Couple or Not? Ice Dance Edition

We’re back for another round of Couple or Not? You can’t do pairs and not ice dance too. Although I’m a little sad. We probably won’t play this again for awhile now. Maybe we will notice new and up-and-coming teams that on whom we can speculate later. Once again, in order to help gauge couple compatibility we turned to the team ISU bios. Shared hobbies increase the likeliness of couple-dom and shared physical activities outside of skating put it through the roof! Am I right? I’m pretty sure I’m right.

Just as a reminder –

*We have not actual real knowledge on this subject. Our answers are purely based on our gut, intuition, spidey-senses, things we may have heard in the past, if we are remembering correctly, match making skills and wishful thinking. We should also make it clear that we are hopeless romantics.*

Couple or Not? Pairs Edition

This is a little game my sister and I play every now and then just to entertain ourselves and freely speculate on other people’s lives. Not that it matters in the least whether a dance or pair team are a couple or not but it can be interesting to try to guess based on their skating and body language.

Some of the game has been spoiled a bit by social media and becoming an addicted skating fan. In short, in some cases we just know too much for playing to be any fun but in other cases, I think we could play a round…

After we considered our initial impressions, to help us a little in our decision making we turned to the the team ISU Bios. They can be surprisingly illuminating if one chooses to read between the lines (with the risk that everything you conclude is completely wrong). I feel that in general shared hobbies, and shared physical activities outside of figure skating  in particular, are a positive sign when considering couple-dom or degree of compatibility between said couple or non-couple, as the case may be. (Scott and Tessa both list golf. Enough said.)

*We should make it clear that we did no reconnaissance or research in preparation for this game. Our answers are purely based on our gut, intuition, spidey-senses, things we may have heard in the past, if we are remembering correctly, match making skills and wishful thinking. We should also make it clear that we are hopeless romantics.*

So… Welcome to Couple or Not? This time around, let’s looks at the Pairs! (I feel like there should be intro music here…) Our contestants today are Gwen and Jess. Who are we starting with? … Denny and Frazier!
