If at first you don’t succeed, well that’s normal.

So I love to how the games and stuff I build.

But quite a few times, things don’t work out as planned or as idea-ed.

I typically don’t even take pics of those things.  Well because nobody likes to admit they screwed something up.  But it happens to all of us.

While looking through some old pictures, I found this:


This was my goal post for use in our sports themed VBS.  This was phase 1.  I ended up cutting the horizontal pieces quite a bit shorter.  I think I ended up having to glue the PVC together to make it stay and not droop down.  I had initially wanted to not glue it to make it easy to store.

Here’s after I painted the posts yellow to make them look more like a goal post and to cover up the text:


So even when you fail, learn from it and move on.  Don’t give up.

Also, I can’t believe how messy my garage was.  Man what a mess.  It is actually pretty organized now.  Maybe I’ll do a post on how I work out of my garage.  Back in the past, I had to work in the driveway because of the mess in the garage.

Of course, you could always just buy a goal post set.
