Whore Numbers

Or, Reason # 348 Why Ultimate Frisbee is a Very Strange Sport


I'm told (at least by Sween) that your "whore number" is the number of teams you've played Ultimate Frisbee on. Given the transient nature of the game, and the general spirit that allows for just about anyone to join your team at just about any time (sounds organized, no?), a person can rack up quite a reputation going from team to team, tournament to tournament, and from year to year.

Also, Ultimate tends to bring out the best in people when it comes to naming the team. Usually plays on words (the worst having the word "ultimate" , "disc" or any ultimate lingo in them), often strange or impossible to understand. Perhaps the sport's dope-smokey roots are showing through.

I thus challenge Sween to a duel: give us your whore number along with team names and cities, and I shall do the same. You don't have to have played for a whole season or tournament, but at least a game would be good.

(In vague chronological order)

Toronto:
1. York Environmental Studies team (original!)
2. Nacho Disc
3. Crispy on the Outside

Halifax:
4. Fait Accompli
5. Gregor's Team
6. FOG
7. Disc Wraiths
8. Ganlor
9. Curmudgeons (aka Granny's on Fire)
10. Eclipse
11. Bitter
12. Sugar (guest appearance)
13. Big Purple Dinosaur (or something like that....)
14. Shillelagh
15. S.A.D. Blue
16. Bad Dates
17. Saskatchewan Superheroes
18. Squid
19. Hammer & Suckle
20. Diablos Locos
21. Shazam
22. Population Explosion
23. Drastic Yellow Plastic
24. Scotch
25. Shiver (Me Timbers)
26. Wham-O! (should be between 21 & 22)

All that in about 8 years of ultimate.
