Did Tony Hawk Get Matt Lauer Fired?

Earlier this week Tony Hawk went on the NBC’s TODAY show to “Fight for Good” with the LGBT unfriendly Salvation Army.

Of course there was a photo op with the NBC hosts, including Matt Lauer, who got fired for inappropriate sexual behavior the next day.

Which got us wondering, who will be the first Pro skater to be fired for sexual harassment?

Update: Tony seems to have deleted the photo from all his social channels?

Tony Hawk’s Big Spin

This new roller coaster, made by Gerstlauer in Germany, is patterned after the moves of professional skateboarder Tony Hawk. Instead of zipping along on tracks where each time you ride you move in the same pattern of ups, downs and arounds, this roller coaster has cars that spin as if you’re free-styling on a skateboard. None of the spins match each other so each time you ride, the experience is different.

We stopped dissing Tony Hawk out of respect. But we are more than capable of dissing Gerstlauer (The manufacturer), for making the ride only 45-50 feet tall. Just goes to show you that the marketing is directed toward children.
