[Nick McCarvel: In 2006, what was the number one song on the U.S. charts when you went to the Olympics?]
Um...[long pause]...See I'm that person that'll hear a Rhianna song like a year after it was popular, and I think it's cool. I'm your grandmother. Welcome to me being a grandmother. I feel like if it wasn't, it should have been...The Way We Were by Barbra Streisand.
[Nick McCarvel: Well, it wasn't quite that year. It was Beyoncé Check On It. What about in 2010? Do you remember 2010 when you went to the Olympics in Vancouver? What were you jamming out to?]
A lot of Russian techno-pop. But if it wasn't, it should have been The Way We Were by Barbra Streisand.

(according to McCarvel, the top song in 2010 was TiK ToK by Ke$ha.)
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.
