    Great point to elaborate on this way. I see both are wearing gloves, something I’ve been suggesting ever since the ‘thing’ began. Some were talking sanitizing the ball, lol! How practical is that eh? 🤣

    To, not too.

    I appreciated the video. It’s true that often the wisdom in a phrase is applied too generally, to cases where it doesn’t apply. A sound bite often won’t apply in all situations. So, it’s nice to see someone else besides Mark Renneson (Third Shot Sports) who takes the time to debunk false pickleball claims.

    Great video, Steve. I’ve been told numerous times to hit at the feet. I liked seeing your glass of beer (?) slowly emptying during the video 🙂

    Forget the gloves. Just wash your hands after

    Why was the 3rd shot drive returned so slow? Also is their a reason the ball was ascending when he got to it? If you are trying to keep them back it should be hit the same amount of pace as their drive. The angle should be slightly down, a low trajectory, with their pace returned against them. What you demonstrated was the pop up off of the shake and bake. If you were playing a doubles teem they would be there even quicker because the partner of the returner will be cheating forward especially if they have seen you pop up the return like that.

    Great Video! Where do you play in Hillsboro? Besides your home.

    I wonder if the neighbors ever complain about that popping sound.

    transmission of cove it is long to long by droplets and aerosols. Wearing a mask is the bulk of the protection you can achieve so if you’re not doing that then why bother with washing bowls. It’s absurd. It would be very difficult for droplets to go from the Ball to your lungs. How to do that?

    “Too” Means also I think you meant to use “to”.

    I don’t think it is a misconception but rather a generalization. There is always the exception of when not to do something. For example, the 3rd shot drop, lob serve, etc. Also, most recreational players are not going to play against the top pros.
