    Good for him. :) I'm also impressed by the math major. I just took statistics and college algebra in college, and even that was :shuffle:. I think his volunteering, teaching, and coaching activities are fantastic.

    I want to see the blue mohawk.

    However I am very impressed to read of where he is at in his life. It is obviously very successful for him personally. Good for him.

    Very impressed with his achievements and volunteering. Not too many elite skaters share his/her talents with underprivileged kids like he did. He's a great role model for young skaters.

    Thanks for the article. Nice to see him accomplishing so much off the ice, in addition to all he accomplished in his skating.

    Tim's a great guy and we always look forward to him coming back to Chicago during school breaks. He is a very good coach who helps out during his visits.

    Great for Tim, and nice to hear how he's doing and what he's been accomplishing since he retired from competitive skating. I remember that he seemed very upset and disappointed at the time he ended his skating career, so it's wonderful to see that he's discovered there's life after skating. Also, good to see that he's gotten to a place where he realizes the signficance of what he accomplished in skating and the importance of giving back. Kudos, to Tim, he's a great role model.

    I hope his back and other old skating injuries are healed. And I am so glad to hear he's graduating and doing well, and doing good for others, too!

    I agree. I also think mohawks are for kids and punks. He should have gone the fauxhawk route.
