DUI 2000

From the brilliance of Dave McGee

Come on everybody, sop sop sopo!

Hey chicks and peeps,

I have to say it again: great weekend everyone! The unveiling of the

Hillary for Senate campaign was a successful one, and a good time was

had by all. Our overall record was 2-5, but what we gained from the

tournament far exceeds what can be judged by a win/loss record. Let me

provide a quick recap, for those who weren't there.

Day 1:

Game 1 vs. Mountain Ultimate Disc

This was a team of energetic and highly spirited kids from Quincy, a

mountain town east of Chico. What they lacked in skill they made up for

with facial hair. They were fun to play, but did not put up much

resistance, and in the end served as a merely a warmup for later


Hillary for Senate: 11

MUD: 0

Game 2 vs. Rippit

Ouch. The quality of opponent rose exponentially for our next game.

Rippit is a veteran team who is a perennial contender at nationals and

went to the semifinals of worlds. They put a zone on us, and we were

never really able to break it. Guess what we'll work on in practice


Hillary: 1

Rippit: 11

Game 3 vs. The Sassy Sassafras Lollipop Experience

After two byes we took on this friendly team from San Francisco. Still

recovery from the spanking in game 2 and still digesting from Chico's

Tecate Grill, we were quickly down 4-0. We started to catch fire on the

defensive end, including several tremendous D's from Wally, and brought

the score back to 5-4 in favor of Sassy. Some more zone took us out of

our game again, and a time cap ended the closely contended game a bit

too early. The post game love-fest was quite fun, although when

reflecting on it later, Joy Miyahira (whose nose comes up to about the

armpit of your average sweaty man) stated, "They smelled. Bad."

Hillary: 5

Sassy: 8

Game 4 vs. Feral Cows, whoops, I mean Snow Leopards

More zone. More turnovers. But there was also a sick layout D from

Danimal Rochberg. And in perhaps our best cheer of the day we opted to

ignore their weak attempt to masquerade as cows, and celebrated their

true guise: that of the snow leopard - lord of the tundra and bearer of

retractable claws.

Hillary: 4

Snow Leopards: 11

Day 2:

Game 1 vs. FlewMona, aka The Skulls

Although we ended pool play at 1-3, we were still in the hunt for the A

bracket. We came out strong and played some of our best ultimate of the

weekend against this team of Yale castaways. Liberated from the curse

of the clipboard, Hillary traded points with this quality team (which

went 3-1 the day before) until the score was knotted at 8-8. The time

cap went on, so the next point would decide it. We sent out a

smothering defensive team, and the Skulls were fortunate to catch some

swilly throws when the stall counts got high. After a questionable foul

call the Skulls finally won it with a half-field hammer to the back of

the endzone. A well-fought game.

Hillary: 8

Skulls: 9

Game 2 vs. MUD (again)

Nothing takes care of the pangs of a close loss like playing these

guys. We relaxed and coasted to an easy victory.

Hillary: a lot

MUD: not so much

Game 3 vs. Nuthin Beats Bacon

This was the semifinals of the B-bracket. All I can say about this game

is that it was a lot of fun, we played hard, and our improvement was

apparent. We led for most of the game, but faded down the stretch. But

we'll be back.

Hillary: 10

Bacon: 13

That was our final game. We then went to cheer for Dan. There is every

reason to be completely and totally excited about where this team is

headed. There was improvement in virtually every game we played. I'm

psyched. You should be too. I have more to say, but this email is

getting too long so I will send another one shortly (lucky you!).

Again, great weekend everyone!
