Opinion: I Think I Can Make It!

Oh, dear. Well, Billy, you’re in a bit of a precarious situation here. Damn, this jump looked way narrower from down there. Ah, shit! Are those sharp rocks? There weren’t any sharp rocks down there a second ago!

Okay now, focus up. You got this. Remember, all the guys are watching; Joey, Tommy, Gooey, that weird kid with the eyepatch. They all laughed when you said you could make this jump. “You’ll never get enough lift with that Huffy” they said. We’ll you’re showing them.

Oh, crap! My shoelace is caught in the chain. It’s caught in the chain! Okay, this could get dicey. Can you kick your shoe off? No, there’s no time. Okay, just put it out of your mind, the ramps right there.

 

Now, just take her in easy. They said you wouldn’t make it. You’re so close. They all laughed. Well, HA! You showed them. You’re gonna land this jump and everybody can suck it. Almost there. You’re gonna make it. You’re gonna…
