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.

He doesn't have a backup plan. Patrick Chan can miss the jumps but still skates beautifully and has beautiful vehicles to drive.

[Tara Lipinski: Very poetic there, Johnny. What vehicle are you talking about?]

Well, definitely a dragon.
