I love Rocky. I could watch Rocky every day of the week. In fact, I liken my travails in skating as a cross between Rocky and Flashdance. And did you notice in those movies, they don't really "win?" There's no big "winning" scene where they stand over their antagonists triumphantly, with the music playing and confetti everywhere. Rocky doesn't win, he just stays in the game.
Sometimes, that's all you can hope for. Staying in the game.
Stay in the game, skaters! Keep moving forward!
