A huge Vital MX FU goes to the parking Supervisor that I ran into yesterday at the Home Depot Center.

Pulling into a dirt lot about half a mile away from the venue, he looks at the graphics on the side of the Vital MX truck and says, "You're advertising. That'll be $1,000 to park." He's also dead serious. He can't explain exactly how I'll be advertising if I'm parked between cars...in a dirt lot...a half-mile from the venue. But my options? Pay up, or park somewhere else.

So I did what any red-blooded guy in a truck would do. Floored it, and made a u-turn. No, I didn't look back for details, though the dust cloud did seem to be fairly large.

The weird part? I then got directed to a closer lot, where I was charged $20.

By now you might be able to tell that I'm not a huge fan of the Home Depot Center.

$1,000???? That dude probably owns his own island. Burnout time agreed.

Usually you pay double for that kind of action, Cotton.

That's called a scammer trying to rob you. I'll bet you $10 he was gone 30 seconds after you did the Dukes of Hazzard number on him.

Would've made a more interesting thread if you'd paid the $1000.... THEN complained about it.


... huh, Void?

You should have peeled out the letters, "FU"

I saw the tweet. That sucks, I wonder if someone was trying to scam you?

I just talked to someone from another moto company who had the same issue.

|

8/2/2009 8:28 PM

What a joke, somebody must have came up with that awesome idea. I wonder who was behind it. Parking Company? CSUDH? XGames?

Did the guy look at all like TFS?

Yeah the price for parking sucks. Last year i parked in the main lot right next to the stadium and it cost 20 bucks.This year they were charging 40 to park in the main lot. I parked in the college parking lot which is a few blocks away and had to pay 20. Guy B was about 4 rows from me in the stadium right before the 1st moto in the motox and it looked like a security guard walked up and told him he couldnt be there to take pics and had to move. It looked like it kinda pissed gibby off. I think next year i'm going to give the Staples Center a shot. 2 years straight the Home Depot center has sucked!!

I agree, after the last few years (crappy parking, only getting to see 10 seconds of the supermoto track) I've over going to the events at the HDC. I don't know if staples would be any better, but maybe I'll give it a shot.

They were too busy probably holding a cardboard sign or scalping some really prime parking spots. Vital scoundrels.

My first ordeal with the HDC I parked in the nearby shopping center, ate dinner, and walked to the event,
then hung out all night with Bam and Friday...

Empty a bag of skittles into the toilet and then flush. It's like watching a five second long nascar race.

I won't go back after last year, parking nazi's, camera nazi's were everywhere.

Fuck the X-Games,
Fuck Home Depot Center,
Fuck the parking at HDC.
I will never go back to an event there no matter what it is.

Never been to Staples Center but Fuck that place too...

I have never been to a single X Games, but have watched every single one on T.V. and have never had a bad experience with that.

To me everything about the X Games seems really unprofessional. They pour tons of money into the ride and skate parks, but beyond that its looks like a county fair. AND I'VE ONLY WATCHED IT ON TV.

If I had ever gone I'm sure I would have either choked someone out or got choked out.
