    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.

    According to his twitter he is at the rink everyday practicing but no official confirmation yet.

    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.
