Old Man Bowl Jam Skate Park Of Tampa

Old Man Bowl Jam

Forget the little red sports car: the new symbol for midlife crisis is the skateboard. Graying members of Generation X, and even their older brothers, are reclaiming their youth and rebellious streak by hopping back on a skate deck. Some are even showing off old tricks in the skate park.

It’s the latest gasp for a generation of perma-dudes who listen to Black Flag in their BMWs and trade high-fives in client meetings. It’s a bid to escape the corporate grind, beat back their flagging vigor and even make good on a generational cliché: to extend their adolescence until their federal prescription-drug benefit kicks in. The good news is that SPOT is organizing a contest for OG's. So, if you like skateboarding pizza and beer, head on to Skate Park of Tampa on February 19, there will be blood... (in plastic bags of course, so bring your Ibuprophene and Glucosamine)...
