Oh, Johnny. Dear, dear Johnny Weir. You just skated the routine of your life at the Olympics. It was fabulous, as always. Flawless, too. And even though the judges screwed you, we won't forget how great you were. Video, inside.

Edit: Circumstances beyond my control forced me to edit down the video of Weir's performance to the last minute or so, which is below; however, you can see the full routine on NBC's web site by clicking here.

Weir named his routine "Fallen Angel," an implied reflection of the aftermath of his run at 2006 Winter Games in Torino. He skated it beautifully. It was dramatic, it was acrobatic, it was genuine, it was emotional, and—according to the judges—it was good enough for sixth place. Boo. Hiss.


Whatever, I'm getting cheese fries.

(Evan Lysacek won the gold medal, by the way.)
