    No. It's an international and ISU best score for them, but they had a free dance score of 92.43 at Thornhill in 2012.

    Nevertheless, this was a great accomplishment for them. I think it's what they needed to convince the Canadian judges that they are serious contendors for the third spot.

    I really like the confidence that they displayed here in the free dance.

    It seems like this team always makes mistakes that takes them out of the running. At Nebelhorn they had a lead and let it slip away and finished 3rd and at SC they were 7th after the SD. They are to good to be finishing behind a team like R/T but they have to stop making those silly mistakes. It cost them last year when they finished 4th and couldn't go to Worlds.

    They're training with a team that used to do that too (Weaver/Poje), so I have hope that they will learn mental toughness from their training mates.

    We could use a title from one of the pieces in either their short dance or their free dance (Isu bio with listing of pieces):

    - From their short dance, 'Crazy for you'
    - From their free dance 'Dance for Me'
    - or the one I like the best, from their free dance, 'Going Somewhere'

    Why do I find that you slam every Canadian skater?
    I think they had a great free and early season nerves. I think skating with weaver and poje will help their training and polish them . I see a bright future......

    I don't like "Going Somewhere" only because it's so vague -- are they going somewhere good, or somewhere bad? ;)
