>>one of the classic Michigan guts teams from the deep past (before my

>>a good name.
team, Paul's Bar, had a few classic (a few nonclassic) matches with the
Humblies. They were based in Ann Arbor, we were based in a UP bar in
Hancock, so we kind of looked at Guts from two different perspectives, if
you know what I mean.
But, we always respected them, and they had some incredibly
talented people--John Sappington being one of the all-time great defensive
players; Jeff Dean making a thumber curve ten feet (honest).
Some of my favorite Guts names were/are: $32.00 Frisbee Team,
Copper Harbor Herring Chokers, Swedetown Sweathogs, Schlitz Malt
***-hers, and lately Smiling Carrots and Blind Mules.
I'd love to hear from anyone else that knew the Guts circuit back
in the 70's.
Also, we are definitely starting a Guts list at my address.
And yes, when we were young and could do both, we used to end Guts
practice with a game of Ultimate.
