Awww, he hurt his bum.

Lol, I've done far more stupider things on a bike at his age, at least he was wearing a helmet.

Those other kids are ******bags for

A) Being not caring and laughing
B) Saying "ROFL" out loud.




That little kid is baddass. I would cry if I did a flip onto a curb.

He wore a helmet. Smart guy! But a motorcycle jacket with a back protector might come in handy next time he's attempting another stunt like this.

^that catch is a bit hard to believe. in my opinion: not enough time to size up the left fielder's decision to pass on the ball, then pull a dave winfield up the wall.

maybe the left fielder was playing really short and she went for it. pretty cool looking either way. and yes, she's got mad skills. that's f'n hard to do.

as for the biker:

that kid's lucky it wasn't a square curb.

big brothers can be real dickheads.

The older kids need to have their butts whooped. That's completely irresponsible.

Agreed. There was a thread on this a couple of days ago. It was set up by some production company.

Obviously they're aero brakes.

Well that's what kids do during the summer (rarely with the talent of the little guy, though). Happens all the time, even before the invention of the digital camera!

That crap isn't funny. It's because of "fun" things like that that I did when I was that age that I screwed up my back to the point where some days I am completely immobile, while other days I can ride 50 miles without an issue. And no one laughed at me then or now.

Hit a nerve. It wouldn't have been so bad except the others were laughing at him so hard.
