Funny segment comparing Seattle and Denver. If you want to skip to the footbag cameo, it's at the 2:00 mark:

I think that was our 7th or 8th take. Mo messed up one take when he stumbled over words, I messed up a couple takes by missing the final trick, and Mo messed up at least 2 takes when his pass was off. We actually nailed the very first take, they thought my run was too many contacts. Gory detail in my blog.

I yelled at my computer at the end of your string: "WHOA! KEN, YOU'RE COOL!" lol

But really, THAT made "Hacky Sack" look so bad ass. Great job!

I thought it was going to be a hack circle, not mr somolinos himself!

Thanks for the kind words everybody. It was a fun experience, and I'm happy with how it turned out. It'd be sweet though if we could get national level media attention for a dedicated segment...like coverage of USO or Worlds for example. Even if its only 5 minutes, that sometimes can be enough to motivate a kid to google the word "footbag."

Haha yes. Great work ken :) finally some good public exposure of our sport. If only he'd called it footbag... still, I started out just "hacking" and that turned into freestyle over time, so maybe our numbers will grow because of that segment. Nicely done.
