    Is Brian Joubert Maria Butyrskaya?

    Between the 2006 and 2010 Olympics, both became World champion, on the world podium 3 or 4 times. Both were 3 times Euro champions. What is going on with them? Are they the best skaters to have never medaled at the Olympics?

    Now if only Brian Joubert posed for the now defunct Playgirl, their life stories would be interchangeable.

    Haha! I am pretty sure that many women would not mind if Joubert posed for Playgirl, I know I wouldnt! But seriously, Joubert chocked out there last night. Its obvious that he couldnt handle the pressure this whole Olympic season as well as the 2006 Olympic season. All I can hope is that Joubert does his best and has a SOHL Thursday in his lp program.

    Flattfan, congrats: you have just won for weirdest thread title of the year - and it's only February!

    To answer your question: Butyrskaya was older than Joubert in her last Olympic cycle, and not as competitive with the top skaters. She really did go as far as her talent allowed. The best skater never to have medalled at Olys is Kurt Browning, and it doesn't diminish his achievements as far as I'm concerned - nor has he let it define his life. I wish the same for Brian.

    Playgirl's defuct? I thought Levi Johnston (for all you non-NAs, he's the baby's daddy of the daughter of Pres. hopeful Sarah Palin) recently posed for it.

    I won't have any problem with it but in the meantime, I can enjoy that video with him in those tighty whities.

    But in all seriousness, even though I'm not a fan, I hope he redeems himself and finish his Olympics on a high note.

    Playgirl isn't in print anymore. Only avail in digital version so fans can share and admire easier. =)

    lol, I was going to ask for a wastebasket, but then I saw you were kidding.

    And to answer the thread title, no, Brian is not a transsexual (but it sure would be interesting if he was).

    Brian, the trannie, would be able to compete in the ladies event, and probably would have won gold. 68 in the SP isn't too bad. She can make up in the long with the quads. I bet Brian would trade both his testies for an Olympic gold medal right now. If you squint your eyes enough, Joannie Rochette sorta looks like Brian Joubert in a dress. =).

    Weir? *cringe* I already saw his booty thanks to his show. I don't need to see the rest of Johnny's "gagas". As for Chan...
