Olympic Spirit, Part Two.

I write this as Evan Lysacek is being awarded the Olympic gold medal for men's figure skating. I love men's figure skating. And I love the moment just after athletes are awarded medals and the flags come down from the ceiling and everyone looks up and the athletes get emotional and the national anthem start to play. (Especially if it also happens to be my national anthem.)

...And I love Evan Lysacek's smile.

And if you aren't one of the many, many people I have forced to watch Johnny Weir skate to Poker Face and Jeremy Abbott's Nationals version of the same short program he flubbed on Tuesday night, I highly recommend you do that.
