You know you play too much Ultimate when...

Postby GregS » Sat Sep 01, 2007 1:25 pm

Your Gaia bag holds 12 dry-fit jerseys, 10 pairs of socks, 5 discs, 2 pairs of cleats, and a spare pair of shorts.

More often than not, you can set up a perfectly rectangular field on the first try, without needing to adjust either sideline at all.

You know the size of every field in the city so well that you know how deep the end zones should be in order to get a good balance between them and the "field proper".

You know what "field proper" means.

You see kids jumping out of the left side sliding door of a parked minivan, almost into traffic, and think "Their parents should really make them get out of the home side door instead of the away side."

You arrive at a game and realize that you know the first names of more of your opponents than of your teammates.

Over the summer, you average more than a game a week at Sunnybrook, and play at Vaughan Road Academy at total of 4 times.

You seriously consider joining 4 fall league teams.

You take cleats and a disc with you to work every day just in case

You realize, halfway into the point, that you're on the sideline yelling at a team on the field behind you

You question whether the police officer pulling you over had best perspective

You know all 6 paths to get from the entrance up to the athletic fields at Sunnybrook (and you made the 6th one)

"Force home" is how you get your dog back when he's gotten off his leash

And "force away" is a legitimate way to turn away unwanted advances in the club

You call "huck" when watching football, baseball, or hockey

You ask your friends for disc space when you're in a bad mood

You soft cap house parties at 2:15am (3:15am during Daylight Savings Time)

You've ever bought an ultimate frisbee skills/strategies book

You check the TUC BBS daily for opportunities to sub for another game

Sorry Erick, but in my book, you don't play enough ultimate :)

...you see a commercial for Tarantula footwear and say to yourself "I think they pronounced 'Torontula' wrong".

My own personal experiences...

You start dreaming about that missed D that you should have made.

You have to do laundry daily in order to have something to wear to play.

You drive more often to Downsview/BMO than to work.

You actually start reading that ultimate strategies book you bought five years ago.

You pass up hiking because you're afraid you'll get injured and can't play ultimate the next day.

And my favourite...

You start counting stalls when you're guarding someone in basketball.

You are watching NFL football, the kick returner flubs the kickoff, and you think "turnover"!

You're thinking twice about a $75 purchase but yet spending a small fortune playing on 5 fall/winter indoor teams.

Your access to ultimate is a major qualifier in your university considerations for next year.

You start wishing you could just drop everything and major in ultimate.

...you read posts like the one quoted above and wish ultimate was offered at work like it is at Universities.
