    One thing that confused me about Johnny's blog: will Russia no longer grant visas to gay people? Or is it just he doesn't feel safe traveling there anymore?

    I never filled out a visa application but Johnny had said at the time of the grand prix that he put down that he is married to a man on his so I guess he's assuming his visa application may be denied based on his marital status.

    There is always a smart backup option. If he can't get into US Olympic team, boycott the Olympics.:lol:

    I believe it's the latter.

    To be honest even if Johnny is trying to make the Olympic team this year i don't think he has to worry about getting into Russia. :lol:

    So nice to see him skate in a simple costume - doesn't take anything away from that elegant skating. I was never a huge fan but have to admit I miss him on the circuit.

    Random sighting of Johnny in the local dry cleaners/tailor this morning by my hubby, whom I have trained enough to recognize JW but not enough to give him a fan message from me. He said, "But I'm not a fan." Grrr! He used to live in the next town over from me (in N. NJ). Maybe still does?

    Absolutely beautiful. Stunning. As Dick Button would have said - "This is skating".

    It's a perfect piece of music for him. I love the opening pose where he looks like a candle. I would watch Johnny Weir any day than Evan Lysacek.

    LOL, Johnny wasn't at fashion week last week, he was visiting his in-laws in Georgia for the Jewish holiday.
