Joey met Mike Vallely at age 7. Mike named Joey the MVP at the Playstation contest in Philly for capturing what Mike believed was the true spirit of the skateboarding that he loved. Being only 7, Mike had to explain to Joey what MVP meant and that moment was captured below. Mike told Joey to have fun and skate pure. Joey emailed Mike ten years later and Mike remembered him. . . . .
