    Greats?! Plushenko could be crowned "Greats". Johnny needs something more extraordinary to be called like that.

    I assume NY since he lives there. Interesting. Sometimes I just do not know whether to take him seriously. Originality and creativity is one thing but I hope he does not wear a corset with a dead bird on his hand - of course if he is running in NY who knows - if he can make it there he can make it anywhere - its up to Johnny Weir!

    sorry for my sarcasm, but I am not sure that is a good thing (LOL)

    Plush and Johnny are really good friends, so the two countries could develop friendships and build peace in the world! Using the skating solved the world's problems. It's one part of very interesting interview with Johnny, why he loves Russia so much. Johnny is cute!

    Didn't you hear Johnny do commentary for Ice Network last year? He was pretty darn insightful. That's what I meant by succeeding DButton; I don't expect him to be 2-time Oly Gold Medalist!

    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.

    Not surprisingly, Johnny Weir-Voronov ‏@JohnnyGWeir continues to show his many sides:

    " I'm so proud to be in Japan to represent my country and spread goodwill through sport! http://instagr.am/p/O09CKnhhbY/ "
    3:01 AM - 27 Aug 12

    " I can't wait until @Vitya_Zvesda, Тёма and I live in Tokyo one day. Japan makes me so happy! "
    5:29 PM - 27 Aug 12

    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) ...:

    " Trying to figure out 'which' pink animé outfit to wear to meet US consulate principal officer tomorrow. Which pink? Really Johnny? @cmbenz "

    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

    So the government of USA identifies him as Johnny Weir, Proffessional Figure Skater. Are they trying to jeopardize his come back as an amateur competitor?

    I love this quote. Good for him for coming back because he loves it.
