How to Buy X Games Tickets Online
Tickets for the August 2004 Summer X Games in Los Angeles
went on sale at 12 noon on June 17, 2004 and they are available online
through Ticketmaster. Ticket prices range from $5 to $15.
I recommend purchasing your tickets now, and buying the best
tickets you can afford, because some viewing locations are
not that great, especially for the half pipe events

Meet Me at the Los Angeles X Games!
The 10th annual EXPN Summer X Games
will take place
in Los Angeles, California August 5-8, 2004.
This is great news for me because (1) I live
in Venice Beach not far from the X Games venue, and (2) that date
does not conflict with the early September
Speed Worlds in
Italy which I am also hoping to attend.
I will be in the press area at all of
the Staples Center events, which includes the
skateboarding and inline skating competitions and some of the
Moto X and stunt bike events.
