Our Passionate Love Affair with Corona Heights

We love Corona Heights, and clearly Corona Heights loves us back. This morning was textbook NPSF. We couldn’t have drawn it up any better. And yes, if you didn’t already know, Paddy and Clayton gather at Laura’s place in a small huddle the night before every NP workout as Laura draws out step by step in little X’s and O’s on a whiteboard exactly how tomorrow’s workout will go. She says to us she says:

“Paddy and Clayton, this tribe is the heart of this institution. You win, it beats, you lose, it breaks. You’re not boxing out Paddy, you’re my Windex man I want you shining glass! We won a game yesterday. We win one today, that’s two in a row. We win one tomorrow, that’s a winning streak. It has happened before. Remember kids, there’s heroes and there’s legends. Heroes get remembered but legends never die, follow your heart kids, and you’ll never go wrong. Let me tell you what I see. I see pride! I see power! I see a bad-ass mother who don’t take no crap off of nobody! I believe in the soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman’s back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days. Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. Not Clayton, not Paddy, not even me is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! We’re not goons, we’re not bullies, no matter what people say or do, we have to be ourselves. We’re Team USA, gathered from all across America, and we’re going to stick together, you know why? Because we are ducks, and ducks fly together! Also, we skate for fun. We’re soul skaters.”

Paddy seems to understand, but I’ve never been able to follow a single one of her motivational speeches… Anyways, here are so photos from this morning:



high five




Have a great weekend!
