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.

I was trying to look around desperately for that giant cowbell that their teammate Alexander Gazsi, who we'll see in the ice dance competition, brought to the team event, and I was looking everywhere to see it ringing.

[Terry Gannon: Do you hear it?]

[Tara Lipinski: Where is the cowbell?]

Where is the cowbell? I don't hear it. And they were great in the team competition, and today, it wasn't their day so you have to think that may be that cowbell was lucky.
