Weir must clean up his act in order to medal
Pregame rituals are ubiquitous in sport: LeBron James throws chalk in the air, Tim Tebow inks up the eye black and Johnny Weir cleans. Yes, the eccentric American figure skater dips into the cleaning supplies to calm his nerves before he hits the ice.
"Last night I was nervous, so I Pledged everything," Weir said Wednesday. "Some people eat, some people drink, some people smoke. I Pledge."
Perhaps the thinking goes, a clean house makes for a clean program. Maybe he just needs to keep his mind off the rink so he keeps it on the sink.
Weir's pre-skate Pledge didn't seem to help, as he sits in sixth place following the men's short program, 8.15 points out of third.
