If it wasn't for Johnny there would be no swans, he is clearly the inspiration for all swans worldwide. Swan Pride.

Yes, of course, Johnny was the TRUE inspiration for making a documentary about the 1961 USFS team tragedy and gave the movie it's name. And of course, he won't be at RISE because USFS is discriminating against him yet again, and Evan was chosen because he is the OGM and the "chosen one."
Of course the fact that RISE is about the legacy left by the 1961 team and those who followed, and that Evan was coached by Frank Carroll, who was coached by the great Maribel Vinson who perished in the crash with her two daughters has nothing to do with him getting a major focus in RISE...nope, not at all, just more unfair USFS favoring Evan and shunning Johnny...

Maybe too much glogg???
“I’ve always loved [Elise] and I’m Norwegian and she’s Norwegian … that was a huge part of it. I like the idea of keeping people of the same nationality together and working on a team to push each other. It was completely free and carefree,” said Weir over a mug of mulled cider after the show.
Like he ever was a team player.
Weir is a Norwegian name? I never knew that. Learn something new every day.
Weir is a Norwegian surname, but Johnny has mentioned before that he has Norwegian ancestry.
http://www.figureskatersonline.com/j...nteract05.htmlQ: Hi there, I was just wondering if you could choose to live in any other country what would it be and why? Thanks so much.
A: I would live in either Russia or South Korea. I have never felt more at home in a foreign land than I do when I am in South Korea and Russia. Specifically I'd like to live in Moscow and Seoul. Later in life I can see myself living in Norway because it where my ancestors are from.
Sweden or Norway? Norway because my roots are Norwegian
Wasn't Johnny inspired by Michelle Kwan...who was coached by Frank Carroll...who was coached by Maribel Vinson-Owen (famous Cosmic Connection)?
And isn't Johnny a 'Showman'...just like (in the most positive way) "Bowman the Showman"...who was coached by Frank Carroll?
Is everybody taking part in the RISE premiere related to Frank Carroll?
Or is the main link that each participating skater benefitted from the Memorial Fund, in which case Johnny certainly has a link.
Doesn't matter now, as he's doing a fashion show the same night. One can't help but think, though, that the legions of Johnny Fans -- especially those with pockets deep enough to buy Faberge Eggs -- could have made donations to the Memorial Fund.
Does Johnny's stylest hate him or what?
