Unless you play Ultimate, you probably don’t even know what it is. Essentially, it’s Ultimate Frisbee, and although it takes less than a page to explain the rules “ two seven-player teams pass the disc across the field until one catches it in the end zone “ but as befitting only the best sport in the history of humankind (so says author Pasquale Anthony Leonardo), it gets a 134-page guide.
Part how-to and part humor, this sports manual hits all the important parts of the game, like how much beer one can fit in a Frisbee, the act of sideline “depantsing,” and what hairstyles are A-OK for playing (“The full Jewfro is in, but a Half-fro is out”).
Yeah, it’s tongue in cheek. Could you tell?
