Success is focusing 
the full power of all you are 
on what you have a burning desire 
to achieve.

"My favorite kind of photo shoot. 

...and banners have already been hung in the arena for him, as photographed by Elena Vasileva at today's practice:

Johnny and Victor filmed an interview yesterday for Russia's popular Channel One show, "сегодня вечером" ("Tonight") with Andrei Malakhov.

After they finished, the husbands had this to say:

Johnny: "My Russian skills barely made it through my interview with @a_malahov but I'm so happy! What a nice man. @channelone_rus"

Victor:: "Just finished a pretty in-depth interview with @a_malahov for Пусть Говорят on @channelone_rus. Hope it inspires Russia!"

The interview is expected to air within the next week or two.

Photo tweeted by Victor: 
"Filming with Andrei Malahov in Red Square."

Photo tweeted by Victor: 
"Showing @a_malahov some Viacheslav Romanov 
during the interview."

Photo tweeted by Victor: 
"Shopping at ГУМ."

Photo tweeted by Victor: 
"Interview for "Пусть Говорят." All class. 
Hopefully airing next week. 
Russia is going to love it."

Johnny's cool top would give the Norwegian Curling Team a run for its money.

Here's hoping that Johnny enters a zen state, that all his muscles click in on their own, and he can truly enjoy his skate tomorrow.
