Formspring.me: This is no sure thing is it...?? what a great skate.

Meryl and Charlie had the tension that they needed tonight, and Virtue and Moir were just a bit too subtle to the same feeling as they gave in Vancouver. But seriously with these two teams, what else can you ask for? I hope they both stick around for a while.

I think Charlie White needs a mans haircut.
I'm serious.. he still looks like kid who's run in from an afternoon of street hockey to skate with his girlfriend... whilst Scott Moir has grown into a man.
There are such tiny niuances that separate them.. I think a make over might make a difference... it's just a thought.

I think judges are ridicoulous. This marks are outrageous to other skaters. It seems to me they established two categories: Gods-on-the earth and human skaters. Particularly in OD I can't see that huge difference. DW and VM are more like Cirque du Soleil artists than dancers. But it seems that nowadays this is good for Ice Dance. And next year Compulsories will disappear...and so will be with dance too. Sadness.

Just watched DW free. I'm shocked. this is not Ice Dance, it's short track! High speed it isn't always good. sorry, I can't see any dance here.

You two have obviously never seen a world class Quick Step then...
Or seen Michael Flatley Irish dance at a rate of 8 taps per SECOND..
Or Baryshnikov doing the solo from Don Quixote...
So if its fast it can't be dancing??
Utter tosh !!

I didn't know that The Phantom of the Opera is a Quickstep or an Irish folk dance. IMHO their speed doesn't fit to music.

But that wasn't what you said Anonymous..
What you said was "High speed isn't always good.. sorry I don't see any Dance here.."
You never mentioned anything about the speed not corrolating to the music.
Nor did I say that D & W were doing an Irish Dance or a Quick Step.. I simply pointed out that just because they ARE fast.. it doesn't mean it ISN"T dance.
That's all...
