Well, as I always like to do, my birthDAY becomes a birthWEEK celebration. Blew it out from Thursday thru Sunday to celebrate 43 years on the flying mudball we call Earth. Don't fret though...you can still send all your NOS decks, petty cash and Southwest airline drink vouchers to me as a gift! (hahaha)
And of course, I did spend some time checking out the X-Games (although I was trying to boycott them due to their decision to cut the women's vert and bowl contest in order to have pro video gamers there....uggg...but that's another discussion). Hated to see Bucky not win vert, but he was hurt and did manage to finally take a medal in rally racing! The big air contest was great to see but without Way in there it doesn't seem as much a competition as a demo of a few kids and Bob Burnquist. (haha) I think the Brazilian skater,Edgard Pereira, got ripped off in that too by the way. Street or "guess who comes in second place to Nyjah Huston" went as expected. The bowl contest however was AWESOME!!!! Loved to see our local boy Grant Taylor come in second!!! Pedro...well...he was just Pedro. haha McClain killed and could win if he could just stay on a run! Caples and Jaws were fun to watch. Just the whole thing was great to watch! Now, next year, let's hope they get the women back in there!
