    Chase Hawk, BMX Gold Medal at X-Games

    Even though I'm down with a chest cold, I'm swelling with excitement because Chase Hawk, the son of my good friend Danny Hawk, just won the Gold Medal in the BMX competition. I've known Chase since he was born and so I'm kind of astounded that he's developed into a world-wide celebrity athlete, truly a "rock star."

    I was playing an afternoon gig at Whole Foods one afternoon, and as I was tearing down my equipment, Chase came up, said "Hey, Herb!" and then we had a good conversation... he was leaving for London to make a bike movie, then a competition in Moscow, oh yeah got a new endorsement deal from Oakley sunglasses, the "usual" stuff ... then he split.

    Right then a totally hot, mid-20's mega-babe comes up to me and asks "excuse me, sir. Was that Chase Hawk you were talking to?"

    I said yeah, I've known him his whole life, I'm a friend of his dad.

    The girl completely freaked out! "Oh... My... Gawwwwwdddd! I don't be-LEEEEEEEVE it!!!"

    I'm really proud of the kid, just gotta tell y'all.
    Son, we live in a world with lakes, and those lakes have to be guarded by men with fishing rods.

    Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinberg

    True! Those guys do some amazing tricks on those little bikes. Back flips, somersaults, spinning wheels in mid-air, all that stuff. Too much for this old man, lemme tell ya.

    I was out there for his win. and have seen him at the trails before.
    he put up a smooth run on Sunday, and had the crowd on their feet.
    it was pretty cool to see the local win such a high-profile contest.
