WASHINGTON – Hey, kids, don't try this at home. Professional skateboarder Tony Hawk on Friday took a brief ride at the White House as part of a Father's Day celebration.
Hawk, 41, skated in the grand foyer and the nearby Old Executive Office Building, with the permission of White House officials.
The skateboarding icon, also known for his popular brand of skateboarding video games, posted photos to his Web site and Twitter page.
Who in their right mind would grant permission to allow SKATEBOARDING, of all things, in the halls of the White House? I don't CARE who Tony Hawk is. I really don't give a flip how cool or rad he or anyone thinks they are! Would you allow anyone to skateboard in YOUR house?
