good luck especially if youre active in competition.

I appreciate the support man! I respect the skaterboarders, bmx bikers, and all the other extreme sport athletes and only wish people like "viva la bam" didn't give them such a bad image. I was competitive for several years. Qualified for nationals 4 times and competed nationally 3 times. Twice I competed in singles and once in pairs. Since college started I took a break my first semester. But with the start of the new semester I began to get on the ice again after 4 months off! I am still working on getting my jumps back and plan to be competitive this and next year. I want to compete nationally one more time before I get too old to compete. I will keep all you guys updated as to how I'm doing and if there are any competitions in Pittsburgh! Thanks for the support. Peace.

BuFu
