Yevgeni Plushenko Scapular?
A reader wants to know — was Russian “rock star” skater Yevgeni Plushenko wearing a brown scapular in his performance Thursday and today?
Something scapular-like was certainly visible under his flesh-toned shirt early in the program Thursday.
After his shirt opened during vigorous skating, numerous necklaces spilled out. One could very well have been a brown scapular (photos on his fan page show him wearing numerous religious necklaces, including crucifixes) but it was never fully visible.
Today he wore the same thing, but with a different selection of necklaces that seemed to be all, or mostly religious medals.
Can any Plushenko fans fill us in? Is it a brown scapular? Something similar, but Russian? Something different and Russian?
