During this, one ESPN official laughed as he told the story of City Hall security screaming at them the day before for drilling a contest handrail into the plaza’s granite steps and slabs — the same ones that skateboarders are infamous for "destroying" downtown.

Skateboarding is one of the activities, primarily of the young, that ESPN and Comcast and the city has invested in "branding." Maybe it’s not producing like so many other things to do in the city that reduce it to some level of commerce.
