Tony Hawk Goes Smithsonian! First Board Enshrined In Famous Museum!

Filed under: ZportzInspirationTony Hawk

tony hawk first skateboard smithsonian museum enshrined legend sport

Tony Hawk is arguably the most famous skateboarder to have ever lived — his name is known in households that couldn't even tell you what a skateboard is! LOLz!

Now, he's being honored for being such a badass in the sport!

The deck that started it all, Tony's first ever skateboard, is finding a home in the Smithsonian! You can see a photo of it (above), because Tony just posted it!

Honestly — and we're gonna sound like Indian Jones here — we think that thing BELONGS in a museum! We're sure it's worth a fortune right now, and we're happy Tony went this route instead of just trying to make a quick buck!

The funny thing is, this will be the second Tony Hawk board in the museum! He donated one of his faves that he rode in 1987 a few years ago!

Congrats, Tony!

There's so many cutiez running around the Smithsonian National Zoo, we don't what to do!

Not only did the zoo welcome two DARLING Kori Bustard chicks to their family, they also said hello to two burrowing owl babes too!

Both groups of aDORable chicks will be making their summer debut in late August. The Kori Bustard chicks are currently being hand-reared to avoid conflict with other birds of prey.

The burrowing owl babies are little more mature but they're still pint sized compared to other birds.

Still, we wish we could take either species home to play with us!

OH if only that were true!

But who knows what political scheming went down between the Golden Girl, our Commander in Chief, and adorbsies baby Bo. In our harmonious fantasy world the trio concocted some ingenious plan to stop prejudice, hatred, greed and injustice…

Ha!

But back to real life.

The original Kermit the Frog puppet is headed for the Smithsonian!

Jim Henson's widow Jane Henson is donating the puppet, who was originally made from an old coat thrown away by Jim's mom, and 9 others to the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.

Kermit made his TV debut in 1955 appearing on a show called Sam and Friends that ran after the local news in Washington.

He's come a long way!
