Ok, ok, ich habe bei der Überschrift etwas geflunkert. Tony Hawk istlaut Angaben des Forbes Magazine nicht der einflussreichste Athlet. Der Birdman kommt in der Kategorie "nur" auf den dritten Platz. Vor Hawk sind nur Tiger Woods und Lance Armstrong. Wobei, Colts Quarterback Payton Manning nur auf Platz vier, hinter Hawk? Wird Zeit das die Colts wieder in den Superbowl einziehen. Link
Ob Hawks neuster Geldesel eine Rolle bei der Forbes Liste gespielt hat? In den USA kommt in Kürze die "Tony Hawk Huckjam Gummies" auf den Markt. Dabei handelt es sich nicht um Süßigkeiten, sondern um Vitamine. Damit die Kids darauf total abfahren, sehen die Vitamine wie Skateboards, Rollen und Totenköpfe aus (siehe Bild) .
