Completely off-topic, but I’ve got to share. In the bucket list that I mentioned in a previous post, I claimed that I wanted to play Ultimate Frisbee until I was well into my 60’s. What I failed to include on that list, but one item that’s been subconsciously on my bucket list for a long time, is that I wanted to win a National Championship in something. I’ve played Ultimate Frisbee for almost two decades, and though I’m pretty good — I’ve played at the National Championships eight times, the World Championships once, and I’ve won numerous local leagues and small tournaments — I never thought I’d win a national title for anything athletic.
Well, hear ye, hear ye! This past weekend, my teammates from Scrapple (a Philadelphia-based team with two other guys and myself from DC) and I descended on Lebanon, OH, and we won the USA Ultimate Grand Masters National Championships! En route to a perfect 6-0 record, we beat teams from Milwaukee, California, Boston, Chicago, North Carolina and Colorado.
Cross another item off the list!
Here’s a Frisbee joke that involves relativity (or is it a relativity joke that involves a Frisbee?):
I wondered why the Frisbee kept getting larger and larger… then it hit me.
