I hope everyone's okay with the thread title. It seemed to one that people liked.
Yes, it's perfect for what is possibly their last Olympics.
Yay new thread! I had friends over for dinner, and we watched the ice dance FDs together. Needless to say, Meryl and Charlie made a few new fans; they were totally blown away. They didn't believe me when I said they weren't a romantic couple "17 years and they haven't dated? Not even a little?" Sometimes I forget that it's not normal for two people to look lovingly into each others' eyes while not being a couple...
Where are these backstage pictures people were talking about in the other thread? I'm in Canada and I don't get to see a lot of this stuff if it isn't in this thread.
ETA: Also what was the Tiny Meryl and Charlie that was mentioned?
I was just going to post the exact same question XD
On a side note: all of my friends who normally think skating is a waste of their time tuned in to meryl and charlie because I wouldn't shut up about it ^_^ this mightn't sound like a big deal, but the team events were on like from 2am- 5am for us, so for a non skating fan, that's pretty extreme. Needless to say they've all been converted
I have no idea what that Tiny Meryl and Charlie quote was about. As to the backstage stuff, you'd have to be watching the NBC network's coverage to have seen that.
I think Tiny Meryl and Charlie might've been in reference to the videos of them skating as kids that they showed during the moms fluff on NBC. It was the same fluff that was on the Today show.
At the end of the ladies team LP, they showed one of M/C's fluff pieces focusing on The Moms.
NBC showed the fluff piece about their moms and it had video of them when they started skating together.
Oh I see...guess that comment went right over my head.
Go over to meryl-charlie.com to see awesome photos of the FD today.
Marina's costume change footage is the best thing ever. Almost worth waiting through 75 hours of slopestyle for.
they should have just given her one, reversible jacket!
I think the audio was out of sync in the feed this morning, because the timing was much better in prime time.
That is the biggest smile I think Meryl has had in the K&C for a long time.
Perfect thread title. Can't believe I've been following this thread from before it even had a number!
I know! I've been here from the start essentially as well. Feels like forever ago.
Love the thread title and thanks everyone for making this thread a joyous place to be!
Davis and White and Ice Dancing are trending on Twitter, and the Tweets are amazing. Apparently it's not just us.
Another article with cute "when they were kids" photo
This article certainly has a unique perspective: Charlie is prettier than Meryl!
ETA: I don't like that there is nowhere to make a comment on that article, at least not that I can see. I'm not one for leaving comments on articles typically, but that was a horrible article, even leaving that poorly thought out angle.
I have to disagree with some of the author's points: Meryl is ridiculously beautiful, full stop. Not that looks should matter...but geez, doesn't he have eyes?
Both Meryl and Charlie have hit the genetic jackpot.
What an idiot reporter.
This twitter from some random guy cracked me up.
Now I want to find the first thread and reminisce!
I think we can say that Meryl and Charlie have finally established that elusive romantic connection. My mom's comment during their free dance: "Get a room!"
Blast from the past:
Meryl Davis and Charlie White Thread #1!
Wow, I discovered D/W randomly through youtube like a week after that first post! Meant to be?
I do think there was one or two older threads about Meryl and Charlie that petered out after 5 pages or so, but I wasn't around for those.
I'm entertaining myself reading all of the comments on a twitter search of "ice dancing".
NBC showed Putin clapping after Meryl and Charlie's FD. It was nice to see the crowd loudly after they saw Shez.
This is what I get for being able to choose my ice dancers and not my country lol. Ah well, maybe something will crop up on Tumblr. I did see the Today show fluff piece though.
