TRANSCRIPT: REPORTER: "If you've ever considered the frisbee merely a frivolous toy, you might want to change your opinion. It's still a toy but its a lot less frivolous. Because the not so frivolous Smithsonian Institution sponsored its first annual frisbee festival today, and several thousand frisbee enthusiasts came to the mall in front of the Capitol building to hurl their plastic discs and watch professional frisbee experts demonstrate their craft. Age didn't seem to be a restriction. And not all of the experts were human. Jackson Bain, NBC News, Washington."
