Warming up

We got up early this morning -- well, the regular time for a weekday but a little brutal for a weekend -- to drive out to Deerfield, Massachusetts for the third Ultimate tournament of the season. Too many kids on the team (and their parents?!?) feel okay about disregarding the expectation at the start of the season -- being on the A team is supposed to mean that you're committing to playing the weekend tournaments. So they always end up short-handed, which makes having to play a full day of games all the harder, given how few subs they have. But even though the day started with two tough losses, our crew kept up their good cheer and great sportsmanship; they won their last two games and -- most importantly -- game home with the Spirit Award on the day.

A photo a day over at Chicken Blog, too.
