    Trust me, no editor or ghostwriter comes up with stuff like this. It's arch-Johnny, and brilliant, as always. I laughed out loud at least three times!

    Two things jumped out at me:

    Not a single mention of Evan. That Worlds Gold crushed him. I hope to God he can get his inner warrior going this summer.

    His interest in being a goodwill ambassador to Korea. And maybe Russia. He would be literally the funniest ambassador ever.

    Overall: what a wonderful guy. I can't help lovin' that man!

    I don't think he mentioned any American skaters; really anyone other than Yu-Na, and with all due respect to Evan Lysacek, her performance at Worlds had more of a wow factor. To me it reads like Johnny just needed to get away from the US figure skating scene for a bit. IIRC, after Worlds he said he was happy for Evan or proud of him (or something like that), but very jealous. Which is a very Johnny thing to say .

    It's always entertaining to read his journals.
    I'm not saying he didn't draft the journal. Just wondering if there might be another writer/editor involved. I don't know but I understand his fans assuming it's total Johnny,.

    btw, what does Evan have to do with this topic? He's the World Champion - over and out.

    He did mention Evan, though not Lysacek, but Bates

    Really enjoyed this entry.

    Are you sure you're not just trying to stir up some drama, for drama's sake?!

    No one is going about questioning the veracity of others' journal entries, yet Johnny's must be an elaborate conspiracy. Sometimes a spade is just a spade.
