Mike Friend August 27, 2007 It was just a lazy summer day . I was lying on my couch when all of a sudden I got a phone call from my good friend John . With a quiet “Hello . I answered my phone .

My excitement started to build because I knew in about a half hour I would be playing Ultimate Frisbee with some of my closest friends . It was no longer a lazy summer day .

The whole group was just tossing the Frisbee around while they waited for me . We picked teams using the old school yard method . I was Captain of one team . I picked John as my first choice because he is big and has a good arm for the “quarterback” position . I’m really fast and usually play receiver . Each team headed to their respective end of the soccer field and the game began! My team received the throw-off . We caught the Frisbee and started to advance down the field . One of my teammates threw it as hard as he could to me while I was standing in the end zone . I caught it and we went up by one point . Now, it was our turn to throw-off to the other team
