Dilly Jam happened recently


An hour before catching the light rail to the jam, Caleb and I were eating breakfast outside at the Seward Cafe. Fingers freezing, Caleb sought out some hand coverings and overcame with the power of free-box socks.
 
His mission is to get close to you and have you sign something. Whether it is his jacket, stick, or piece of cardboard, he wants you to sign it. I don't know who he is or what his goals are with the signed goods, but at least he's doing something cool. We ran into him before getting to the jam, so I properly rewarded this noble swain with some real street credibility.

These guys definitively without question, clear as crystal, enjoying a good time.

The rail was talking shit, Reed was the only one who could shut him up. I'm really not sure what he's doing here but he may just be 3ing out of the spine to grinding that rail. Possible smith? Or maybe he's grinding up the rail and into the spine? I guess you had to be there.

 What many people don't know about Lee is that he is truly passionate about trains. Conducting in his spare time, Lee chugga-chugga choo-choo's up and across this treacherous railway, while a young unknown derails in the foreground.

 I know this isn't the best photo of Seth casting the bars timing wise, but you've seen those a dozen times. Why don't you try something new? Demonstrating the proper pop that goes along with the task, Seth Stretch Armstronging for a high-5.
Deljon Willis has a moment of clarity while Jesse Jarvie and Mike Gelle take a break from riding to get some time in on their new yo-yo's.

So there you have it, that was everything that happened at this most recent Dilly Jam. See you next year!

erik elstran, reed stark, and an incredibly late post.

so i am now realizing that despite the fact that this is the team dilly website, it was never officially announced on here that the latest team dilly video entitled "TEAM DILLY IS THE MAN" has been available for quite some time. it is available online for $9.99 at Empire BMX, available locally in Minnesota at Penn Cycle & Fitness, and through US shops via Full Factory Distribution and UK shops via Snap Distribution.

got a couple of videos to show as well. elstran's section from td is the man which is now at a whopping 175,000 views here:

and reed stark's latest sun ringle web edit here:

enjoy! elstran now has the capability to post here, so hopefully that will rally the troops to keep this updated. until next time...

When Kyle asks you to film a clip you have to understand he wasn't asking you a question. That afternoon Seth came up one clip short and decided he wouldn't mind a bag of black eyed soup.

Saturday Afternoon Fantasy Factory Sesh

Posting this is proof that BMX is always at least one year behind skateboarding and maybe half as self-aware BUT I think it's worth posting. Copy-paste your favorite Bluff Valley/Fantasy Factory grom and "Haro/Preminum/Cult tape" into this.

Trip to the Bathroom

Our friend Walter posted this up on Facebook the other day--or I guess maybe it was today. Either way, this would be a session at an indoor skatepark I've never seen before, but presumably is in Austin, Texas, so let's not ask in a fit of delusion which third-ring suburb this park is in and whether they're True Ride ramps or not. Truth time: this edited like horseshit and the filming is AWFUL, but it features Seth Peterson, sole Team Dilly--So Cal chapter member Dan Shea, Devon Lampman, and the rarely-seen Chris Hudson. So if this is indeed a pile of turds, then IT MUST BE COATED IN GOLD AND RUBIES. Meet you down below.

Let's pause and appreciate the fact that Chris does what look like normal tailwhips and then surfs them in the rawest way possible. SO SICK. That might read as sarcastic, but I mean it. Chris could easily not surf tailwhips, but chooses to. A Butcher homage, perhaps--Chris is a pretty art-enabled dude.

Thursday Night Dinner

Look, I know that this is purportedly a BMX-related blog, but we need to talk about the MINNESOTA TWINS here! If you aren't into baseball, this is going to suck for you, and you should probably just look at Chrix's new fishing pole down below.

Yesterday I posted something about how the Twins had been disappointing me with lackluster off-season moves because I am an occasionally-paying customer that deserves to be catered to, and here comes today. BAM, DENARD SPAN gets shuffled off to Washington DC for what appears to be something a little better than the bottom of the barrel, pitching-wise.

Once more: appears to be.

The new fella's name is Alex Meyer. If skill level, club needs, outfield depth (we have more than we need, okay?), and just about every possible metric suggesting that Revere is a cheaper and better option for center field were negated it would be INSANELY hard to justify getting rid of a dude named Denard for a dude named Alex. It's not even close to 1:1. You know who's named Alex? My half-Asian roommmate from my freshman year at the U.

But I digress. This new pitcher with the vanilla-Jennifer-Aniston-khaki-Dockers name looks like this:

Looks like a right-handed pitcher to me, I guess.

I wish I had him here to confirm, but supposedly Denard Span was (is?) Brandon Morcomb's favorite ballplayer. Sorry dude!

Meanwhile, I expect his spot in center to be filled by Revere and then one of the lackey's from the 40 Man will shoot into right. Mastroianni, maybe? Who cares--none of them can hit, they field on an "ehhhh, okay" level, and that's all I really expect or care about. Plus dude, PITCHING. PITCHING!!! It's that big of a deal. So let's all celebrate and drink to our (probably temporary and fleeting) positivity to a not-90+ games-lost 2013 season!

To celebrate I'm going out to dinner with my girlfriend tonight. Not only that, but it's at some kind of fancy place out in Inver Grove Heights. Pool and Yacht Club, maybe? Something to that tune. We're going out to eat (AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, DRINK) tonight on her father's dime. LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
