Sick as a dog today. (Do dogs really get that sick? Where the heck did that expression come from? It's explained somewhat on the 'net, but not the origins.) So the couple things I really wanted to do just didn't come together.
Instead, I'll just link to this and admit that I don't get it. Not that I won't be there, given the opportunity, but I'm not sure what people are trying to accomplish these days. Doesn't designing a ramp specifically to break a record make the record itself kind of inconsequential? Shouldn't you get more air on a bigger ramp? (And regardless of records, Mat(t) Hoffman is a legend—he rode a monster ramp first—and Jamie Bestwick is the best. No amount of Red Bull money will change that.)
Funny that they're doing it in Central Park rather than Woodward or somewhere in Cali—I suppose the hope is that it'll get more media coverage in New York. And I assume it'll get some play on New York 1, as well as on ESPN. Unfortunately I'd guess the newspaper coverage will be minimal. Unless, of course, something goes terribly wrong.
So good luck, Kevin. Hope it means a lot to you.
