The Bungie Seven

A Sports Anomaly

The tale begins where all great stories do. On the field of battle.
Instead of discarded spaulders betwixt spears, swords and crudely removed limbs, this skirmish involved pastel Umbros, too-tight T-shirts, and faux-surly delicates in a dalliance, whipping a disc through rain-blotted Seattle air.
"Ultimate Frisbee is the sport of Champions." Or rather, the Bungie Seven are the "champions" of a local unofficial Kirkland Ultimate Frisbee pick-up league.

Meet the Bungie Seven

Young team captain Jon, the leggy sparkplug and catalyst

Cagey veteran, Eamon, dips his hips when he chucks the disc

Upstart fresh-face, Niles, don’t let the foppish waves fool you

Lithe and lean, Aaron, artful in his guided trajectory

“The Mikes,” skyward reaching twins of toss

Jump up, Chuck, leap like you still wear youth’s crown

And now, for the rest of the Weekly Update…

Take a Picture

This weekend at PAX we’re lifting the veil on Assembly, the map previously known as Purple Reign. For the folks who are unable to make it to Seattle to play it themselves, take a gander (engorged versions here):

Let's head off the inevitable influx of questions at the proverbial pass: We currently have no information on how or when Assembly will be made available. When we know, we'll let you know. We promise.
