Generally, yeah.

There will always be exceptions. But, I remember back in 1986 (strong memories of my 7th grade P.E. class), kids practiced their moves at every opportunity. It was a national obsession, if not bigger.

I think when most people look back on that time, they see an embarassing trend they'll never admit having got caught up in.

When I look back, I see spectacular athleticism, and a lot of people walking away from something fun.

The main difference, I suppose, is that I was never any good at breakdancing. I resented just about everybody for it, but realized the other day that I actually admire them. And, that's rare for me, to find something worth admiring in just about everybody.

Except, on the whole, they gave up on it.
