After buying flights to Warsaw yesterday and regis­te­ring as a non-compe­titor at this year’s worlds, I’ve been strea­ming an endless series of memo­ries related to footbag events and friends. The sport is one of the two random big things in my life without which I would be some­body else.

This picture by @etienneruggeri is my all-time favo­rite on-the-court shot, taken 2011 in Paris. WACK is what you can hear Frankie say when he loses that net battle against a guy shorter than him and so unflexible he has to round­house kick ass-first to reach the other side.
