I've been footbagging for about 2 years now. And i'm trying to get more people to join me. They always seem to ask me why? and say its a stoner sport. It pisses me off. I try to tell them that its one of the best sports to play, but they dont seem to listen. Could somebody help me out??

When I want to extol the virtues of playing footbag upon one of my friends or a newcomer that has asked to play with me (that happens all the time, I try to convert them! lol) I always talk about the stretching benefits.
Hacky sack started as a warm-up routine for some pacific islanders (this is widely debated, but this is one of the sport's many origins around the world, I mean really who can claim they invented kicking a bag up and down?)
I can't seem to write a single paragraph without putting side thoughts in parenthesis today it seems (is it indicative of something in my personality maybe???) but yes, if I had to roll my entire benefits speech into one point, it all comes back to the stretching for me. It's like yoga, you're working out and stretching. Cardio workout too, which Yoga isn't actually.
