As the newsroom yo-yo expert, I read Becky Wright’s story about a Mountain Green teenager in Sunday’s paper with a mixture of awe and humility.
Awe because McKenna Zentner, 17, is simply amazing with a yo-yo. I saw her working out here at the office while Kera Williams was putting together a video, which you should watch at www.standard.net.
Humility because I used to think I was pretty good. Kids today have taken the old Duncan yo-yo hobby to a level I never dreamed of.
Part of it is new technology. Modern yo-yos are warp-drive spaceships while I use Model-T Fords. I mean, yo-yos not attached to strings? No kidding, they do that now.
But there is one universal.
