Re: The Fast and the Furious: Operation El Kemino, Tokyo Edi

Dan has been commanding me for weeks to update this. Haven't had a ton of motivation since the beginning of the year, but I'm playing here and there. Went to PSU a couple weeks ago which was fun. Got out on request by beating myself (I picked a bad combo), which bummed me out, but I had a lot of fun...

Re: The Fast and the Furious: Operation El Kemino, Tokyo Edi

Nice summing up. It's interesting to see the role that the sport plays in our lives over such a prolonged period. Where do you take your initial date from? First kicking, first Lavers? something else. I was doing mirages and various other "made-up" tricks in 2005, but I was refusing to use any kind...

Re: The Fast and the Furious: Operation El Kemino, Tokyo Edi

Today is my 10 year anniversary in footbag. The past few February 16ths I had attempted to write a big retrospective of my time with this sport, what it has all meant to me, and how it has changed me as a person. I never made it very far on those, and I'm not interested in doing that this year, beca...

Re: The Fast and the Furious: Operation El Kemino, Tokyo Edi

Still playing fairly often, but have been taking it back to basics. Doing marathon tiltless to warm up/down with Dan and practicing basic stuff. I did my first brocka mod in like 8 years a couple nights ago but the knife slipped and cut into the stitch =/ I may have fucked my shoes up, but I'm not 1...

Re: Dan's Footblog: In Search of the Rare Dankasaurus Rex

Dan missed the most important part of the session: I did a Symp Whirling Swirl with his wallet, handed it back to him and said "Yo, that was money"

Re: The Fast and the Furious: Operation El Kemino, Tokyo Edi

Eat your GD cookie.

I'm alive and playing. Nothing super of note lately, definitely slowed down towards the end of the year, but I feel like I'm back to practicing well the past week. Got this challenge from Ken recently:

Re: The Fast and the Furious: Operation El Kemino, Tokyo Edi

Played with Dan for 2.5 hours today. My body's still remembering how to deal with the stress of footbag coming back from vacation, but we're getting there.

Re: The Fast and the Furious: Operation El Kemino, Tokyo Edi

Had a really fun 3 - 3.5 hour session. An hour of which was on video with Ivan who was giving me drills. The goal of today was to work Atomics, and I'm not sure that I made that much progress, but I got some cool stuff at least. Atomsmasher x19 Atomsmasher>Atomic Legover>Tap>Tapping Legover rpt Reac...

Re: The Fast and the Furious: Operation El Kemino, Tokyo Edi

2.5 hour session with Dan yesterday. Probably the latest in the year I've ever played outside, so that's pretty cool!

Re: The Fast and the Furious: Operation El Kemino, Tokyo Edi

Haven't had much time to play lately except for sessions with Dan. I was so exhausted yesterday from early work and staying up late the night before making my work Halloween costume so session was just OK. Managed some good strings despite having no energy.

Re: The Fast and the Furious: Operation El Kemino, Tokyo Edi

Had a session with Dan on Sunday (because we like torturing our bodies). I don't remember anything in particular, but we both played well and I had plenty of good/long strings. Played last night (still managing to play outside, even if the last 30 minutes is in the dark). My double downs have been f...

Re: The Fast and the Furious: Operation El Kemino, Tokyo Edi

Dan and I played for 3.25 hours and it was hands down the best session I've had in my entire career. I didn't hit the hardest links I've ever hit in my life, but everything felt so fucking good. Excellent long runs all over the place, great control, creativity. Ugh. Hopefully this is here to stay. S...

Re: The Fast and the Furious: Operation El Kemino, Tokyo Edi

3.5 hour session with Dan yesterday. It was probably the last nice day of the year out and the weather was perfect. I was playing with my shirt off and people were walking by in winter coats. What a bunch of weirdos. I've been feeling weirdly creative today, playing around with more rakes + gyro toe...
