Craig Johnson's Double Knee Pads

Craig Johnson's Double Knee Pads

People really seemed to get a kick out of this old flick of Craig Johnson hucking a Texas plant we used on the Death Match flyer.

Craig Johnson, Texas plant, double-capped Rector kneepads, full helmet, plus the fact he's rocking one black and one white Converse all added up to a perfect flyer image for our upcoming Death Match event with CONS down in Texas.

Sypniewski found the flick flipping through the back issues we have posted online. Did you know we're scanning every page of every mag and posting 'em online? This article is from the January 1982 issue of Thrasher which you can read in its entirety right here.

Jake liked this flick of Craig hucking a boneless from the Independent book too, but the Texas plant won out in the end.
