EYUC 2011

Last week I was in Wroclaw Poland for the 2011 European Youth Ultimate (Frisbee) Championships.  No, I wasn’t competing….  I was coaching.  I was working with my friend Dan on the logistics for the trip, and when we realized that there wasn’t anyone to coach the Girls team, we decided to do it together.  Michal joined us two weeks before the trip.  Together we led Israel Junior Women to a fifth place finish out of nine teams. » Read the rest of this entry «

My last post was very up-beat and happy.  The next day was less so.  In continuing my busy Ultimate Frisbee schedule Saturday I was at the Junior National Team’s practice in Tel Aviv.  It was fun, and I was having a good time working with the kids.  I was starting to get back into a bit of a rhythm and feeling good about my return from injury.  That’s when the fates stepped in and yanked away that fun.  While doing a simple zone-D drill, I was cutting as part of the offense.  Just a simple cut to space and clear out, except for the last time. » Read the rest of this entry «

This is [a slightly edited] letter that I wrote Friday night summarizing an afternoon I spent teaching Ultimate at a boarding school near Acco as part of Ultimate Peace, an initiative to promote cross cultural meetings with Ultimate Frisbee.

Hey gang!

I spent a good part of this week dealing with all sorts of Ultimate related things, but I kept coming back to the same nagging question:  What is the weather going to be like on Friday!  The internet on my phone kept saying rain, even when I checked it repeatedly.  The internet on my computer said differently, but the pessimist in me didn’t want to believe it.  So you can imagine the dismay I felt when I woke up to a text message that Kfar Tavor had canceled partly because of the weather. » Read the rest of this entry «

The Story of Abe’s Left Knee

January 18th, 2011 § Comments Off on The Story of Abe’s Left Knee § permalink

Two weeks ago, I had an MRI on my left knee. I went to the hospital outside Tiberius where the waiting room and administrative desk were in a converted container/trailer. The machine itself was in a truck that seems to be just large enough to fit the machine and not much else. I wonder how Michael Knight could have fit a car and all that equipment into such a narrow space. (Mythbusters proved that the car could go up and down the ramp at speed with no problem) It’s actually not the first time I’ve had an MRI in the back of a truck, but most of the other things you get off the back of a truck are sketchy to say the least. » Read the rest of this entry «
