Yes, sometimes the best announcers are not necessarily the ones with the most medals. The two skills are different and don't always intersect in the same person.

It seems that as part of a US Embassy program, Weir will teach a seminar on "expression on ice" with Miki Ando tomorrow in Fukuoka. An officer from the US Embassy will travel with Weir and his manager from Tokyo to Fukuoka.
Regarding the question of whether to take Weir seriously (as a future diplomat and/or elected official) ...:

Evan in latest IFS magazine about his comeback (to FC and to his family): “I explained to them where I was coming from, but it took little convincing to make everyone believe that I was doing it for the right reasons”. I said, “Hey, look you guys, I am not doing this because I have to win again, or because I want more titles. I am not doing this because I have nothing else to do with my life. I am doing it for the most pure reason. I love skating and I am really fortunate that I can still do it.”
I have not found any entry lists for Finlandia yet, but is Weir's tweet suggesting that he will compete there?

Pack your bags! We're going to Finland in October! Goodnight from Fukuoka. Tomorrow Fukui! So excited to see Boginya Anissina!

This season is going to be so exciting. Johnny, Evan, Plushy, Kim, Miki are all come back, and Carolina Kostner and Brian Joubert are choosing to stay! On top of that all the Russian little Divas are blossoming nicely; and of course Hanyu, would he able to top his Romeo last year and cop with his stamina problems? Patrick Chan is very very close to realise his artistic calling considering sparks we saw at his Elegie. He and Yuna seems to be going rogue at the moment, still coach less, and somewhat unsettled and unpredictable. What ever happens. It is going to be sooo exciting!!
The only dream skater I'd like to add to that list is Stephane Lambiel, but I doubt that will ever happen especially with the recent injury trouble. He is producing some amazing work in his exhibitions though which more than compensate for any competitive COP restrictive program.
In a way I don't really care who wins, as long as I sees some great skating
