The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword - Proving Skyloft wrong

Why is everyone being such a dick to Link? Zelda, her father -- heck, just about everyone in Link's hometown (this time) of Skyloft was giving him crap. The townspeoples' attitude painted a very specific picture for me: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword's Link is apparently the Spicoli of...
