“After I graduated from college, I set about becoming a writer and playing ultimate frisbee. And I kept doing those things for about 15 years. I wrote about a lot of thingsâ€”I wrote about my dadâ€™s death, I wrote about the natural worldâ€”but it never really occurred to me to write about ultimate.

And I would go back in a kind of George Plimpton fashion and play with them and write about the season.”
