I had a dream. I dreamed my old teammates from Nietzsch Factor, Wesleyan’s men’s Ultimate team, logged on to USA Ultimate’s website. And who should they find on that site but yours truly, who wrote both a preview and a Day 1 recap of the girls’ High School Northeastern Championship that took place this past weekend at Rogers Field in Devens, Mass.

“Goose is writing for USA Ultimate?” my teammates would say. “I remember him. He didn’t even like sports in college. And he sucked at Ultimate!”

Then they’d all read my stories and realize that, while my physical skills may never have reached A-team caliber, my understanding of Ultimate’s language and strategy was always top-notch.

And then they’d email me and say hi. Pretty nice dream, wouldn’t you say?

To learn about the teams, check out my preview. Then find out how they did with my Day 1 recap (for Day 2, check out a recap not written by me). And look for my feature in USA Ultimate Magazine later this summer!
