At least hockey sticks still go on sale sometimes...

Never heard of that idea -- God knows we've been learning to skate on ice in Canada without in-line skates forever. My first skates (at about age 2 or 3 near the Boston area where my brother was born) were little double-bladed strap-ons that went over a pair of boots. My own children learned on regular skates at an indoor rink -- I recommend a skating frame (a chair will do in a pinch).

A picture of a kid using a skating frame: http://myiceskates.com/learn-to-ice-skate/

If you live in the south, I think in-line skating would be a good proxy for ice skating, or at least a way to practice more often if indoor ice-time is scarce. Just remember that stopping in the two different kinds of skating is worlds apart!

Yeah, the chair. Who hasn't did their time on the local pond or backyard icerink pushing that around? Ah, memories.

I have to admit that reading through this and a couple other threads, Hey Man did a pretty good f'n job trolling the shit out of everyone.

Kudos to the puppetmaster

I'm sure Hey Man is still being a cool boss somewhere, sitting on a big Pilates ball instead of a chair, cruising pron and drinking beer with his employees.
