    MsDeville Gets Ink – No! Not a Tattoo...

    Ink, as in newsprint ink! The local daily newspaper (the Kitsap Sun) caught wind of my "hobby" and contacted me a few weeks ago, asking if they could do a story. Being the narcissistic exhibitionist that I am , I was all for it. I thought it would be a great way to try to gain more interest in the sport/hobby.

    Derek Sheppard (a SUN reporter/videographer, and Meegan Reid, photographer) came over on Thursday and sat down with me to find out what my addiction is all about. The story was posted online today, along with video footage and still photos. Derek did a really nice job, I think.

    Anyway, I thought I'd share the story with my speed bag compatriots. Frankly, I got very nervous when I had to sit there and talk on-camera.

    Unfortunately, Derek couldn't video me hitting to music because of the copyright issues (dang), so the video lacks the impact, or should I say punch, without music. (For me, it's kinda like a canoe without a paddle. You can't have one without the other.)

    Anyway, here are the links, if you're interested in checking it out:

    Next time Oprah calls, go for it, Dee. You've been holding her at bay for too long now. Your transformational approach dwarfs the results of all those self-help gurus she's in tight with, your story is the tip of the baggification iceberg. Baggification for the Nation! Don't bag to differ, bag the world!

                          Wow! Great stuff Ms D, spreading the word of the speed bag. That was a very nice video they did. Thanks for the shout out to the forum! We always welcome new members , because the people make the community!

                          Well regardless, the punches you were doing , split fist, elbows, etc. wilL WOW 99.999% of the public who probably have NO idea that can be done ont he speed bag.

                          Congratulations and thanks for spreading the word!
