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 remember the first time I saw Evgenia. It was on YouTube, and she was competing at her first senior Russian Nationals. And already I felt that she was stellar, and I also thought, when I grow up to be a big ice skating girl, I hope to skate like her.
