How I met your uncle

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

I break down the beginning story on How my Uncle

Hey guys, welcome to tensions with Tobe. What is going on? Today's episode? I'M gonna be answering a question, a huge question, the question that has been baffling people for many years, and that question is uncle, how did you meet Himan? So today, today's episode, is how I met your uncle Wyman. Alright, so, back in the day in grade five, I was always hanging out with Pete and Dan, you know sometimes Terry, who all motorviate, like Motocross, and we'd got up to the track. I'd watch them. They raced back and forth. They do their own thing. That was fine. The one summer going from grade five to grade six, I was over at dance place. We were playing Brinintendo.

All of a sudden Pete marges and he goes. Man, guess what, I found this one kid. This one kid, he has a whole entire motorbike track in his yard. We gotta go try it. I know where he is. He says anytime that we want we can hop over. He's usually out there doing stuff. We gotta go, we gotta go. Dan Goes, all right, let's let's go. Let's just load her pikes up with gas and let's head out. So pizzas. Yeah, let's go do it. So Pete went. I helped Dan with his bike, Pete came over, they take off. Of course I didn't have a bike, so I stayed back. The next day showed up over at dance place after he phoned me to tell me to come over, and he was basically saying that he was more shocked that it wasn't bigger jumps and bigger burns and things like that. It was just basically a little track that they put bails down, put dirt on top and that was it. So he was kind of making...

...fun of it, saying it's pitiful, there was no challenge to it and it was way too easy. It's like Oh, okay, and he goes, yeah, that kid and his brother, they I think that they're good, but pound for pound we could destroy him. Not a problem, okay, whatever. So Dad and I started playing video games again. You don't hear a knock at the door, peep bots open. He goes, man, let's go back out of that track. Dance like sure, let's go. Meanwhile there's me thinking, wait a second, and you just bash this check, but yet you want to go back whatever. So Pete and Dan hopped on the bikes took off. I went home. A couple of days later pete knocks at my door and he goes, yeah, man, what didn't it interesting the day a few days ago? Why? Well, you see, we're on there. I was getting the feel of everything. I was going fast. I was going faster and faster. Make that trick track...

...mine. The kid and his brother they were absolutely needs what I was doing. Dan, he was having a little bit issues, so he decided that he was going to go racing the the kid's Dad's field and kind of tore up a little bit of grass. Kids Dad comes barreling out of the House and Jeff starts freaking on him. What are you doing driving on our grass? You're tearing it up. We'll stay on their track. Don't, don't go on the fields. And and Jess absolutely chewed one with Dan. You know, next to you know, Dan disappeared. It's like, where is he? I don't know. He said that he went home and he kind of did his own thing and for the rest of the summer we couldn't find that no matter what. Then about a week before school started, but then we realized Dan went for a family vacation down to the states. So that's where he was. Grade six, they always talked about it. They wanted...

...to head out back there, and Dan it's like, no, I don't want to, I'm scared of the Dad. Let's just let's just stay away from this. So he goes fine, we'll just stick with the main the main track, all right, whatever. You guys do your you do, you, just plain and simple, you do. You. Grade Seven, same thing I was, but this time in grade seven. They never talked about the track, but there was me wondering whatever happened to these two kids, because pizz said that the older one should have been in the grade above and the younger brothers should have been in are great and I just couldn't find him. I couldn't figure out who it is. Anything like that. Nobody else really talked about across. Nobody hung out with us, never got to see it. Whatever. Another year goes by, Grade Eight, I'm sitting at my desk and Mrs Roses Class and all of a sudden I hear the...

...name. It clicked, my eyes got bigger, I turned around, looked down at you and to Motocross, he goes. Yeah, do you have a track? At your far goes, yeah, it's like, Oh my God, do you know Pete? And Dad goes, yeah, it's like you're him, the man, the myth, the legend, you're there. He goes why? So basically I explained who I was, what I did, my connections with Dan and Pete, etcetera, etcetera. And ever since that day grade eight in Mrs Roses Class, Poiman and I have been uncles for the longest. We've done fun stuff, dumb things. You've heard it onto the podcast of some of the things that we've done. It's just has been one of those crazy times where, yeah, an event happened before we...

...met and when we met we've been slim me Cape Friends. I can open up to hyman about anything and everything and he will be there, he will listen. My phones are always on for when I had the flood in twenty eleven, him and his wife gave me a hundred dollars to help reef start rebuilding and you know, it's just one of those awesome things. Hyman has been that friend that I could basically lean on, jump on his back to carry me through the mud, Um run me over while mountain biking. You just it has been. One of those things that I will never ever denies is she's just been one of the best friends that I've ever had, which is plain and simple. Anyway, Himan will or that's a wilder Unclehi Aman,...
