Frosty February Footbag

Very happy to report I broke my prolonged footbag drought.  After 5 weeks of not playing I squeezed in a shred on Friday.  In a bonus, I even got to play outside, which I very much prefer even if it was a little nippy.  It had been 2 months since my last outdoor session.   I was pleasantly surprised...

I cracked the enigma code

have this fat horse as a clue, sculpted by Fernando Botero. Seriously Dan? Could you be any more obvious? OK, here's the answer for anybody too lazy to figure it out: 1. Only a lover of horses would sculpt that statue. 2. The common name "Philip" is derived from the Greek Φίλιππος (Philippos), whic...

Dry spells

Thanks for all the nice comments everybody. Sadly not much footbag to report on my end. I haven't played in over a month and I think I've only had 3 sessions over the past 3 months. It would have been only 2 if Genzu hadn't surprised me right before Christmas. The lack of playing over the past few m...

Questions for the Muffinman

It'd be cool to do a podcast with you, since you're one of the few people who started around the same time I did who still is active in the community. On an unrelated topic and just for fun, curious what your answers are for these questions: 1. What is your proudest footbag achievement? 2. What was ...

We are all unique

I was playing around with going for a unique genuine record. I'm going to aim for mid 20s. That's a great goal, especially if you can take parts of that and use it in a Shred 30. Back when I took Shred30s super seriously, I remember being surprised that bailing to a unique osis (i.e. an osis you ha...

Video magazine

Yeah, there are so many formats for footbag content that still are basically unexplored. I really liked the idea of a footbag podcast, but too many factors worked against it (ROI for the time spent was too low, required at least one other person to talk to to generate content, audience too limited, ...

Trade deadline!

The NBA trade deadline was today. As of last night, I was worried it would be a pretty dead one as there had only been one big trade, and it didn't really involve big names (Capela for Robert Covington basically). Thankfully, today produced a few more high impact ones. There was a lot of reshuffling...

Totally sick, bro!

In good news, my back feels a lot better. In bad news, I got hit pretty bad with cold/flu right around the same time my back was recovering. Had to take multiple days off from work, and Haley took on the lion's share of parenting. I need to pay her back for that. I'm still turning the corner on this...

Nice Uribe

Yeah, Uribe has an awesome style. Just little things, like how edges are hinted at but not even really drawn.

Glad to hear you are optimistic about a return to playing. I always have my fingers crossed for you.

Make these into videos

First off, great thread and great idea. I was lucky to go to NZ 3 years in a row, back when I lived in Japan. It worked out perfectly that it was summer there during my freezing winter breaks from Japanese school. Floyd was definitely the driving force for promotion and organization. For "undergroun...

LOTD

Unfortunately no shreds for me since my last post.  A week ago I threw out my back pretty badly when I carried Griffin on my shoulders at the zoo.  He's getting close to 40 pounds so I'm going to have to phase out how much/often I pick him up and carry him in my arms.  I'm pretty sad about that sinc...

First shred of the decade

Finally got in a session this month.  As I mentioned in my past couple posts, I was looking forward to this one since now I can say I've played guiltless footbag in the 1990s, 2000s, 2010s, and finally the 2020s.  My local rec center is doing a "fitness frenzy" promotion in January where you get 5 f...

Facebook/IFPA tuned in people

If anybody has any updates on Worlds 2020 location/bids, it'd be much appreciated. I worry that kind of thing will be announced on Facebook and nowhere else, and I don't want to miss the boat.

Stay safe Dan!

toxic smoke from bushfires. All pretty scary stuff. parts of Canberra were hitting over 5000, which put us ahead of parts of India and China... Every time I see images on TV or the internet of the fires, it makes me worry about you. I'm glad you and yours are safe and sound still. A guy interviewed...

Hacky 2020

Thanks for all the comments guys!  Hope your 2020s are all off to good starts.  Mine has been alright, though no footbag yet.  As I mentioned in a recent post, I'm looking forward to my next session as I will then be able to say I've played guiltless footbag in 4 separate decades.  That's probably o...
