New Skates

I payed a visit to Perani's in Livonia, MI while I was in Detroit working at Motorcity Casino this week. I ended up getting last years model of NikeBauers One90. They really fit differently which I hope is going to be something positive for once with skates.

The sales guy said they fit more like the traditional supremes did. That's what I need; something with traditional feel. Bauer 3 & 4000's were the best skates I've ever worn. Going back to something similar to that should be great. Now I just need some roller blades too.

Penguins Fans???

I pull up to Motorcity Casino to check into the hotel and I see a bunch of people wearing Pittsburg Penguins jerseys out and about around the place. It's hard to believe that these people don't realize that the Illitch family owns Motorcity.

Yeah, you guys, you're helping the Red Wings' players get a raise. Do your homework next time you're coming to town for the game and need a place to stay. Sheesh.

Holy ShNikes...

So has everyone seen the price of a set of Bauer One95's. All I can say is holy shit.

I remember the first time I ever payed $200 for a pair of skates. I believe it was 1993 and even then there was a feeling of guilt that was overwhelming. $650 is the craziest shit I have ever heard. Looks like I'm going to have a tough decision of which skate company to overpay for a set of skates this summer. Damn!
