Why Ultimate Frisbee is Awesome-Tastic

Updated on March 27, 2010


This is the first hub I ever wrote. I am keeping the main body of text intact for posterity's sake. I believe my writing has gotten better, and keeping this here, unedited, serves to remind me of that and encourages me to keep striving to write better.

If you want to know how the game of Ultimate works, this hub explains it very well. If you are looking for an extensive guide, Essential Ultimate is the best book on the subject that I have encountered.

Bathing in Awesomeness

Ultimate Frisbee is like taking a bath in awesomness. You grab for the loofah, and guess what? It, too, is made out of pure awesomeness. You scrub, and are exhilarated. How is it possible to be this drenched in awesome?

Okay. I'm a little biased. I admit. But for me Ultimate is a passion that cannot be topped. Every dive for the disc is like entering nirvana. Hang with me for a second, it's not so far-fetched. That moment of total abandon, leaping and grasping and hoping and maybe just maybe CATCHING THE DISC, that moment is perfect. Because there is nothing else in that moment, except perfect concentration.

And in Frisbee, you get to dive all the time. A Muddy mess, I rejoice. If only I could carry that moment with me all the time, in all situations. But then I guess I would be the Buddha. If you have something in your life that provides this sort of moment, hold on to it. Cherish it. For me, it is Ultimate. For you, maybe it's, I dunno, Ice fishing? Macramé?

      I do love me some ultimate. Haven't played in a while, though.
