Hmm how should I start this one. Jody Temple aka Fat Joe aka Joe Ski Love aka Q-Change is probably no...he is the hardest of hardcore riders left in the states. I meet JT around 2000, there was a BS contest in ATL and a big jam sesh in Athens that weekend. Let me say that weekend was like crazy, everybody was killing it, but it was JT who I was watching, I was so blown away by his switches. By 02 I finally made my move to Athens Ga, by that time JT was killing it. I often speak of him as my white twin brother from another mother, his born day is one day after mine, both of our mothers are school teachers, and our love for Jamesons, and large breast.
I don't want to bore you with my intimate tales of one of my homies, cuz I might start tearing, miss that dude. So lets get this ish started.
