Lysacek still riding whirlwind of golden fame

Lysacek_250 I caught up with Evan Lysacek when the Olympic figure skating champion blew into Chicago for a couple days to promote the March 12 Stars on Ice appearance at Rosemont's Allstate Arena.

This was your one-size-fits-all promotion, what touring figure skaters have been doing for years. Blow into a city, skate with some kids, do print and TV interviews to sell tickets for the ice show coming soon to a local arena.

He put on hockey skates to join a couple of dozen kids on the synthetic ice of the Skating in the Sky rink on the 94th floor of the John Hancock building. After that and an autograph session, Lysacek went to the building's roof for a photo shoot.

The dizzying heights of fame.

Here is Evan's Top 10 list of things the Olympic gold medal allowed him to experience.
