Is Pastrami gonna do a double-axle triple-backflip with a quadruple skull-fracture this year?

I think the X-games have been instrumental in growing the sport. Not only in freestyle, but riding in general. It has made riding "cool" and has sparked the interest of young boys. For instance, "Jacko." He is a young guy and started riding at an early age. I think we will see more and more young talent coming through and placing in the X-game events.

I didn't have the opportunity to watch the X-games b/c I was too busy riding :) But, I see in the article they added a new event: Enduro X. This event looks and sounds awesome! It may just get me tuning in. Thanks for the article.

I watched the X-Games coverage this year. It was great! Backflips, frontflips, and front-side nollies are awesome in high-def! Too bad Travis had to break a leg.

I DVR'd them all, well other than the Gold rounds as many went long and the DVR cut em off. Good to see the Girls coming up in sports. Granted a few Womens events looked like the "Special X Games" in comparison to the mens events but still good to see them out there trying.

What does "nac-nac" mean? Or what is a "nac-nac?"

It's a small town in Alaska, the bridge over the Nutsack river just outside of town frequently washes out. Motorcyclists there had to device a way to cross during those time so they'd bulid ramps and jump the Nutsack, over time Nutsack got shortened to Nac Nac by native Alaskans, most of whom have few teeth from having to gnaw on animal hides to soften them for use in place of toilet paper which unfortunately doesn't fare well in the damp climate.

Yep! I read the same Wikipedia article!

It's apparently a quaint little town, just down the river from the village of Nic-Nac.

Nic-Nac used to be a lot nicer, but the overabundance of Gift Shops kinda ruined it.

The Moto X was cool. Those boys were getting punished jumping over all those logs and rocks and such.

Very good.
