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!

It's a nice job if you can get it


Lunch- one of my more frustrating games of frisbee in a long time. My team had more skill. 5v5 first game. My team was up 4-3 but lost 5-4. My catching was fine but had an extreme overabundance of terrible throws. When it was 4-4, I threw away an easy pad then my guy scored. 

2 people left and we played again. My team should have won (Adrian on the other team called us the dream team). The other team was incredibly lucky- their first 3 points were all TERRIBLE hammer throws that somehow were caught. But I was attrocious all around. I had many easy throws that I just terribly mis-fired on. It was comically, frustratingly bad. Multiple throws into the endzone that just stunk. I caught 2 scores and threw another, but that was all. On the last point, I threw a bad pass to an guy cutting into the endzone, we got it back, I had another bad pass into the endzone, we got it back, I was blocked on a throw, then my guy caught the winning pass. We lost 3-5. It was terrible and I'm so frustrated. For the past month, I've been going out early just to practice throwing for 15 minutes and have been taking tutorials. I can throw just fine during warmup, but when the game starts, the only thing I can do is toss up stinky, fly-infested, ugly, twice-eaten, vomit-filled dog poop throws. 

I'm in a bad mood now. I don't mind losing a good game. But when I play this poorly, I'm just pissed at myself. It doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things but it's a bad start to a weekend.
