  • Grave Digger will be at Monster Jam at Verizon Arena this weekend.

MONSTER JAM
7:30 p.m. Verizon Arena. $7-$37.

Most of the stuff I thought was cool when I was 10 seems pretty lame now. G.I. Joe, Thundercats, M.A.S.K., baseball cards, baseball ... I don't know, they just don't hold any appeal for me anymore. I guess you just outgrow some stuff.

But one thing holds me in thrall still, lo these many years later: monster trucks. That's right, Bigfoot, Black Stallion, Grave Digger (which will be at Monster Jam this weekend) and their colleagues are all still every bit as killer-rad now as they were in 1988.

Mainly, I think this is because these drivers actually get to do what we all secretly want to do, which is use a gigantic truck to demolish stuff and do massive jumps and flips and wheelies and so forth. And it's their job. How cool is that?
