Brown is Cool

The "I burned my tongue" excuse will no longer be accepted for missing games or pickup. A nifty idea similar to the Hypercolor fad & Ultra-Star Disc (changes color).

This innovative lid alerts consumers their hot beverage may be too hot by changing from a [brown] color to a bright red when the lid is applied.

How it Works: Manufactured with a food grade compliant color-changing additive, when cold, the lid is a regular [brown] color.
When HOT, the lid turns red to remind customers to be careful.
As the drink COOLS, the color of the lid changes back to the regular [brown] color.

Smart choice in sports (you already knew that)! Andrew forwarded this link sometime last year. After reading the article a 6th time, I finally understood it.

The Ultimate Mystery: Popular Sport Beats SATs at Ranking Universities Academically
August 31, 2006

A study being released September 1 of all private national universities shows that their ranking in Ultimate Frisbee edges out both SATs and grades as a predictor of academic performance! Those ranked in the top half for Ultimate have a graduation rate of over 85%, while those in the bottom half just 60%. The top seven have nearly as many Rhodes scholars and Marshall scholars as all others combined.

!Extreme! Frisbee

Definitely not code per UPA Disc Standards.

Students Played “Frisbee” with Land Mine

“Two Swiss students on holiday played frisbee with an object they found on a beach unaware it was a live land mine. Lukas Aider, 20, and Christoph Kurz, 19, took a plunge in the Danube river in Budapest when they found the mine and began their potentially lethal game. A lifeguard watching stopped them and immediately called the police. A bomb squad then arrived to make safe what turned out to be an old Soviet 6 kilogrammes anti-tank mine.”

Ode to Kelly

Sludge was super lucky to have Lady Luck for the past seasons. Everyone has their own way of saying goodbye, like:
Kelly + Doug...Sitting in a Tree,

Bucci has a more creative way of honoring Kelly:
An Ode to Kelly
Kelly oh why do you desert us so?
We didn't step on your finger and break it yo!

Love, love takes you away.
Why Couldn't Sludge let Cutie Dougie play?
(I know I know too many boys -- I am taking "ode" license here.)

Could you reconsider? Maybe once in a while?
What will Sludge do without your fashion style?

I hope Absinthe Minded folks aren't prone to rants--
And really appreciate the "party in your pants".

So good luck with your future frisbee career
I dread the day you score in the end zone while I am left looking at your rear.

Make a splash with the CHaptain in this mandatory Training Camp session. Knowing the words to the summer hit "Spider Pig" is recommended.

Fall Season Campaigning

Charlie started campaigning with the latest slogan "Give-Me-Your-Contact-Info-&-Get-in-Shape."
Not exactly as catchy as O-bama '0-8.
And not very specific about the shape he wants.

Manuel Uribe, 41 [?Sludge's age mean?], is a 1,234 lbs human (fatso).

Bad News: MU is the World's Fattest Man!
Good News: MU is gonna lose 440 pounds giving him the honor of the *really*really*really* grotesquely fat guy who skipped a Sludgefest lost the most weight.

Spider Pig

***[Potential] Spoiler Alert***
If you plan to see The Simpsons: The Movie, you may not want to click on the very tempting right arrow button below to watch the Spider Pig video (0:27). I am fully aware it's only one click away 2 inches down. OK, just click it already!

Andrew, Michael, Matthew & Charlie previewed the movie for Sludge audiences last Friday & happily walked away with a new favorite tune. You'll hafta click on the above vid to understand. If you need more incentive to go the FLICK, there were at least 2 scenes that featured a flying disc.

Amy, Matthew & Meg sandily participated in the 15th Annual WildWood Beach Ultimate Tournament on July 28-29, 2007. One could say they were practicing their beach utly skills before SludgeOBX 2007. Not that they need it.

Sludge on the Beach(SOB) HR Huckenstuff (Amy & Matthew's squad) brought home some hardware after winning the Bottom-of-the-Beer-Bracket Championship!

Matthew is currently recruiting for next year hoping SOB will make return in 2008.

Breaking News

Again with a HIPAA violation, Sludge's team doctor diagnosed: Recent Xrays revealed Michael incurred a chipped bone on his lower shin bone. The injury occured from a defensive point block in the endzone during a non-sanctioned Sludge pickup game. Out 4 - 12 weeks without the need for surgery....yeah!

The other good news is Michael does not usually use his feets to typeup the SLOG, therefore no changes are expected online.
UPDATE 09.06.07: DOC says ANKLE cleared to do more than walk & bike.
PT says: ANKLE needs 2-3 more weeks.
Injured Person say: Leaving soon for Asheville, NC to do a hiking/backpacking vacation [READ: rehab].
