Travis Smith: my resume, bio and photos back to the main blog page
Tracker Pixel for Entry

With Spring finally here, the outdoors has become ‘real’ again.  So I’m interested in playing Ultimate this season.

Yesterday was the first day of registration for individuals, near as I can tell from the site, which is reather nicely constructed techncially, but fails to answer my basic questions, such as, where are the fields, what does a beginner need to know, how do I get put on a team, etc. etc.

So, I’m taking it to the Internet.  If anyone has a team that I’d fit in on, please let me know how to go about joining it.  Help!

As far as being a player: I used to play a hell of a lot—several times a week, but never in a league.  I haven’t played for years and I’m fairly out of shape.  I am fairly persistant, and I’m totally good at giving the evil eye to other team when necessary.  I also promise not to pee in the bushes; I’m not just bringing that up for no reason: I understand this has been a bit of an issue at some fields last year.

So, let me know if your team has an opening, and plays on Monday, Tuesday or Thursdays.  Thanks!

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

I've got a standing offer from a friend that plays on a very open and beginner friendly team...I'll email her and get the details again.

My friend Eric Baron is the captain of the East Van Halen team, and they play on Thursday evenings. They're very open and beginer friendly too.

I want Travis to get a team, so that I can sub for it or play along side him in all our mediocre glory.

East Van Halen may not qualify as entirely beginners, but they're certainly not expert. I see they finished 5-3 in Div 6 (of seven divisions) last summer. Plus, they wear gnarly black rock t-shirts.

Dude, you're listening to a Jefferson Starship retrospective? Couldn't you at least listen to Jefferson Airplane?

Both offers sound nice. Please let me know how to get in touch with the team captains or whatever I need to do next...

A friend of mine's on 2 or 3 teams, at reportedly varied levels of intensity. I can put her in touch with you if you're still looking.

Thanks for the offer, Steena.

Unless things go badly wrong (and ha ha why would they) I think I'll be joining the Eat Van Halen team recommended by Rachael.

Oops, I mean the EAST Van Halen team. Sorry about the sudden flashback to that "Alive" movie.
