Set the play level to pouty
***Olympic spoiler below...although I can't imagine why you would be watching this...but spoiler nonetheless***
I will begrudgingly admit that ice skaters are athletes; just not the kind of athletes that I would pay to see...or would want to see for free, for that matter. So when I see is this:
U.S. champion Johnny Weir, who fell out of medal contention with a cautious program filled with errors, stormed out of the rink when his mediocre marks were shown. He finished fifth.
“I missed the bus. They changed the schedule,” Weir said. “It was every 10 minutes. Today it was every half-hour. I was late getting here and never caught up. I never felt comfortable in this building. I didn’t feel my inner peace, I didn’t feel my aura. Inside I was black.”
...I have to figure that we won't be seeing EA Sports Johnny Weir XTreme Skating 2006 for Xbox 360 any time soon.
