Rob Meronek's Cell Phone Edit: Tampa Pro 2012

Warning for kids: there are a lot of words that they don't put in the dictionary in this video. Ask ma and pops if you can watch. So much went down during Tampa Pro from Thursday to Sunday, it's hard to shrink it down to a single edit. I had my phone out and was filming the whole time as usual.

Chill Cam Dump

Not only did I have my phone out filming the whole weekend, I also had my camera pointed in your face, and sometimes mine. Here are some of my favorites from the weekend from the Contest to the nightlife and everything in between: Tampa Pro 2012 Chill Cam Dump.
