A gentleman and a scholar this lad is, even if he is going through a self harming phase… The past lot of times we’ve skated I’ve witnessed Micky take some horrific slams, some that would leave lads on the couch for a week on a mindless binge of Storage Hunters. But Mikey always surfaces the next day looking for more. I thought this was going to be another one of those occasions but thankfully he blasted his way to freedom done this bank.
