This and That
Johnny Weir was interviewed at the show honoring Alexei Mishin. Note how much he has going on and indicates that competing next year may not happen...which he will confirm later on when it doesn't. He has interesting things to say about the US Men's team for the World Championships. Though he is speaking English, Johnny makes sure to use his Russian affectation when speaking as though he was a student in ESL.
Dube and Davison officially ended their partnership today. Both say they are open to skating pairs if the right person comes along. It is amazing that they are splitting up now when they've had so many moments where one might've expected it. They were involved in quite the love triangle, which was apparently tense at times. He also sliced her face open at the 2007 Four Continents Championships when they got too close together on their side-by-side spins. Jessica is going to continue skating singles in an attempt to carry on the glorious tradition of skaters like Karen Preston, Jennifer Robinson and Charlene Wong.
From the press conference quotes, it sounds like Jessica broke Bryce's heart yet again (this time on a professional level.)
