Skateboard Tetris: First Sport of the Highly Unofficial Video X Games

Towering above San Francisco, glowing Tetris pieces gently fall into place like just as they were fated since birth. But at the street level level, skateboard Tetris is a different, more intense experience.

The skaters spin through nearly pitch black streets, donning glowing wireframe Tetris blocks for a hats. And then, at the last moment, they need to negotiate just how they'll fit with all those other Tetris block heads on wheels.
