Have no fright! Even though Tushar’s checking out the Yoo-Yoo finals, you’ll still be treated to the weekly installment of ultimate hodgepodge (with a Halloween bent).

‘Non-Corporeal Substance’ of the Game

Don’t know all the rules of Ultimate? At a minimum, read and comprehend the Spirit of the Game – the Golden Rule of our beloved sport.

[Official Rules of Ultimate: 11th Edition, Section 1. Introduction, item B]
Spirit of the Game. Ultimate relies upon a spirit of sportsmanship that places the responsibility for fair play on the player. Highly competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of mutual respect among competitors, adherence to the agreed upon rules, or the basic joy of play. Protection of these vital elements serves to eliminate unsportsmanlike conduct from the Ultimate field. Such actions as taunting opposing players, dangerous aggression, belligerent intimidation, intentional infractions, or other ‘win-at-all-costs’ behavior are contrary to the Spirit of the Game and must be avoided by all players.”

ESPooky Connections

Ultimate Results tells a possibly familiar tale…high stall count getting high…tight defense….
You’re starting to get nervous when your eyes lock with your old college roommate. You both know what to do and you let the disc fly with no hesitation. It’s an unorthodox decision but the pass is complete as if you drew it up that way. How many times has something like this happened to you? Do you and your teammates share some sort of extrasensory perception (ESP)? Read More…
