I absolutely adored Donovan's Capone SP in Brisbane! There's a lot he needs to work on, for sure, but he had such a charming personality and smiled the whole time. I had fun watching him, and those finger guns slayed me. :love:

omg, I just watched the new movie of Pixar Coco and I love it :love::love::love:!!!! I will go back to watch it tomorrow again. Anyway, I was thinking it would be great that Donovan would skate any of the songs, I love especially El latido de mi corazón https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wC8nl9T7HPs

Thank you; I had forgotten about that, I hope there are vids!

Donovan, Jason, Grant, Deanna and Nate ... how much is a ticket to Taipei from the US East Coast?:laugh:

Donovan was great :yahoo: , he got enough points to compete in the senior world championships :agree: , I wonder if he will also participate in the junior world championship?

I hope that Andrea Montesinos also participates this year :pray:

Looking forward to seeing Donovan. That's pretty cool that he'll be at both junior and senior Worlds! He was a huge crowd favorite at 4CC.

Donovan said he planned to change his FS for March 2018 (I really hope he continues with "Hasta que te conocí", he was amazing in 4CC with that routine) :pray:

http://www.posta.com.mx/redes-sociales/video-donovan-carrillo-calienta-el-zocalo-en-gala-de-patinaje : "By March we are scheduled to change my long routine, we will look for music from a Mexican composer, I do not know if Juan Gabriel, but it will be Mexican." The Mexican skater has the Junior World Championship and the Senior World Championship as priorities in 2018.

In countdown to see Donovan and Andrea again :cheer:

Donovan made a personal best in the SP at Senior Worlds. Do try to find a copy of the Olympic Channel coverage, because Ryan Bradley just raved about him in a very heart warming way. Seriously :love:

I would like to see that too. Donovan is such a joy to watch both live and on video. He is natural entertainer.

Here is the only clip so far. No Ryan :cry:

So while I remember it, he said in all his life there is a word he has never used of a skater, pizzazz (Dick Button used to use it of skaters whose performance quality he adored.) He said his commitment to the performance and to entertaining the crowd was exceptional, and reminded him of a young Adam Rippon, that Donovan was young, and had a very bright future, he praised his steps and spins, his ability to stay in character, he said he made him smile all the way throught the program. There was more too. He went on and on :love:
