These are the same ones who are 100 years old, drive a 200k car at the track because they realize they have had zero enjoyment in life... and get passed by a bicycle

Just my two cents

There are plenty of palefaces out there wasting their money! I do think this newer generation is a lot thriftier...not a bad thing. It's my generation that ain't saving sh1t!

My hobbies suck twice...track AND ice hockey. Ice hockey ain't cheap. I stopped taking slap shots 3 years ago...those were too expensive. Sticks would last maybe 5-6 games. Now they last an entire 15 game season or more!

Cant you just duct tape your stick up like your car and go? Hockey stick has to be chump change compared to sets of tires all the time.

Build a rink in your yard can't be more than a track car. Aren't you in Wisconsin? Play on the street.

It's pretty much an autoX course with a (kinked) straight.
