Finally, I think that being a "professional" implys being in another class from the amatuers and normal people. I think one of the coolest things about us is the lack of seperation from us and our audience. After our shows we amost always have people come up and try out our props. I don't think I have ever been to a show besides our own where a whole swarm of kids came up and tried to juggle afterwards. Even as a juggler, I would feel strange asking a performer I just saw to let me try something out. Now we always tell people to come on up to try stuff at the end of the show, but originally we just had people coming up and asking about props without prompting. I think this is because instead of coming across as professional jugglers we came across as just two guys who like to juggle, and sometimes, that can be a good thing. :)
I really like the picture found for this post, but it probably won't make sense unless I explain it. First off, it has an egg even though "kissin' an egg is no kind of style." Second, the egg is bouncing to show that dropping is not that big of a problem. Finally, it is just a sketch instead of a more professionally finished image.
