2016 X Games in Austin with AT&T

This blog post was sponsored by AT&T but the opinions are completely our own based on our experience.
This past weekend, we had a once in a lifetime experience at the X Games. Neither of us can stand on a skateboard, let alone do any tricks, but we have always watched the X Games on TV and wished we could be a part of the fun. The adrenaline starts pumping when you watch on TV, all the flips, tricks and jumps really seem to defy gravity. We got a new AT&T GoPhone and decided to take it with us for the day to test out how well it works, before we set off on our next travel adventure with it. We decided on GoPhone because we wanted the flexibility to choose a plan that fits our needs and change our plan whenever we want. Plus, we upgraded from our old device to a sweet Samsung. So if you end up switching, GoPhone is compatible with most phones, including iPhones! 

X Games Austin AT&T

So on Saturday we left home ready for some excitement. Before the first event, we stopped by the AT&T GoPhone booth to score some free sunglasses, t-shirts, and to try out their virtual reality game.

The X Games were even MORE amazing in person than we ever imagined. The action, the sounds, the energy was in the air. Being close to the competitors and getting to go in the VIP section was so incredible. Some of these guys and girls are so young and talented! The ramps and jumps you see on TV are 100 times bigger in real life. Have you ever thought to yourself, Hey I could do that? Trust us, it’s MUCH scarier and takes a lot more talent when you see it in person! 

Having our AT&T GoPhone at the X games let us get out this summer and have some fun (motocross lessons anyone?). We focused on making memories and living in the moment instead of worrying about our bill and data overages.  Follow AT&T GoPhone as they hit all of summer 2016’s best music, sports and family-friendly festivals to raise awareness of AT&T’s prepaid wireless service, GoPhone.

  1. You are absolutely correct! HD television has made things so incredible to view. However, it just doesn’t give someone that real sense of scale. My two sons were on a fairly large half pipe at ages 10 and 11. I remember pushing them to not be afraid and try it. When I went up on the top deck to try and talk them into going for it, I looked down and shut up immediately. It was straight down, for what seemed like forever! This half pipe wasn’t not even half the size of the X games ramps. What these competitors do is truly death defying and amazing.

  2. What a great experience to see the X Games!! Those are some incredible athletes and very cool to see them do what they do in real life!

  3. I love that you can go ahead and do all these and still be safe. I’m a Mom so my main concern is always about safety.

  4. I’ve never seen the X-Games live! That’s was a lot of fun for sure. I like that you were able to grab some good deals on phones as well, that’s very rare!

  5. I really wanted to go this year and see Blink 182 but couldn’t pull it off. I did get the chance to watch the pros practice a few days before the X Games started. I am beyond amazed by these athletes. They have such courage!

  6. My daughter’s phone could use an upgrade, I shared this post , link to my tweet twitter.com/neiddy_ruiz/status/743413199958118400
    thank you for the chance to win!

  7. What a fun experience! I can’t stand on a skateboard either, so it’s neat to see others that can do those amazing tricks. And those gophones are great since there isn’t any contract.

  8. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near
    future but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  9. Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to browse your blog on my iphone
    during lunch break. I love the knowledge you provide
    here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
    I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my phone
    .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, fantastic site!
