Colin "Heezabeast" Loughlin came to town and beasted it up with the Brooklyn Flyers in Prospect Park. We flew kites I think, but more importantly we invented a game I am going to refer to as "Scream Ball." To play, all you need is a football and some screamy friends.
Rules: One player--the "thrower"--has the ball. All other players run in varying directions and call for a pass by screaming the thrower's name. Whoever screams more or less the loudest gets the pass. Whoever gets the ball is now the thrower.
We left the park and had a triumphant return to my roof for a BBQ, and then into the city for Tru Brit.
...And it was good.

The park was a little eerie at 7 am but a little before work flying was exactly what this odd Wednesday called for; it was a maiden voyage for Foxy, the successor to Soxs, and true to form, she flew like a mad banshee out of hell and then kept hitting the ground. I got her up a couple of times but never above the trees to where that nice clean air blows. So I took a picture of her on the ground. Why the hell not, that's my theory.
My new idea. Make a mini Delta kite, something with a wingspan of maybe a foot or something, that is completely collapsible and that you can travel with. Wouldn't that be cool? A little tiny baby kite? A little weeny teeny sort of bird like bee sized kite... theoretically, how small can a kite be?
