GOP's new heights...

Also, for everyone who enjoyed the drunken emails below--and if you haven't, you should check them out--see how far we've come since the Golden Age of GOP:

Bottom line, GOP, more emails. We don't want this to be our legacy.

Look! A post!

Alright, I'm bored at work for another half an hour, so here's a GOP update!

This year, GOP has been characterized by numbers. There are tons of talented freshmen and sophomores that have been coming for both terms. In the fall, there were an average of about 3.7 healthy returners at every practice or tournament, so everybody got plenty of learning time and is looking sweet for the spring.

In recent new, GOP made a couple of trips south of the Arctic Circle for tournaments. First, a contingent of GOPpers made the 20 hour drive to New Orleans to engage in some good clean American fun at Mardi Gras. Though there was one run-in involving a Guardian Angel who apparently took issue with a rookie GOPper's bared ass, there were no reported arrests, and everyone made it back with at least some of their dignity. As far as frisbee goes, a team of three returners, one alum, and a shit ton of rookies played out of their minds. They were 4-1 on the weekend, beating the heavily favored Texas A&M.

After being back in Northfield for four days, GOP headed off to Sin City. There, we played down to some sub-par competition, but still finished the weekend 7-2. Frisbee aside, the weekend was amazing. The party consisted of a roaming progressive of nearly a thousand frisbee players down the Las Vegas Strip. One rookie landsharked the party; lacking a disc, he took a glowstick instead. The most notable win of the weekend might have been stealing the victory from the Hodags in the CUT v. Wisconsin game. GOP displayed its best heckling skills, including pantsing Hodag/GOPalum Sethmeyer during the intense half-time huddle. Here's a piece of dialog from the sidelines of that game:

Frank McNally: Dude, do you guys have a single creative major on your team?
Hodag on sideline: Huh?
Frank: Like an Art Major or an English major or anything?
Hodag: What?
Frank: That is the single lamest cheer I've ever heard.
[Their cheer consists of yelling "HO-DAGS" to the tune of "AIR-BALL," as if they were trying to discourage their own team.]
Hodag: ... CUT's cheer is lame.
Frank: Yea, we make fun of them, too.
Hodag: ... Shut up!

GOP's next debacle is scheduled for the third week of March when the Returning Champions head back to Folly Beach, SC for spring break. Updates might follow. Maybe.

Also, look at Boris' sweet disc design! That's Odin, the chief god of Norse mythology.

This Blog Sucks


This is stupid. The last update was in freaking March. I'm guessing noone will see this, but I call upon all Goppers to do their duty and post smarmy shit about their training regiment and pictures of themselves playing frisbee. It is our sworn duty to emulate other frisbee teams by looking like d-bags on the internet, so get posting. I'll begin by putting up this photo of the outline of a person laying out.


Sean


P.S. If you are an unemployed Gopper/GOP alum, it is your duty to post TWICE AS HARD.

Summary

It's been a while since the last post so here's an update of the last 5 months or so. Most of GOP got fat and slow over winter break. GOP came back to school and got less fat and slow. GOP went to Vegas to play frisbee and celebrate national forty day. GOP went 7-2 with wins over teams like Gonzaga, Utah, UNLV, and Sand Diego State (check out the pictures!). GOP finished 3rd or 4th in the DII bracket. GOP will travel to Folly Beach, SC for spring break to stay in some beach houses and party with Ivy Leaguers. GOP may play some frisbee against said Ivy Leaguers. Results to come...

Congrats Sethmeyer!

Good news: Seth "Sethmeyer" Meyer '06 is now a member of the Wisconsin Hodags!
Bad news: Seth "Sethmeyer" Meyer '06 is now a member of the Wisconsin Hodags.

Congratulations to our favorite defensive stopper and alcoholic.

GOP in Spain!

GoP, this is Sean! As you can see in the above photo, our name has reached even the balmy shores of Madrid! Our reputation truly precedes us. This obvious plea for GoP in Spain leaves us only one choice: Sweet whirlwind reunion tour through central and western Europe. But not Eastern Europe, haha!

Love Sean

Various

1. Yesterday, GoP defeated St. Olaf's split squads 13-10 and 13-8 respectively. I saw a lot of good things, so let's keep up the great work at practice.

2. Next weekend, GoP will play at Exit 69. This is a great tournament because the competition is good, and we can sleep in our own beds at night. Returners will meet soon to decide who'll join GoP this weekend. Tuesday's practice will be open, but expect Friday's to be closed to only those who are invited.

3. Finally, a gem from Gaetan.

Dearest GoP,

I write to you all at such a late hour and a slightly intoxicated state in order to
convey to you all a night of epic proportions. While many events may have transpired
tonight (sept 30th) I wish to tell you all one story in particular. While this story may
be long and slightly rambling, I trust you will read it. You will not be disappointed.

The charatcers: Myself, Carbomb, Ben Jacoff
Setting: The Rueb

Gaetan, Ben, and Carbomb were enjoying a relaxing, and slightly low-key, night out.
Being 21, we naturally were drawn to Northfield's booming nightlight-hub, the Rueb. As
we are relaxing and taking in the 'atmosphere' present à la rueb, we happen to notice a
large group of cowgirl-themed women enter the bar. It is apparent that this is not the
first establishment they have frequented tonight and two women immediately, for reasons
unbenknowns to myself, sit at our table. Pleasantries are exchanged and we become privy
to the information that, in fact, this is none-other than a bachelorette party. Plot
thickens.

[Fast forward to closing time]

Having meet the majority of the group by now we amble outside without any place to go.
One would guess that the bachelorette party would go its own way and our heros would head
back to their dorms to sleep. This did not happen. Ben Jacoff proceeded to extend an
invitation to bachelorette party. "I have booze at my house, why don't we head there?"
The entire group consults and decideds that this is not a great idea. Three ladies,
however, think otherwise. As the rest of the group enters a taxi and proceed to yell/try
and drag these three rebelious ladies into the taxi, they will have none o fit. Dammit,
these three ladies were going to go get drunk at some college guy's house whether their
friends liked it or not. They march defiantly to Ben's townhouse accompanied by myself,
ben, and the illustrious Carbomb.

[3:00am]

Okay I'm getting tired and while the whole narratyive thing is amusing and all, I'll cut
tot he chase. Bulletpoint style.

-Of three ladies, 1 married with two kids, 1 engaged, another single as far as I could
ascertain. (Coulda been trouble GoP. Coulda been trouble)
-All three live/work in the cities.
-All three ladies 28
-At 3.00am they attempt to go home. All taxis services closed. One suggest just
walking. At this point we say 'eayh go for it' (don't want to have to deal with bities
(sorry jon)). We ask where walking to. They say Dundass (Dundess? how the feckdo you
spell that?). We tell them that is a poor plan.
-Three head out. The one carbomb had been macking on for the entire night (engaged one)
comes back and stops him outside his house. 'I can't walk tonight, could I just stay
here maybe?' Carbomb does honourable thing and sends her backto friends (props CB).
Plus I don't want some fiancé guy hunt me down.

GoP: 1
Bachelorette party: 0

Gaetan.

out.
