The Holy Trinity of Bama Secs will be in Decatur, Alabama, this weekend for Southeast Men’s Regionals.
go fuck yourself hello. Francis plays for SoHo, Rhodie for Jockamo and, as for me, I’ll likely be heckling/drinking/Tweeting/twerking on the Jockamo sideline.
I was just going to drive up to Decatur by myself originally, but I threw out the invite to my team (Hammer Bros.) and filled the car almost immediately. Which got me thinking. There probably will be plenty of other spectators making the trip to Decatur to just watch other people play ultimate. How absurd.
Well, if you’re in that number like me and my BROS, than you should at least know what to watch while in Decatur. Here are my round-by-round suggestions.
Saturday Pre-Quarters (9 a.m.)
Must Watch: Tanasi vs. Cash Crop on Field 8. These two are neck-and-neck in the rankings. Tanasi won the only meeting between these two teams earlier this year back in June. That was a 15-13 game.
Second Choice: Freaks Uv Nature vs. Six Pack on Field 2. Support the Section and all. #teamFreaks
Entertainment Value: Post up between Fields 5 and 6 to watch two local teams at once. Jockamo will be DGAF’ing in jorts while getting dick-stomped by Chain Lightning on Field 5. Meanwhile, Ironmen plays Jollytown Lollipops on Field 6 in a game that should actually be decent.
Saturday Quarters (11 a.m.)
Must Watch: SOHO vs. Omen on Field 3. Is SOHO for real? We’ll find out.
Second Choice: Florida United vs. Cash Crop on Field 7. There also are questions as to whether or not Florida United is for real. Cash Crop could challenge them, but they’d need to be much improved from the last time these two teams played in June (13-3 loss to Florida United in the Semis at Old Dominion Qualifier).
Entertainment Value: Finish that beer a JockaBRAH handed you in the first round. Stay on Field 6. Drink more beer. Watch two Section teams, Ironmen and Jockamo, this time against each other! Try to go beer-for-beer with Pickle. Heckle. DRUNK. Success.
Saturday Semis (1 p.m.)
Must Watch: Florida United vs. Chain on Field 5. Big-boy ultimate.
Second Choice: Ring vs. Omen on Field 1. I think Omen knocks off SOHO in the Quarters, but SOHO will get a chance to avenge this loss down the line.
Entertainment Value: SOHO vs. Tanasi on Field 8. Now that Jockamo is
drunk eliminated, enjoy the sobriety of this match-up which should be a really good one. Or, heckle from the sidelines with the rest of the JockaBRAHs.
Saturday Second-Place Bracket (3 p.m.)
Must Watch: SOHO vs. Six Pack on Field 6. Keep the dream alive for the Section!
Second Choice: Freaks vs. Cash Crop on Field 2. Would be nice to see a Freaks-SOHO rematch on Sunday morning, but …
Sunday Second-Place Bracket (9 a.m.)
Must Watch: SOHO vs. Florida United on Field 3. Cheer for the Section!
Second Choice: Cash Crop vs. Omen on Field 2. Just turn around every now and then to check this one out.
Sunday Finals (11 a.m.)
Ring vs. Chain on Field 1. Obviously you should be watching the Finals.
Sunday Second-Place Game (1 p.m.)
Ring vs. Florida United on Field 1. Stay and watch the 2nd-place game, too.
Sunday “Brad Jones Memorial Back Door Game” (3 p.m.)
SOHO vs. Florida United on Field 1. The third and final bid to Nationals up for grabs. SOHO avenges the earlier loss to Omen to reach the back door, but I think Florida United walks away with the bid. Good job, good effort.
