Out of control kids on skate frames.



Or out of control adults on skate frames for that matter.

Agnes - Just bats in the belfry. I've named them, and that helps.

Skategeek - It seems like pigeons play a kind of "vertical hockey". When I was travelling in Italy, I swear that I had a target on me. Twice is one week is beyond statistical expectations.

Let's call that "Mussolini's Revenge".

Our freestyle time has been cut significantly over the years to accomodate hockey. The last thing I want to see at our rink is this...

This mom type , typically standing in the door to the ice, therefore blocking your entry/exit screaming about "get that leg HIGHER!!!"

We had one of those about 10 years ago.  :(

Blissfully, we've been without one since.
