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.

A telltale sign is when you see a lot of snow come up on that landing. You want, you know, a gentle flurry, because it's natural that when you hit the ice, there's going to be a little snow, but when there's a full-on blizzard, that means it was probably under-rotated.
