Wouldn't they need to be nearly perfect to beat the Americans though?

Currently they have a bunch of teams that enter the qualifying tournament and the winner gets to represent the US. They mentioned the possibility of creating more of an "all-star" team instead (like GBR does I guess).

Fantastic. With the lead they had going in, that should be enough.

Great skate. I like how they invoke so much emotion from people to say that they should be couples...it means the illusion of the dance worked.
