First, there was Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie.
Then (in descending order) Donald and Rosie, Jeremy Priven
and John Cusack
, followed by two random guys fighting over a parking space.
And now comes Mark Lund and Johnny Weir
Does anyone, anywhere really care what the former editor of International Figure Skating Magazine
said about the U.S. Men's Figure Skating Champion on an obscure television show so far up the cable dial even infomercials don't bother with it?This
is a fued
(In the interest of full disclosure, I once worked for Mark at IFS, and have also often stated on this blog in the past that I am not a fan of Johnny's; I just don't like little, itty
, bitty skating limbs. Same reason I'm not crazy about Sasha Cohen or Belbin
& Agosto. They remind me of Hobbits on Ice.)
Of course, this fued
coming out (no pun intended) as Mark has a new magazine
to promote and Johnny is headed into a National Championship its uncertain he's favored to win couldn't possibly be contrived on their parts, could it? They couldn't both be fanning flames for the purpose of self-interest, trying to remind the indifferent world at large that their opinions are relevant. Or even that they, you know, are still alive.
No one would be that desperate, would they?Cui bono?
