Layout!

Layout!

Temperatures soared into the 40s yesterday, a surge of spring-like weather that was a welcome change from the subzero temperatures we'd been having. Despite more than a foot of snow in the backyard, Shaggy Hair Boy and Boy in Black decided to start practicing their Ultimate Frisbee moves. Boy in Black has been out with an injury -- a pulled groin -- so he's taking it slow, gradually getting himself back into shape for the spring season. Shaggy Hair Boy discovered that the soft snow made ideal conditions for practicing the layout, a move in which you slam your body against the ground in order to catch a disc.

Forget the groin injury. Don't they have trouble keepin' their internal organs in the right place if they're always ....FWOOOOMP! layin' out on the ground to catch the disc?

Sheesh. Makes ME sit carefully.

That is a great shot! I never saw ultimate frisbee as a rough sport until now. I think I will stick with just plain ole frisbee.
