With the recent news that Johnny Weir is not only writing a book but also recording an album, in addition to Evan Lysacek's 'Dancing With the Stars', I was curious if you felt skaters (not just those two) should just stick to competing until they retire?

Definitely not. If you get the opportunities to do something, cash in on them now. Figure skating isn't a huge sport by any means, especially now in the United States (compared to what it used to be 10, 15 years ago). There are some skaters that just keep competing until they are overtaken and forced out of the sport due to the younger generation, and by that time they have no popularity anymore and they haven't gone to school or anything else in terms of planning for after their careers are over.

Ask me a question about figure skating!
