It's National Roller Skating Month

And I know I'm excited. Really.

Apparently October is National Roller Skating Month and the spokesman for the campaign to get more kids to roller skate is none other than former UO Duck and benchwarmer NBA 2004 Slam Dunk champion Fred Jones.

The press release I linked to doesn't include some fun quotes from a press release Barney sent me.

"Roller skating has always been a way to socialize, listen to music and play a few video games with your friends," said Dan Brown, president of the Roller Skating Association International.
I don't know, but I don't think skating and playing video games at the same time is all that brilliant of an idea. I'm assuming they mean playing at the arcade at roller rinks, but I'm just making sure.
Roller skating indoors provides a safe, fun way to stay in shape and makes for a stronger and better body. "It's also a great place to hang out with your friends, hear some good music and maybe even meet your first girlfriend," said Jones with a smile.
Maybe it's because I grew up here in Bend where the roller rink has pretty much sucked for years (until recent years when they got bought out and remodeling), but I can't say ever wanted to date any of the women I saw at the roller rink.
