Personal:

I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

Lunch- it didn't rain too much, so we played frisbee. Upper 50's, overcast, little breeze. 11 people showed up, so my team had the extra player. The other team was stacked and really pushed us around. In the game to 5, they scored, then us, they scored again. Then, with the wind at our back, it took us 5 min or so to finally score- it was brutal. The other team scored 2 quick points so we were down 2-4, even with the extra person. Ouch. We scored, by which time they were exhausted from the extra running. We got a turnover to tie it 4-4. On the last point, I intercepted a pass, then immediately threw a terrible pass right by their endzone. Fortunately, Adrian then threw a bad pass and we got it back, but Scott had to throw a miracle pass over 3 defenders right to Dave. From there, we worked it down for the winning score. Considering we had an extra person, they did awesome. Teams were me, Scott, Elisha, Dave, JP, Travis against Sam, Adrian, Verdin, Kevin, and new guy Nick (who is super fast, aggressive, and good catcher). Kevin knocked me down once with a brutal bicep to the head but I'm ok. Good, tiring game.
