I'm discouraged by their selection. If both Christina/Anthony and Chock/Bates keep their respective rhythm dances they'll both be skating to Too Darn Hot. Then Christina/Anthony will skate to Doctor Zhivago, which was previously used by Chock/Bates. Christina/Anthony are practically asking for the comparison.
Sooner or later the fog will clear, Chock/Bates and Papadakis/Cizeron and Hubbell/Donahue will retire and they will fly to Montreal, period.
Igor has really fallen unto lean times without Marina. It's not for nothing that Zhighansin hated working with him.
