We asked Pickard to pick a winner for us, and though it might not be congruent with some other picks we've made on our bracket, this is his little segment and Picky's allowed to pick whoever Picky picks...pick. And that's not to say he made a bad choice by any means, though based on many of the submitted brackets that I've seen, there is a clear favorite in our scene and he's the favorite for a very good reason (it's Dana). So with that said, I'll let Pickard get to picking and regardless of who wins or loses, who actually cares, this is one of the best events in the city and is always a great way to bring everyone together. So congratulations and good luck to all those skating in the event and a special thank you to Orchard, Pabst, and Converse for making this an annual thing. See you all tomorrow! -SMLTalk Staff
With Battle at the Barrics just one day away, one question is on everybody's mind: Who will take the title this year? With an event like BATB it really could be any of the 16 competitors...well probably not myself. Have you seen these other dudes skate? I'm fucked! Regardless, the fine gentlemen at SMLTalk have asked me to choose a BATB champion, and I have to say, I'm team #BabyDave all day!
