Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski surprised, grateful for rave reviews, look forward to more
Bob Says: Now that the Olympics Games are over I felt I wanted to say some things about Skating NBC/Sochi Commentator’s Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir!
I like Skating and saw lots of it, when I first saw Tara and Johnny working together I did say to myself that Johnny was making a visual statement. Let it be known I am a butch gay (more manly like) guy so Johnny is on the other side of the line then I am! Yes I am okay with Johnny and his statements both as a gay man who happens to be flamboyant in his style and a past Olympian Medalist well qualified to speak about his sport! It also appeared that Tara was comfortable working with Johnny and as you saw more and more of the pair working together Tara started more and more to dress off Johnny again I am okay with this! I (Bob) do not dress with such bling or color but when you talk of a sport that has many a gay athlete in it as skating (Also seen by our women’s Ice Hockey teams) when we (LGBTQQA) need statements saying as a people we do not like the Anti-LGBTQQ statements and beliefs coming out of Russia Politico.
I approve of Johnnie’s idealistic statements even if not by spoken word! The one thing that many reading this article may not be aware that for the most part the actions and statements of our commentators were for mostly American audience’s only as other countries had their own networks and staff! So may likely do not know of such messages!
