after watching Matt go through the pain, suffering and frustration that goes with it, I can tell you that

“I hurt my knee in Texas while practicing for the WWA Triple VIDEO

Crown stop. I was determined that I wasn’t going to let that

ruin my fun. This shot reminds me of one bum knee and one hell of a good time! The whole CTRL team was out there killing it, so I put on my big-girl panties, grabbed my deck and went kosher ham on some rails. Mazel!” —Marc Shuster
