We took our BVarsity show quite literally on the road this afternoon, hitting up Pinnacle Performance Institute on Allen Road for a little evaluation/training session with Kyle Jean, who's one of our sponsors.
In the end, I bested the old man Louis Amestoy, in two of our three evaluation metrics (and yes, I know i can't jump), but Kyle normally does much more with his clients. If you're interested, Pinnacle is having an open house this Saturday from noon till 3 p.m. Come out and see what kind of programs he has available — for youth, students, elite athletes and adults, one and all.
Louis and I also got into baseball, softball and track and field when we weren't making fools of ourselves. Check it all out below. And as a reminder, we'll be broadcasting the Patriot Games track and field invite at 5 p.m. tomorrow, live on bakersfield.com. Only the top 16 marks in Kern County qualify for the meet, so it should be pretty good stuff.
