The X-Games are always a part of our summer. The people attending, the people participating, they are The Gorilla's people. Meaning they are the type of people he likes to be around, and they're the type of people who like to watch his shows. It is a subculture.
This year, a cranky pregnant woman (me) and a very busy guy (him) meant that we only made it to one night of the three day event. We were there long enough to watch Travis (the star of one of The Gorilla's former shows) break his foot and ankle, and then watch a portion of the BMX Big Air before joining a rowdy crowd for dinner.
