We arrived at the rink around 10:30. I'm still sore from Monday's practice, and Yakuza's endurance training. Steve hadn't been on skates in a number of years. We pay our entry and walk over to the rental counter. Steve takes off for the restroom
I approach the skate booth. One of Astro's employees skates off the floor to come help me. He's quite obviously impressed with himself.
"I need an eight," I said to him.
He hands me a seven and a half.
"The half sizes run large, these should work," he said as he darts out of the booth to go impress some young, 18-year-old girl.
