WOW that kid Jantard is such a bender, look at how he skates! It would be no surprise if he taped his ankles.

A suggested desicion for totally hopeless benders includes playing down a couple tiers, playing girls hockey, figure skating, or just quiting the sport all together.
I was going to practice with the AAA kids today, but last time they took my ankle harness and shot pucks at me because I'm a bender.
