So much pickup over the years. Barefoot, cleats, tennis shoes, made up rules, improvisation
Beach ultimate: Sandblast + Lei Out! (blisters like no one should ever feel)
I’ve been to Radicals games. This is a lot for someone who doesn’t like watching sports
Claim to fame: I caught a point in my first game ever, and then someone stripped the disc. I was so disappointed and didn’t know the rules yet
