    Understatement of the past four years. Glad he finally gets the math.

    I'm still a little bit old school; I kind of think triple-double-double [combinations] are silly, but hey, they help rack up the points. That's my problem and I have to get over it fast. Like now."

    I feel like kissing the ground right now. He gets it, he finally gets it!

    I love your skating, Johnny!

    Well, he could do 3-3-2 if he thinks that's less silly :) But yeah, it would be great to see him not leave any points on the table.

    I respect him so much for never quitting and I hope good things happen for him. Forget about trying to be perfect, Johnny! Just pretend you're sick and take it one jump at a time!

    No kidding! It drives me batty every time he doubles the back end of a combination. But, I will say that he's gotten much better about not totally rechoreographing his programs and has started planning/thinking about how to compensate under the COP if he does totally leave out the second jump.

    I hope he can just stay healthy.

    I have to admit that "Weir" and "unflappable" are words I didn't expect to see together in a news headline. . .

    And yes, Johnny, please ditch the Bump-Its/pompadour look. It's positively dreadful.

    Eight pounds in one day?! That is insane.
    Man, I love Johnny's candor. There's always this sense of sarcastic wit to his outlook.
    I just hope his physical condition can keep up with his positive frame-of-mind; wherein
    lies Johnny's weakness- stamina.

    I said it before and I'll say it again--the setback last year was probably what's needed to give Weir the impetus needed to get back on top again. I know no one wants our favorites to suffer any setback, but sometimes you have to take the bitter to taste the sweet.

    He looked pretty fashionable with that black and white outfit on IN, though the hairdo shown in the article photo is :eek:

    I didn't know it was humanly possible to lose 8 lbs in one day. :lol:

    He doesn't say it's in one day. He says he was 8 lbs underweight..... I would bet that some of that was virus and some of that was....... the Starbucks diet?

    Johnny wound up in the hospital and was given an IV most likely for dehydration. From what I remember reading last year, Johnny couldn't even hold down water before he was taken to the hospital.

    Eight pounds is probably an exaggeration. . .

    And: Does the US have three spots for men at the Olympics?

    Well, if you have the shiz and vomit, it's entirely possible. :yikes:

    No, it was a viral infection. Not from the diet.

    EYS! :cheer2:

    Actually, probably not. I saw him right afterwards, and he looked absolutely skeletal.

    I think he always looks pretty "skeletal" It's one of the things that worries me about him.

    From the magazine

    "JW: I was very sick with a stomach virus, but I tried, anyway. I was eight pounds underweight, and I went out and missed a few jumps. It was absolutely the lowest point of my career. I was feeling so low that I quit skating for two months, and I wasn’t sure if I’d come back."


    I don't get the"single day" reference. If he was sick for several days that's easily believable.

    Perhaps you should read the article this thread is about.
