Just a few days before Johnny picks up his trophy! Be there or be square!!!

Apparently, Johnny is not in Greensboro...at least not yet. During last night's Sr Men's SPs, he Tweeted that he was enjoying watching the coverage from home, in his undies (ha!), & wished all competitors well.

So...what's going on? Maybe Johnny will be flown to Greensboro in "photo-finish style" to pick-up his Reader's Choice Trophy tomorrow? Did the big tour bus get a flat tire?

Johnny just sent this tweet:


Landed in Greensboro. Going with @EricAltSalons to meet @tmodlin for some southern cooking.

So when, exactly, are they gonna do this award anyway? Even if it is only a one-minute, low key thing in the K&C? If it will be while IN is broadcasting, I wanna make sure to be watching.

From icenetwork.com twitter (https://twitter.com/#!/icenetwork/status/31035396926218241):

If you're not in Greensboro, @icenetwork is the only place to see @JohnnyGWeir accept the Reader's Choice Award live at 3:30 pm on Sunday.

Thanks. So it will happen right after the first 2 flights of the Men's finals, before the break leading up to the 4pm NBC live telecast of the last 2 groups.

LOL, I love your scenario, essence of soy! It would add some drama and excitement to the as usual, very staid proceedings. Will be lovely to see Johnny, what he's wearing, and whether they will allow him some time to actually say anything.

Really laughable, but unsurprising, how golden boy Ev gets his own presser all by himself, posted up on ice network -- while the senior mens' post sp presser has been missing in action. Guess it's still all about Ev*, even when he's not in the competition. Well, perhaps the fifth option you left out Frau Muller is: Johnny gets the MK award sandwiched in between the early and later round mens event with as little fanfare as possible, while Ev gets his own presser, and is named USOC Athlete of the Year, and is invited to skate in the Exhibition Gala, even though he was not part of the competition.

Gosh, I don't think there is anything Ev has skated to that I'm itching to see again. He's actually IMO probably a better dancer than a skater (funnily enough). Oh but, sorry, yes he's our Olympic Champion and truly deserves our respect and our cheers and our love. Ev's okay really (I'm just teasing ;) )... especially since he won it all and relaxed a little and feels like he came out of Johnny Weir's shadow. I'd just rather see Johnny than Evan skate in the Exhibition. Or, better yet, allow this event to belong to the skaters who competed and placed in the top spots.


*All About Ev -- catchy title for a book

Lambiel was invited to perform in 2011 Europeans gala, so why not Lysacek (the reigning Olympic champion) in US Nationals...?

So how was the presentation?

Also - How come NBC kept using the zoom lens to show us a fuzzy image of Evan sitting in his bulletproof-glass skybox, yet never mentioned or bothered to seek-out Johnny, who supposedly was in the audience during yesterday's Men's LPs? I'm sure that NBC would not have needed a zoom lens to find Johnny, LOL!

NBC also had a pre-recorded backstage interview with Evan, by Andrea Joyce. But Andrea couldn't find Johnny?

:rofl: What -- since the presentation went off without a hitch, you have to find something new to be upset about?

So there was a presentation? I was asking if anyone saw it & a report. Read the top of my post, you Do-Do Bird.
