Brandon Novak And Steve-O Provide A Very Real Update On The Current State Of Bam Margera

(41:56 - 47:05 for the update)

If you didn't watch, the long and short of it is that Bam is at a treatment facility where he recently had his phone taken away. In other words, they had a set of rules for Bam to follow and he broke them. Novak says "no news is good news", but you can tell both he and Steve-O are being very realistic about the current state of his health. It's almost as if they're talking about him like he's already dead, which I guess to a certain degree he is. Bam's not the person he used to be, he's a guy who's been completely transformed by addiction. And yes, I know he can get healthy, but if we're being honest the chances of him doing so are slim. 

In the words of Anello Lorenzo, "the saddest thing in life is wasted talent."  Some people waste it because they don't know they have it, others waste it due to circumstance. Bam knows he has it, he just needs to remember that. Anyway, it's nice to see Brandon Novak is alive and kicking. Watching him get beat up by Bam used to be one of my favorite things until I realized he was on heroin while it was happening. 

Jackass Forever is slated to come out on February 4th, 2022. Part of me doesn't even want to see it because it's kinda sad, but I know I will. It's a franchise that I grew up on and one that I'll always support regardless of the state of the cast. Well, I guess there's not much else to say on this one other than "get well soon, Bam." We're rooting for ya. Now here are a bunch of his skating highlights from back in the day. Enjoy...
