PLAYERS: Johnny Weir
As the Olympics steam into the second week, the Tara Lipinski/Johnny Weir Experience continues to provide gems. Once again, their Instagram accounts have provided plenty of comedy, fashion displays and even a special guest appearance from their play-by-play partner, Terry Gannon. In the video below, you'll see the outfits Lipinski and Weir chose for today's Ice Dance short program.  And in this video, shot on their day off on Saturday, Tara and Johnny chose to belt out Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart."
