    I certainly like the programs this year better than the last couple of years. And I agree about the lyrical==I am so glad they didn't take that route.

    I so appreciated their attack at SC! If they can add more speed to both programs, they're going to be real contenders.

    Very happy for them. They seem to be getting more comfortable with the programs. There are so many cool moves in both of them.

    Good for them for not following the stylistic trends of the rest of field and playing to their strengths, though I can only imagine (read: cringe) what Dave Lease's commentary will be if C/B win back the national title (hopefully no tangent along the lines of "they're getting Chris Dean marks"...)

    Im really enjoying the draw this season...like how it used to be...

    It takes away the preconceived idea of who should be placing where.

    For me it says everyone starts with a blank slate instead of "world champion goes last." etc. It makes the competition a bit more exciting to watch. I never liked the idea of lesser skaters skate first and the better ones later. And I felt bad for the "lesser" skaters to perform in a half-filled arena. Anywhooo I would love to see C&B get a draw this time that isnt first.

    There are good things about going first. Fresh ice. No time after warm-up to sit around getting cold and nervous.

    I'm looking on the bright side and I hope Madison and Evan will too.

    On the bright side, this isn't like Worlds with several warm-up groups. Just 6 couples, so judges can't be off by too much.:lol:

    I am hoping that they lay it down, HARD. I don't think it will effect them their score much.

    Maddy and Evan have been skating this program very well all season.

    Do you ever have times in your life when it seems like if you didn't have bad luck you wouldn't have any luck at all? That seems to be where Madison and Evan are right now. What a weird season they are having with twizzles problems and falls.

    Heartbroken for Madi & Evan with the GPF results, but I know they will work hard and be ready for Nationals.

    An interview posted in December on Long Program. In German, but it seems they might have new costumes?

    Speed is not their problem as they are for all intents and purposes already one of the fastest teams

    I only saw them at live once only, in Marseille GPF, they were not faster than Shibs (people often call them slow). However, I am aware that it was not their best competition.
