When you teargas a smooth hacky-sacker

probably a football/soccer player.

Wicked cool foot work!

he trained this longer than 5 hours

-Sir, they are kicking back our teargas grenades!
-Oh my God! We are all doomed! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!

That was seriously my first thought, too. You almost can’t pass an empty parking lot or cul-de-sac in the ME in the evening without seeing kids do this:

Well, it looked slick at first, but I think it’s a trick of perspective. The canister actually comes down right in front of him, so he really made the situation worse for himself.

lol, nice filename on the .gif! fuckin saved.

I can do this move! but not with teargas (yet!) As for the whole soccer/hack debate, I first saw this done in Nashville at the sunday hack circles in Centennial park back in '93 and I finally learned it about a year later. I never saw any of the soccer kids doing this back then, but I admit I wasn’t checking for them particularly. I’ve never heard anyone who can do it or bystanders refer to it as a soccer move. methinks we hackers invented this one and the soccer players adopted it. kinda like how surfers started “grinding the coping” of the top of the wave like a skater back near the millennium (or whenever, that’s just when I first saw it on tv.)

Dunno who invented it and when but I doubt it was invented in your’s or mine. Remember my grandpa telling me he used such mov to score a goal back in 1943. Football (Soccer, as you call it) goes a while back and most footwork has been invented ages ago.

Dude, we practised backheel passes with a stepover when I was a child! And that is a looooooooong time ago.
Jacky sack is basically keepie uppy without a bouncy round thing.


#12

93?


#13

Probably.


#14

I know I’m weird, but I never got the appeal of a game like this. you can just pull the hack out of your pocket and play easier than finding and booting the game cartridge.
smh


#15

who said anything about heels?

the bag/teargas is cradled where the toes meet the foot and swung to redirect it back the way it came.

is this just a terminology thing or are we seeing/talking about different moves?


#16

You pass with the instep normally, outside of the foot is for showing off! Yeah, terminology, perhaps I should have said a sidefoot rather than a backheel. It was the shimmy stepover that must have scrambled me.


#17

Jacky was my autocorrect version of hacky by the way. Not some passive aggressive dismissive misspelling.


#18

And THEN working your way up to booting the teargas canister? :smile:


#19

Yes, Grasshopper. When you can boot the tear gas, it will be your time to go…

HTH!
