Sale & Peletier's "Love Story", the next "Rocky Horror"

Sale & Peletier's "Love Story", the next "Rocky Horror"

You can't fight the American media . . . might as well laugh.

When you break down S/P's "Love Story", it's really an AWFUL routine,
but so full of "emoting" that it becomes comical at times. It makes
great fodder for a FS's "Rocky Horror Picture Show".

One of our favorite parts is when he throws her, comes to a DEAD HALT,
then runs after her on his little tippy toes, "emoting" all the way .
. . as we all shout, "Cathy!" and "Heathcliff!"

Another fun part is when they're just skating around, skating around,
miles apart, waiting to set up for the next set up:
"Hey, could we skate backwards for a while? I like skating backwards,
it's fun" --
"Yoooooo hooooooo . . . can you hear me over there?"  --  
"Remember, David, we gotta be goin' REAL slow or I'll never hit this
one".

Or on the lifts:
"UUUGGGHHH -- God, Jamie, you've been hitting the Twinkies again?
***another turn, I'm setting you down NOW"  Plunk.

Your previous post offers so much detail and is without any sense of an
agenda.

Then you ruin any inclination to take your words seriously with this piece
of rhetoric.

Oh well...

I wouldn't go quite *that* far. Detail, it has; agenda, it also has.

You mean you missed all the not-so-subtle jabs at this pair in the
previous post in which she was claiming she analyzed both pairs' programs
element by element, and her comments were basically things like
"Berezhnaya and Sikharulidze were wonderful and balletic and the epitome
of everything skating should be and their mistakes did not count" and
"Sale and Pelletier skated like juniors and did an Ice Capades-quality
program and Jamie was too heavy for David to lift and they were lucky to
get 5.8s"?

It was pretty obvious to me that the poster has a personal agenda. Like
many a Usenet troll, this poster at first came on seriously with all the
stuff about "I'm going to analyze these two programs carefully" and "I
wonder why Sale & Pelletier just didn't do their 'harder' program," and
quicky descended into a diatribe in which the Russians were praised to the
skies and the Canadians mocked out.

This was the inevitable end.
