Back to Ultimate

The weather hasn't made up its mind yet, but with no snow on the ground, that can only mean one thing - it's time for ultimate frisbee. A week back a notice went up on the message board that people were interested in playing, and with the longer days, the time was ripe to get back outside. Several people replied and said they'd be there, and the night before N was at the town dance and was told to get out there to play, so we went over.

The weather was still cold but tolerable, and the ground is still a bit soft, but nothing a bunch of UF fanatics can't handle. Besides, the sun was out, and I personally think it's easier to play in cooler weather as opposed to searing heat. About 15 people showed up, which is a good number, though many of us were rusty, and yours truly was achy and out of shape, but we had a good time. It was mostly high school kids so the level of play was high, at least for an old man like myself.

Afterward we went home for supper and I was feeling pretty beat. Nothing like a game of UF with a group of high school kids to remind you of how old and brittle you are. This is especially true the next day, but what are you doing to do?

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to albert.trank for the pic.
