To make ourselves laugh, and to give you a distraction from your family holiday Zoom call, we took the piss out year-end lists and decided to goof on a few friends and skaters for this year’s superlatives.
We thought long and hard about who to shame, celebrate, and reprimand, and we just hope we didn’t leave anyone out.
You might not agree or maybe even understand some of these awards, but as long as you get a laugh and prepare for another embarrassing year, then we’ve done our job! And don’t forget, if you’re mentioned on this list and you find yourself getting really angry, you might be taking this whole thing too seriously.
