Best friends forever, and his friend beats him, and then the finals up, which happens to be his best friend, from childhood, misses his chance, the minute he gets on the ramp and splats? Like he didn't rig that. Please.



This is just as bad as Dale Earnhardt, Sr. Who made me lose a million to Jeff Gorden.

Yuh,

I would of even helped him push the car over the finish line. Only had like not even an inch to go, I don't see why he didn't push it and coast it. But, who has a working tire throughout a race and all of sudden, not even a couple of inches away from a finish line, gets a flat? Dale never lost a race. Not once in his life and all sudden to some pansy driver Gorden, does he give it up.

And, Gorden got his fame handed to him on that day of the race. Mountain Dew knew. Rigged, shot Dale's tire out, or fixed. That's a conspiracy.


I would be a millionaire by now. But, noooooo.... Gorden ruined it.

Gorden you are not my favorite by far.

I think PLG knew he didn't have anything to top that in his bag of tricks.

So he let Shawn ride out his win uninterrupted, as a friend would.

Well having respect for the dead and all I won`t go into that part of your post.


And as far as the skateboarding goes not my bag of tricks but would imagine everyone could have a bad day. Unfortunately this was a competition and did seem like something a novice would do on a non-stunt type deal. Maybe it`s the only way the guy could date his sister (or mother)
or something. Yep ok but you got to let me win the competition.

As a skateboarder myself, you would be surprised at how easy it is to bail on a trick even if you've done it thousand times or a million times flawlessly. You still can mess up and bail even on the simplest of tricks, and to say that he staged that fall dude.. You obviously missed the insane pretty much impossible run Shawn White did just a few moments earlier. He had no chance in hell at topping that run.

And to compare skateboarding to nascar is just stupid, one requires minimal skill the other requires a life long devotion of practicing from childhood on. To be good in skateboarding you have to start early, you can't just decide you wanna be a professional skateboarder at age 20 or 30 or something. You need to practice for your entire life!

Now I feel like going skating.

Peace!

wow, what a conspiracy!

Skateboarding and nascar!

Seriously?

Really? Nothing better to focus on?

You do know there are real conspiracies, that are actually interesting, don't you?

That is the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

Go on then go drive a skateboard you obviously haven't a clue.

Yeah, I would agree with the post. But, he didn't even try. He gave it away.

Nah its only stupid cause you compare nascar to skateboarding, so please stop making yourself look like an idiot!

To say he gave it away... he never had anything to give away he had already lost!

Yuh, he didn't even put up a fight. He got on the board and went SPLAT. At least he could do, is make it believable.

I would have no problems with video, if he put up a fight. But, he didn't.

He just gave up the minute he slid down.

Like, How is that any competition?

So what, he's your friend, so your going to hand the win to him?

That is not a competition.

Does his friend earn the win? Yes.

Do I think, he should of have at least gave it his all for the competition? Yes.

He never fought for the won.

Letting his friend win, isn't earning him anything.
