Dre Day (and Everybody’s Celebratin’)
Like pretty much every post this time of year, this has absolutely nothing to do with wakeboarding, but it needs to be said. As most anybody with half a brain knows, when it comes to hip hop, the East Coast is superior in virtually every way (sorry, Stephanie). However, despite my allegiance to the right coast, I’m also quick to acknowledge our western counterpart and what they’ve brought to the table over the years. With that in mind, I’d like to wish a very happy birthday to a producer who can rap and control the maestro: Dr. Dre.
This guy has got it all figured out: he’s turning 46 years old and his day probably consists of nothing but making baller ass headphones and slingin’ Dr. Pepper, taking it easy while everyone else in the world is on the edge of their seats wondering if this is the year that Detox will actually come out. I also just realized that The Chronic came out nearly 20 years ago. Jesus, I feel old.
Anyway, happy birthday, Doc.

In other news, it’s 70 degrees in Wilmington today and Nick and Mark have been riding once a week for the past several weeks. It’s about that time people…
