The power of Kilroy inspired my transition from hockey to figure skating. I remember like it was yesterday.... I'm at center ice, hunched over and motionless. As "Mr. Roboto" starts, I slowly arch up and come to life! Pumping up... "You're wondering who I am, secret, secret.." I skate backwards, doing the robot... smooth... index finger to lips on the "secret, secret" part! I even do the "dead" move: My robotic arm slowly "dies" until it stops, and my eyes are blank!.... Then "I am a modern *man*"... and I come back to life. I skate forward, with fist pumps and shoulder shakes!! (Like Pat Benatar in guitar solos and "Love is a Battlefield"... don't tell her I lifted it!).
Folks, I nailed it! But it was all too avant guard - when people wanted me back at left guard:-). A medal eluded me that day. I later learned that they take points off when you do the routine with your hockey stick. Oh well, I kept my artistic integrity!** And for that, I thank you very much "Mr. Roboto!" Think Big! Go for it!
** I returned to hockey the next day, when the coach and co-captain asked me to. (But the dream lives on... sort of... whatever.)
