The Rest

Frumped by


Other than a brief, adolescent ambition to become the next Tony Hawk, I’ve never been terribly taken by “Extreme Sports.” In fact, I find scenes like this to be exponentially more entertaining than anything I’ve experienced via the X Games over the past fifteen years, and the same can be said for the video that follows.

The build-up to this one is exceptional,  and well worth Dad’s eventual, epic fail. Dad’s awesome “Win” there at the end is nothing to scoff at either.

Believe it or else, though, I think my favorite part of this clip is the epic concern expressed by Dad’s family.  Really tugs at the ole heartstrings, yeah?

Right or wrong, I’m pretty sure a scene like this would have met with immediate derision – however lighthearted – in the household of my Powell-Peralta past.  That and maybe an epic argument over the sentimental attachment to that china cabinet…

If you enjoyed that, make the jump for several other “Dad trying to skateboard” fails. Great Wednesday/Hump Day time killer. We promise…

The Cockney cackle alone make this one worth the watch…

Seriously – why start your skateboarding career on an incline?

Again, just try to keep things on the level at first…

Fine. I give up…

Well, maybe the grade of the surface isn’t the source of the problem after all…

I guess at this point, it’s no wonder the kids start turning on Pops…

Family pets, too…

In the end, however, it must be nice to know your offspring care about you enough to take the time to do this…
