When I first saw the extreme sport of Street Luge a few years backs while watching the X-Games on ESPN, I thought it was so cool and so crazy at the same time. Lay flat on a board going downhill on concrete at blinding speeds? Where do I sign up.......to watch? Seriously, it is crazy and so dangerous. The wipeouts are spectacular.
So are you an idiot if you try it? Not if you are a superhero!!! Today, Iron Man showed me how it is done!
So, I stood in the middle of a fairly busy street to take these. I must have waited about 10 minutes for a clear break in traffic. You do what you gotta do to get the shot, right? In retrospect, I should have angled the camera a little so it looked like he was going downhill. That was a fail on my part. Eh, what are you going to do?
