 I'm happy for them. It's nice to finally see them win out on a close
decision, especially after last year's Nationals competition.

 I bet they were p%$%^% off, but from what I heard, they singled a throw
double axel, andplayed it conservative by doubling the triple toes,,etc..
I rememeber watching Todd (at either the Worlds or Nationals)punching a
wall and kicking things when he and Jenni had a bad performance. She
didn't look to happy the other night. I wonder if she made him sleep on
the couch.

  I can see these pairs fighting for the upperhand over the next few
years.

 I am not crazy about this pair. Maybe its because they are still young
and still need some maturing on the ice andI have no prblems with
brothers and sisters skating together, but, well, I find it kinda creepy.
I think when I think of pairs, or dance ouples, I like to see the
chemistry and the passion and the romance, and its not possible with a
brother and sister. I could never imagine dancing or skating with my
brother is pairs. I guess it would be more difficult since you have to
put your trust in your sibling. My 17 year old brother (almost 3 years my
junior)sat down and watched the event and he told me that he would like
to throw me up in a double twist and watch me fall on my butt, or throw
me into the crowd, etc.. Brothers!  Christina

Actually, I think I can see Shelby quitting in the next couple years to
pursue singles.  Brian has fabulous presentation skills, and I think is
the more "showy" one of the pair, but he has been inconsistent in the
technical elements.  Shelby is a terrific jumper, but is just not very
exciting to watch (IMO).  I think Brian and Shelby are only well
matched in size, and not much else.
