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!

Frisbee- 17 people, my team had 2 subs. Nice temps, sunny, a little breezy from one endzone to the other. The other team was stacked with throwers/speed (they had Verdin, Benson, Kevin, Claire, Graham, Matt Page, Julian, Travis, my team was Matt Henry, Alex, Tom, Adrian, Scott, Clay, Dave, Draper, me). I quickly discovered that my throws were doing great today- I had a bunch of throws that snuck by the defense, almost everything was on target whether short or long, and only a couple bad throws. No drops, pretty good defense, too. My team was getting whupped during the warmup (I think the other team scored 6 of the first 7). We started playing better and won 5-2 at the end. It was so nice to be able to rely on my throws and feel like I played really well for the first time in 2 or 3 weeks. Fun day, though 2 subs is too many.

Lunch- in all the years of frisbee, there's never been a day-before-Thanksgiving day, but we had enough say they would come to play. I was at home but my wife and I both went. There were 3 kids and another wife there, too. 13 people. First game was tied 3-3 before my team lost 5-3, second game my team won 3-2, with Marci catching the winning point. Fun time. She said she enjoyed it more than expected and the people were nicer than expected. I played well again, pretty good throws.
