    Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament has opened a skate park in Big Sandy, Montana. There's probably not a whole hell of a lot to do in Big Sandy, Montana, so a skate park is recreational, fun and encourages an artistic discipline. I'm not being a snarky asshole, either. Skateboarding is an art, in my opinion.

    Ament funded the $40,000 project and attended the grand opening of the park last week.

    How fucking cool is it for Jeff Ament to fund a skate park? Would you take a pilgrimage to skate there?
