I'm from the US, and I have to say that hardly anyone knows anything about skating. A lot of people I know don't even know Tonya Harding. I'd say that Sasha Cohen is probably very well known, but none of the male skaters.
I asked 4 people in my office to name male figure skaters and got Browning, Boitano, and Hamilton (twice). When I asked for a current one 3 said Weir., the other no idea.All thought Kwan was a gold medalist. One thought she was still skating.
None could name the Canadian ladies skater whose mother died rigbt before the Olympics. Three remembered the story.
Just like in a few months I'll know the names of tons of swimmers, but by December it will probably just be Phelps if I'm called upon to name one.
Lochte. Ryan Lochte.
"I miss footwork that has any kind of a discernible pattern. The goal of a step sequence should not be for a skater to show the same ice coverage as a Zamboni and take about as much time as an ice resurface. " ~ Zemgirl, reflecting on a pre-IJS straight line sequence
Great comment! Very true!Why are there beautiful buildings on the Red SquarE
Those who know Tanya and Michelle are a dying breed.
First of all, lol at anyone that tries to make anything Johnny says literal. It never works that way with Johnny You're just going to end up butthurt trying to puzzle the statement about nobody knowing who Evan is Besides, it's just not a Johnny interview if he doesn't take a swipe at Evan
Thank you for the translation. I don't care if he wins or loses when he comes back, I'm looking forward to it. I watch skating in part to be moved, and entertained, and... well, let's face it, they don't give international gold medals to anyone other than PChids anyway, so I may as well be entertained while watching the battle for silver and bronze
On a related note... has anyone heard when the second season of "Be Good Johnny Weir" is scheduled to make its debut on the Logo channel?
