The Magic Disc

The other night I was sitting at a picnic table in the parking lot a block from Kira's dojo/gym putting masks on discs, and then she had an hour between classes so we spent some time playing playing putter catch. And then it was too dark to work on discs anymore, but it occured to me that on the driving range I could see all the balls in the dark so I could probably throw a white disc out there and have no trouble finding it.

I went out to the football field to throw 150 plastic back to Diana and Kira, as well as some mid 160 stuff. Diana throws about 210 feet with good throws going 240. Kira throws about 240 with good throws going about 270.

Hating on the Pros

Some people say Bruce Brakel hates the pros. I really don't. Hate gives me an acid stomach. I cannot spend much time hating anything or I pay for it all the way through the digestive process. There are a lot of pros I know and like, in no particular order other than alphabetical, including, Brett Comincioli, Mark Ellis, Kirk Haggadone, Al Schack, Barrett White, even if i might misspell or mispronounce their names.

I don't have any hate for the pros. I also don't have any money for… Continue
