    Unpopular Opinions

    Five pages in, and no one has dared to say this yet? What Eteri’s young students do on the ice, though technically impressive, to me seems closer to gymnastics than to skating. I don’t find it aesthetically pleasing, and I don’t enjoy it. I especially dislike Dani G’s choreographic style.

    And—Alison was born in the US and presumably retains her US passport. Plus she and Saulius trained in the US up until recently, with Zueva in FL. I think they would be the easiest to invite.

    Wait—is this a different new partner for Kolesnik? I thought he was pairing with a Russian?

    The Dance Hall 9: Bring the Bling or No Beijing 2021-2022

    I suspect what will happen is, the lift will go un-remarked upon for most of the season and then, at the worst possible time, they will take just a moment or two longer to get through it, it will be just a little bit off and then boom—it gets disqualified. Kind of like what happened at Four...

    Here’s my question. Does this new pair automatically get named to the Team, or do they have to compete first?

    This sounds hilarious—though I can’t quite picture the Midnight Blues being skated to it.
