I thought GS was not too bad a place to express ones' thoughts about skating, but sadly, I was wrong.
There are still those posters who like to "get their little digs" in one way or another.
I sort of got into a "habit" here of contributing or replying to the posts, but I learned my lesson. It's really not worth it to be insulted or to read of one of my favorite skaters or skating teams being "put down."
I was a figure skater and a figure skating fan for many years before Golden Skate even existed. It's kind of weird when I think about it. What's my connection to the skating world now? Really just many lovely youthful memories spent on the ice and hours of practice. It's kind of like trying to relive the past - actually a little painful at times.
Even Toller, learned to let go of skating and move on. Maybe I should too.
I'll check in from time to time, but will hold off on the comments.
