    Really looking forward to seeing something in Sports Illustrated for someone so deserving but regardless Alan, your name will always be synonymous with speed bagging, my grandson is already talking about "Alan Kahn" You are and always will be the "Grand Master" of "Bible Style Bagging" and have given us (the baggers) that place to go that is so challenging, so entertaining, so much fun that somehow, even in such a small way it helps make us whole. Thank you so much Alan.

    The past 3 days have a been a remarkable event for me. And I hope the speed bag. Microphones were constantly rolling, ... hundreds of "deep dive" questions into all parts of my Life, speed bag and and just about everything else. Childhood, schools, jobs, where I lived, why I moved there etc.... My life "before speed bag" and my life "since speed bag". Interviewed my wife and on daughter. Got the names of a few baggers they may call. The writer plans on a mail story spread and will leave it to the editors and how they view it. Anyway, in the early 1990's I dreamed of getting the speed bag into The biggest sports magazine around, Sports Illustrated. After this weekend - I'm starting to think that will actually happen.

    ps: some of members may hear their names in the podcast.



    All good news

    This is Wife, with Dan Blood (podcast) and Greg Bishop, (special features writer), Sports Illustrated.
    That's great that their having a good time with the (art of the bag) Hopefully more people will see the benefits and ease of use, not to mention it's a fun way to exercise, I hope they put a piece in Sports illustrated about their experience with you and push more people to bag at home.

    Fun Fact; So I'm hanging out with Greg Bishop of Sports Illustrated, and he is NOT 6'5" and 270lbs who played 7 years pro offensive line.. He's about 5'10 and 200lbs. Wikipedia has the two confused and somehow they can't get it fixed.

    So, He says "A lot of people are surprised when we meet because they read the Wikipedia page and a few other links that say the 6'5" 270lb Greg Bishop works for SI, but that is not him."

    He says he even contacted the other Greg Bishop and did a little story about it, but for some reason can't get it changed. Anyway, He, me and Dan Bloom podcast supervisor had a great day together, touring Waco and talking about lots of stuff. Tuesday is serious speed bagging. Teaching and hitting to music they want to see. (they have songs in mind...). Should be fun!


    Kick ass !!!

    But suddenly... it does...

    Sports Illustrated is coming to town.

    That's fantastic! Congratulations!
