Sometimes the life of world-class figure skaters is as rigid and unyielding as the surfaces they glide atop. Arenas and airports. Hotels and handshakes. Exhibition tours and grueling competitions. And always the pursuit of perfection in a practice schedule as dizzying as a sitz-spin. That's why this off-season, which will end this weekend with Skate America 2007 in Reading, was so much fun for Evan Lysacek. "The Champions on Ice Tour ended early this fall, so we had a little more time for other things," Lysacek said earlier this week.

"After much consideration following the conclusion of our event in Vancouver, Ben and I have decided to end our season with these Olympic Games," Belbin said.

At just 17, Kimmie Meissner is one step and seven triple jumps away from fulfilling a dream. The Maryland resident, who trains at the University of Delaware, can add an American championship to her world title with a solid free skate this afternoon in the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. On the men's side, leader Evan Lysacek is just as close to his initial national championship, but in three-time champion Johnny Weir, lurking just 0.85 points behind, he faces a much larger hurdle.

Lessons for young Tom as Dad lay dying Even Tom Cruise has emotional scars. Yes, even the Impossible Missionary himself. The star tells Esquire he was deeply affected when his pops, Thomas Cruise Mapother III, abandoned him after his parents' divorce. "He didn't try to help the family financially or spiritually, and I lived with the effects of the chaos," says Tom. A decade later, when Tom was fresh off the success of '83's Risky Business, he found out his dad was dying and visited him in the hospital.

Just as he did a year ago, Evan Lysacek began the 2007 figure-skating season finishing second to a Japanese rival at Skate America. Lysacek, the 22-year-old U.S. champion, ended up behind Japan's Daisuke Takahashi after last night's free-skate finale to the men's event at the Sovereign Center. Last year, Lysacek, one behind Takahashi at fourth in the world rankings, finished behind Nobunari Oda in the season-opening event. As is his habit, Lysacek was stronger in the free skate than in the short program.

ROGER FEDERER ignored recent death threats from a Chinese blogger and won his opening match at the Shanghai Masters on Wednesday, beating qualifier Lu Yen-Hsun , 6-3, 7-5, in the second round. Federer said he was aware that the blogger recently had issued an apology. The 17-time Grand Slam champion has had heavy security surrounding him at all times since arriving in Shanghai. "I felt fine," Federer said. "There was maybe one quick thought. I saw one of the bodyguards outside of the court.

VANCOUVER - He could hardly skate better. He could not skate harder. Evan Lysacek knew it. As he finished his graceful routine, his Ichabod limbs unfolding from his combination spin, having skated the routine of his life, having skated within himself, he began to pump his right fist into the air. As the music died and the crowd at the Pacific Coliseum rose, he threw both fists at the sky once, twice . . . five times. He didn't try a quadruple jump in his free-skate program.

As Johnny Weir walked from the waiting area to the Spokane Arena ice late Saturday night, the explosion of noise that concluded Evan Lysacek's free skate told him he'd need a miracle to capture a fourth consecutive national title. For Weir, even though his long program depicted the life of Jesus Christ, there would be no divine intervention. The Coatesville native's long reign was ended by Lysacek, who turned in what arguably was the greatest performance ever by a male American figure skater in the finale of the 2007 U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

Want to know a secret about Dancing With the Stars ? "The celebrities that maybe aren't the best dancers kind of in a way are more fun to work with," says Anna Trebunskaya, a professional ballroom dancer who has appeared on eight seasons of the show, "because you really have no expectation. And then, when they bring something to the table, you're really like, 'Oh my gosh, I can't believe you just pulled that through.' " Trebunskaya, who had won many ballroom championships before auditioning for the show before it ever aired, twice came in second, with retired wide receiver Jerry Rice in Season 2, and figure skater Evan Lysacek in Season 10. (Her Season 1 partner backed out.)

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach , onetime spiritual adviser to Michael Jackson , says Lindsay Lohan 's alleged drug use is a cry for help by a girl who feels abandoned by her dad. (That'd be Michael Lohan , who seems as hungry for media attention as his daughter.) "So many people conflate love and attention. If you don't get enough love . . . you become an attention-seeker," says America's rabbi and host of TLC's Shalom in the Home . "MJ and Lindsay suffer from the same malady.

VANCOUVER - Regardless of how things go at the rink, ice dancer Tanith Belbin will have some interesting 2010 Winter Olympic stories to tell her grandchildren. She can tell them how she and partner Ben Agosto trudged through waist-high Delaware County snow to get in their final practices. Or how they had to reschedule their Thursday flight out of Philadelphia a dozen times. Or how their new costumes got stranded in Brooklyn and traveled to 30th Street Station on Amtrak. Or, maybe most interestingly, she can tell them how she shared an Olympic Village room with Johnny Weir.
