This, my friends, is fairly good weather for a game of Ultimate.
I say “fairly good” because really, I’d love to play in 80 degree weather, under a huge blue sky on an open field of thick, green grass. That stuff comes with late-spring and summer, though, so I’ll just have to wait. Right now, though, it’s finally warm enough where I can catch a disc and not have to deal with the stinging in my hands afterward due to the cold weather, so I’m loving it. I’ve thrown a disc twice this whole spring, and I’m just itching to play more.
Ultimate is my absolute favorite sport. I get such a rush from that perfect snap of my wrist that sends a disc soaring twenty or thirty feet down-field. What’s even better: sprinting down to the end zone and making a flying leap to catch the disc and score a point. I. love. it.
A bit of a bummer is how Fontbonne doesn’t have an Ultimate team or any regular pick-up games, but I plan to fix this sad situation. I was going to work on it this semester, but I’m taking 18 hours and right now my life is a hectic mess of equations, paragraphs, and programs, and I can’t take on any extra planning.
Next semester, though…
