The Shib Sibs are Sochi-bound

Brother-and-sister ice dance pair Alex and Maia Shibutani earn a spot on the U.S. Olympic team

Snubs aside, a big congratulations to the folks earned themselves a spot on the U.S Olympic figure skating team, including two of my favorites, brother-and-sister ice dance pair Alex and Maia Shibutani, aka the "Shib Sibs." The pair brought down the house and took the bronze medal with their Michael Jackson-themed free skate on Saturday at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

Here's video of the performance that sent them Sochi-bound:

Did I mention that they're adorable?

Congratulations also go to ice dancers Madison Chock and Evan Bates, as well as pairs figure skaters Felicia Zhang and Nathan Bartholomay, who will all skate in Sochi for Team USA. Seriously -- who fists pumps while in the middle of a pairs figure skating lift? Felicia Zhang. That's gangster.
