If there was a half-submerged board in this one I reckon I could've at least won a gift certificate to Shakey's or some shit. This was the day Div almost melted.

    Burnout: Death Match NYC
    The two-day tornado of rock, rap and radical known as the Thrasher Death Match whipped into the Big Apple recently with brain-scrambling maneuvers sharing space with hellacious pits – plus all the ferocity that names like Omar Hassan, The Gza, Kader Sylla, Gorilla Biscuits, Roman Pabich, Roc Marciano and Pedro Delfino conjure up.
