I have personally seen a few people literally throw mini tantrums when they ‘didn’t get voted in as a National Master.
…Here’s the thing> Getting the ‘Nod’ as a National Master is not something ‘you win’.
The National Master Status is something Awarded. (Ed, I understand that ‘you’ already know this). My explanation is just to just put things in the proper alignment for others reading this thread that may not know exactly how a person achieves that level of recognition.
You, obviously have a very clear view of this.
But, that being said, your humble nature keeps you from the realization that, to me, the cumulative sum of your yoyo related endeavors, makes you a very justified candidate to receive such an ‘Award’.
Because everything you have done over the years, was not at all done in an effort to ‘win’ anything.
You just do what you do because of your selfless mission to share, educate and keep the flow of Yo going.
When you do eventually get the National Master Title. I won’t be surprised at all.
Personally, I love surprises… But some things just aren’t surprising at all.
They are just things a lot of us know are going to happen…
You are one Badd man… Ed.
