Johnny Weir

Whether witty or wise, controversial or charming, shocking or silly, sweet or sassy, provocative or profound, inspiring or infuriating--or any combination of those--Johnny Weir, the three-time U.S. Champion, two-time Olympian, and World medalist figure skater, almost always says something worth quoting whenever he commentates a skating competition, makes a TV appearance, gives an interview, holds a press conference, writes, tweets, or is caught on video. His quotes needed to be collected and shared; hence this blog.

It's funny, I can't even tell you the amount of times I've been congratulated on being the Olympic champion from Vancouver--and I was sixth.

And I suppose my plight in Vancouver--how well I performed and the public's outrage to me not winning--I think that's made me very relevant because in many ways, I became sort of the people's champion., "Weir: Writer, Pop Star" by Aimee Berg, January 17, 2011
