Headline: Man Teaches Daughter, No Tears Shed
Bystanders looked on in shocked admiration as the man quickly navigated his daughter through the you're-going-to-fall-on-your-ass-no-matter-what phase of skating.
The girl fell on her ass a couple of times, in fact, but didn't cry, and seemed genuinely interested in continuing.
"Clearly the father is a genius," one witness commented, "but the girl deserves full marks for sticking it out."
The father, originally from Canada, asked that his name be withheld from this report. "We Canadians are a humble race, and we avoid the limelight whenever possible," he said by way of explanation.
The man did say, however, that he was extremely proud of his daughter. He thought he might have a few beers tonight to celebrate.
