My Skateboard Appearance on Tomorrow’s Tuesday Night News

Mike Shumann, sports anchor (among other things) on local ABC News, did a story on me skateboarding a few months ago and it’s appearing tomorrow night at 6:45 on Channel 7, ABC News in San Francisco. Also at 9:50 0n Channel 13.

I spent a great few hours in Golden Gate Park with photographer Abe Mendoza on a Sunday morning, and then Mike came out and we sat in the sun and talked. He did his own filming, a Renaissance kind of newsman. Mike was a wide receiver with the 49ers in the Joe Montana days; he’s the real deal.

   I get all this media attention as a skater but in reality my skills are quite minimal.  It’s just that I’m so old. I’m in awe of real skateboarders, they are unbelievable (and muchly under-acknowledged) athletes –coordination, grace, guts.
