<<Okay, am I the only one who thinks they're coverage was deplorable? I've
been dying to see this performance with Elvis and Laurent Tobel and they
don't even show the finale! I can just imagine haw many other things
they edited out. Where can I write to complain? >>
I'm guessing ABC Sports? There's probably an address or an email on the ABC
sports web page.
I'm sorry we missed the finale, and we didn't even get the full shot of Anton
as he presented Maria to the ice and the audience. I enjoyed the beautiful
skate by B&S, but I wanted to slug Terry Gannon when as it was building to a
climax he started filling the silence by nattering for the zillionth time about
the judging controversey. He had nothing to say, he just repeated what had
been said - it sounded like he thought it was time for someone to speak. It
was a very lovely performance and I wish he'd shut up.
Elena and Anton always had all the potential but I'm amazed at how much they've
become a "pair" on the ice. Anton has really stepped up to the strong, steady,
gentleman thing in his "role", and Elena is becoming less poker faced.
Remembering a quote of Anton's where he (as a compliment) sort of compared
Elena to a man in her strength and said he wished he was more like her, it
appeared to me that Elena almost "presented" Anton in a few of the images they
struck in this number - Anton would spiral and she'd sort of "present" his
spiral or support it. It almost seemed like an intentional choreographic
interpretation of Anton's description of Elena, that she's the strong one.
Also, and this is total speculation since I can't read minds and have no info,
but my perception is whatever was going on with Elena was not a problem between
Elena and Anton, but something about Elena, and Elena's seeming to ignore
Anton's support or attention after their Worlds performance was, I believe, an
indication of Elena's attitude about herself at the time, not a comment on
