Off-Topic Tuesday: Parkour

No Skateboards. No Skates. No Helmets.Have you seen this stuff yet? If you live in "the big city," odds are that you have. And if you have access to a television, you probably saw that Nike commercial. While the popularity of Parkour only began in recent years, and is attributed to Sebastien Foucan, I swear that my boys back in Michigan were doing this kind of stuff in the mid-to-late-90s. We just called it "Freestyle Walking" (for real). Oh, and we weren't doing anything nearly as intense as this or these. If you see somebody that knows what they're doing, it's pretty amazing to watch. Although I must admit that it probably isn't cool anymore since I saw some 15-year-old wannabe tree-huggers busting it out in Arlington, VA. Ugh. Parkour: Over before it even got started?

I think that this "sport" is becoming more and more popular between teenagers and I also heard that there is a huge increase in the amount of injuries in teenagers LOL
