Last Fan Standing

Nice work Ken!  Not too bad advancing in shred off, routines and sick 3!   Thanks Gray!  It's a weird year where not many players are competing in all 4 events.  Vasek is only doing routines.  Honza and Cerny are skipping Shred Off.  Rafal is skipping routines.  I think Worek, Taishi, and Pawel are...

Re: World's 2020

Interesting thoughts Mathieu. Here are some possible highlights I forsee: the women routine top 3 will be quite difficult possibly, battle between Tina who did not play for 1 year, Paloma who has been a strong force while Tina's absence, and the emerging Tina Lau  Do we know with certainty that Tina...

Dizzying Worlds Developments

Hell yes, TPP Erik!  I'm embarrassed to admit I don't think I know that artist.  I must be losing my fastball.  It reminds me of Uribe but I don't think it is.  Gorgeous oil work regardless.  Also props to TJ for posting like 3 TPPs in the span of a day.  I love this tradition. I feel like Worlds ar...

We have a winner!

Just ensuring nobody somehow misses this gem:



The difficulty may not be there yet, but already this dude's choreography is at the top. Watch out if he gets to the point of adding 1-2 adds to everything. 8O

Weird Worlds Day

Happy to report I got in a shred today. I felt a bit unfocused though, since the session felt like it was landing on the weirdest day in this whole Worlds 2020 stretch. The code word for Routine finals, Sick 3 finals, and the 3rd round of Shred Off has been released, and of course the code word for ...

Hamstring feels good!

judging of routines will happen this sunday to ensure finalists are informed ASAP. That's total fucking bullshit!  The identities of the judges was JUST posted in the last day.  How the fuck are my gift baskets supposed to reach them before they submit their results?   :evil:   :x In more positive ...

Shred offs already visible

Got a decent routine on film so at the very least I can submit that and if I don't make it through then I don't make it through. At least I have SOMETHING to submit. That is a great feeling. Props on banking a routine. I feel the same way about the results. Like, regardless of whether we make final...

Competing in a Pandemic

Did not manage routine easy mode dropless, Took about 30-45 minutes to adapt and feel it, then it was SUPER FUCKING WINDY!, DAMN YOU WIND MAKING ME DROP at 1MIN30 ALL THE TIME! I feel your pain. The variables in the outside playing environment are so hard to predict, and you really feel them when y...

Fortnite?!?

one thing that gives you the one-up this year is the nasty taste in your mouth from 2017. I think it's great you are able to wash it out now. It's a great motivator for sure but I'm also not celebrating anything yet.  It's still entirely possible I don't make routine finals, or something happens th...

He just got moved to hospital, it sucks so close to deadline 8O Yikes, I hope he's OK. This was on my mind throughout the registration process; the hope that people weren't registering due to interest, and not due to health or pandemic-related circumstances. Fingers crossed. On the topic of this ro...

Routine Pool Thoughts

The other big footbag worlds development that I didn't discuss in my last entry, was that Routine Pools were posted a couple days ago. 2 things jumped out at me immediately: 1. All told, they did a pretty good job!  As I've detailed in my blog and elsewhere on modified, seeding this year was going t...

Shred Off and Shred30 Thoughts

Hey Ken, I'd thought I'd leave this here as I know you're not on Facebook (me neither): Hey Matthias! Thanks for the heads up and thanks for saying "hey." That is the one thing I miss about Facebook, the random notes and interactions with other footbaggers. Still, I'm glad I left the site. There've...

Nice Shoes!

The reverse terrage stood out to me more than anything. The motion trick was great too. What kind of shoes are you playing in? They don't look like Lavers.

Looking forward to your next round Shred Off!

"Top Two Advance to Finals"

https://i.imgur.com/ogOwFHd.jpg https://i.imgur.com/njg8v9r.jpg If I'm reading this right, Intermediate Routine Finals will feature 6 players...while Open Routine Finals will only be 2 players. Just wow. I knew cuts would be brutal this year since there's no semifinals round, but still: https://thu...

Reeeeeemix

it would always depend on whether the judges have seen and remember the original routine. This stood out to me as a key point. With popular music it's usually pretty obvious what they are sampling, either because the sample is so well-known or because they credit it in the title. But with a super e...

Routine Seeding Thoughts

Registration closes in a few hours for Worlds.  I have to say, I am thrilled by both the quantity AND the quality of competitors that have registered.  Even if nobody else registers before the deadline, we're looking at 38-43 competitors in each event.  That's one of the better turnouts I can recall...

Landes or Simku for Shred30

I talked to Vasek and confirmed only routines I see a lot of people who are registering for some but not all events.  I totally get it, and I've done the same in past years myself.  In some years I had placed a lot of importance in a singular goal (e.g. dropless at Worlds, win a major, etc.)  so it...
