Post first identified for Super Fun Days Out, a company for which I am the Social Media Strategist. I’ve been a bit distracted from it over the past few months, which doesn’t really work for social media, so yesterday I spent some time, getting a few things shipshape again for it. Meantime, the others on the team have done great amounts of work, developing great packages, signing up more companies, and starting to identify some great hot deals! Join us on Twitter, and let us know if you have a story to tell us re: adrenalin/extreme sports, as we’d love more blog entries like this one: Desert Ultra-Marathon: Red Hot Chile Runners

A Hungarian Catholic priest who spreads God’s word from a skateboard has become an internet sensation

“A video of the Reverend Zoltan Lendvai, 45, in action has attracted almost 170,000 hits on YouTube.

The video, Funny Priest Skateboarding, shows Rev Lendvai, clad in full clerical garb, displaying his moves.

It is not clear whether the reverend has mastered the nose-grind or the kick-flip, but his skills have helped attract young people to his church.

Rev Lendvai, whose first board bore the papal coat of arms, believes skateboarding can pave the way to God for young people.

He says his distinctive method of spreading the word on wheels is inspired by Saint John Bosco. The 19th century Italian priest and teacher dedicated his life to improving the lot of poor young people, using games as part of their education.”
