Rejection is the hardest thing we face. Mike waits to be played in a match, but never gets his turn after hearing grand promises of being a star player. The coach placed him on the team to bridge a gap between "jocks" and "skaters" - an all too common phenomenon in the 90's. Mike, the athletically inclined skater, is too small to help the coach achieve his main interest: WINNING. This photo was taken in the early 90's by Mike's dad. Mike is now 33, produces music and paints trains.
