It was May of 2013 and I was headed to DC for a skate trip when I got word cheap jerseys that Ron Allen was coming to roll with us for the 45 Mile Skate-A-Thon (which is a whole other story). So I grabbed some of my H-Street and LIFE Skateboards stickers to share and reminisce.

When the time came and we were chilling at Hojin Chang’s place. He’s an OG Pulaski skater that was an Am for LIFE Skateboards. And I asked Ron to pick out a sticker from my stash to sign. He chose the chair sticker and signed the back “NOT IN TROUBLE.” He then explained that when he was a kid, he often got in trouble and would end up in the chair. Like many of us as skaters, we often take something meant to deter By us and use it to propel us. The sticker is on the iridescent vinyl that was popular at the time (circa 1990).
