I'm not Peggy Oki but I'm cool with the comparison
Back in the day I was often mistaken to be Peggy Oki or Shogo Kubo. I had to argue with a skater back in the 80's that this was really me in this photo taken in 1979. Well I came across this link and thought it was funny I'm still being called Peggy. Well that's an improvement from being mistaken for being Shugo who is a guy. The guy told me it couldn't be me because girls can't skate like that!
