ROCK THE CRADLE – Johnny Romano

Houston gets rocked!

Johnny Romano Rock the cradle 2009

 

The Johnny Romano/ Rock the cradle contest topped the charts and broke the record. I don’t what record or whose it was, but I found it over in the corner with a bunch of 8 tracks. I’m sure you’ve read all you need to read about the contest so I’ll keep it short and use pictures to do the talking

Jim Gray was warming up for days. Just spinning around and around in circle. I’m not sure if anyone has explained these new fangled spin tricks to Jim

 

Lets get back to Rocking the cradle

 

Sergie showing speed and style still make the difference

Adam Wiggins so smooth and loose, yes I’m talking about Adam. The t-shot is just pure bonus

Mike Rogers, grind for life was getting some grinds. You could either donate blood or pay 10 bucks to enter the contest. I heard the blood truck collected enough to save 75 lives

 

Sky Siljeg qualified number 1 but finished 11th

Well as for me I hurt myself wednesday on a four foot high freaking mini ramp. I tailgated the event with old friends, smoked some briskets,jerked some chicken and drank a lot of Lonestar.
