tape-it-down

noinhibitor  asked:

Hey, just wondering if you knew why Kelley has started wearing the tape round her wrist? Sometimes it looks like there is writing on it too, but the picture quality/angle is never good enough to read it...I know they all wore tape with writing on it for Kriegs at the last Olympics as she couldn't be there; but I've seen a couple of theories but nothing concrete. Thanks!

She’s been wearing a friendship-style bracelet on her left wrist (one of them in the gif below), and usually those have to be cut or broken to be removed. However, players are not allowed to wear jewelry of any kind on the pitch unless it is taped down. If you look closely at some pictures of her playing with the USWNT especially, you can see that there is a bump in the tape (pic below), which seems to be the bracelet taped down. I don’t know the significance of this bracelet or who gave it to her or anything like that, but that seems to be why she has her wrist taped lately.

Mischief Brew - O, Pennsyltucky!

“When the tape slows down it means the battery’s dead.  May your songs never get stuck out of my head.  If I ever fall asleep I remember my dream where everybody’s there and nobody leaves.”

Although I only hung out with him a few times, I’m really feeling the loss of Erik Petersen today.  Back when I was first getting into DIY I remember watching Mischief Brew videos on the internet and fumbling around with the chords of “Old Tyme Mem'ry” on a clunky acoustic guitar.  Fast forward seven or eight years, I got the chance to play with Erik and meet his beloved pugs.  We chatted about music and dogs for awhile and picked right back up the next time I saw him.  He was a very kind, genuine person – the kind of person this world needs more of.

Erik’s songs inspired bandana-wearing punk kids to pick up guitars and play, to question the systems under which we live, and to live with passion.  

Hold tight to the ones you love.  Rest in pugs, buddy.
