I did feel a little bit of guilt for what happened, but I didn't ask for that. I am not a criminal, even though when I stepped out of this room yesterday, I felt like one.

I always question a little bit that event, ice dancing. Because I've been in skating a long time and I'm still not sure what I'm watching sometimes. I don't know if I'm watching some kind of a dress-up event, where whoever has the best dress is going to win, maybe, or who has the best hair extensions.

I've been in this for 25 years, and I've never been so confused in my life. These skaters are great skaters. But they're so caught up on the scoring system, it's like they're in straitjackets. They can't be themselves. The art and beauty are gone. They don't have the freedom to express themselves.
