Now we've all seen Will Ferrell and Jon Heder's hilarious comedy, "Blades of Glory", about men's professional figure skating. Well, HBO's Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel does a story on the eccentric, 3-time Men's Figure Skating Champion, Johnny Weir. It's funny to see how similar Johnny is to Jon Heder's character in the movie, but you also get to see the difficult challenges that are part of the participation in the sport. You really need to see the full HBO story. It's, ummm.... Interesting.
Fully committed to his skating and dead set on proving the critics wrong, Johnny Weir is ready to take the Olympics by storm.
