Yoyo Nightmares


#1

You’ve most likely talked about your dreams that you want to achieve in your career as a Yoyo Player, but now its time to say your biggest fears in your career.

What is your nightmare?


#2

Okay, so I’m walking around in the mall following my sisters and I reach for my yoyo…

…but it’s not on my belt loop.

DUHN DUN DUUUUUUHHHHHNNN


#3

I woke up screaming that night, I also wondered why my sister came all the way from Minnesota (or Massachusetts, I forget sometimes) just to go to a mall.


#4

Well, when I was at PNWR this year, something happened. I brought all my expensive yoyo’s in a little suitcase kind of thing. (My dad ended up giving me $20 to help pay for a large YYE bag)

My parents were sitting down and wanted to take pictures of me on the stage. After that we left to go grab a bite. As we left I was putting my new Avalanche in my pocket while my dad went to help get my case. I was like “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO”

He grabbed the handle and lifted the case. The little things that snap the suitcase closed were open and ALL of my yo-yo’s fell and clanged on the ground. I was ready to crap my pants. Everyone around us was like “OOOOOOOOOH.” The yo-yo’s ended up being fine with no dings or flatspots even. That scenario and that noise of 25 yo-yo’s hitting the ground at once always haunts me in my dreams.

Dude, it wasn’t even funny when my cousin dropped my OG 7075 Superstar in the pool…


#6

I’m so sorry you had to go through this. :frowning:


#7

you should have gone to the meet yesterday, my Equinox fell in the fountain.


#8

I didn’t know there was a meet. How can I get contacted as to when the meets are? If there’s an emailing list, let me.

Back on topic, you just have no love for YYF yoyos so yeah.


#9

I swear it actually happened… i was in a contest…so my turn came and was i reaching for my OD cafe in my pocket racer and i didn’t find it! i woke up in panic and i realised i don’t even have a yoyo,i was pleased ::)…


#10

BUT WHO WAS THROW?


#11

Mine is the recurrence of something that happened to me 15+ years ago. I was shooting the moon with a Yomega Saber Raider (sharp edges…my gosh) and the yoyo stalled on the upswing. Shot directly onto my brow and cracked it open. Required 6 stitches.

Relive that moment once in a while. :-\


#12

ill make a thread


#13

I don’t understand how I’ve broken multiple consecutive strings in this same place.


#14

you will never own a original metal grind machine
you will never meet the throwers you look up to
you will never steal A whip from Ann Connolly
you will never be sponsor by x(or in iyoyo58’s case yyj)


#15

Yoyoing mimes!

…that is the stuff nightmares are made of.

lol at the plant in the fish tank.


#17

I fear breaking my fingers, or getting, some type of arthritis


#18

Oh… I thought we were talking about like a bad dream…

One time when I was sleeping, in my dream I met Zach Gormley.

Scary stuff.


#19

So i am yoyoing, and i am throwing my favorite glacier express, (out of the seven that i have), which has an ash berry colorway, and in the middle of an awesome combo, the string snaps, and the yoyo flies out the window into my pool. I wake up screaming before sighing with relief: I do not have even one glacier express, i do not have a pool, the combo was one that i have not learned yet, and i am colorblind so the colorway thing has nothing to do with anything… thank The Lord it was only a dream… oh wait… i still want a glacier express.


#20

I was walking around with my new throw, Bunblebee. I was at my pool. And I put it down on the table and went swimming. An hour later it’s gone. I keep swimming. Then I find it in my pocket in my bathing suit…

And there are these two LITERALLY DEVIL kids. One time they took a yoyo and almost threw it on the ground. Since they are spoiled and their mother does nothing I had to grab it from him. He ended up biting my arm, I told his mom and she was like “Awww Harper did you do that? That’s bad and don’t do it again”…
