ultimate cell phone frisbee.

today was the second time i've played ultimate frisbee in the past couple of weeks for the first time in years and years. i'm horribly out of shape for it, but it's so much fun. i played for about 2.5 hours, and i'm dead beat tired.

. the last drive of the day was a fantastic one because i caught it in the end zone while i was on the phone.

at the beginning of the drive, katie called me, and i figured it was to try to get some food. i was almsot done with the ultimate frisbee game as i was super tired out, so i wanted to make sure i caught her before she maybe decided to leave the campus area.

so i answered the phone as the frisbee was thrown to our side, and i sort of started trotting ahead of my team of players. the conversation between me and katie went something like, "what are you doing? i'm playing ultimate frisbee right now. Where? at hayward field.... where are you?"

in the middle of this, the frisbee had caught up to where i was with one of my teammates pretty close to behind me. I started running towards the end zone and i was wide open, so my teammate threw the frisbee towards where i was running.

one or two of the opposing players was bearing down on me, but the frisbee was coming right to me easily. I wanted to make sure i got the catch, so i told katie, "hold on a sec," took the phone away from my ear, caught the frisbee in the end zone, and then got back on the phone and asked, "are you still there?" all in the span of under 3 seconds.

it was an awesome way to end the session.

it was cold out there, though, and the vigor of it all combined with the weather kicked in my asthma a little, which i haven't had to deal with in a little while. i don't really remember where my asthma pills are, so i might just try to deal with it as it's not too bad and taking a shower will help.

good times. and josh and i (trunks josh) make a good pair on a team.

i need to learn how to throw a frisbee better, though. i do finie in a casual circle, but under fast-paced presusure, i lose my accuracy and technique quite a bit. it might be time to treat frisbee throwing more as something to improve as opposed to something merely to enjoy.

hell yeah we do!

sometimes when i play for extended periods of time like that my asthma starts bothering me too, i should probably start bringing an inhaler with me..

Do you have an albuterol inhaler for times when your asthma kicks in like that?

i used to keep one on me, but i stopped. partially because they're pricey, and my need for them was so infrequent and they would usually break down due to faulty design before i got good use out of them.

asthma pills aren't as immediately effective, but they usually get the job done if it really is just simple asthma after a half hour. my mom was also tellng me something about how the pills are better because you don't rely upon the inhaler as much as your body becomes more dependent on it, but i'm not sure how true that is. i'd have to defer to your expertise on that sort of matter.
