    I have always loved Andy. I loved watching him bust doubles with the great Tony Hawk Himself and all, i do not know why he has not been seen for a while he was and still is a great in my honest opinion. He should come back and reign the way that he did with Tony. I want him to come back, the way that he would tear up the half pipe and the way that he would just skateboard in general. I mean he is one of the greatest skateboarders that i know of. Well 4 more wrods, and done!moreless
