No time to workout the past two days. Today was frisbee in a mist/drizzle. 5v5, other team had sub. My team struggled at the start of warmup but then figured it out. Other team scored first, then my team scored straight for 5-1 win. Then we lost 1-3.

Frisbee today was nuts- we had 20 people, so each team had 3 subs. That really sucks, too many people, not enough playing. Plus Jeff split the teams unevenly (I told him so right away). It was windy and cold, and my team had the newer players who generally were not as good. And so, for the second time ever since I've been keeping track, my team lost 0-5. Ouch. It was rough. We played some more half-hearted games, and my team won 3-1 then lost 1-3.

An hour elliptical and 4 miles running, watching World Cup soccer. Enjoyable game- I like the looseness of the 3rd place game where the teams want to win but don't have the pressure of the title game. I've enjoyed watching most of the games.

My little D2 college, Colorado School of Mines, was terrible at football when I was there, usually winning 1-2 games per season and often losing 80-7. But now they are good and are in the D2 championship game today at 1 pm on ESPN U. Pretty cool. Of course, they are down 20-0 at halftime, so that's not desireable.

5v5 frisbee. My team was slower and was getting beat in warmup. We changed to zone, and won 5-2 and 3-1.

Merry Christmas tomorrow to all! There's no snow here but the temp this morning was 9 deg with windchill of -7 deg. I think that's the coldest I've ever seen it in SC.

I'd say it was just about a perfect evening of frisbee. 5v5 with no subs, which is my favorite. Temps were good, about 50 deg with a little breeze. My team was slightly outplayed in warmup but received the first kickoff. We traded points till it was 3-3. The other team broke my team to go up 4-3, then my team scored 2 straight for the win. It was really a game of possession- minimal turnovers. In fact, I think the only time my team broke the others was on the very last point, when they dropped a short pass near their own end zone. My team won the second game 3-1, with all 3 points being scored by Noah.

Overall frisbee update. I've been playing with my work group regularly since 2015, and started keeping ever score in June 2016. Since then, I've played 756 games over 531 days, with a winning percent of 61.5%. Pretty good. My favorite stat is that I'm 18-2 in games where it was a 5-0 shutout.
