I learned about a new sport I had never heard of: "Ultimate"

...I was doing some research on Senator John Ossoff, (because he was mentioned here at DU,
and the story said he and his wife had played this sport in high school.. I didn't know what .."Ultimate"... is and found out it is played with a disc, and seems to be somewhat similar to succor. I still am not sure about the sport, but it seems that it was created in the late 60s. One team throws the disc around and tries to get it in a goal, or past some line or whatever......................

...I might add one more idea: You never know what you are going to learn at Democratic Underground, even if you are not looking for an idea, but you see some term or idea that you have never ever heard of. I had some curiosity about that term, and I found out about a sport I had never, ever heard of or known about.. Yes, there really is a sport called..."Ultimate." ..Maybe you too have never heard of it..

Look up ..."Ultimate The Sport" :Originally.."Ultimate Frisbee" at link below:

Thanks for the timely update though, Stu.

7. It's fun

I played it a few times in college many years ago. It's kind of like soccer with a Frisbee.

11. My son played and it's fun to watch. I had no idea it existed...

until then which was about 7 or 8 years ago. I don't think it's that well known but it might be regional.

I assure you there are plenty of people who have never heard of it!
