Dusty Rhodes was, once upon a time, a player for NYU, Pike, and PoNY. In the interests of health and sanity, he tossed that guise aside and now prefers ultimate from the sidelines and stands. You can read his work here at Skyd and there at Major League Ultimate. Most importantly, if you ask nicely, he might still tell you which music is on tap.

When we talk about ultimate, individuals and teams and particular seasons don't matter. What matters is the game.
