So proud of my buddies, Jen Short and Roxy Kamal! These women rock!

Trampoline Parks Are Dangerous

Futsal sounds healthy, trampoline parks on the other hand, no matter how innocent, fun and active they sound - turn out to be quite dangerous to those young and old.


I found out the hard way in March, trying to do an American Ninja type course, swinging on rings and totally pulling my rotator cuff, peck and forearm. And, then I was trying to do a basic trick, and two kids jumped onto my trampoline in mid air. They didn't get hurt, but it threw off my bounce, and I landed on my neck and severely sprained it. Didn't even hurt much until that night! 2-3 months of torture. Screwed up my rides with Olympic and Pro yachts.

Backyard trampoline = somewhat risky.

Public trampolines with tons of random people jumping everywhere = very risky.

Once you look into it, you'll see the many examples of serious trampoline injuries.

Parents of the peninsula beware!


Seems obvious.

Futsal sounds a lot safer than playing with knives, ya know what I mean? I kid, I kid.

Bruce Dickinson cracks myself up sometimes!


What is Futsal?
Who cares?
Lets have a vote
-Who knows what is Futsal?
-Who cares?
I guess this is the Summer Doldrums.

Holy-baby, c'mon, let's do a little more chillaxin' and enjoy the summer. A lot of people don't care, but a lot of people do care. Information about the very fabric of our community is useful to many and Bruce Dickinson is happy to oblige, my jokes at others' expense, notwithstanding.. I kid, I kid!

Frankly, I personally get a bigger laugh out of some bench racer who thinks his VW/Audi R8 with 500 pounds of dead weight and de-tuned "Lamborghini" (made by VW) engine can be competitive against Ferraris in a race. But as they say, different strokes for different folks, ya know what I mean? If you don't care, you don't have to click!


Thanks Mr. Dickinson.
I love jokes and sarcasm.
It is "trial by fire" as to use either on this site.
Nevertheless, it is always good to hear from you or "The Big Cheese."
You guys "get it."


The ladies have beaten the team from China in the Pacific Cup finals. Congrats on a huge victory!
