    If Johnny's writing it, I'm buying it. I'm looking forward to reading about more drama and scandal behind the scenes. It'll keep me busy during the off-seasons.

    A while ago, shortly after the Olympics and even at Worlds time, Johnny Weir stated that he was planning to continue competitive skating. He wanted to win medals, Johnny stated, so he would completely rework himself and his skating. To me, it sounded like he was planning to adhere more to the rules of COP judging, or even perhaps to fortry a different kind of style of skating from what he had done during the majority of his skating career.

    Now he is planning to write a book about his life and figure skating; some say that it will be a "tell-all" with plenty of "dirt" about fellow skaters and skating politics, including the USFSA. Do any of you GoldenSkaters or other skating forum fans think that this book may be closing the curtain on Johnny's competitive career?

    I believe so. I don't think Johnny really has the intention of coming back next season.

    I honestly don't think Johnny ever truly desired to come back next season. If he does this tell all book he's going to shoot himself in teh foot several times over (and then play poor poor pitiful me, no doubt).

    he better start work on his own show now, because he's going to be completely unhirable if he doesn't start using common sense know when to keep it shut, boy!
