Those kids just won't believe

Michael and Matthew think they are going to be skaters. They beg for boards, but all they have so far are scooters, plus all of the safety equipment. Maybe in the next year or so, I'll get them a good starter board.

Anyway, this all leads into something that happened this morning. They saw a picture of my friend John Erbach, and they now think I know Tony Hawk. No matter how much I tell them John is not Tony, they insist I know him. They have things they want to show him, they want to see him skate, etc. Maybe I should just take them to Huntsville, let them meet Erbach, and they can spend the rest of their life thinking they met Tony Hawk :)

For one - I'm not even sure how they know who Tony Hawk is, but that's another matter.

Just so you can see:

John Erbach:

Tony Hawk:

I know John Erbach. I used to work at the Mill with him.

Yep. I miss him (and others) quite a bit. Not enough to move back to Huntsville, mind you :)

I've been talking online and on phone with Duggo (Doug Williamson) and Saturday night talked to Thomas Gibson for a while on the phone.

It truly has been a week for memories.

I just can't get over my boys thinking Erbach is Tony Hawk *laugh*

Could he pull it off?
Seems the deal-breaking issue on whether to pass off John as Tony is, can John skate?? Less importantly, can he say Boom-Boom Huck Jam five times fast?

Might be worth it - I'm already laughing at the image of you telling them the truth when they're 15 after they've told their friends a hundred times about their brush with greatness.

Funny you should ask - ACTUALLY, John CAN skate :)

Maybe you don't need to feed the lie. The kids would probably be impressed with him no matter what his name is.
