But no matter how well I could skate in a straight line or turn (well for a first time skater), I just could not figure out how to stop. Probably took me about 5 hours of game time to finally figure it out and I was so damn excited.

It's never to late to learn a new skill!
Man, these sound like my situation. There's hope for me yet!
