I posted a pic of Mr. Block’s car at the top of this post becuase I think it is a rad looking car but this post isn’t about his car. I am writing this post about a problem that is affecting our beloved action sports stars in pandemic proportions; the problem is malnutrition.
It’s seems lately some of our favorite athletes aren’t eating enough calories to sustain their boyish good looks; with all of their endorsement money and sponsorships can’t someone give them a sandwich?
Travis Pastrana: He looks hungry, he used to be such a well built and dare I say “striking” young man, now he looks like he hasn’t seen the inside of a supermarket in weeks. Travis, is the Metal Mulisha team stealing your lunch money?
Tony Hawk: This poor guy is so hungry he has to wear a hoodie with the hood up and have a fur blanket just to stay warm. Didn’t he go to some parties for his videogame releases? I have been to those kind of parties, there is tons of food.
Ken Block: Look at this virile young man, he knows that eating all his food groups and drinking his milk is the way to go. It also looks like the lovely blond girl behind him agrees with his theory.
What we do know is that on September 12, Fuel TV will be premiering the episode of their show “Firsthand” featuring Ken Block, to learn more about the show, keep reading..
