    Default Kid Beats Back Attacking Dogs With VH Skateboard

    Some 11 year old kid came to his mom's rescue when she was being mauled by a pair of pitbulls. He smacked the dogs with a VH striped skateboard and can be partially seen in the news clip:

    I heard this was a promotional stunt. Janie arranged the pitbull attack and everything.

    Eddie Van Halen - when he's not curing cancer, he's helping saving the lives of kids from vicious animals. What a guy.

    Well since we are throwing obscure VH references out there, here is one which I didn't feel deserved it's own thread. Was watching the Comedy Central documentary "Six Days to South Park" where they show behind the scenes of what happens for an episode. Anyway they were talking to the shows creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone about who does what. Matt said Trey is pretty much the director and without him, the show probably wouldn't have made it. When Trey is asked how he feels about that he said something to the effect of "Well Eddie Van Halen writes music and he can write with anybody. It's still Eddie Van Halen but when David Lee Roth leaves, it's not Van Halen."

    Not trying to make it a Sammy vs Dave issue cause that has been done before. Most here love both eras. I just thought it was interesting to hear some relevant people mention VH regardless of what they said.

    Now back to the Skateboard. I hope it had 5 ply binding and resonated with good tone when he struck the dude.

    Sounds like the original story idea for the "Pretty Woman" video.

    It's tough for a young kid like that to have that much courage to do something like that. Good for him. The deck is pretty cool too.

    Also... Any word if the tone produced by the dogs' skulls being pummeled with that particular board was described as being "very earthy, and warm-sounding - like a brown sound?"
