That place was awesome.

Yes, both [1, 2] of them.

The tournament was fun too.

First Round Byes on Both Days made for Late Nights.

Which is good.

4-0 on the Day 1 over Drexel Spitfire, Wiretap, Old Sag and Above and Beyond. Wiretap was up at half. Everyone else was down at half.

3-0 on Day 2 over Red Hook, Wiretap and Swarthmore Alums(+).

Pike has won all odd-numbered Beth Coltman Memorials (03, 05, 07, 09)!!!

Good weekend with good players all: Returners, Not-yet-Pikes and Ghost of Pikes-Past.

This season is shaping up entirely differently than last season, thus far. Perhaps we won't lose 17 players? That would be sweet.

Anyway, every single player had good moments and bad. Most more of the former than the latter.

While I Prefer a Dubbel...

Fools Fest was fun

much in the way Kaimana, Mars... and whatever other 3-day Ultimate tournaments with ample beer and competition I'm forgetting are fun.

Played mixed with Stimulus Package (Puppet Regime+Some PoNY+other). Two losses on the weekend. One avenged in quarters against Lefty Loosy (NC). The other handed out by eventual champs The Way of the Jackalope (Various) to the tune of 15-11. Jackalope was definitely the scariest of the tights teams on the weekend.

For everyone who looks at me funny when I drink beer while playing, I submit to you Spaten. (Optimator is great if you love dark beer. Go for the premium lager if you like lighter beer.)

Then again, I didn't need to hear it from someone else that beer is my drink.
