Ha! Skateboarding legend Tony Hawk put it all on the line at the 2016 Kids Choice Sports Awards, playing a crusher game of Human Bowling against a young competitor. But he came up totally short and got slimed like LeBron James for losing! Keep reading for all the exciting details.
You gotta love Tony Hawk, 48, as not only is he a total superstar in the world of skateboarding, he’s an all around fun-loving guy. So naturally, he was up for a fun game at the Kids’ Choice Sports Awards where he squared off against a young skater in a game called ‘Human Bowling.’ Now, this is something that only an athlete, who is a kid at heart, could even attempt, so Tony was the perfect person for it, but the punishment for losing was a massive sliming.
‘Human Bowling’ pitted Tony and talented kid Jagger Eaton in an event called Slime Ball. Seattle Seahawks quarterback and show host Russell Wilson, 27, gave the big introduction that the pair would skateboard throughout the audience in a race that led them to dive into giant inflatable bowling balls filled with slime. The balls then rolled down an epic 65 foot ramp to bowling pins waiting for them on the stage. Even though The Birdman is a tough competitor and an X Games champ many times over, he was no match for young Jagger.
Since Jagger came out on top, he ended up getting a gold medal for his amazing effort against skateboarding’s biggest name. But they both got the gift slime thanks to the giant Zorb balls. We’ve gotta give the show credit, this was definitely a hilarious and unique new way to make a star get slimed! But Tony of course loved every minute of it and took it all in stride.
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Tony’s fun game of Human Bowling? Are you surprised he lost and ended up getting slimed?
