I see there’s been alot of posts lately regarding Bmx. Wheres the love for skating? I ride bmx and I’m somewhat into skating. Skating and Bmx seem to distance themselves from one another, I think they’re needs to be a little more unity between the two sports. Why don’t we get over the differences hop on a board, hop on a bike and go have a session?
Saw this video and I thought it was pretty darn interesting. Check it out!!!
Today, or should I say yesterday on May 3rd of 2014, the Stacked bmx shop had it’s grand opening, while I had a busy schedule for most of yesterday I went to the grand opening late, fashionably late. This didn’t bother Larry Alvarado whose the founder of the shop, he was just happy me and my friend went to give our support. Since we were so late we were pretty much the only ones left so he gave us a quick tour and story on why he started his own shop and damn is he a real dude, told us everything and didn’t hold back. To keep a long story short he worked in a different bike shop for many years, yet he couldn’t handle all the bullshit that was going on with said bike shop.
He quit and after some time of doing what any real bmx loving biker would do, film and ride with your homies as much as you can, he decided to live the bmxers dream and make his own bmx specific shop. No bullshit, no drama, just a real shop supporting real brands. This is the place to go if you need help with anything on your bike of even if you just want to chill and talk bmx, man does this dude have bmx knowledge. Larry Alvarado was actually so chill and kind he let CMFA Clothing do an exclusive walk through of his new shop. Thanks again Larry.
As many of you know, the X Games will be held in Austin, Texas 2014 June 5-8.
For those of you who don’t know much about the X Games, it is an annual sports event which focuses on extreme sports. Various athletes come together to compete in the X Games. The sports which are said to take place in the Summer X Games include: Moto X, Rally & Off-Road Truck, Skateboarding, and Bmx. Not to mention the fact that Major League Gaming will be holding a Call of Duty tournament at the X Games this summer…
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anything against gamers. In fact, I think it’s great that professional gamers get together to have competitions and enjoy what they love doing. Although the X Games focuses on extreme sports… it was founded around the idea of showcasing extreme sports. What’s so extreme about Call of Duty? There’s people that have been hospitalized after playing video games for long periods of time… I guess that’s pretty extreme? Maybe it’s a marketing strategy? By bringing Call of Duty into the X Games, it attracts more people to attend and while they’re their they stay to watch the actual X Games?
It’s easy to sit here and critique others on their actions. In a sense I like the fact that MLG (Major league Gaming) will be at the X games. The people in charge are trying something different and who knows… it might just work out? Maybe Call of Duty will take the X Games in a different direction and extreme sports will get more media attention.
Personally, I’m a little displeased that gaming is being showcased at the upcoming X Games. I feel like Call of Duty might kill the spirit of the X Games and make it all lame. Not because Call of Duty is lame, in fact I think it’s amazing. Although I feel like gaming doesn’t mix with extreme sports… I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way? It’s like water and oil…. they just don’t mix.
Whether you’re an NBA fan or you like to tune into the playoffs, the Los Angeles Clippers scandal between the owner, Donald Sterling, deserves all the attention right now. For those who have no clue what I’m talking about, Sterling was allegedly making racist comments about minorities that was quite wrong. The scandal had lots of people wondering how the Clippers would react. At one point, the word was that the Clippers may possibly cancel game 4. But that didn’t happen as they players reacted in a whole different way, choosing fashion as a means of silence. Before the game started, the entire Clippers roster gathered up at mid-court to remove their shooting shirts while their warmups underneath were turned inside out. The Houston Rockets participated in the protest by wearing black wristbands that signaled the league to hand Sterling the harshest punishment possible.[UPDATE]: The NBA has decided to ban Donald Sterling from the league for life and a $2.5 million fine to go with that. I also heard sources say that Sterling will be forced to sell the team.
