Looking ahead at 2011: This new year will be  very special for me and footbag. I will be celebrating 30 years of playing footbag! There may be a whole bunch of young punks out there that can make me look like I’ve got broken legs, but there’s some weird old dude, who’s not wearing a shirt, challenging all those young punks to keep at it for another 20-25 years. 
My 2011 footbag goal will be to play at least 60 hours of footbag. My 2010 goal was 60, but I did 71. However, I think I got a little bit lucky, and all those times I pushed my sessions past 2 hours added up. Also, I plan to keep up my footbag blog. I’ve been at it for over 2 years now, and have about 70 footbag videos posted. My long-term goal with my footbag blog is to get at least 5 years of documentation. 5 years of footbag as I near, and cross, the 50-year-old barrier. 
Best wishes, best of luck, best of shred, best of everything… Here’s wishing you all a wonderful and prosperous 2011!
