This first post is going to stay updated with Goals and other random information I want to be able to find quickly.
Hi, I'm Tony Whitney, but most of the people on the forum would recognize me as sen
A little about me: I started getting into Footbag sometime in 2002, although I have memories of playing with a Hacky Sack that date back earlier than that (a Whamo 12-panel I believe. I couldn't get past 7 consec kicks). After learning there was a sport and hundreds of tricks I was hooked. I watched Video's every chance I got and kicked during class and breaks in high school. I played fairly regularly up until grade 11 or 12. Then other interests horned in my footbag time and footbag slowly took a back seat. *NOTE: this blog was started back before an of my big breaks, while I was still in High School. I'm 22 now, and I'm rewriting this first post to give a better idea of how I got to where I am and where I am now.
As I look back on my blog I can see that footbag didn't always just fade out, but at least on one occasion I made a conscious effort to quit. What a dumb idea. It certainly didn't better my life any. I just replaced the time spend shredding with playing video games and eating junk food. Real smart...
Anyways in the 9+ years since I first learned about footbag I have probably not played for as much time as I have played. I'm trying to correct that problem now. Read on!
-Playing footbag hurts my knees too much. I'm not sure if my knees are effed up at this point, or if footbag just puts too much pressure on them. I'm over weight. My Wii calls me obese. Most of this weight is in my stomach. With this weight on the top portion of my body I can see how much stress is being put on my legs when I play. I haven't really played in... a long time. I'd have to look back at the blog to figure it out, but I know playing REGULARLY was over 3 years ago. I think I want to play again, but I have a HUGE roadblock in my way to get there.ONGOING GOALS SECTION:Will continue to update this section with new goals as I progress.Footbag Goals
