Loose Cannon: ladies' first

By Adam Salo

One of the things your average X Games viewer might not realize while watching the contests on television or on your computers at home, sometimes things behind the scenes can get a little weird. During one of the practice days before the events of X Games 17 really heated up, Andrew Cannon and I were watching the ladies of Women's Skateboard Street. Wishing we could go skate the course during the ladies only practice, I asked Cannon if he'd be willing to wear a dress in order to skate just then. One thing you should know about Cannon, he's up for just about any type of shenanigans. After a short trip to the costume shop, Cannon was looking like a lovely princess and made it past security onto the course. Once there, he challenged his friend, three-time X Games medalist, Alexis Sablone to a friendly game of SKATE. This is how it went down.
