Grew up playing basketball among other sports and activities. These days I directly see the result of little glowy things like iPads and computers. Hard for me to wrap around the fact that famous people use to be a category now the word “famous” was replaced by “youtube or youtuber”. My kids have stared more at their iPads than Jimmy Levan has stared at himself to get ready in the mirror. Tonight before dinner bell goes off, which was 10 minutes away, we go outside and play some basketball. Its really nice our hoop is forgiving and a bit lower than regulation. Figure we play 10 minutes then eat. My daughter sees a school bus #211 where the two 1’s are lower than the rest. Its 6pm who is driving this so late? That second after we turned back to basketball a huge rottweiler dog runs in front of the bus. Brakes squeal the front tires. Then the dog just starts to run off…not fast but enough where the owner could not catch. Neighbors all come running out cause it was a unique noise plus a big yellow bus at night. Owner can’t catch her dog and they run around the corner. Guess this had to be seen by my kids so I could answer their questions. They describe what they see. None of us know what to do next. But deep in my mind if they asked why puerto rico has no power and the hurricanes keep hitting the island would be a tough explanation. Thoughts for that dog, think he will be fine, but…puerto rico and the islands are changed for life. Thoughts about all the BMX’rs and people of the islands, be safe. -Chad D

@matuptobat giving it a few warm ups getting up and over @clayer72 for the @grindwheel #dreamteamchallenge steady knocking out challenges on the daily. -Mat ” this is one of the best events for any local Bmx scene. Glad to see it starting to spread around the states a bit. People have been going in on their challenges. I hit a car attempting to clear 25 ft. off a kicker downtown. I can’t wait to see everyone’s entries this year!”
There’s certain bands I have to listen to at certain spots. This is my Unwound “The future of what” spot. Had I been over-riding this bare bones set up 20+ years ago (as much as I do now), I would definitely have worn out a pirated LP version recorded on a 90 minute Maxell cassette tape. – @matt_coplon – #bmx #decobmx @decobmx #streets #cycling
