    It's the Superbowl, the World Series, and the Wrestlemania of alternative and extreme sports - It's the X-Games!!!

    Travis Pastrana just pulled off a double back flip via motocross best trick! And I saw it live!!! This coming from the first guy to ever do a single backflip in '99 at age 14/15 and actually broke his back doing a trick. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Travis_Pastrana

    Shaun White is going for a 1080 in a few moments, I'm so pumped for that. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaun_White

    I saw that doublr backflip live as well. It was good to see Travis have a ghealthy respect for what he was going to attempt and to be extremely cautious. It was a hell of a trick though.

    To bad Shaun White could not pull off his 1080 last night, but he tried an amazing 18 times in a half hour - that shows a lot of character getting up after falling 20+ feet over and over again.

    Tony Hawk was quoted as saying it took him hundreds of tries, or at least felt like it, to achieve his 900.

    BMX street is on right now. SWEET.
