Absurd Vintage Skating Photos Even Non-Sports Fans Will Love
So you think you can figure skate? Are you photogenic? Can you tolerate the cold? Let these vintage figure skating photos be your guide.
Skating can be hard.
Like when you need to pull a giant sign AND smile at the same time.
Or wear heavy hair bows.
Or an annoying guy who isn’t even wearing skates tries to get in on your chorus line.
Sometimes you even fall.
And need to be carted home in a jalopy.
It can be lonely when you have to spread eagle alone.
But a good skating friend will wear a pointy hat with you.
Or hang out in a rink café even if a guy jumps over your table.
