Emmanuel Bouchard's record shattering streak of 36 (or more) straight tournament victories in Singles Net will stand for all time as one of the greatest accomplishments the sport of Footbag will ever see.
Singles Net is by far the most gruelling test in our sport. It demands endurance, skill and, most importantly, mental focus and strength of will. For Manu to bring all those things to every match for more than 6 years is simply awe-inspiring.
Manu, I thank you for the inspiration and look forward to more epic battles on the court. As you know, there's still your streak of 7 straight World Singles titles to be dealt with .

I just hope Airtime productions puts it on DVD and I can buy it from Manus site.
I agree with Kenny that singles is the most grueling portion of our sport but I would go even further and say it has to be one of the most grueling events in ALL of sport. Especially the way you two play it.
Hats off to both of these legends for all of their milestones and setting the bar so high for the rest of us for so long.

Airtime was not there (kinda like you, or so I hear). If anyone is wondering, my filming plans for this summer are Montreal, Quebec city and World's. I plan to release two DVD's, one after World's and one in the fall.
I hope to have Kenny in as many of those as possible...
Manu and I are also going to be releasing a 3 part series of instructional videos, from beginners to pros, for players everywhere to be able to learn the techniques taught here in Montreal. Much of this btw, originated in your area long ago, so look for a tribute to good ol' Mag(among others) in there somewhere. We hope to achieve widespread distribution with this project, because it will be a useful tool for learning or teaching the game at all levels, instead of being a novelty 1hr videoclip.
\sorry for the plug
\\just thought I'd let you know (and everybody else)
