* discsports: ultimate & disc golf
Sports are cool, but the future (mark my words) is in ultimate frisbee, given its combination of incredible athletic highlight-reel play, self-officiated structure, and mixed-gender play at the highest levels. I’ve done some guest color commentary for the semi-pro AUDL San Jose Spiders game livestreams. During the pandemic, disc golf also exploded in popularity, and I’ve gained a new-found love for it as well.
