Man Shares Funny Home Movie Of His First Time On Skates

He had high hopes of being graceful on skates, but it didn’t turn out that way. John Enright recently shared a home movie of himself at age 12, trying to conquer the ice.

His family brought him to an ice rink to try skating, but trying to stay upright proved the challenge. What ensued is a hilarious and good-humored look at what is a “rite of passage” for many kids. Not only did he fail to skate, he fails to stand up without the aid of the rink’s barrier.

His family can’t help but laugh. But like a true champion, John pulled himself up again to have another go at it – and with a smile on his face the whole time!
