With all of our enthusiasm for tossing the Frisbee around lately, we were super excited when an ultimate
Team huddle pre-game - they were already super sweaty from warming up.
Me and Mick before the game. He's just a smidge taller than me.
Waiting for the pull, which is kind of like the kickoff in football.
This is just after their team did the pull - the player on the left threw the disc, which went the length of a football field.
Action shot of Mick making a catch mid-air! It was pretty entertaining to watch him guard shorter players - they all jump, but he has a nice advantage.
Close to the end of the game, we were watching a play when we heard a loud THWACK - at first, we saw a player standing up downfield, holding the disc - he'd made the catch. But then we realized that two players were laying on the field, and that thwacking noise had been the sound of their heads colliding! From the sidelines we could see them bleeding; it was pretty scary to see them lying there until both moved their arms and legs. Eventually they both walked off of the field; I'm not sure what happened to the player from the other team, but the guy from Mick's team was driven to the local ER, where he received 23 stitches! I had already decided that this game was too intense for me to play, but yikes, seeing that injury sealed the deal. I'll stick to spectating, and gently tossing the Frisbee with my fellow Renegades.
After the game - Mick made a couple of sliding catches so his shirt was a little dirty.
We really enjoyed watching the game, and are already planning a road trip to Austin next spring to watch Mick play on his professional team...another Renegade adventure is in the works!
We aren't running until Sunday because tomorrow is Cary's baby shower! Not only is the time for us to meet Baby Pumpkin Muffin getting closer, but this also means that next week I'll be able to show you some finished knitting projects, yay!
Have a great weekend!
