San Francisco held the third annual Icer Air event over the weekend. Two years ago they put a bunch of snow on one of the steep streets in the city and people wearing poofy pants launched themselves off of ramps. Everyone was happy and this made for some really interesting and beautiful photos. However the residents on Fillmore street became upset because none of them owned ice scrapers and they were all late to work the next day. They now hold the event in the Pac Bell baseball park and only the second baseman and center fielder get upset.
Some of the skiers went down backwards. That impressed me. All of them did moves I don’t the names of. That didn’t really impress me.
They had an amateur bike contest across McCovey Cove. It was great to see people out there having fun and an audience to cheer them on. However, the amateur contest vibe reminded me of so many terrible story lines from the Tony Hawk video game series.
This band rocked out for a bit and this skateboarder also rocked out for a bit. I don’t know the name of the band, the skateboarder or the trick he’s doing.
You may have realized that at this point I’ve successfully ignored the fact that I haven’t posted in over two months. Good job, me.
