My sister, who was a few years older than me, received a skateboard for Xmas. Boldly, on the first day of Spring, she took it out to do what I guess were some crazy skateboard moves and she hurt herself real badly. That was the end of skateboarding in our house (although I did find her skateboard years later and nearly broke my skull with it). So while other kids would seem Tony Hawk, skating to “Skateboard Johnny”, which for some reason never charted, and then ran to the street, boards in hand, I picked up a joystick and played lots and lots of Atari.
