U23

U23 Thoughts

Perched above field 3 at York University I had a unique perspective on a number of games at U23 World Championships. In one day I alone I watched, filmed, live streamed, and commented on five games in a row. Plenty of long days also led to a number of thoughts that I’d like to share with you. Firstly, Ultimate is healthy and we should expect great things from our youth. While not everybody was able to make it there were a substantial number of teams from around the world and the growth of Ultimate in South America is a good step forward.

Sidelines 2012 – 02 – 03

Welcome to this SuperBowl edition of Sidelines! But only because the game is Sunday, I predict a boringly efficient game, and I really don’t care which of Tom or Eli gets another ring. Wouldn’t you rather see Ray Lewis and Patrick Willis headlining this game than possibly the frailest quarterbacks around? Anyways, I digress… This week on Sidelines: U23s! The international scene NYNY v Big Brother The AUDL Tom Crawford

In our world

It’s an exciting weekend coming up for us in this part of Ontario as well as in Europe. I am heading to Cleveland No-Surfwith Too Bad. A number of friends (Rahil, Marc, and others) are heading to Northern Flightsin North Bay. We should get a decent look at what’s going on in Ontario Mixed Ultimate based upon weekend results. Hilco is off to UK Tour II (where he’ll encounter an Australian team that’s on a European tour as part of their WUCC experience). More details on this when he returns. A younger group of friends are attending training camp for the Canadian U23 team in Vancouver.

Slow days

It’s been a bit slow around here but you can blame that on the Olympics. Ever since I can remember I’ve been watching the Olympics, trying to attend them, and living for the day when possibly Ultimate can be a part of it. There’s a long way to go before Ultimate will be in the Olympics and that’s another conversation. To make up for the slow days though a few quick updates:
