So my ultimate Frisbee team is now 0-4 when it comes to the season. We are the only team in Men's league to have not won a game yet.
Last week's game was actually looking promises. We made it to half time with a score of 9-5, but we managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. I could see us falling apart in the second half. The final score was 15-17.
Last night's game started out horribly. We got the first point and never caught up again. At half time, the score was 4-9. We did get it up to 14 before they got to 17, so we did much better in the second half.
Frankly, I'm a little furstrated right now, too. I just don't feel like I contribute much to the games. True, last week I was scored on quite a bit. This week, I managed to not be scored on (even when the other team tried to isolate my guy for an easy score. Yes!), but I also couldn't get open to get the disc. I haven't touched the disc in two weeks, and it is frustrating.
Of course, I'd have more opportunities if I played more. But we have so many guys showing up for games, that I don't feel right about playing more when we are doing so poorly. My standard arguement has always been that I can't make us do any worse than we were doing, but I guess I'm not buying it any more. I wish I were.
I always get like this at some point in the ultimate season, so hopefully I'm hitting bottom now and things will improve for the rest of the summer. We'll see.
