A new end pose for the FD. Something that (should they win ) will be an iconic image.
I'm still torn on something else: whether or not their potential win at the GPF will be a good or a bad sign. Lol I know these days they don't really give us anything to worry about so we come up with silly stuff like this, but still. If they win the GPF, we will be wanting them to have another undefeated season, which would be great... but how possible? On the other hand a win in Fukuoka would strenghten their reputation as world #1, as well as their confidence. Would send them to Sochi as leaders. But then again, it makes me think about 2010.
I know, I know, I'm creating my own problems Still, I think whoever wins the GPF will affect the Olys, one way or another.
Ugh, I feel the same way. As of right now, I think they're at a better place to win the GPF, especially combined with V/Ms bad GP luck. It seems almost inevitable they'll win, assuming that don't have a bad fall. I think V/M will really need the next couple months to improve their FD.
But I would hate for them to be punished for winning. I don't think they will, I think the judges are favoring their program this season *and* they haven't committed to Worlds yet, right? So that wouldn't be a perfect season, if they didn't go.
More DaiMeryl fan art!!
^ lol is the little face at the bottom Charlie?
That fan art just made me realize how much of a hair couple they would be!
Either Charlie or Gracie Gold.
(Just kidding, but the blond hair and big smile made me think of the "Does Gracie have too big a smile thread".)
For a moment, it looked like it was Apolo Ohno.
LOL at Charlie in the corner with both flags.
Less than a week until GPF!
Here's to hopefully a 5th consecutive GPF title! They've got the programs, the drive, the scores, and history behind them
YES!!! I will be rooting so hard for them to have two amazing performances!
Don't forget the Japanese crowd. They're great to everyone, but they love M/C. It's better than a home crowd tbh.
That's true. I am excited to see what changes they have done, especially now that Alex Wong has been helping them.
I wonder what costumes we'll see. Charlie's FD costume is all set IMO.
Meryl's SLC FD costume is my favorite costume she's ever worn. The cut and design is perfect. I don't know if that design works in a stronger color, but that dress in teal would be spectacular.
So excited! Gooooo Meryl and Charlie!
I love the pink dress for their short but I thought the lavender dress was absolutely exquisite and I'm really hoping it makes another appearance soon
I think the light color was a huge part. It kind of blended into to her skin giving her a delicate ethereal appearance.
I'm trying to go into this without too many expectations. I just hope they skate well and dazzle the audience. Whatever else happens, happens. I'm going to think about this positively, even if they lose the GPF it will be nice for T/S to win one before they retire.
I am hoping their SD costumes stay untouched. For SD, I hope they nail that midline finally and get it the level 4 it deserves!
For FD definitely new costume for Meryl, like I said many times, one that matches Charlie's outfit a bit more. I also liked the SLC dress better, it was more delicate and delicate always looks good on Meryl. As far as the dance goes, maybe the transition before the last step sequence. And a new end pose. Other than that, everything is great.
I feel like I harp on this, but would it honestly kill NBC to feature Meryl and Charlie in just one Olympic promo? During the Holiday skating show, NBC showed a promo featuring medal winners from Vancouver, except figure skating, they chose to show Gracie Gold.
I'm annoyed by the lack of attention they give M/C too, but I think Pandora sponsors Gracie. That might be one reason why she got a spotlight in this particular show.
All this silly ubber talk of D-W not have any NBC promotion, all in dream mind of D-W ubber. But you can dream wonderful dream
Two of those links were from Vancouver and the others were from October. No one said they didn't have any NBC promotion, but should have more considering they are Olympic medalists and World Champions.
Recent media coverage of D-W
Everyone watch less TV, more internet now what do you expect Even D-W make friends with judges on Facebook, this is smart journey to Sochi
They do great PR work on Twitter just ask Tanith Belbin and Evan Bates
To say nothing of Gracie being neither a National champion nor a World or Olympic or GPF medalist. She's been on one World team and has not had the best GP season this fall. Meanwhile, DW are Olympic silver medalists, 2-time World champs, 5-time National champions, and 4-time GPF champs. Based only on competitve results, it's hardly unreasonable to wonder why they aren't featured more prominently in NBC's advertising for Sochi.
Why must D-W get featured in this Pandora Skating Special if they are not even skating in it Gracie is sponsored by Pandora, this show is called Pandora unforgettable holiday moments on ice not Kelloggs on Ice or Ralph Lauren on ice or Puffs on Ice or Judy Blumberg and co on ice
Wow, you took the time to research articles on a team you don't seem to like?
D-W are not same thing as D-W ubbers
Very possible. It's still frustrating to see the attention Gracie gets in general, given she doesn't really have the competitive record IMO to back up the hype. I'd rather not see MC ignored until 2 days before the dance competition in Sochi, then declared losers or chokers if they don't take gold. Just call me a crazy "ubber."
These comments don't really support the idea that you like D/W, but you just don't like their fans.
I should have added--sponsors might really want to think about who they sign up, and NBC might also want to think about who they hype to hell and back. Wasn't there a US pairs team that Coke sponsored, and they didn't even make the team for the Olympics? LOL, oops!
ITA! And I also don't understand why Gracie gets so much hype in general. She's got amazing potential to be really really good, but I don't think we will see the best she can give until later on in her career, and I think she should be aiming for 2018 olympics in terms of medals. Whereas Ashley gets significantly less promotion than Gracie (although she has been getting a lot more as of late) despite being our best shot at a medal outside of dance, and Meryl and Charlie get almost none despite being our only realistic chance at gold in figure skating! It is very frustrating.
