This Day in Pop Culture for May 12

Skateboarder Tony Hawk was born on May 12, 1968.

Tony Hawk is Born

Though seen as a confident sports icon, skateboarder Tony Hawk, now 46, wasn’t always as cocky. When he was really young and playing a little league game, he struck out. He became so embarrassed that he went hiding until his father found him. He turned his attention to skateboarding and by the time he was 14, he became a professional receiving nicknames like “The Birdman” for his aerial stunts. Hawk was the first skater to successfully land a 900 degree spin out of a half pipe. Years later, he is known worldwide. Hawk has three children. Riley has also become a professional skater.
