But nevertheless I pressed forward to make my comeback into the skating world and I've got the callused thumb to prove it.
My poor skater on the other hand has raspberry patches, a shredded tee and some banged up old-school Santa Cruz board to show for it. He's also got a hefty chunk of money in the bank. But enough about that, on to the game."
