Seriously, who knows what life has in store for any of us? No matter what happens to Adam in the future, he's very blessed and it seems to me he's taking a positive approach to his skating career and giving it his all. Not everyone can or will make it to the top of the Olympic podium. It's about what you do with what happens to you, what you learn, what you give, and enjoying the moments of that journey. For fans, it's the special moments we'll always remember re our favorite skaters, not how many medals they win or lose. If we're caught up in the medals then we'll never be satisfied and we'll miss the moments that matter most.
I loved Adam's performances at Nats this year and last, along with some other special memories. I wish him the best of luck this coming season.
It's nice to see so many people enthusiastic re Jason's Riverdance, especially in light of the more tepid responses when his program was announced earlier in this thread. From what I've read, many people seem to admire Rohene's choreography, which is still a work-in-progress. Jason is definitely an exceptional skater with a bright enthusiastic personality which I hope he never loses.
Jason, Rohene, and Kori have been a great match and I'm intrigued to see how Jason's new program develops. He moves so beautifully and he interprets the music equally beautifully. While the program already has depth and nuance, it was actually difficult for me to get a good sense of the overall moves and footwork since the video's quality while sharp was not great re Jason's black pants fading into the the black boards. I do feel spoiled when it comes to watching Jason. I can't wait to see his new costumes and see this program's further development in the fall.
