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.

Throughout my whole career, there was just so much stress and so much build up for every event that I wasn't able to enjoy it. Now I can come back and completely enjoy it as I have a life. I had the opportunity to build my life and to build my roster of things that I'm capable of doing outside of an ice rink. So I don't have the pressure of this being, you either win the Olympics--or you work at Home Depot.
