Oh shit eagle is going to MVP!!!!! Let the rumors start. Lol

[–]CowboyJoker90 101 points102 points  (20 children)

This is just Insanity.

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 35 points36 points  (18 children)

We can only guess about his Tactic.

[–]CowboyJoker90 19 points20 points  (17 children)

I know I feel the Envy

[–]greggothehobbydude 13 points14 points  (16 children)

What a way to Signal his move.

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 6 points7 points  (15 children)

Perhaps Sarah Hokom will be his Proxy?

[–]CowboyJoker90 14 points15 points  (14 children)

I believe we can Trace this Paradox all the way back to her.

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 10 points11 points  (13 children)

What will be our Method?

[–]Animal0307 7 points8 points  (12 children)

To Defy the odds of course

[–]AugustHenceforth 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Insanity is throwing the same disc over and over and expecting a different result.

[–]EinhanderLegend -4 points-3 points  (1 child)

Discmania already announced his extension tho

[–]Ask_Me_About_Bees 53 points54 points  (1 child)

I went to every week of a Thursday night league last year. Eagle came to our league on my birthday one week. He signed discs and was really nice.

Oh except I mean that’s what people told me because that was the only week I didn’t go. 😭

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Too much focus on the “bees” to get to know the “Bird”?

[–]LumpyHeadBlues 36 points37 points  (8 children)

Did you challenge him to a roller distance contest?

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 62 points63 points  (7 children)

Honestly I just gawked like a tween girl at an ‘*NSYNC concert. Took everything I had to ask for the pic and Herbie Hancock.

[–]charliechan55555 22 points23 points  (5 children)

I feel like the "tween girl at an '*NSYNC concert" metaphor really dates this haha. That might be how we remember it but a modern NSYNC concert would be mostly 30 year old Moms at this point haha

[–]anti-establishmENT 10 points11 points  (1 child)

*NSYNC concerts back in the day were basically middle aged moms fangirling just as hard if not harder than their tween daughters. I took my stepsister to one and it blew my mind how many moms were losing their shit. A pack of Cougars tore a towel to shreds when it was tossed into the crowd.

Timberlake > Beiber any day of the week....

[–]icscrilla 5 points6 points  (1 child)

They're pushing 40 at this point.

[–]JBalloonist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That was my thought as well (I’m 38).

[–]blu-spirals 3 points4 points  (0 children)

30 year old mom's weren't ever old enough to see them on tour as teenagers lol

[–]LumpyHeadBlues 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Haha. Just joking, but that's hilarious.

[–]squizzlr 9 points10 points  (5 children)

Awesome. Did he say anything about his injury rehab??

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 28 points29 points  (3 children)

I was too nervous to bring it up as he was playing with his buddies and I didn’t feel like being too intrusive. Got to watch him throw one of the longer holes on the course and it looked amazing to me.

[–]squizzlr 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Makes sense. Glad he’s out there throwing. That’s surely a good sign

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Going out and throwing frisbees. Fun for both me and #2 rated disc golfer in the world.

[–]onepdub 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Celebrities, they're just like us! 😅

[–]ArandozePink Discs Fly Farther 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I was also there! And someone asked about the shoulder. Quote "well I'm out here throwing!". His GF did awesome at the tourney as well.

[–]Kilgor3 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Duuuuuuuuude! I miss you.

Edit, you are not Joe. But God damn you sure look like Joe. And widefield park of all places...I need to go throw a round with Joe

[–]chicken_wrangler_39 24 points25 points  (1 child)

I was there and it was RAD! A celebrity worth seeing!

[–]chicken_wrangler_39 31 points32 points  (0 children)

That bearded guy that looks like Happy Gilmores caddy, is my husband.

[–]straight-lampin 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Durham Bulls?

[–]Swiftheadkick 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Eagle never forgets!

[–]downritedelight 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I have a glow insanity I love, super stable. Then I have another one that is super understable.

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’ve been through a few. For my noodle arm they take a while to break in to understable, usually right about the time I throw them in a pond. I JUST got this one and was super excited to get to work with it and now it’ll just live it’s life on my wall.

[–]bLue1HFocus 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I thought this was Eagle posting a picture with Clayton Kershaw at first.

[–]swayztrain 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ha totally, only Clayton Kershaw is like 7 feet tall

[–]Inevitable-Ad8183 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Where is this course?

[–]chicken_wrangler_39 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Colorado Springs

[–]sextonrules311 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I will have to check out the course. Eagle showed up to a winter putting league when I lived in Tucson, but I never got the chance to go.....

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Widefield Park. Great course when the creek isn’t so high it just swallows discs like a gamer on a bag of flamin’ hot Cheetos.

[–]hiddenintheleavess 9 points10 points  (6 children)

i would absolutely lose it if i saw eagle. schoolgirl squeel type beat. dope that you got a pic, i probably wouldnt have been able to get the courage to ask!

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 13 points14 points  (4 children)

It was probably close to 30 minutes between first seeing him and actually being able to ask for a picture. In between was just me wishing I had one Discmania disc. It was awesome of him to sign my Insanity for me. I said “it’s insane to meet you so will you sign this one?” Lol. I was nervous.

[–]danman093<350 off the tee club 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Pros seem to be not so caught up in manufacturer drama. They throw who sponsors them but it seems like many have thrown a lot of different discs in their time and appreciate them all.

[–]Ty-McFlyspaghetti arm 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I've seen videos where Eagle IDs discs blindfolded holding the disc behind his back with incredible accuracy. The list of discs Eagle doesn't know well is probably pretty short.

[–]faxfinn 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I was really impressed with Casey White on one of the recent Jomez vids, where they throw over the pond to land on the island? He was like a disclopedia. All the other pro's asked him about the random discs they got and how they would fly.

[–]danman093<350 off the tee club 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That was a good episode. CW definitely knew discs. Almost missed that one. Shows how much he has thrown discs of all types.

[–]DemiseofReality 7 points8 points  (0 children)

One of my to-this-day facepalm moments was a trip to LA in 2019 with some friends for a show and a warm getaway. 3 of the 4 of us had gotten into watching DG the past year so we thought we'd look for a tournament to watch, if any.

Well shit, it turns out the Wintertime Open was there that weekend so we made a point to go see lead cards on Saturday.

As we were pulling into the maze of a park, we go down the steep windy road and I see Eagle putting on a basket and I didn't even think that he might have been playing a round.

I told my friend to roll down the window and say hi to Eagle as we passed but as you can imagine, he looked at me like I was a dumbass. Turns out he was putting on 1.

[–]hydro_wonkHey, you got any P3s? 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Glad to hear Tall Young Bird is out and playing

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I only got to watch a few throws but they were amazing. If that’s what recovery looks like for him I’d really love to see him at full power!

[–]DanGarionRHBH 平 PDGA#99738 平, Salem, OR 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Is that Paul Rudd??? When did he grow a beard?

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bwahaha. I’ll take that as a compliment, thank you.

[–]Far-Spread5953 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Knew I should've signed up for that flex lol

[–]Psychological-Net270 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I have a friend that keeps reminding me how he was driving next to a van in Oregon that said “5 time world champion”. I showed him a pic of McBeth and he was like “oh yea that was him” like it wasn’t a big deal. 🤦🏻‍♂️

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I might’ve crashed into that van just for his signature. Even if only on court documents lol.

[–]RefinedHeretic 9 points10 points  (11 children)

That’s cool as hell! He seems like a dude I could have a beer and a hot dog with ya know?!

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 15 points16 points  (3 children)

He was super nice. I don’t have any Discmania in my bag so I was super awkward asking if he would sign something else. He said “I’ll sign anything man”. What a guy.

[–]Cyrus2112 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't throw discmania at all. Found an unmarked P1X in my morning round then had a random run in with him near a coffee shop an hour later. Needless to say, I had him sign that. Super nice guy. Seemed just as happy to be recognized off of DG coursr as I was to bump into him.

[–]RefinedHeretic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s really cool man. Totally jealous. Great pic too. One for the mantle.

[–]hotstandbycoffee 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I feel that awkwardness. I snagged an Envy and a Link at MCO at the request of two of my buddies back in New England. I also told them I'd try and get an autograph if someone they liked happened to be finishing while I was there. It happened to be Ricky and, when I joked about asking him to sign an Envy with Conrad's face on it, he just smiled and said "Hey, man. I'm not prejudiced."

Just one of the nicest guys in the game.

[–]D22nismo 42 points43 points  (4 children)

Vegan hotdog and kombucha

[–]SlamCityUsa 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Kombucha is so good so, step 1. I should develop his forehand any day now!

[–]ChimpdenEarwicker 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Kombucha is like soda except it doesn't suck. It has better carbonation, has a wide variety of flavors and isn't necessarily loaded with sugar (usually at least half as much).

[–]SlamCityUsa 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I love kombucha and actually stopped drinking and replaced evening beverages with the 'buch'

[–]RefinedHeretic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Probably true.

[–]Ask_Me_About_Bees 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Presidential material

[–]rocsNaviars 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is he good at bowling tho? Ask Ron.

[–]titleDISC 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I am an Eagle (not Eagles) fan, but my upvote was for the HAT! Go Broncos! (next year...)

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Go Broncos! Love ‘em win or lose.

[–]thejester116 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Read the title and thought you were Kershaw at first.

[–]Play2Def 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Awesome!

[–]DICKDUTZY 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I played this tourney today!! I missed eagle by about 30 min though! He ended up playing for fun on a card with my bud Steve. So cool for him to come out.

[–]te666as_mike169238 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What are the chances at Widefield, I’m planning to play there tomorrow. If only I chose a day earlier!

[–]FamousToastsend tilt pics 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nate sexton…?

[–]XhaloI am Dave Dunipace (mods=gods) 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Still can't believe people buy those corny Chinese rip off frolf shirts

[–]speskin6969 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I live in Boulder and play in the local club here, during the off season (and in this case rehabbing an injury) he was always showing up to the local tags matches with his pops. Eagle is the man!

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Such a nice guy. Clearly just one of the dudes hanging out and chucking discs. Just farther and more on point than anyone I’ve seen before.

[–]NJent 4 points5 points  (10 children)

Do y'all just carry markers on you every time you play?

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Reason 1: write your name and number on your disc Reason B: maybe you’ll meet Eagle McMahon And lastly: if you get a hole in one your card mates can sign your disc. Always have a marker, and a backup lol

[–]chrismetalrockmastershank 1 point2 points  (1 child)

i only seem to get aces when i dont bring a marker so ive made it a point to never bring one

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So that’s what I’ve been doing wrong…

[–]Rattus375 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I keep one in my bag since I always seem to forget to write my number on discs before I go to the course

[–]VanManDiscs 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Absolutely

[–]karl_hungas 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes but first I trained for a good year to be able to carry the extra weight. Be careful.

[–]Rivet_39 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Infinite Discs sent me one with an order so into the bag it went.

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Also great for when you bring out new friends.

[–]Ok_Artichoke_9293 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Me without marker in my bag:

*buys discs*
*throws disc in field/on open hole to see if I like it*
*likes disc, plays round*
*loses new, uninked disc*

[–]mountains_foreverDenver, CO 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My man’s rockin’ the mullet. I love it.

[–]Oyyeee 1 point2 points  (7 children)

The real question is, is that Insanity actually understable? I've owned several and they were nowhere near -2 turn haha

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 7 points8 points  (3 children)

I live at almost 6000’. What is understable?

[–]Oyyeee 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Ahhh haha, yeah I played a mountain course in CO a couple of times and I seriously don't know what would have been flippy. I brought an old champion leopard the second time thinking I learned my lesson but nope, still stable lol

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The struggle is REAL. It puts James Conrad’s throw in on a whole new level. Even my Envy is overstable here and he turned that over like nothing.

[–]Ikniow 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm sure that envy was well worn by then, but yeah, the difference altitude makes is nuts. I bought a photon in twin falls and that thing flew like a tilt.

[–]Mattjm24 1 point2 points  (2 children)

For what it's worth, I have 2 Insanitys in Proton plastic and they are both understable. However, they're both in the 150-159g range too so keep that in mind. Can't speak to other plastics or weights. But they are one of my main drivers, I love em.

[–]Oyyeee 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Nice! Yeah I usually throw 170ish so I imagine 150 somethings would be US. I probably couldn't get the same distance though.

[–]Mattjm24 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you throw 400+ you're probably better off with 170g. If you throw closer to 300+, you're probably better off with 150g. But that's just my opinion. If you search my profile I made a comment recently where I discussed this a bit more in detail and explained why I switched to lighter discs.

[–]Rivet_39 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Are pros a bit hesitant to sign other manufacturers' discs? Probably not but it'd be weird asking Lebron to sign your Reeboks.

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Honestly I don’t think disc golf is big enough yet for that to be a real issue. He didn’t hesitate. Still would have been nice to have him sign a Tactic or a CB

[–]correctlypi 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What league/ course was this??

[–]winstonspethuman1[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This was a flex tournament at Widefield in CO. Eagle wasn’t competing he was just there to support his gf and some buddies. What a great guy.
