I like his confidence. :)

"First and foremost, I have to do all of my combinations," he admitted. "I'm a constant leave-it-outer. I think I've lost more titles because of double toes than any other skater in history.
"I'm still a little bit old school; I kind of think triple-double-double [combinations] are silly, but hey, they help rack up the points. That's my problem and I have to get over it fast. Like now."
Understatement of the past four years. Glad he finally gets the math.

I feel like kissing the ground right now. He gets it, he finally gets it!

I love your skating, Johnny!

I can't get past the hair in the picture it looks like he is using those "bumps" that are being advertised on TV for $9.99. :wideeyes:

Well, he could do 3-3-2 if he thinks that's less silly :) But yeah, it would be great to see him not leave any points on the table.

I respect him so much for never quitting and I hope good things happen for him. Forget about trying to be perfect, Johnny! Just pretend you're sick and take it one jump at a time!

No kidding! It drives me batty every time he doubles the back end of a combination. But, I will say that he's gotten much better about not totally rechoreographing his programs and has started planning/thinking about how to compensate under the COP if he does totally leave out the second jump.

I hope he can just stay healthy.

I have to admit that "Weir" and "unflappable" are words I didn't expect to see together in a news headline. . .

And yes, Johnny, please ditch the Bump-Its/pompadour look. It's positively dreadful.

Eight pounds in one day?! That is insane.
Man, I love Johnny's candor. There's always this sense of sarcastic wit to his outlook.
I just hope his physical condition can keep up with his positive frame-of-mind; wherein
lies Johnny's weakness- stamina.

I said it before and I'll say it again--the setback last year was probably what's needed to give Weir the impetus needed to get back on top again. I know no one wants our favorites to suffer any setback, but sometimes you have to take the bitter to taste the sweet.

He looked pretty fashionable with that black and white outfit on IN, though the hairdo shown in the article photo is :eek:
