Gray skies and brisk breezes

Take a look outside in Chicago and you will see gray skies and brisk breezes. The winter weather is making a slow exit from the city as usual.

We are weeks into the month of May and old man winter still has a light grip on the city. I had to turn the heat on inside of my home at night and inside of my car on my way to work. This is rich for the summer, cold air in May.

AC Turned Off in May

This is crazy. We have reached the end of May and the weather is still chilly outside. I’m running the heat in my car and in my home to keep warm in the summer month of May. This is the wildest thing ever. The winter weather still has a strong grip on the Chicago climate. Over the past week, there has been a lot of rain and some severe thunderstorms. Trees were stripped of leaves and branches yesterday. Broken tree limbs litter many of the streets and sidewalks. Piles of wet leaves gather on the corners of the roadways.

Deejay is smart, creative and he has a strong memory. He knows all 42 of the core routines. Feel welcome to learn our stuff too, that’s why we post them, they are for everyone to enjoy. If you don’t have any routines of your own yet, or you want to run some new ones, run ours. We are open with our routines and we like to share.

Two New Gods

Pharaoh is recruiting again, there are two new gods. There are now 3 new JBSKATERS on the JBGODS Skate Team. I have not announced two of them yet. Who may they be?? Stay connected to find out.

Too New Gods

The idea of recruiting very new skaters is one that I favor. I’ve shared this thought with my team. I’m not interested in having the best skaters on the team. Those guys are great, however being great alone does not get my attention. A team oriented mentality is the virtue that I seek. The JBGODS Skate Team will be filled with team players and not a bunch of individuals. I assumed that this would be an easy undertaking, but it isn’t. That’s why this task has drifted from a goal to a dream. Expectations lie on the path of disappointment, so they are greatly to be expected.

The Gods Got Trash

I heard someone say this about our team. It seems that people don’t believe that their criticisms will reach me. They do, they always do. I’ll never address those insults, but I’ll surely remember them. This insult is one that I am thankful for, as a result I’ll prove you wrong.

Street fights and skating rink scandale

As a child, I thought that after a certain age that people did not get into heated fights. Atleast, not in public with strangers. I’m not sure why I thought this. There was no clearly defined logic in my mind accept that adults didn’t behave that way. But, to my dismay, we do.

Gotta Go, No Violence for me

The moment a skirmish breaks out, I’m gone. Even if it clears up and the function goes back to normal, no thanks. I don’t like to be in an environment where people can not control their emotions. Plus, things can escalate even in silence. First, there are words, in most cases. Then that moves to hands and feet. You know what comes after that, I’m not tryna be around for it either.
