Fear the Crete - It is on an offensive.

Name the Cretin who hit the crete - literally - without his pads today.


Anyway, it must be going around. After I left the park today I stopped at Heine Brothers where I ran into Mike - a supercool cat that I ran into at the park twice in as many days. He was sporting a cast on his right arm. He said he broke a bone in his wrist right after we parted ways yesterday. He goes into surgery for it next week, so it ain't yer standard kind of break. Send the pictured swellbow sufferer, Mike, and all fallen skaters all the positive Gnar you muster tonite as you hit the pillow - maybe that will save you on your next trip to the park.

    Hmmm... I'll guess Travio... as I know you were waiting on him, and he tends to skate without pads more often than anyone but Mofo... And that looks like a lead elbow slam... probably from an unforeseen hang up on a frontside by a goofy footer...

    Didn't your mommy tell you to wear your pads, Concrete takes no prisoners. Old men don't heal well. Put your smelly pads on and live to skate another day.

    I'm going to guess Travio as well. I know that Skidz posted but he always wears hit pads. I can picture Travio just dinking around (probably w/o a helmet too) unpadded now in my head... comfortably hitting his lines and looking so relaxed while he flows - then BLAM... swellbow :(

    Travie was fully padded but his elbow go figure. The full pipe claims another.

    Nice NoShow! Ever do a google for Concretins? Entire first page is US (or directly related)... Fame first, fortune will follow... right?

    And now Trav is discovering how often you actually bang your elbow on things around the house. Because a bump like that tends to be a magnet... hurts dudnit?

    Concretin Fame + ? = Profit

    I'm working on the formula with the underpants gnomes. I think we forgot to the carry the two.

    Ha! I also did an image search on Google for Concretin. The first page was all us except for the picture of the Alberta Badlands. Wha? Oh well. Your new deck was the third image. Nice!

    Travio, was this because you and Mr. the Bone split elbow pads or were you totally padless in the elbow region? Either way, my condolences. Looks nasty!
