Things Jammers Hear

Pick up your feet. Don’t take the outside. Keep pushing. Go go go!

Don’t go to the box.

You can do this. Shake it off. Whatever, let it go. You’re better than this. Nice jam!

Tweet tweet!

Don’t cut the track. Tweet, Black 8212, cut track major. Thirty seconds. Black 8212, stand. Black 8212, done.

Holy shit, nice apex jump! Great jam, lady. High five!

Get ready! She’s right behind you. Hit it and quit it! Call it, call it, call it! You’re not lead. Run it out. Make her call it!

You can do it. Keep going. Come in behind her! I’m coming. Run her out! Pick up your feet.

Don’t go back to the box.

You jam next.

Get lower. Check your speed. Remember to juke. Move your feet. Don’t come in hot. Use your blockers. You have to run it out. Keep pushing. You’ll get it next time.

Tweet! Black 8212, forearm. Blocking from out of bounds. Low block major. Cut. Cut. Cut. Tweet!

Seriously, you have to stay out of the box.

Good pushing. Way to stay clean.

Stay in the middle! Move your feet. You can do it! Keep fighting, run ‘em out! Come on, go! Move your feet!

Tweet tweet tweet tweet…
