We're pretty stoked this summer to be on an ultimate frisbee league team with the Los Angeles Organization of Ultimate Teams, or LAOUT (get it? LAyout?). This week was the first week for the summer league where games are played at Balboa Park in Encino and Oakwood Park in Venice.

It's fascinating to see a group of strangers from all over LA get together, play, win (of course, go Team Tan!) and hang out after at a bar to hear their stories. Like the the accountant from Canyon Country who is an Amazon.com top 100 reviewer or the guy who has a job to go to 3-5 indie rock concerts a week and buy people drinks (jealous now?).

It was also funny when the bouncer at the Robin Hood British Pub & Restaurant in Sherman Oaks thought we were ultimate fighters. Nice.
