BortyIdk that anyone cares but I posted some of my thoughts here if anyone wants to read them.
I still can't believe this is real.
Very well written. I can relate, I remember back when he was with DC shoes and they did a series of day in the life type videos with a bunch of BMXers, including Dave and Corey something (can't remember his last name). I remember watching Dave's over and over and over again on my iPod touch and thinking it was awesome because he went to this outdoor skatepark in Syracuse... And just sitting there begging my parents to take me and my friend there just to be able to say I rode the same park is Dave mirra. As the years went on I've gotten away from BMX a lot, but still can appreciate it, and still remember watching some of the crazy shit Dave used to do. This is one of the first athlete deaths that has really hit me hard, simply because this is the first time I've seen it happen to an athlete that I grew up watching.
So sad to see one of the greats go, and it really shows how serious depression is... Like you said, even though you see someone and see them as happy and having it all, you don't know what's truly happening underneath all that
