From the artists: Our neighborhood in South County was filled with kids. We were always playing sports in the street. One of our favorite was putting on our roller skates and playing street hockey. William and Matt would team up against me and our neighbor Sean and we would play for hours. Cars would drive by and we thought we were so cool to yell “Game off!” and then resume play with a “Game on!,” a line from one of our favorite movies at the time, Wayne’s World.
