    I liked the part where he compared skating "pairs" with JoJo as a crutch like his hockey stick :lol:

    I never took a lesson with JoJo but I recall skating at the old Sky Rink and being on the ice at the same time when JoJo was doing her stunning spread eagle - even on a crowded session everyone on the ice would stop - parting like the Red Sea - making sure she had enough room and looking on in amazement.

    She is one of the nicest people I have ever known - always greeting you with a genuine smile - whether she is meeting you for the first time, a casual acquaintance or an old friend.
