dennis busenitz!

congratulations, dennis!  you can pick up your award at...  but seriously, we all know he's doing it best right now.  i'm calling it.  SOTY, 2009.  if he doesn't win, phelps, i'm coming for you.

nick trapasso

i really like watching nick trapasso skate.  he's smooth, and doesn't seem like he's trying, or that he even gives a fuck.  also, he's a dead ringer for bob dylan, which gives him a lot of points.
