betsy just got back from china's number one frisbee paradise as voted on by frisbee players from beijing that made the right decision this weekend.
for those of you who stayed in beijing, shame on you! you had the chance to get away from the dirty, cold, and traffic congested environs of sandy. instead, you choose to save a few kuai by declaring yourself forever lame. i hope you are happy with yourselves.
now when michael chahtiahohihagioan mentions the swedes, you'll have no idea what he was talking about.
WEEKLY ITEM #1: The Weekly Schedule
Every Wednesday, Pick Up, 7-9, BCIS
Every Sunday, Big Brother Practice, 2-5, Dulwich
if you have questions about where frisbee is, when it happens, how to get there, how to support my frisbee habit when you have three illigetimate children you have to support in wudaokou, or just need a person to talk to, contact alicia at 1371 803 4487, preferably after 11 pm, because she has a very busy work schedule. during this phone call, don't mention tao, an episode in her life she would rather forget, as would the rest of us.
MEGA lunch time poll:
which of the following people had the best excuse for missing the kunming hat tournament:
a) joseph "mini-hulk" pellicano: not allowed back in the province after last year's tournament.
b) hsing-hui: spent weekend in a dark room, wearing all black, listening to the twilight soundtrack
c) ace: if you had to spend most of your time with kevin, you would need a break too
d) sandy: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (edited, because gareth doesn't know)
e) babygirl: he went to boracay instead (a no brainer, really, no matter what doc says)
f) ken su; really wanted to have a chance to play with everyone from beijing on one team, but then at the last minute realized it was a hat tournament
g) patrick li: thought it was the chengdu hat tournament this weekend, but at least got to eat a lot of good sichuan food.
h) mike shyu: busy working on baby number 2
i) matt flynn: you realize i left beijing over five years ago? but if you have any complaints about the way this email is written, please send them to mabfl...@gmail.com
j) aaron goldblatt: too busy crafting a buzz response that wouldn't be shouted down by the entire frisbeee community. spent most of the weekend staring at a blank page
k) michelle tang: you realize doc lives there, right?
l) alicia: was planning on going, but then nads decided not to go, and those two are inseparable now

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 swedish women everywhere, for making michael chahdifhoaitahfiahofan's weekend so fantastic
a call out to kevin, tao, and jim, for ruining michael's fun
a shout out to beijing, for winning the party both friday and saturday night, though to tell the truth, the competition was rather poor.
a call out to beijing, for having such crappy weather and not having free grass fields for pick up three times a week. and a double call out to doc, for living in kunming and preventing betsy from moving there. why does life have to be so unfair.
a shout out to snow, which fell over the weekend while we were all gone. thank you snow.
a call out to donald, who refuses to pay to fly his lovely girlfriend to ultimate tournaments, even though it's the most important thing in the world to her, and she would do anything for him because she loves him and yet he begrudges her even a little bit of fun while he's not there. well, shame on you donald. and btw, helen doesn't have to go all the way to kunming to have fun. she's having plenty of fun in beijing, doing body shots off of michael chaihfgiaohfiaoan's chest.
a call out to shanghai ultimate, for only sending two people from shanghai to the kunming hat, one of whom was not really from shanghai, and the other of whom was alec.
WEEKLY RUMOR THAT MUST BE TRUE: Betsy understands that a certain beijing ultimate veteran held hands all weekend in kunming with a beautiful beijing ultimate newcomer who he is particularly smitten by. the two lovebirds used the excuse of being away from beijing and being extremely inebriated to consummate their affair in what will be remembered by both of them as the most romantic evening of their lives. betsy wishes the two of them many more magical evenings to come. congratulations jim and michael chaifohaifaoifiaoken!
which brings us finally to your moment of zen:catch you on the field,
