As soon as we figure out teams for Ultimate, everyone starts switching shirts, so that one team will be white and the other dark. It's so much easier to think fast in a game if you know who is on your team. Shaggy Hair Boy usually brings the extra shirts we have at home, a pile of black and white. Half the time, they are crumpled and sweaty, but sometimes, if my husband has just done laundry, Shaggy Hair will bring clean, fresh shirts on hangers and hang them from the branch of the tree. "We've got clean shirts!" someone will say gratefully, as players reach up to take the proper colour. It's a luxury to pull on a shirt that still smells sweet.
