I went skating in Central Park yesterday for the first time, then skated down to 14th St (via my sacred BravoBlades). I got to hang with some skateboarders in the Park despite that supposed rivalry between bladers, boarders, and BMXers.
On the way home, somewhere around 20th St in Manhattan, I found some rough pavement I wasn't prepared for, and fucked myself up pretty good. Got both knees, one worse than the other, and I hurt all over. I was picking asphalt out of my palms on the subway ride home. The best part was that I got up after the fall and still skated six more blocks to the train. RAHR! Maybe I'll add as pic of my knee to my pics page.
