    Have you not seen these performances?

    This is before Rachael Flatt came on the scene, so it's understandable that you wouldn't be aware.

    I love my potential. I kiss it, caress it, polish it. I stare at the abyss of my potential and I see the vortex of eternity and heaven...

    And after Rachel Flatt exited the scene and moved on, the same loser is still trying to stay relevant. #awarethat

    This is so silly. What a sad case of narcissism.

    Well, they wouldn't be the first couple to do that. Did they get married in New York? I remember Johnny was on The Joan Rivers Show a couple of years ago and discussed it. He said they got married at City Hall and that it was very informal and that he only wore jeans (which is a bit TOO casual, IMO).

    It sounded like they had even had some discussions about religion since Victor is Jewish and Johnny said he might even convert to Judaism, particularly if they adopted kids and wanted to raise them one way. Since Joan is a Jewish girl, she was quite interested in the whole subject and asked Johnny one or two other personal questions, as well...

    Wow - watching Atonal at the 2005 Nats just proves my point about Johnny's triple axel AND skating with Priscilla Hill. I loved Dick Button's comment about his artistic athleticism. Well put!
    The performance was 9 years ago!!! I'd say there are some modern day skaters that could take some guidance for how to deliver a performance!!!

    Yeah, I cringed at that whole episode.

    I have mixed feelings about Johnny, too. On the one hand, he has some talented aspects to his skating and has gone through some challenging ups and downs in his career, and it also took some courage to come out and talk about being gay.

    On the other hand, there are times when he has acted in a shallow manner (eg. the shopping sprees referenced above) which in some ways reinforced the negative stereotypes that figure skaters, especially those that are gay, are shallow and obsessed with clothes. That was not helpful. When you are supposed to be training as a serious competitive athlete, it's not good to tell people you want to buy 30 pairs of shoes and 40 fancy hats!

    My coach just lamented the other day how the current programs are so focused on transitions etc. that we rarely see skaters really holding a landing edge, as they move directly form the landing to footwork. She referred specifically to Johnny's beautiful landing positions and how he showed his control of the edge upon landing. She feels that that is a category of difficulty that is not rewarded these days. When you look at Johnny's landings in that 2005 Nationals performance, you can see exactly what she meant. Sigh.

    Especially when in the next breath you are begging them for money...for a comeback you don't even plan on carrying out.

    Johnny's latest Facebook post:

    I'm so sorry for what I've done.

    https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyGWeir?fref=ts

    Not sure what he means by that. Perhaps he will say more, or perhaps he wants to tease the public by hinting at more to come.

    ----------

    As mentioned earlier in this thread, it has emerged that Johnny's Facebook was hacked and he says he didn't post the above message on FB.

    And now Johnny's mom Patti is adding her voice to this story:

    Brushing up with Merriam-Webster, BOTTOM-FEEDER (noun) an opportunist who seeks quick profit usually at the expense of others
