When Mike Chexx’s mom told me last night that she thinks I’m “so cute” on the track, I had to wonder if she was thinking of Honey Hellfire. Note: I will never complain about getting mixed up with a gorgeous woman and a great skater who’s significantly younger than me. I’ve just learned to take [...]
