Blurby: It’s couples' skating night down at the local rink and Elena Armstrong can’t seem to keep her cocky jock blind date around long enough to knee him in the balls. Sadly, she was too much of a cheapskate to pay for a membership to an online dating site and based everything on Leonard’s personality profile alone. Big mistake.
At the opposite end of the rink, Ben Kessel, another cheapskate on a blind date with Iris, the ice princess, is having a similarly miserable time. Elena, a hater of all things sports-related, inches out into the skating world butt-first and collides with Ben. After sharing their hilarious and horrifying dates-gone-wrong stories, the two disappear and make everything right again on the floor in the players’ dressing room. Almost everything. They forget to exchange numbers. Now these two cheapskates need to make the ultimate sacrifice: pay for a membership to the online dating site so they can track each other down. But is the possibility of love really worth the price of $24.95 per month?
How long have I been here?
Her toes were numb, her ears were burning, and her jeans were so stiff she could barely move. Wasn’t moving the whole point? Not that there really was a point. All this going ‘round and ‘round in a circle, over and over again, like a goddamned hamster on a wheel. Who was the moron who invented skates, anyway? She had no idea why she agreed to strap the torture devices onto her feet in the first place. She’d rather run down a hill at full speed in eight-inch heels than spend another minute with her toes crammed into these inflexible death traps.
