But seriously, it's a great pic of Charlie and it gives me an opprotunity to expound upon all of you my love of Meryl Davis and Charlie White. Fact of the day...I've met Meryl's mom and Charlie's sisters...no joke.
I was totally "that guy" at the Four Continents Cup in Vancouver when their placement went up after their free dance and they had actually won. There was this huge sigh of dissapointment over the crowd (obviously they wanted Canadians Virtue and Moir to win) with me jumping up and down screaming "YES!" I felt that crowds pain when, at the World Championships, the complete opposite happened and Meryl and Charlie had to settle for fourth...off the podium. The guy in the stands was cheering loudly at that result and I felt like saying, "Dude...you're in the Staples Center...in L.A...in the U.S." I didn't.
They totally had a breaththrough season and I think they must be considered contenders for an Olympic Medal. Hell, for that fact, I think they will challenge Belbin and Agosto at National's in defense of their National Title.
Charlie...have your fun on the Links while you can...next season will be the toughest you've ever experienced.
While I'm thinking about it...let's rewind back to that glorious night in Vancouver...shall we.
