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.

[Tara Lipinski: She really upset the applecart in the short program...Can she seize the day, Johnny?]

She upset the applecart? What is that?

[Tara Lipinski: Never heard it before?]

Nope.

[Tara: Terry?]

[Terry Gannon: A "rainbow and sparrows" guy never heard of that? That's a saying, John. Get with it.]

Triple applecart, double applecart, double applecart. Triple lutz, double toe loop, double loop. Shake it up, Satoko-san.
