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.

Statistically, I'd say there are about as many gay figure skaters as there are gay football players. The majority are straight.

That's a bit sad but that's what the world has come down to., "Q&A with figure skater Johnny Weir" by Bonnie D. Ford, January 11, 2011
