2010 Summer X Games

X Games 16 is rocking it in Los Angeles for the Long Weekend. There are some pretty big names old and new coming to the World’s stage of action sports so if you want to check some of them out, here’s who to look for:

Shaun “No Snow” White

Do you remember that crazy red hair whipping a double McTwist 1260 at the halfpipe in the Vancouver Olympics earlier this year? That was Shaun White and he’s bored. He thinks he’s Winston Churchill coming out of battle and not knowing what to do with himself, so he’s going after the X Games Gold Medal in skateboarding vert.

White Whips ItWhite Whips It

Shaun has proven himself a World Class Champion and his skills are at par with the best of the rest. Shaun has shown the World that fear is not a factor when it comes to the halfpipe and it will be no surprise if he pulls off something crazy at the X Games.

Mad Dog or Mad Pup?

Everyone’s favorite new star on the BMX block has got to be 15-year-old Brett “Mad Dog” Banasiewicz. After being the youngest kid ever to win a professional BMX bike competition, Brett has his sights set on winning his first of many X Game Gold Medals.

Brett the BabeBrett the Babe

Brett’s competition is tough, but he’s already placed 2nd in the BMX Park Eliminations. Most newspapers don’t really have him picked to win the Gold Medal, but I’m picking him to win it. Brett may be young, but recent events have shown that his tricks are 2nd to no one and he’s not scared to try anything in his runs.

Most Medals for MacDonald

Only one man has competed in every single X Games since the very beginning and he’s back again to add to his record list of medals. I’m talking about Andy MacDonald and he’s scheduled to compete in the vert, street, park and big air events. Did I mention he’s 36 years old?

Geyser GamesGeyser Games

Andy’s 19 medals at the X Games have made him into the next biggest legend since Tony Hawk, and he’s not done yet. I can’t imagine Andy winning Gold in any of his events, but if he does, I’m pretty sure Hollywood will be making blockbuster movies about it.

Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!

All cheerleaders and coaches put A LOT of effort and time into making and practicing cheers. It is true that cheerleaders turn people and the players on...but it's much more than that. it's about having fun, teamwork, having some more fun, getting some exercise (uh that kinda makes it a sport right?), and great times with the other girls on your squad.   Rant over lol
