    Looking forward to the Ottawa show - attending with 4 friends and then having our annual potluck supper afterward to rehash the show
    Can't skate but love to watch

    Virtue, Moir and Patrick Chan (starting at 4-min. mark) are interviewed in Halifax: http://globalnews.ca/video/1288406/s...e-halifax-stop

    Moir, in response to "What's next?", replied: "We probably won't compete for the rest of this calendar year" and Virtue said they were not ruling anything out.

    Midori,
    The weather is getting a bit better though it was so cold yesterday morning that I had to yank my sweater out.

    I think Nam posted the same thing on Twitter.

    I wonder if his recent win as Junior World Champion led to the organizers deciding to invite him?

    You're welcome Sylvia! For some reason, videos embedded in blogger don't always work if you're viewing from mobile or a tablet or something... who knows? I'm no technology buff... haha. At any rate, here's a direct link to the video of the finale:

    http://youtu.be/UorLsxYSZL4

    I have several more pictures I didn't include (many turned out blurry) but there are some that didn't. If anyone's looking for anything specific, just shoot me a message with your email address.

    I was at the show last night too. I scored excellent seats, row D, behind the players bench, centre ice (right on the red line).

    I thought the show was excellent. Made me realize how privileged we are to have such a wealth of skating talent in Canada and get to see such a great show every year.

    Highlights for me were:

    'stompa' with Kurt, Joannie, and Patrick. No one moves as good as Kurt Browning. He amazes me every time I see him with how good he really is. Dude can MOVE.

    Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje. Love them and it was a real treat to see them skate their FD. Andrew is the hottest thing on skates and he even looks good in day-glo yellow with lime green jeans....lol!

    Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. Loved both their numbers but especially 'Putting on my top hat.' Their edges really are silent. It's almost eerie.

    Loved 'Try' with both Tessa and Scott and Kaitlyn and Andrew. I think that was my favorite of the night. Just gorgeous.

    Meghan Duhamel and Eric Radford were great showing us why they have been so successful this past season.

    I really enjoyed Patrick Chan's skates too, in particular the one with Michael Buble singing the Vanessa Williams song "Save the Best for Last."

    Overall, it was a great show. It won't disappoint and I only wish I could see it again.
    I'm not spoiled...I deserve all my stuff.

    I really hope someone will upload videos of Shawn soon! Will the show be aired on Canadian tv and if so, when?
