For all of my fellow YoYo fans … June 9th is Happy National YoYo Day! I have to admit, I haven’t mastered yet sick yoyo moves (or, let me be even more honest – I don’t even think I know how to yoyo … D’oh!) … but it doesn’t stop me from appreciating mad yoyo skills when I seem them!

Now … you don’t have to wear the ninja warrior outfit (unless it seems to improve the likelihood of your yoyo mastery – go for it!) … but, if you want to take it back to basics and give yo-yoing another shot you can (1) call up Zach Gormley and see if out of the kindness of his heart he’ll teach you when he’s not globetrotting to competitions, or (2) thank Duncan Toys for putting some awesome tutorial videos that will get you going in no time: https://www.yo-yo.com/index.php/site/howto/yo-yo/beginner

And … on that note – Carpe Diem TBSH Peeps and spread the yoyo love! — XOXO, Bridge
P.S. Let’s not forget to cheer on the World YoYo contestants August 3, 2016 in Cleveland, Ohio!
