    Good luck to Keegan at the Nats from me, too!

    Whenever my husband and I watch Keegan's fast and well-centered spins on TV, my hubby clapps his hands hard and my jaws , then, i dont know why but we somehow start laughing! He's such a joy to watch. Also love seeing him and his coaches in the KnC. Goooo Keegan!

    Many congrats to Keegan and his team for a podium finish at the Autumn Classic Int'l this weekend!

    Such a nice start of the season, hopefully getting onto the podium along with the two world champoins will give him a confidence boost as he prepares for the Nationals then to join the team for the Oly Games.

    YES it's possible Keegan. Believe in yourself! Wish him a great and injury-free season.

    I just watched Keegan's programs from Autumn Classic an was pretty impressed with him! It's not often you see a skater do a "carefree" program à la Singing In The Rain or "comical" à la Chaplin as successfully as Keegan just did.
    The guy's a true performer.
