My snowboard ripped out from under my feet but I continued to sail through the air. I turned it into a superman dive and surprisingly landed softly elbows first on the other side. I had about 10 feet of air. I thought I was going to get injured. If I didn't know how to superman dive, I probably would of broken my neck after landing on my face. It was a good thing I didn't land on the table top. That was the most monster superman dive I've ever accomplished.

Kind of a revive, but yes. I've discovered that paintball skills in general cross over to other sports, dodgeball being the most obvious. The other day, playing db in wellness, I slid UNDERNEATH a ball coming at me (Skint my legs and arms up, but oh well...) grabbed a ball laying on the ground and got two people out before making a "tradeout" (I ran to half court and got out someone, but they got me out as well.

Last week I was running to another bunker and halfway across I slip and fall flat on my stomach. I look up and no one saw so I crawled to it quickly. I was ashamed of myself for being so unathletic

People fall all the time. Its a fast paced, slippery sport. As long as you dont face plant into mud then its safe to say you have no reason so feel embarrassed.

I was playing some outlaw ball on a hill. These guys had taken a bunker on the top of the hill. As I came around a corner climbing up, they started dropping tons of paint on me. Luckily, their first three shots bounced, and I was able to pull back. I start running down this hill, but it had been raining and slip in the mud. I slide 50 feet down this hill on my butt and one of my knees. I finally came to a stop when my knee hit a rock. That was a painful day.

When the fields are slick, especially in the rain, its sometimes hard not to slip and fall. But there are times when falling has an advantage. I remember I was cutting across the field to get the last kill. As I was running, I clipped one of the bunker stakes and started to stumble. Still stumbling, I made it to the opponents bunker just I started to go into "faceplant" mode. But my gun was up and without even looking, I shot the guy in the pack as I was going down. He knew I was coming but was not expecting me to be falling so he aimed high. I felt like an idiot for falling, but my teammates thought it was the funniest kill ever.

Here is the video where I eat it...

I fall just about every time I play... It happens.

Luckily for me, the guy who just shot out my team mate felt bad for me falling so he didn't light me up...

And I managed to scramble up and hide and watch what happened. Later he said he should have never waited to fire!

Last time I fell was when I was running around the map to make a flank and I fell hit my head on a tree, ripped my knee up on the branch, my hopper went playing. No one saw me so I got up put my hopper back on and finished my flank and got the rest of the team out for the win! So all in all it worked out.

I remember back during my third time ever out (before I had invested in pads) I was in a dorito during a 2v2. I thought my mirror was preoccupied so I figured i'd go ahead and try to bunker someone for the first time. As a started to sprint downfield, my mirror snapped out and sent a couple my way. I wanted more than anything to do an ultra cool superman dive like the pros I had seen, but I also knew that it would destroy my arms (which were bare). So what did I do? Dove onto my shoulder, knocked all of the wind out of me, dropped my gun, and got lit up ahaha notthe best idea

Playing in a scenario game and led a charge to the flag with no gun (was out of paint and air). I ended up "finding" a ditch, but everyone saw me go down and jumped over it.

I guess I took that one for the team.
