Paul Rodriguez began skateboarding when we was in seventh grade, and he's quickly become one of the best skateboarders in the world.
Rodriquez, better known as "P-Rod," along with many other of the top skateboarders and bicycle athletes, will show off their skills this weekend as the Dew Tour returns to Chicago.
The event will take place on Saturday and Sunday at the Grant Park Skate Plaza, and P-Rod joined CSN's David Kaplan on SportsTalk Live to discuss what to expect this weekend, and how he got into skateboarding in the first place.
Check out the interview in the video above. For more information on the Dew Tour, visit their website here.
After getting released by the Bears on Aug. 18, kicker Elliott Fry has a new gig.
Sunday, the Baltimore Ravens announced that they've signed Fry.
The signing is a rather curious one for the Ravens, as incumbent kicker Justin Tucker is one of the best in the NFL. The Ravens may have just signed Fry for the remainder of the preseason, as they don't want to risk Tucker getting hurt before the regular season begins.
Fry went 1-for-2 on field goals in the preseason with the Bears (hitting from 43, missing from 47) while hitting both of the his extra point attempts. Although releasing Fry left Eddy Pineiro as the lone kicker on the Bears roster, the latter hasn't won the job just yet.
Pineiro did convert on a 58-yard try in Saturday's game against the Colts, perhaps moving him one step closer to locking the job down.

David Bote's minor league stint didn't last long.
After demoting the 26-year-old to Triple-A Iowa on Monday, the Cubs recalled Bote on Sunday. In a corresponding move, the team placed Derek Holland (left wrist contusion) on the 10-day injured list.
Bote's return comes on the heels of Anthony Rizzo exiting Saturday's game due to mid-back tightness. Rizzo has dealt with back issues at various points in his career, missing four games in May this season with a similar ailment.
The Cubs activated Steve Cishek off the injured list Tuesday, with the reliever filling Bote's vacancy on the 25-man roster. Thus, the Cubs had been playing with 14 pitchers and 11 position players for much of this week. Had they not recalled Bote, they Cubs would've had to play Sunday's game with just Victor Caratini and Tony Kemp available off the bench.
A similar situation occurred Saturday, as Rizzo exited the game in the bottom of the fifth inning. To save the Cubs from running out of position players, reliever Kyle Ryan took his at-bat in the sixth inning. Although he drew a walk, Ryan was thrown out attempting to take third base on a pitch that got away from Nationals catcher Yan Gomes.
Holland was hit by a comebacker in Tuesday's game against the Giants. Him landing on the injured list leaves Ryan as the lone lefty in the Cubs bullpen. The former holds a 5.74 ERA this season in 43 overall games between the Cubs and Giants, though that number is a more respectable 4.66 in 12 appearances with the Cubs.
Bote is hitting .257/.352/.429 with 10 home runs and 40 RBIs in 106 games (268 at-bats) this season.
