The first casualty of spring


As warm, sunny weather arrived in D.C. today, I (not having a real job) went out with John Taylor (also not having a real job, but productively pursuing a Masters in Economics) to toss the Aerobie on the National Mall. Alas, today was the last day of flight for this particular Astonishing Flying Ring. After nearly a year of use — skimming across the fields of Vanderbilt, Rice, Brown, Georgetown, and Seattle University — its hardy inner ring finally gave out. We gave it a few last throws, for even a shattered Aerobie will still fly true, but now it’s time to put this one down to rest. Ashes to ashes, polycarbonate to polycarbonate.

  1. Where does one purchase a replacement Aerobie in this area? I need a new one as well, but they’re sometimes difficult to find.

  2. I got mine at Target in Falls Church. I went a little crazy yesterdayand bought 11 projectile toys (some online, some at Target). You can also get them at

    Anytime you want to take a break from law school and toss a few, you know who to call.
