Kid Rock went to school down the street from me, where one of my frequent skating visits are, Romeo Highschool.

I'm not claiming Detroit, and neither should any other Michigan suburb dweller, but Eminem has not only grew up in Detroit but stayed all over the place in Michigan, even down the street from where I used to live. I really used to dig his music, but meh, not so much anymore.

It's tool time bitches, because Tim Allen grew up 3 cities over from me, in Birmingham Michigan, where might I add, has the best skate scene in Michigan.

There's a whole lot of people that grew up in Michigan but none that I really witnessed the come up of. Those three have the most to do with my childhood I guess.

I am always so ashamed to say this, but Ryan Sheckler grew up in my home town. I used to be friends with him when I was in 10th grade and he was in 9th. Then he got to "cool" and only hung out with kooks. His brother Shane is chill though, i hang out with him when i go back to california for visits.

nobody worth a shit ever came out of charles city, iowa. unless you count the band litterer, which nobody does.

but tom wopat (luke duke from the tv series) grew up in lodi, which is a couple miles down the road.

SD obviously.   Just wanted to say Webb looked like it was so sick.  What's the other park that's pretty OG with all the stacked ledges (I believe the first ever nose mannie nollie flip by Carrol with the Nirvana graphic??)...and its all being skated again in that new TWS And Now vid?    I always wanted to find that place while I lived in SD.

Hometown shit....

Steve "Yogi" Berra
Randy Ploesser
John Harms (former TWS photographer and pro slalomer now)
Guy Gray (Slap contributer)

AND.....

I graduated from the same highschool as Dick Cavett



And of course the other slightly famous talkshow host.  I think he was raised in Norfolk, NE, but I'm still claiming.


Then of course there's this guy who was born in Omaha:





Oh yeah as far as skaters go, Steve Berra and Danny Mayer, Kanten Russel was born here too.
