Andy MacDonald is one of those polarizing people. I got a chance to watch him skate over the past week at the X Games and I have to admit that he's really not my favorite skateboarder. However, he's pretty good. When I admited this openly, one friend of mine said, "He's not a good skateboarder, he's a skateboard tricker." Another friend of mine clearly didn't like Mac Man very much, but while we watched Sheckler in his double pits to chesty commercial, he puzzled, "You know...the reason older guys like us are so confused by Sheckler and guys like that, is skaters in the 80s used to get kicked off of their teams for the most minor things. He's doing acne commercials and cheesy deodorant ads. It's hard to see why people hate Andy Mac with all this stuff. I mean, all Andy Mac did was have bad style and wack sponsors." I thought that was pretty funny. Anyway, watch him skate doubles with the Birdman. He's a verifiably good skateboard tricker. Click read more to watch the video.
