Ice Skater Crashes Into the Wall

I took my date ice skating this past weekend. I figured it would be a good activity for us to do together because we both hadn't been on ice skates in about ten years. As I struggled to keep myself upright, my date skated as if she'd been at it for months. She was immediately graceful while I struggled to keep coordinated. She was skating rings around me.

It took me a while to get the hang of it, but I eventually got to the point where I could skate pretty well without having to hug the outside rail. In fact, I was doing so well, I decided to make a little video of myself skating and describing how I had progressed from clodhopper to semi-graceful in about 30 minutes. While I was filming myself, I saw out of the corner of my eye a skater speeding towards his friends. He was intending to stop hard and ice them. He hit the wall instead.

I managed to get a snippet of the video starting right when he hit the wall.
