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.

When they skate to pieces like this one, it's almost as if he is just running behind her to make sure that she's always OK. He puts the jacket down in the puddle, he opens the door for her, it's just very gentlemanly and sweet. And she doesn't have to worry about or think about anything--well, aside from bringing her blade to her head.
