With the wedding coming up at the end of next month (That’s crazy!) Jenny and I celebrated out bachelorette and bachelor parties. I stayed in Austin and fired some guns, went to some comedy clubs, played paintball, and enjoyed some BBQ with friends. Jenny took a slightly bougier approach by flying to Napa Valley, CA for some wine, yoga, shopping, etc. Now it’s full steam ahead with last minute wedding prep!

On a side note, I asked Jenny to go to the bank to pick up $500 in singles on the Thursday ahead of my bachelor party. It made perfect sense to me: I am offering prize money for my new YouTube Series – Pros Vs 5.0s – and I thought $500 in singles would look cool. She agreed to pick up some cash, but gave it to me once I returned home from the bachelor party haha! Check out the section below on how those singles were put to use!

In pickleball news, I actually played a tournament for the first time since early December! Andrea Koop and I got to the quarterfinals before losing to Anna Bright and James Ignatowich, but we did have this highlight point which was pretty solid! Erik Lange and I partnered up for the first time and had ourselves a day! We won two solid matches before beating the #2 seed of Riley Newman and Thomas Wilson. We lost to Dekel Bar and Tyson McGuffin, but defeated Christian Alshon and Julian Arnold to take Bronze!

Watch out for my new YouTube series: Pros vs 5.0s, where the 5.0s will have some sort of an advantage over the pros, all playing for a $500 pot. Ever wonder if 5.0s could win if the pros had to play one up, one back? or if the 5.0s got a bigger court, or if the pros had to play with two paddles? See for yourself starting February 27th!
