That's right! I've been playing every day, for about an hour or more, for the past six years! Tomorrow is my 46th birthday, and I started playing everyday when I turned 40.
A lot has happened in the past year. This is my 'Year in Review', year six. 2012
This year I've published 68 videos to YouTube (that's a new video every 5-6 days), mostly documenting the random tricks I came up with. Some of them were new, some of them are just the first time I've done them. Most of them were filmed on my iPhone, and edited completely on the iPhone as well. Most of them were filmed and edited entirely on the iPhone, as my computer has been broken for most of the year. You can view them at: http://www.youtube.com/user/footbagenlightener
I've played as far north as Petosky MI at the lighthouse, But mostly I stayed around the Chicago area. I try to play in exotic places like beachfront, festivals, rooftops and the like, But mostly I play in my living room, parking lots and back hallways.
Not only do I play footbag every day, but I try to ride my Xootr scooter As much as possible to him from work, I stand all day at work and I'm a vegetarian. So with all that going for me, statistically I should be more healthy. Less likely to get heart disease, cancers and other diseases related to obesity and poor diet. So I got that going for me. And I do feel great!
I started the year with a badly stubbed toe, and I just did it again. Had to modify another pair of shoes, actually just the right shoe this time. See the picture attached. I've got to be more careful walking around my house in the dark.
I look forward to next year, where I plan to get a new computer and make better quality videos, with more of an instructive overtone to them. Tomorrow is the first shred of my seventh year playing every day in a row, and I hope to keep this up the rest of my life!
