Absolute proof positive that you can get over ANYONE.

I don't even notice all those muscles any more. Who cares whether he threw that straight down the line for an outside-in assist to the back corner? Anyone could do that and look all graceful. It isn't such a big deal.

I'm guessing that you're referring to the dude in the white shirt, cuz he's the one with the frisbee in his hands AND he's got the showy-off muscles. However, the guy in the black shirt is more my type. I'm sure he's got muscles, too -- he's just a bit more modest about showing them off.

I guess what I'm saying is: you sure have a lot of eye candy in your life!

Ultimate tournaments are all eye candy all the time. It is very, very, very nice.

The guy putting the hard mark on Some Guy is Dylan. He's a ferocious defender and goes up like he's on springs.

Some Guy is fiiiiine. Oops, did I say that? I'm going to go, uh, change the baby's diaper or something now.

p.s. I hope the aliens return Chris soon.

Knowing Chris, he's going to LOVE whatever they did to him.

White Shirt's muscles are decent but nowhere near extraordinary. He looks as if he has a low bodyfat percentage - one clear sign is the distinct "V" of his shoulder deltoid - and low bodyfat makes muscles stand out more clearly.

Peter, many women, myself included, prefer definition to bulk.

Yeah. He has a good body. Too bad he apparently doesn't have correspondingly good taste in women :) (is that right?)

Nope. His girlfriend is a cool girl.

I don't think he lifts for muscle or anything. He's just does one million sports all the time.

Plus, he's telegraphing like nobody's business. Eminently blockable.

He doesn't get blocked very much, I tell you!

I'm not seeing it. I think you posted his picture before when you were saying he had hops. We already went over how he doesn't, at least not in the picture you posted, and I said he didn't look that great then.

And, the guy in black, come on. Isn't he a little young? It doesn't look like he has muscle that he's just keeping covered up either. He just doesn't look like he's in very good shape.

Now is hot. If I was a girl, that's who I'd be after.

stupid thing screws up html tags.
Ryan Reynolds is who you should be after.


What's really annoying is it gets it right in preview, then screws it up on post.

Dylan is in his twenties, I'd guess, and that was Quirkybook macking on him, not me.

You don't have to see it, Justin. I don't think he cares if you don't have a crush on him.

Ryan who? What do I care about him? Is he an engineer? Does he have a good forehand? Does he throw deep to women? Is he funny? Pretty face by itself doesn't interest me.

Dylan is in shape enough to sprint and go up for stuff for six straight hours in a row, and then play catch when the finals are over. Can't think how much better shape he should be in.

Then, hook up with the guy in the black shirt, and stop wasting your energy defending the one you're over.

Dude, I'm not hooking up with either. It's just an excuse to put some smut up on my page.

Actually, to me, the most interesting thing in this series of shots is to watch him shift his grip. He's got the disc in both hands for WAY longer than I would have guess, and then he sees his cut, shifts the grip and throws. It's nice to see that so clearly. Also, I was struck by how much he torques his entire torso. His left arm is providing force too, which I wouldn't have guessed.

And it is fun to see him and Dylan waiting to see if the throw was caught.

And ptm, you can just hold your tongue about how he should be already running. It was an assist. If it wasn't caught, there was nothing for him to do.

That's more like it, you should focus all your energy on Ryan Reynolds.

But you didn't tell me why Ryan Reynolds would interest me. Does he have hops? What did he design? What does he think of the Peripheral Canal? How do I know that Ryan Reynolds isn't boring?

Eh, I'm not a handler, so I don't need to pull that move, so I'll let it slide this time.

I agree, it's the holding the disc with both hands that stands out. Did he come from basketball? I've seen a few people use that 2-hand-hold quite effectively to create space as they pivot, but haven't been able to make much use of it. Going backhand, I'm better off pivoting conventionally and just getting around/under the marker. Going forehand, either a fake or a quick step out (like your boy in question) gets me enough lateral space. Put another way, I can get enough space in X already, and don't need more space in Y.

There's also something that looks funny in frames (4,3) and (1,4), but it might just be that I haven't seen many stills like this.

Also, I'm pretty excited to be moving somewhere with a big ulty scene. I think I'll probably get back into club next season - I'll need some sport, and there's no mountains in Durham.

Whatever, just go find a picture of him with his shirt off. And, he's an actor, so he's probably rich. So, he could use all of that money to go educate himself in whatever you're interested in, or maybe you could both go get educated in something new and interesting.

Dylan is tireless, gets almost every crappy throw you send him, and I keep not recognizing him since he cut off his hair! Thanks for identifying him for me...
