Ultimate Beginning

Sunday January 13, 2008
11AM Pick-up game
Danehy Field, Cambridge, MA
Weather: 45 F, Partly cloudy
Field: turf, dry.
Perfect conditions for Ultimate.

I don't usually play a weekend ultimate frisbee game during the winter, but today was an exception. There is a pick-up group that periodically plays in Arlington or Cambridge that I've played with a few times in the past, but my schedule doesn't usually fit. I am, however, on the email list and noticed a swarm of emails expressing commitment to an 11AM game at Danehy Field in Cambridge. Having missed the lunchtime Burlington game on Friday due to unplayable field conditions, and with a Nor'easter on the way tomorrow, I couldn't resist. I zipped over to the field this morning, where there was at least a 20 person turnout. The game lasted until about 2pm and it was the longest game I've played in a while.

So there you have it. It isn't much, but this post marks the Beginning of this Ultimate blog. While not exclusive, a major trend for this blog will be to track every instance that I step out onto a field to play Ultimate Frisbee. It turns out that this is a lot. Why am I doing this, you ask? Just for fun.

Ultimate Statistics (since January 2008):
Total Games Played: 1
Total Hours Played: 3
