    Johnny gets a talking to from the USFSA

    Apparently he crossed the line with his drug comment, and the USFSA plan to speak to him about it:

    Rocky Marval is Johnny's representative. Is this Isabelle Brasseur's hubby?

    After winning the short program Thursday, he was careful to point out that the accessory around his neck was a scarf, not a boa.
    Well duh, everybody knows that Johnny only wears boas for formal occasions.

    When they call Johnny on the carpet, I hope he is wearing his swan costume. That way, he can hold up his red glove and say, "talk to the beak."

    ...long story (but fun..). Right now I'm sporting Johnny's autograph on the back of my right hand. Wish I had known he was being dissed for exercising his right to free speech when I talked to him earlier today - I would have mentioned support for that too. Mean time, when I head back to the arena in a very short bit, I will look for some opportunity to stick up for him. Heck - with the ABC crew (part of it anyway) there should be SOME opportunity to create.

    Out of one side of America's mouth comes a very sacred right to free speech. And then out of the other side of the mouth, comes organizations, bosses, masses, etc. that all get busy supressing it. It's either everyone's right (including possible consequences) or it's not.

    OK - Off soap box now.

    CDMM, the exact quote is towards the end of the story. This is just a guess but the first skater has the style of someone like Matt Savoie and the second is someone like Evan Lysacek (I think).

    Johnny was talking about himself (cognac and cigarettes) and Ryan Bradley (vodka and coke).

    Maybe there's a special reason for the twinkle in Ryan's eyes. JUST KIDDING! Drugs aren't funny, but I come from the era when they were--or at least we thought they were. For a while anyway, you sure can party hardy with them and I'd be a hippocrite if I said I regretted using the ones I did.

    But I only played with coke at parties and with my boyfriend for a few months. When I woke up one morning feeling as if I'd been dragged several miles by a truck, I stopped. Too many others were not so lucky and got into serious problems, like prison, that ruined their health for many years and their careers permanently. Plus a lot of wonderful people lost a lot of wonderful years and sometimes their lives, especially if they graduated to smack.

    But speak out, Johnny! I mean really, they were just analogies. Still, I can see the USFSA's position. A lot of kids look up to these skaters and aren't yet old enough to understand the difference between natural flamboyance and dangerous behavior.

    And to Mathman:
