Well, it's time to say goodbye to Blogspot. The site as served us well the past few years, but we have grown as a community and it's time to move on. Thanks for the good times, You will be missed...

To check out the new site (which features team pages of Birmingham's traveling teams, a separate league page for all of the important league info, a detailed map listing the playing fields and a brand new forum for all our trash talk, mvp discussions and spam) simply point your browser to

There is still a lot of work to be done, so be careful around all the wet paint. But hopefully it will be a better experience for us all.

ALSO, it is time to start Winter League! Registration is currently open, so get your credit cards ready because this year, if you don't pay at signup, you won't be registered.

Winter League Games Poll

Recently we have been discussing the possibility of moving our winter league games from Sunday afternoon to Thursday evening. Some have stated that this would be a more convenient time for them. Others have said that it may be too cold on Thursday nights in January. While still others have remained neutral and want to see the two opinionated parties have a fight to the death to determine the fate of us all.

In order to appease everyone, we've decided to do this democratically. If you feel strongly one way or the other, please vote in the poll in the right sidebar.

Actually, we're currently exploring all possibilities and other considerations (such as field availability) might affect when we play as well. However, please feel free to let your voice be heard.

The Final Countdown!

We're leaving together
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back
To earth, who can tell?
I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground
Will things ever be the same again?

It's the final countdown...
The final countdown!

Here are the brackets and schedule for the End of Summer Tourney. Get there on time! Bring water, sunscreen, and your A-game!

Blue-Tang Clan wins Mid-Summer Tourney

This past Saturday the Blue-Tang Clan rose from their relative obscurity of a 4-6 season to claim the title of Mid-Summer Champs.

Their day started in a pool with two teams that had previously defeated them, SPF-175 and Mean HO Green. Knowing that the only way to the bracket was to win every game, Blue-Tang took early leads in their pool play games but allowed each opponent to come back and reach universal game point. For three consecutive games they maintained their composure and finished off the opposition by the slimmest of margins.

In the semis, Blue-Tang faced Chilipeno for the first time this season. Being forewarned about the Oaks-to-Oaks connection, the blue team played aggressive defense and managed to win their first game of the day by more than one point.

The finals pitted them against Mike Murphy's Huckamole. By this time the sun was out and it was HOT. Both teams used their share of timeouts and tried their best to play smart, conservative Ultimate. Huckamole took an early lead and maintained it all the way to a 10-7 game point. However, Blue-Tang miraculously managed to get two breaks back and tie it at 10-10. Needing to win by two, the game went into overtime. After a little back and forth, Blue-Tang took their first lead of the game at 12-11. Then, thanks to a big D by Wes Bullock, the blue team marched it down the field decisively for the score; Blue-Tang Clan over Huckamole 13-11.

The most noteworthy performances of the day have to go to Blue-Tang's three women. They played a short rotation through 5 games in some of the hottest conditions Talladega has to offer.

Congrats Blue-Tang Clan.
