Won’t this make my dog feel like an under-achiever?

If your life has been lacking enough skateboarding dog then the Nationals have an event for you: “Pups In the Park” will be happening on Saturday, May 14th and followed up with two more in the following months. It’s a promotional event targeted at dog owners who can’t think of anything they’d rather do than try to get their pooch to hold still through a three hour game involving men throwing around a ball their dog isn’t allowed to go chase.

Think how different that baseball game would be if they were, though. Oh yeah, I’d be down with that.

It wouldn’t be a special event without a famous guest, so for the first event they’ll have Tillman the skateboarding dog. No word on where they’re putting the half-pipe so Tillman can do some ollies.

Subsequent PitP events will happen sans canine Tony Hawk and will be on Saturday, July 9 vs. the Rockies and Saturday September 24 vs. the Braves.

And before you ask, yes: one of the best things about this gig is often the absolutely hysterical press releases we get sent.

Joking aside, Tillman is pretty amazing. You can sooth your appetite till the 14th with a huge selection of videos of him kicking it on a skateboard and a skimboard and a snowboard.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
