um, I don't recall exactly. But if that's his claim to fame, I don't want to take it away from him. So yeah, he beat me... badly. I never recovered from that embarrassment.

haha, my favorite is THPS2 because it put skateboarding on the map as a videogame genre and many people have said it is the reason they started skating at all.

I always finish my games with my "pre-made" character so that I know all of "my" special moves and I'm ready for any random challengers. So I play with myself, so to speak.

I become crazed when I can smell anyone cooking Bagel Bites nearby. I have no excuse, but I am seeking therapy for this issue.

My only secret is that I never quit. As I get older, I am not as interested in doing (aka too scared to do) bigger airs or more spins. I've learned to refine my skating with more technical moves that are less taxing on the body. I'll never quit, but I might not do it in public as much if I start sucking at it.

It's always fun, but you have to keep your drink and your crotch covered at all times. Since that's not possible, one of those two things will be violated when you least expect it.
