Yeowwww. Chris has still got it.Everyone knows this classic lump-in-your-throat line from the Sandlot: "At some point in your childhood, you and your friends went outside to play together for the last time and nobody knew it." In an unexpected turn of events, I reversed course on that quote this weekend and literally went outside to play again with one of my old childhood skate buddies.
Chris and I recently got back in touch after losing contact for a few decades, so I invited him out to the park for a few rips around the pump track and mini ramp. One of my fond memories from back then was learning to drop into ramps together, so it was also fun seeing him work up the courage to drop in again for the first time in decades. Just had to share that... what a blast.
