Rollerblades Have Not Killed the Quad Star

I'm so excited to learn that one of my favorite childhood pastimes has not been gobbled up by the new sport of ankle-breaking rollerblading! Yes!, quad roller skating is alive and well on planet earth and there is a whole subculture of rollerskaters who bring a funky feel to it by mixing it with dancing and flashiness that we never got to see in the 80's. I just went to a roller rink last Sunday for the first time in 20 years. It was a breath of not so fresh air just like it used to be with its smell of socks, leather, stale pretzels, and sweaty carpet. Pure bliss, Ya'll. Pure bliss. As I rolled along it all started coming back to me and I never even had a spill. I can't wait to go back. I'm gonna learn to rollerskate again and I'm gonna bring it to the front where it belongs. Eat your heart out, Rollerblades!
