Favorite Quotes – 2018 – Post #34

“Years ago, I picked up figure skating. How hard could spins and jumps be, I thought? It’s just applied Newtonian physics.

– Michio Kaku

  1. I remember the skating club, the tight skates, and the lessons. Never was any good, but it was great for balance. Tried roller-blades in my 60s. just going round and round the rink. 🙂 Good times.

    Remember the skating shows? OMGoodness, some of those kids could really skate!

    If I’m going to watch a sport, I think ice hockey is good fast fun. Not on TV though, the puck is too small to follow.

    My son played a bit, but then they closed our local ice rink, so he tried roller-hockey. Now they’ve closed the roller rink. 😦

  2. I used to love skating. This is a testament to why we should try new things. 🙂

    • Or rediscover old favorites, D. Wallace. 🙂 Cheers, Ashley
