08' Platty's

I think I remember that I did the original Platty's in March of this same year, but alas, the whole damn thing is lost to the world of 101001010101's and such. Time magazine just did their lists issue, and it's close enough to being the end of the year, seeing as how of this writing it is the fifteenth of December, yet this is to post days later. Anyways, here is the time for me to poke fun at my friends, actually praise them, note things that actually are important, or just make shit up. Nonetheless, here are the 2008 Platty Awards:

damn, Munzy nominating himself for 3 awards? c'mon dog, a little modesty never hurt a soul....

Slow as a Turtle award goes to Dom.

platinumseagulls said...

I didn't just nominate myself for 3 awards, but I gave myself three awards, though I don't think the prestige of having broken up with my girlfriend (award 1), still being friends with my ex (award 2), and the fact that I'm going to school (award 3) take much away from my modesty. Justsayyin'.

jewish girls are not the new hotness. they have always been the hotness. they are the chosen people. eyebrows for days. sheet sex for days. basically, what i am trying to say is this is the best jew food i have ever had.

the mantis said...

First off, Thank you to Munzy and The Plat. No hard feelings, I hope? Seriously what you do, is great! Second, I am just so fucking honored to win a Platty! I still can't beleive it. 09' is on it's way, and I will continue to Lurk Hard, or Hardly Lurk. Thanks again, Mike

littlebit said...

Lets be wack this year: 3rd Lair

Todd Brown said...

Dan Jackson. Hardest working man in skateboarding. And by the way ian is far from over rated and his style is rad. Fucking haters are so weak put your fucking name up.

HPJ said...

Why Oakdale??? The Bowl corner is a shame to all bowl corners!
Ledges are everywhere, that cant be why you like it!???
Maybe its because the Edina Park is way to Gnarly for ya! Nothing even comes close to the Edina Grindline park, Are you crazy!???
Look it up! You must not know about it.

BIGGEST SURPRISE OF 09'- SOUTH OF THE METRO

every skateboarder in MPLS said...

MARK ASS BUSTER OF THE YEAR! - MARK MULLER

Y? = For Making skateboarding a CRIME!!

Anonymous said...

HPJ, the Edina park sucks ass. I'm sure you rule the place with the 3 variations of frontside slashers that you can muster up. Oakdale is liked because you can actually do some tricks and skate something other than some obvious over tight tranny.

THE HESH said...

sherman is still better than whoever is trying to hate on his style. I love that people try to hate on someone that will always be a better skateboarder than them.
And as for the 3rd lair hate... make sure you know who you hate. Some of us are just trying to keep a job.

so I got to this late (clearly) but I'm honored to have received a few mentions. Don't check your ego - the break-up/friendship awards are deserved. Plus, you wouldn't be you without it.
