some interesting thoughts on the Canadian media. At the end, he and Emily talked about changes the Shibutanis would need to make, if they keep competing. I also loved, loved, loved his point about every four years people discovering skating, and a lot of articles popping up in the media that lack context and background. This might be one of the best podcasts he's ever done.
