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 love seeing how they decide that a certain shoe would sell at "Pay Less" stores for $12, and a shoe that looks similar would sell at Manolo Blahnik's for $580. It's kind of like deciding how one girl at Worlds who does seven triples ends up in 12th place, and another girl who also does seven triples is in first.
