This year we have a bunch of teams making some noise. TBD at 4-0, Lunch Break at 3-1 and the Misfits, this year’s free agent team, at 3-1 being a few of them. But let’s not count out Kapow! at 4-1. Kapow! has never had a winning record in their previous four seasons, and they are just two seasons removed from going 1-5 and finishing in last place. Last year they were 3-5 but finished 15th of 16 teams. What a difference a year makes!
And to add to it, last night’s 15-4 win is the second such score of the season. Something different is happening here, and it’s worth checking out. So let’s go to our first recap of the night, from Kapow’s Lance Iliev:
I played hooky from Ultimate Monday night and attended the first day of school instead.
Things learned at school:
1) Some math stuff
2) One of my professors worked on the Dilly Dilly campaign
Things I learned after school:
Dilly Dilly, winter league. Dilly Dilly.
Did your professor come up with Dilly Dilly? And I’m surprised this is the first use of it in a recap actually.
Winter League recaps. Written with no corn syrup.
And what would Tarmac recaps be without a video from Sonja Roden. I think half of my Youtube Channel is Sonja. And I’m totally cool with it. So here she is:
Blame it on the Rain, yeah yeah
Yeah, that’s the ticket…or blame it on our inability to catch the disc. Wherever we place the blame, our 15-12 streak has come to an end.
The rains came and we all got very wet. I added a little clip of wet people being wet. Thankfully Kapow shared their easy-up with us! They are good people, we should keep them around. Also they take their stats very seriously, recording every throw and catch while we’re over here with the “someone threw to someone” record of our game. It was a fun game and quite honestly more interesting than the super bowl. As for actual game stuff, it started out fine. We were within a couple points and then we dropped the disc a lot and threw it in ways that weren’t successful. Kapow had a definite height advantage over us and properly used said advantage. We ran some zone which made them have to work it around a lot more but didn’t stop them scoring.
I could probably come up with more things to say about the game but I’m distracted right now listening to Step In Time and doing the choreography in my head and I’m feeling the need to get up and dance around the office so I’m gonna go do that instead. Let’s be honest none of y’all click on my recap expecting to get actual information about the game anyway.
Fun fact, Step In Time is 8 minutes and 44 seconds long.
Completely infallible logic on how Kapow! and Tarmac are better than the Patriots and Rams. I am giving a standing ovation to that one.
I also like how Sonja turns her recaps into her own personal karaoke.
Total aside. But I was reminded by seeing Tarmac’s logo of the airplane and Sonja’s rain recap. My airplane was hit by lightning this weekend. (Actually, that’s not true. The airplane I was SUPPOSED to be on was hit by lightning this weekend right before we got on it. They had to shut it down and we got moved to another plane. I’m told it was in the news. That’s bonkers.)
