A Line of Orange Cups

This photo was taken on Sunday afternoon when the weather (finally) warmed up a little. The guys here were lining up to rollerblade around the orange cups and most of them made it without knocking over any of them.

So how good are you at rollerblading or rollerskating?

How funny...you have a weather change over there? Been cold and warmed up? Over here it's been hot and now has finally cooled down. Yay!

I've never rollerbladed/skated...I have been ice-skating twice but that's about all.

I used to be a whiz! Not only did we play roller hockey daily but we also used to play manhunt over a 5-square block radius with no restrictions... streets, sidewalks, backyards... if you could climb a tree it was fair game. Many a time our lives were in danger. We were just too young and fearless (see stupid) to realize it.

I'm able to do that if the orange cups are not to close each other...

Speaking of "whiz", that's what I thought the guy in the middle was doing when I saw the thumbnail on the CDP portal! Cool photo, now that I see it full sized.

Good "action" photo, Ming! Funny perspective!
I used to rollerskate a lot when I was a child... actually I haven't done it for a hundred years...

The guy in the center looks like he is getting ready to pee.

I'm terrible on skates, but my younger son is pretty good. The guy on the right reminds me of my older son, snow on the ground but he's out in short sleeves!

I was there on Sunday afternoon too! I saw the cones as well. What was strange was it started to get very cold around 3 or 4 and people were still running around in shorts and shirts.

Hey, I USED to be good, but don't use this skating skill too much anymore. Great shot!

Never went rollerblading because I have terrible balance. I was a total failure at yoga....and that's without wheels.
