Here's the link to the website:
The USA is a free country and Johnny can and Did wear the CCCP jacket at the Olympics practice without being told to remove it.
I would have been just as offended if he had worn any jacket with any other country name or logo on it to the Olympics. I wonder how China, Japan, Russia or Canada would have felt if their Olympians had worn a USA jacket. Forget the political implications, it was just poor taste and I feel it was done so he could be noticed. If he had put that much effort into skating a perfect free skate (which he is capable of doing), he probably would have been wearing a silver medal back to the US and doing Jay Leno interviews. Now that would have got him noticed.
Not exactly sure what kind of "Timing" you were thinking of, but Johnny had that jacket and wore it at practice at Skate Canada last year. It wasn't just a 2-days before the Olympics thing.Originally Posted by orchid

It was his good luck jacket... but since it didn't bring him good luck, perhaps he'll switch to a boa.
