Todd Congelliere #2.

My boards never looked cool compared to what the pros rode. I never had the skinny rails or the World Industries Bedpan risers. I still want a set of those things. That bear is awesome.

The high point of Todd's career in terms of contests was when he got 5th at the NSA Norfolk Pro Vert contest in the fall of 1990.* Tony Hawk won, Jeff Kendall got second, Omar Hassan was in third and Chris Miller placed fourth.

* As far as I can tell the contest was in late 1990 since the coverage was in early 1991. There was no date listed in the Transworld article. I don't think it would have been in 1991 since the magazines had a longer turnaround time from event to print than today.
