Lysacek clearly went to the same costume designer (not to mention choreographer! Weir used in the past, demonstrating his deleterious efforts to break up the Tarasova-Weir relationship and try to take away what Mr. Lysacek's conscience-free ambitions to win Olympic gold.Anyways, I for one am outraged to see how Miss Asada is following in the baleful footsteps of Evan "Snooki on ice" Lysacek in daring to use a costume designer that had previously been used by another figure skater!
