"we played because it was fun é─ý and we played hard because we wanted respect, and we played fair because we wanted self-respect."

Simply. Awesome.


"What I did not love was participating in a culture of jocks. There was a whole caste of guys who couldné─˘t feel good unless they were putting someone down."

Agree completely with the sentiment. How do I reconcile with a heckling culture that I love?


"When we are at our best, we doné─˘t give a shit that most people doné─˘t understand what we train for. [...] We have the balls to be ourselves."

Much love.

There are lots of these kinds of lines in that article that resonate with why I (still) (try to) play ultimate.

As for the heckling, classic jocks are terrible hecklers as they tend to confuse heckling with mere trash talk.
