Furious George qualified for the Canadian Ultimate Championships today, taking the first bid out of B.C., and the top seed out of the West. We earned the victory in decisive 15-7,15-3,15-3 wins, although not always with the kind of efficient aplomb we are trying to drill into habit. We practiced various iterations of man-to-man and zone defenses that we are cultivating for use in August, and we continue to try to refine our offense into something less like an enthusiastic chaos. The theory is that when the machine is finished, it won’t matter which part we play — it will trundle down the field as designed, as we each do our jobs. That will come; for now though, we have accomplished step one.
