Looks like the Sharts are gonna miss the playoffs this year and I just retired from about a decade of heavy drinking, so I started up again.  I was advised to comeback slowly to minimize the risk of injury.   I'm thinking about riding an 8.2 to 8.5 for low level street skating after years of sticking with an 8.

I also got a few questions about wheels and surfaces if anyone can answer them. 

Thank You.

I hear that train sets are making a huge come back these days.


And look they are great fun for old guys. Just think of how much fun you could be having with one of these train sets in the privacy of your own home and doesn't even involve the risk of bodily injury's.

Haha. That train set doesn't look very private.

I think I've seen that old guy at the skatepark though.

Its funny that you brought that up because I was just talking to one of my peers during Bingo at the senior center.
I asked him about the hype in Train Sets these days and how all of the 30+ plus guys are trying to get in on it.

All 40 years of him looked me dead in the eye and said "Son....you need to start hittin the streets again...don't let those little pissant teenagers deter you.  They are just jealous because they are ripping off the style of the skaters that came before them....screw those little fucktards and the bloody stinkboxes that shat them out....those little programmed consumers will eat anything the mainstream feeds to them, including skin tight pants and really garish snapback baseball caps. that make them look like castaways from a Kid N Play video...those kids will try to act hard...like they invented skateboarding themselves...but you and I both know....how conformist they are and how much individuality they lack...they are just living off the merits of people like yourself who actually really skated street before skatestoppers, nationwide parks and Zumiez defined what is now clearly a mainstream sport attracting more jocks than ever.  If any of those little pricks give you attitude tell them to suck a greasy fart out of your asshole and go back to their facebook accounts and Justin Bieber calenders.  Most of today's youngsters lack the stones to actually deal with you in person.  They would rather hide behind the curtain of Forums where they can act tough and pretend they actually know what they are doing.  Be sure to remind them that they have no concept of subculture.  They are no better than the football players who made fun of you in high school".

I thought he was being a little harsh....I told this frail senior citizen that Thrasher would be sending me my AARS  (American Association of Retired Skaters) in the mail and that I could get a senior discount on rag subscriptions.  I said "leave the kids alone...they are just working with what they have...it is not their fault that nothing in society is original anymore and they are relegated to standing on the shoulders of giants.  Some of those nasty little cunts remind me of myself when I was as young and not quite as stupid as they seem to be now...I think we should cut em some slack"

Oh well....I am sure the old guy meant well!
