I HEARD THAT

Hey, Monster. Yeah, you.

Ooh, look at me, I can google, and use UPA.org to ascertain the win-loss records of upcoming opponents. I see you. And I got your site update right here. (Booyah)

Also, lest you forget, I'm a machine designed for death. For Death. Whereas monsters are mostly for scaring, and teaching us valuable lessons about the consumption of cookies.

Why I hate playing in my glasses.

I hate playing in my glasses b/c I cannot play in my glasses, not for real anyway. I have begun wearing my spectacular spectacles at all times now. I have to so that my exams for eye refraction surgery, aka Lasik, are not skewed. My employer-provided vision plan is impeding my liberation, but at least I have a vision plan.

Anyway -- My few attempts to play in my glasses have proven frustrating. My glasses tend to be "slidey" and my pudgy, stump of a nose tends to make them even slidier when I sweat. (Yes. I sweat. Ultimate playing women sweat. We don't "glow.") Pushing my glasses back up when they slide down is a reflex. Accordingly, my timing for one handed catches, all things jumping, etc. has been thrown off. It sucks. For all of my grumbling, whining and general surliness, I love playing ultimate. It's like oxygen. I want it. I need it. Damn VSP to Hell.

So, tell me you miss me. Tell me you love me. Just don't tell me it's been better without me.

Gaoltimate Warm Up

So.. this week, I am starting pickup a little early.. HOWEVER.. we are going to start with Goaltimate.. then at 1 oclock.. we are going to have regular pickup.
Why? becasue I like Goaltimate.. and I think it's a great warm up.. and we should use the kick ass present that Anne got Shamik for his birthday :)
(details: 11:30 for goaltimate, 1:00 for standard pickup)
Does this sound like a good idea? Bad Idea? Thoughts?
(probably won't change my mind.. but figured i'd ask before I did it)

Pick Up Thoughts

Ok.. due to tons and tons of variables, our pickup games (this goes for Tues/Thurs as well as Sunday) are frequently lower level than the players playing in them.
Why?
Is there something about Pickup that makes players play sloppily on purpose? Is sloppy play more fun? Is it due to lack of chemistry? Is it due to heckling? (you throw a completed dumb, nothing gets said.. you throw up a big 50/50 disc that resules in some great looking grab or D and everyone enjoys heckling the resulting play)
Just curious what folks thoughts are.. and if they are happy with it the way it is. (Or if they have suggestions for what we can do to make it better, as we have control over the Sunday pickup games.. and lesser over tu/th games, though we can help eachother make a difference.
I'll post my thoughts in the comments.. please add yours!
