A Memorable Time at Skate America 2013

The launch of our book, The World Was Our Stage at Skate America in the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit was beyond my expectations. The enthusiastic response from the skating community was deeply gratifying. Not only from the likes of Scott Hamilton, Sandra Bezik, and Tanith Belbin, but most of all from the diehard skating fans who kept coming to our booth and reminiscing about the “Golden Age” of the sport and the abundant moments in skating history that we shared—me inside a mobile van and them in the arena seats or at home in front of their TV screens. All in all the weekend was heartwarming and memorable.
