Quite possibly the worst event in the Olympics.

It's a toss up between the Americans, but I'm going with Davis/White.

Kirkland doesn't think Ice Dancing should be an Olympic competition, but since it is, we choose Davis/White.

Sadly, our Sports Minister's shadow was cast upon quarters-sharer Belbin and her crazy-haired partner, so Goldenland will have to assume the judges will be eager to hear local cries.


Virtue/Moir, please
