Hurray for Nico, Boo to CTV News!





Well, as I hoped from the very begining, from his first audition in Montreal (yeah, a Montrealer!!!) Nico has won the title of Canada's Favourite Dancer on So You Think You Can Dance Canada. Rex Harrington once told him: "You are the reason boys dance", and I believe that. Nico is graceful, sexy, and very masculine when he dances. If Sean wanted to dance, I'd love it! I'd rather attend dance recitals than hockey games, where it's cold, lol!!! Anyway, I truly believe the best has won the title, so that makes me very happy! The fact that he is eye-candy is just a bonus! I'm sad the season is finished though, we wont be seeing him anymore! Maybe he'll go and choreograph Star Academie again this year? We never know...



Anyway, why, you wonder, am I booing CTV News? Well, let me explain. Ever since I got my PVR, I haven't watched a show live. That way, I can FF through the commercials. However, for the SYTYCD finale, I had to watch live. I wanted to see everything as it happened. So I had to sit through the commercials. The live show was playing from 9 to 11 pm. At around 9:15, during the first commercial break, they had the highlights from the newscast coming up at 11pm. So what does Sandi Rinaldo say????? "We'll talk about SYTYCD Canada, where Nico is crowned Canada's favourite dancer"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Uh, helloooooooo! This hasn't happened yet! Okay, there was no doubt in my mind he was winning. But still, that pissed me off! Did they get a tip-off? Did they just assume? Whatever the reason, they dropped the ball on this. I have tried to find somewhere online where other people talked about this goof, but I haven't seen anything yet. I'm highly dissapointed with CTV.

I did a double take on that, but she didn't say he had won. She said something like "We'll see if Nico has been crowned..." yadda, yadda, yadda..

it was still dumb of them.


I'm happy he won. I was also thrilled that Allie may it to top gal. I just wish Danny had made it a little further. I loved watching him.

You know, Claude, I don't think LIVE literally means live in every case (it sure doesn't for us in BC). Still, that was a goof on the news part. Evangeline is happy with the outcome. I was hoping for Allie, because, well, you know... ;-)

BTW - I love that you are sharing these personal LO's. It's an encouragement to me to know that I'm not the only one that battles that monster. Every year around this time I start to wonder if it will be a bad winter (I have SAD, too). I think this one will be one of the better winters - probably because I'll get more daylight when I'm not in an office all day. Looking forward to seeing you on Friday. {{{hugs}}}

hum, come to a hockey game once and you'll see in the majority of places, it's NOT cold!! Most of the time, I'm so comfortable that I have to remove my coat!
I'd still rather my kids do hockey ;) i just HATE dance!!!

I told you I love that page, didn't I? Because I do. It's great, Claude. I'm glad you have an outlet to express your feelings. (((hugs)))
