Without thinking I reacted by powering up my back leg into a powerful Telemark type scrunch-squat, absorbing the compression, lunging off that single leg and sticking the landing on the walkway below. "That would have killed a lesser man" I thought honestly to myself as I went on happily with the rest of my day.

When we finished we talked about where they were from and who they played hockey for as we passed around a bottle of Jameson and they smoked ridiculously fat, frat boy cigars. They asked us how long we had been skating in the neighborhood and we looked at each other and said with disbelief, '40 years'.
The young bucks shook our hands on the way out and the last one said with all sincerity, 'It was an honor skating with you.' Which is nice.
