WEEK IN REVIEW: The best jersey design. Ever

As a group of Beijingers prepare to merge with a handful of Shanghainese to form the China United Ultimate Party (with its Soviet-style acronym CUUP) for Singapore Open, we've been literally devoting dozens of hours per day on everything from jerseys to, well... jerseys. Witness Kevin Reitz's work today, which will serve as our PICTURES OF THE WEEK:

The scarlet strumpet: worth clicking on for enlargement.

The plan is to put those designs on both jerseys, one dark and one light. Who wouldn't want to buy extras?


Every time I think Betsy's reached her peak, she just keeps getting better. Yet again, she wins this week's Post of the Week honors. From 7/15/09:

beijing ultimate summer leaguers,

betsy was delighted with the attendance at busl two thousand nine week one. new faces, fresh talent, and cagey veterans all turned out to ensure tao’s team lost their first match of the season. betsy sends heartfelt thanks out to everyone for smacking the humble into him, and right quick like.

WEEKLY ITEM #1: The Weekly Schedule

Every Tuesday, Pick Up, 8-10, Deshengmen

Sunday, Beijing Ultimate Summer League, 3-6, Happy Valley

this week – alchemy vs. hello sexy on field something and on the other field, alf the magic dragon vs. mike and kelly’s team, currently known as a markbreaking huck of staggering genius*.

*registered trademark of betsy’s brain any attempt to use this name for your team will result in swift legal action and a kick to the offenders testicles after which you will be allowed to use the name providing you give credit to betsy during every cheer.

now is the time in the weekly email when betsy gives her weekly shout outs and call outs. remember, you want to get shouted out, but you don't want to get called out.

a shout out to tao. nicely run week one. betsy is feeling an odd sensation. it’s not quite pleasure nor is it gratitude. it might be indigestion.

a call out to dragonflies. please stop d-ing our discs with your lifeblood. it disturbs the women when your dismembered parts are stuck to the disc when they catch it. you are dismissed.

a shout out to candice. betsy is sorry she missed the spicy food extravaganza after Sunday disc. her poop hurts a little just from hearing about it.

a shout out to xiao zhi. betsy offers special thanks for serving up an extra steamy serving of your homegrown humble pie to tao’s team, and right quick like.

a call out to guys night out. admit it, you were thinking about betsy and the rest of the girls and their topless pillow fights the whole time.

a shout out to girls night out. special thanks to helen shyu for the food, ace for the massages and oils, and to steph for supplying all the pillows.

a call out to mike. you know why. just be glad you never joined in the pillow fight and you’d better not post any of those photos.

WEEKLY RUMOR THAT MUST BE TRUE: jeff was seen cheating on joe at kokomo friday night when he thrusted his manliness upon kevin. jeff’s original offer was a pitcher of sangria if kevin danced with a gorgeous stallion of a shirtless manbeast on the dance floor. kevin was just getting his groove on (and shirt off) when jeff junkblocked him. the manbeast was never seen again, although kevin is rumored to return to kokomo each night, just after dusk, longing to rekindle what might have been. also because he’s an alcoholic.

WEEKLY ITEM #3: Lunch time Poll
busl two thousand nine week one was quite possibly the most exciting, most entertaining, and most talked about busl two thousand nine week one in recent memory. which of these is the most likely reason?

a) with doc not playing, all are free to engage in plentiful merriment and mirth making, gleefully brambling through the thick grass, joyously immersed in resplendent, spirited competition amongst fellow players.

b) hello sexy reminded ralph the flacid sliver not to start talking smack before the first game, lest all your hopes and dreams get sideswiped by the humility train.

c) the female domination on alchemy has everyone plotting strategies. so far the most reasonable is to impregnate all their women 6 months ago. now where’d betsy leave her time machine?

d) the team currently known as a markbreaking huck of staggering genius is the last team to decide on a name for themselves. beijing is abuzz with anticipation. will they accept betsy’s decree or will they think up something terrible on their own? only time will tell.

cast your votes!


and finally, your moment of zen…

catch you on the field,


  1. Nice work Kevin. Better Red than Dead.

  2. Not to say Chain was a bad idea, but it got vetoed and CUUP is just on another level of awesomeness...
