I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life. A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen. This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own. I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo. If it’s a part of events that has been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well. Hope everyone enjoys. Today’s photo is Michelangelo and I in 2009.
In 2009 I followed the TMNT cross country tour, volunteering at the different stops. One of the stops was a mall in California where Michaelangelo got to do something really cool. He had a skateboard to ride around, which he did enjoy. At this point the bus had TMNT Smash up as their game on the side for people to play. I know I played against a few different TMNT fans that day, and I had some dumb luck. I’m really not the best with video games.
In this photo, I’m sitting down holding my Combat Coldcuts joking with Michaelangelo. Seems I said something that got him to laugh, from the pose in this picture. I do not remember the conversation, but the smile shows that it was good times. The Combat Coldcuts in my hand are real movie props from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II. I would bring props and original art to share with fellow TMNT fans at each of the stops.
Did you go to any stops on the 2009 TMNT Tour? If so, which stops did you make it too? Please share memories, comments and questions below.
