Five for July 6th:
Carli Lloyd. I’m not going to sit here and pretend I’m some kind of soccer fan- I’m really not- but that midfield goal for a hat trick in a World Cup game was insane no matter how little your level of fandom.
House party. Hosted not one but two get-togethers over the weekend at the house- family on Friday, friends on Saturday. The Forest Park fireworks were fully visible from our front lawn and good times were had.
Skate or die. A couple of sessions over the weekend, including a super fun (and sweltering) afternoon at JB and a quick early evening at Webster followed by some curb-crunching at Deer Creek with Andy. I'll take it.
Cool stuff. The goofballs, new episode of Grosso’s Loveletters, Detroit then and now, Jane is signed up for gymnastics, cheap scratch & dent hot pink Tony Hawk reissue, gyros with Tom.
Kingshighway. The bridge comes down today, and along with it shall go St. Louis’ first true DIY skatepark. It was never my favorite spot, but I definitely had some good times there over the years, and it was always cool to open up a random copy of Thrasher and see it getting massacred by one road-tripping skate crew or another.
