    It really isn't. I think the USFSA is behind pushing the heterosexuality of male skaters.

    Weiss is good as well as PC, but I think Johnny is more interesting, witty and insightful. Still Weiss is doing a pretty good job, and I'm glad they realized there's no need for 3 people in the booth.

    I just started feeling really nostalgic for the days of Weiss's greasy slicked back hair, relentless macho posturing, hypermasculine characters he'd always attempt to portray in his routines and dysfunctional family relations put on show. It was all absolutely amazing, in a terrifying way, and you could write a gender studies thesis on it all. :P

    I really enjoyed Weir - thought there were a few over the top moments but overall, loved his commentating. It might be precisely for that reason that I'm surprised I like anyone else, and perhaps in that sense, especially Weiss. So, my hat's off to him.

    Just shows how vanilla those days were - fans had to make the drama! Now the skaters do.

    Oh Michael, I will never forget all the drama from back when he competed.
    No he does not mention his family. But, I get why you are saying it. Back in the days the media made a point of it. "Like wow, a guy with a family that skates"

    It's funny, I thought J.Weir would be a train wreck, instead he is wonderful, and no, he is not P.C., but he brings certain truths to light. I guess that is the problem.

    No seriously! I guess I never caught her when she was on tv... I don't even remember seeing her when she was part of PChiddy's coaching team.

    ^I don't know why this cracks me up, but it does (and not making fun at all!!!!). Anyway, glad you got to see her in the flesh! I know people criticize, but in terms of body of work, I really admire her a lot. And, she seems like a likable person too!

    I really admire Jonathan a lot and so hope he knows how special he is; I really appreciate his nationals appearances a lot; sure, I wish he could go further, but he's been, for me, a very special moment at nationals for sometime now and I just love it/him.
    Jonathan is such a wonderful skater, coach and person. I thought his skate was wonderful! All the guys so far skated great!
