Went to the Vans Downtown Showdown the other day to watch the Pretzel Grip team do their thing.
When I showed up Rickk and Rudy were getting Interviewed for The Skateboard Mag.
Ray Barbee was there!
So were the Mezas...
And the Owens'.
When I got there the Pretzel Grip Time Trials were under way already. People were eating shit left and right.
Metee was the team traffic cop for the day. Clocking fools.
Within 10 minutes of getting there Rickk had already thrown an entire pizza on my head. Standard job hazard.
BA and Donny Barley were there!
Vince broke his board, but luckily Frank was there to pit crew.
Tony and Vince went off pretty hard on the Zero obstacle.
I think Tony was listening to the Giants game between runs.
Sunny Smyth was there. Cold lampin'.
While we waited for the results guys told some jokes...
Tried to relax with some urban yoga...
Enjoyed some extreme video games. I think that's a kickflip.
I stopped by Gerwer's Pizza shop to get a slice...
Yo put a little extra mozzerella on that motherfucker.
Pay the man!
When it was time to watch the results I took a page out of the Dimitry Elyaskavich contest coverage rulebook. (Watched it on the jumbotron). Pfanner!
Vince won best pro.
Giving back to the fans.
Waiting for the best team announcement...
Pretzel Grip took it!
There was a lot of celebrating.
Schwartzeneger and Carl Weathers couldn't have done it better.
Then it was off to the bar to work on the Pretzel Grip gang signs.
O'Meally and Mehring were there to celebrate.
Then shit just got out of hand...
The douchebag in the red was over it.
And the party was a wrap.
