Roberto Aleman seems to be getting better with age like wine or something. It was nice to see him ripping in the Finals.

Where did Grant get the wacky glasses? It was good to see him getting loose and having a good time. This backside tailslide on the fish tank wall was at the request of the crowd.

I spy double Ricks, Rick McCrank and Rick Howard.

The right crowd.
Shane O'Neill got into a crazy car accident in a cab the first day he got here. The cab driver went to the hospital, but Shane was okay other than some chest pains that acted up while skating. He had to sit out a bit of a Finals because of that, but he still got in plenty of amazing tricks. This is a switch nosegrind.

Master Fat Man and his crew of Africans during the awards ceremony. Make sure to check out the video.
Master Fat Man had a fanner. These were the fanner's kicks. They're like the spinners of shoes.
Frank Gerwer nose what's up.

Do any venues in the US need signs like this?

It's nearly 9:30pm and it's still bright enough to get a sun tan outside. Good night and goodbye, Copenhagen. See you next year for an even better one.
