Berezhnaya/Sikharulidze exhibition

        I was blown away by the Chaplin exhibition when I saw it last year
on COI, and I was again last night.  I love the acting that Moskvina's
pairs learn how to do.  Silent movies -- a natural medium for skaters.  If
Sale and Pelletier can engage the western audience with "Love Story," B/S
can do the same with Chaplin, which is older and more global.  I also
respect any skaters who can captivate an audience with a story that isn't
romance -- very difficult.  I think B/S showed their versatility.  I
watched MSNBC's replay of the two pair freeskates (I hadn't seen them
again since the live broadcast) and, sigh, this time I would have given it
to B/S (after watching the respective connecting moves).  Oh well.  It's
good I'm not a judge.  Well, probably I do better when I'm watching live
and/or not nerve-wracked.

I am one of those people who thought Jamie and David won the gold over Elena
and Anton (still do).  But I completely agree about the exhibition program.  It
was charming, athletic, and (since it wasn't for a competition) artistic.  I
loved it.  In another thread, I note that my SO finally noticed Anton, who is
his new favorite skater.
