I will share a few
I was at Target standing near the pizza hut waiting for my Dad, I was getting bored so I pulled out my yoyo (I think it was my old Spinmaster 3) and started casually throwing.
I was just doing some cool tricks when a guy comes up to me:
Guy: Hey you are pretty good with the yoyo!
Guy: I used to be pretty good at it once, I went to contest too.
Me: Wough really? Same here? You still yoyo?
Guy: Ah not really, I was quite good for a time, I won a contest actually.
Me: Cool! What contest?
Guy: It was the US Finals.
(So I think, US Finals? Maybe he means nats? Wough! He probably won a sport ladder or something cause I didnt know him from any past championship champions)
Me: Oh US Nationals?
Guy: Yes thats the one.
Me: Wow! So you did the sport ladder?
Guy: No I actually did the performance
Me: (Confused) Wait what year did you go?
Me: Hmmm… Whats your name?
Guy: Oh awesome you know me.
(STOP! I know this guy isnt Jason Lee. I know Jason Lee and this guy WAS NOT HIM!
This is Jason Lee:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fU_es1xJzD0
The guy looked about late 40s, Somewhat like George Lopez.
THIS GUY IS NOT JASON LEE!
Me: Wanna try my yoyo?
Guy: Naw, I dont yoyo anymore, I was once good but now I cant ever throw a yoyo
(So now I test him)
Me: Yeah Nats was awesome that year ha? Kinda hot though since it was in Las Vegas.
Guy: Yeah… everyone didnt like it
The guys family comes over.
Guy: Well I gotta go, Nice meeting you!
Me: You too, laterz.
WOW! That was amazing…
I was at a church youth group showing some guys some yoyo tricks.
This is back in 2001 and I was using my old renegade.
I was going to do an around the world to over the shoulder trapeze but the string broke!
SNAP! It flew and I am not kidding IMBEDDED ITSELF INTO THE CHURCH WALL!
Sad right? But even worse, this was not our church! We were coming from out of town and happened to see a vineyard church and went in for their sunday service.
I felt really bad but they said it was ok.
The Gade was ok, but the wall was very damaged.
My friend Brandon got a new bigyo so he wanted to make a long string for it, I told him to try to make a long one (you know for those big shoot the moons people do?)
Little did I know how long of a string he would make!
He came back the next week with a large bag.
The bag was filled with string, each tied together and with the bigyo at the end!
We wanted to try it so we strung it out, ok…
Ground level, walk it upstairs one level, into the living room, around to the stairs… next level… ok around to the back… next level… we realized that we could not try it cause after getting up to the top story of our building, there was still at least 6 more stories of string!
We still have not been able to try it, But he added some more strings and we might try it off of a skyscraper if we can find some place to let us do it.
When we do, Ill make a vid.
