    Nancy LOL! Sheila, hmmm I don't think it's probably legal... Maybe in Minnesota where there are MANY crazy skating coaches!! Thanks for the chuckle!

    Dan R Sheila, I kinda thought you were always on the daring side of things and this pretty much confirms that. Your escapades are always good for a chuckle. Glad to see the Custom Riedell skates but I'm not paying the ticket when you get pinched.

    Selena Fell off my chair laughing. The straight face she keeps is priceless. "Be sure to check your phone and have a cup of coffee at the same time!"

    Trevor I just knew the "height challenged" comment was going to come up, partly because I was thinking exactly what Chris mentioned while we were filming. Sooo fun!!

    JJ Matthews This was wonderful! I have done this many times in Anchorage, AK! Sometimes I hit 4 rinks in a day, and this is a great way to pack in those extra lessons :) great video I am still smiling

    Sara I am so glad that I am not the only one who has driven in my skates! I am a little better in my figure skates than my hockey but, yep I've driven the zamboni, cars, and a stick shift in my jeep with my skates on... Actually I'm so short It really helps me when I have to reach the clutch! Go Shelia! ?

    Judy A girl after my own heart! What a hoot!! Of course, I can't get away with that funny stunt. My husband is a "Driver Safety " teacher and here in Florida we don't have a snow challenge. We can get coffee at our rink though. Right on Sheila....

    Scott One of your many talents. Is the air thinner when you wear your skates?

  14. March 29, 2013 at 2:31 pm

    Debbie Allen Actually I have done that between rinks when I lived in Canada. It's like having platform shoes on.
