The other day I was at sport check because my brother needed a new hockey stick (one 95) and while he was deciding I was just yoyoing. Some kid who was about my age came up to me and said “whoa, that’s so cool!” and went to get his dad. When his dad came I showed him a random combo, and he was like "so, he’s just obsessed with yoyos (so, there’s no problems with obsession right?).
The point of this post was to say that the community might be bigger if people didn’t put down yoyoing and steer those who are interested away from the hobby. I don’t think that this will change until the world realizes that there is more to yoyoing then walk the dog.
