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 a very difficult thing to do, to come back to competitive figure skating, and, you know, lucky for me, I don't have the pressure of being the Olympic champion riding on my shoulders as well. I can come back and land some jumps and look beautiful and people will be excited and happy to see me. Evan has the pressure of coming back as the champion.
