Momma And Poppa Should Not Be Your TM

Ever since skateboarding really exploded, I've seen all kinds of nasty emails from crazy skate parents that over-react on various things: stuff said on the mic, things I say on the site, a joke they don't get, not understanding their kid can't get a Damn Am or Tampa Am spot because he still does blunt nosegrabs, etc. It's always been am parents. This weekend we got a long email complaint from two parents of someone in the Pro Contest. Wow. Wacky parents can derail a kid's skate career for sure. Think about the last person you know that "parted" with a high profile company and is still not picked up by another company and coverage has basically dried up. Thank the parents for that. Check out some skate photos from the weekend. As usual, if you have a birth defect that involves a missing funny bone, hold down the ALT key and press F4 (Apple + Q on a Mac).
