The talented American Johnny Weir .. is a brat, and I'd like to smack 'im
I agree, but he skates so beautifully! Probably the most elegant and talented male skater the US has had for a very long time. If he could just land that quad we keep hearing about from him, he'd have it all.
I agree about Evgeny Plushenko, too, but I'm not really fond of his choreography and style. I loved Alexei Yagudin, though, so that may be part of it.
The only thing I've managed to watch all the way through was the Men's Halfpipe (snowboarding) and only because Shaun White reminds me of my youngest son, Taylor, who is very much into skateboarding & recently snowboarding. My daughter also snowboards (only because her boyfriend drags her to the mountains ) She claims she spends more time falling off the skylift and leaving face imprints in the snow than actually snowboarding
Mind our French ice skater, girls: Brian Joubert will try to get silver medal!
Fingers crossed he manage to reach the podium!!!!
PS: I was proud of our French men in the moguls, but they could not reach the podium: two many great concurents! Americans are really great at it!
I would like to "spank" Johnny Wier" to !! ops you said smack
LOL I am watching every second I can get to but I am pet sitting AND donna has come over to work on bears and outfits for bears so I am missing bits and moments so keep looking!!! I love all out skaters esp johnny as I remember that type of attitude very well ! It keeps many folks away and gives you a feeling of being protected and pushes people away not giving them a chance to be VERY mean to you because your different, as you get a bit older in the gay world you see that you don't need to do that just "live and let live" or ****-UM !!
If only Emmanuel Sandhu could keep it together we would have the best male skater in the world. It seems he is always playing head games with himself. Plushenko's skating is technically brilliant but he has no audience appeal. I must admit my all time favourite was and still is Alexei Yaudin
I'm same as Julia a full time office person.
Olympic game start around 11pm(LIVE) in here....
I usually go to bed on 10:30pm but now
I'm up until 12:00am but 1hour of TV is
not enough !! boo hoo
I saw Russian skater Mr. E. Plushenko and his
short program was bravo bravo !! :clap:
My mom was so exited to see the short program of
"Johnny Weir"(American skater) and said
he is CUTE CUTE CUTE CUTE..... but
she didn't say anything that Johnny was holding
bunny or bear after the program.....
Daisuke Takahashi is our only 1 men skater and I hope he does his best at out there and just have a fun! :pray:
You are right guys, you Johny Weir is just an amazing ice skater. I have just seen him on TV. He was just perfect. I cannot say I find him handsome, though, a bit too feminine to me. But the most important is that he is a great ice skater!!!
I fear that our French athlete will have difficulties to be on the podium against him...
Not fair! Have you seen that? johny Weir has made a perfect program, almost! he made a wonderful choregraphy, very light way of skating. Looked like he was dancing, flying... But judges gave him horrible marks! I really don't understand! and out of that, one who fell twice got much more higher marks. Where is the logic???
Humm, unfortunatelly, our French Brian Joubert has not been lucky tonight... I guess too much pression from reporters etc... C'est la vie...
