#JohnnyWeir, #♥”

Thursday, February 13.

Screencaps of one of my fav on-air moments: 
Terry Gannon describes himself as always “underdressed”...

...then mentions that Johnny’s hair 
makes him tall enough to play 
three-point guard in basketball.

Friday, February 14.

We awoke to this intriguing video via Tara: 
“Watch @johnnygweir and I take on 
@savannahguthrie and #JennaBush 
on the @todayshow this morning! @nbcolympics”

And also photos: via @TaraAndJohnny: 
“Tune into the Today Show this morning to see us 
take on tennis #taraandjohnny”

Via @TaraAndJohnny: “Tune into the Today Show 
this morning. We take on tennis!”
Except that the segment didn’t air Friday as we hoped, 
or at least not here or on the East Coast. 
Keeping an eye out...!

After their tennis escapades, Johnny totally outdid himself 
in dressing for the men’s free skate. 
From his Instagram: “Today’s Look: Sequins by 
@_UNCONDITIONAL, Ruffles by Libertine, Jewels by 
@ericksonbeamon, Skinnies by @JBrandJeans, 
hoes @louboutinworld” 
Need more of him in this diamond-sparkly jacket? 
Of course you do. You’re welcome.

Via Johnny: “Happy Valentine’s Day 
from us to you! @taralipinski @taraandjohnny” 
In this video message, Johnny explains his and Tara’s 
fashion choices for the day: 
“I’m Tara’s diamond; she’s my hearts.”

Saturday, February 15.

No skating broadcast today. No Johnny and Tara. The world sighs heavily and slumps at its collective desk.

Fortunately we had these incomprehensible tweets to discuss:

IDEK what they’re going to be on or when, so I’ve set my DVR to “RECORD ALL THE THINGS” and we’ll see what happens. They were apparently on with Meredith Viera late Saturday night, so hopefully video will be coming soon.

Also they Instagrammed some pics with their tweets:

Via @TaraAndJohnny: “Make sure you tune into 
@TODAYshow Monday and root for Team @nbcsports 
in the “Anchor Olympics”! @taralipinski @johnnygweir”

Via Johnny: “My nerves are visible 
as my little munchkin, @taralipinski prepares for her 
competition on @TODAYshow Anchor Olympics. 
@williegeist #eyeofthetigress”

Via Tara: “Tune into the @todayshow Wednesday! 
Sportscasters against the Anchors @williegeist @mlauer 
@savannahguthrie @alroker @nmoralesnbc @lesterholtnbc”

And posted a new music video! 
Via @TaraAndJohnny: “Turn around... 
@taraandjohnny @johnnygweir”

So all I know for sure is that they are back LIVE today, Sunday, February 16, 10 am EST on NBC Sports Network with short dance coverage!! And the world will be a much happier place.
