Default Another good news story

The speed skating oval has been a big deal around here this winter...
with our usual roller coaster weather, it's been hard to keep good ice till
now.
With this oval, six large chillers are used so the ice stays good even in
temps 10 F above freezing.
Thousands were able to use this ice up till the 2011 Canada Winter Games
started... and the big hope is that the 'temporary' oval stays around for
years to come.
I just may have to dust off my old Lange skates and join the fun. I'm sure
it would be more productive than suffering some of the spoofers and cowardly
rejects in here.

Speed skating is amazing to watch, especially from my perspective...of a
guy who could ice skate a little and finally got to the level of
"expertise" where I didn't fall on my butt every time I got up on the
skates. Watching me play in pickup hockey games must have provided the
other players with a lot of giggles.

Before you strap on those old skates make sure you take a walk over to the
Forum and get the blades sharpened. Then post a vid of you skating. That
should be fun.

That's funny coming from a guy who has disdain for car racing or any
other sport....
