So I was sitting in a high school office today waiting to be interviewed for a full time teaching job in Grand Rapids, MI. I was talking with one of the other candidates waiting to be interviewed for the Job and mentioned that I was a yoyoer.
He tells me “oh really? do you know Jake Maloney?”
I said, “I don’t know him personaly, but I met him at a contest once. He helps with all the Michigan contests and is sponsored by Duncan I think”
Come to find out he was related, I don’t remember how exactly (possibly an uncle), but although we both traveled hours away from home and met randomly we still both had yo-yo connections. Weird.
Suddenly the yoyo world seems a little smaller.
