1Hey Coach,
I was trying to grind this bench outside the Dollar Store and I landed in this funky way and my knee has been killing me ever since. What should I do?

Hey manunitedkid,
You need to do a couple of things. If your knee's killing you, go see a doctor. It may just be badly bruised but it could be something more serious and you don't want to jeopardize your promising skateboarding career. Secondly, you should learn how to grind a bench without landing in a funky way that makes your knee hurt. Whenever you're trying grinds, or any other skateboard tricks that are a bit difficult, you're going to have your share of wipeouts. If you're doing a trick that you're not familiar with, wear knee pads, a helmet and other protective gear (you may even be able to buy some at the Dollar Store where you're hanging out.)

Do you have a question on basketball, football, skateboarding, injuries, fitness or anything else to do with sports? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.

    Oops forgot about this! At Darlington Kevin Harvick wins after passing Dale Jr. With 2tg on a GWC. Johnson comes home in 3rd. Jeff Gordon keeps his points lead. Kenseth and Edwards are stalking him in the points. [-News-] Gene Haas has announced that he is planning on making a F1 team. None of his Stewart-haas drivers will be driving in it though. Subway recently is looking for sponsor in F1. This could become a deal. Lack of funding for the team of Swan Racing (Parker Kligerman and Cole Whitt) May cause it to shutdown. Team spokesman says that lack of funds has been an issue of lately but they plan to keep on going.
