Houston gets rocked!

Words by Dave Donaldson, Photos by Peter Furnee

The Johnny Romano/ Rock the cradle contest at the Houston Skatepark 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

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

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.
