“Yo! Dude! Get this one!” this kid yelled before jumping into the shot I had framed of tourists taking photos in LOVE Park.
“Pretty cool trick!” I said, suddenly realizing that I sounded like someone’s dad. “Want me to email you the shot?”
“I have to set that stuff up,” he said, catching his breath.
“Set what stuff up?”
“Email, Google Plus, a YouTube channel, you know? Twitter, all that crap, so I can get a sponsor.”
Well, any skateboarding sponsors out there looking for a kid of no more than 11 who can do this trick and has some serious swagger, come on down to LOVE Park. I’m sure he’ll be there practicing.
