Greytest Team Ever vs Red Wedding
Grey is embattled in a tight race finish top 2 and secure a 1st round bye for playoffs. Red Wedding is just plain out for blood, looking to salvage a season, find their chemistry and ready to make some upsets during the post season. It’s a classic tale of 2 teams. Grey has height, attendance, and the wins; Red is short, savage and hungry to a win. Grey wants the win, Red needs the win. #TeamRed
Prediction: Red Wedding 15, Greytest Team Ever 13
Pumpkin Spice Life vs Fat Jimi & the Backstreet Boyz
Orange owned this match up week 1 but will be without Edwin and Cawley who flew the coop to Colorado. Fat Jimi will be without top draft picks Travis and Robbie. This is really anyones game right here. The late Canes game in the ACC Championship will most likely lead to both teams fielding massive hangovers. In that situation, I believe the green team can hold and handle their liquor better than orange. Advantage green.
Prediction: Fat Jimi & the Backstreet Boyz 14, Pumpkin Spice Life 11
Smirnoff Ice Dragons vs Aquaholics
The last time these 2 teams met it ended on universe. I don’t expect any different in this game of the week. Both teams are playing excellent ultimate and its a coin flip on who’s going to take it. For me personally I just want chaos of 4 teams at 4-2 heading into seeding determinations so I’m rooting for white.
Prediction: Smirnoff Ice Dragons 15, Aquaholics 14
Fat Jimi & the Backstreet Boyz vs Aquaholics
This should be a slugfest clash of the titans type battle. Misha vs Travis, Kumi vs Megan, Looney vs Brad, Rachel vs Rie, Frank vs Mike, Robbie vs the Smiths, Jimi vs Zaxby’s all you can eat chicken tender combo… etc. It’s hard to pick against Misha but I think green pulls it out here. As the season winds down, and with a playoff 1st round bye, I think green turns it on here and shows that the blue team and bleed. Blue has skirted by with 2 universe point wins this season, I think their luck ends here.
Prediction: Fat Jimi & the Backstreet Boyz 15, Aquaholics 13
Red Wedding vs Pumpkin Spice Life
Is this the week the red team puts it together? Playing near savage every game doesn’t help, but it has emboldened the players who do show up with more confidence due to the high touch count every player is forced upon. PSL is just one of those team-centric defensive minded teams that will just wear you down with their faceless army approach. While the odds seem stacked against red, I’m still placing all my chips on red and seeing where the roulette wheel lands.
Prediction: Red Wedding 15, Pumpkin Spice Life 14
Smirnoff Ice Dragons vs Greytest Team Ever
In the game of the week, this is a battle for absolute control of 2nd place. The Ice Dragons come into this game hot looking to rally behind their injured teammate. Corey Whittaker once again proved to be a masterful draft tactician, finding incredible value in players even late into the draft. That depth will hopefully come in handy as they face a hot streaking grey team. This game will prove to be a slugfest for the ages, but I think the Ice Dragons have just a bit more depth at the handler spot and better defenders in the air to take down grey.
Prediction: Smirnoff Ice Dragons 15, Greytest Team Ever 12
Written by: The Three-Cup Raven (Yehuda)
Even though we are in the early weeks of Fall 2017 BUL season, the lord of light has shined his fiery glow upon us all and commanded that we formally complete a write up discussing each Teams Game of Thrones Spirit Characters. I mean….this is “ A game of throws”.
And yes…I said spirit character.
Much like the more common spirit animals, a spirit character is the embodiment of the teams traits and skill sets. Now I’ve have spent countless hours praying to the old gods and the new gods trying to find the perfect fit for each team, so here we go.
Green vs. White
Fat Jimi and the Backstreet Boyz
Spirit Character– Petyr Baelish “Littlefinger”
Smirnoff Ice Dragons
Spirit Character– The Targaryens
Prediction– Fire definitely wins this battle as white will rely on a collective effort to put away green. 15-13
Red vs. Grey
Spirit Characters– The Lannisters
Greyest team ever
Captains– Elijah and Stacy
Spirit Characters– The Greyjoys
Prediction– Redemption for poor Theon won’t come today as Red will handle their business on the battlefield. 15-12
Pumpkin Spice Life
Captains– Lian and Tony
Spirit Characters– The Starks
Spirit Character– Aegon Targaryen/Jon Snow
Prediction– Starks vs.Stark…Jon wins this one, but not without a fight. I smell another win on universe point for blue. 15-14
No game! Pool of water in the middle of wimberly!
Been super busy and sick. League is definitely on tomorrow. Forecast is for rain only on Saturday.
I will get to the fields early Sunday to assess Stevens for the gray/green game. If Stevens is unplayable I will make three 33×100 fields on wimberly. I personally think Stevens will be fine.
Please check the fb, the website and your captains for updates.
Jerseys are in and will be distributed to players who are paid up!

Red Wedding vs. Fat Jimi & the Backstreet Boyz
This will be another slugfest, as both teams are searching for their first win this season. Red Wedding will look to come off a painful universe point loss against Smirnoff Ice Dragons, while spirit captain Loony hopes to keep morale high after his team’s loss to Pumpkin Spice Life. On paper, this matchup seems pretty even. Travis/Langdon, Kumi/Gentry, Robbie/Mckelvey, Jaime/Alissa, Fioramonti/Strutz, and so on…The deciding factor in my opinion is that the Backstreet Boyz will still be missing Fat Jimi, who is in Iceland. Advantage Red.
Prediction: Red Wedding 15, Fat Jimi & the Backstreet Boyz 14
Pumpkin Spice Life vs. Greytest Team Ever
PSL will look to continue their run against the Greytest Team Ever but will encounter some adversity with Grey’s captain and big, Elijah Grady, returning this week. He will no doubt be a tall order to cover, but his penchant for staying behind to handle will mitigate some of the downfield havoc he could cause. The pivotal matchup will be seeing two peerless cutters in Lari and Stacy going head-to-head.
Prediction: Greytest Team Ever 13, Pumpkin Spice Life 11
Aquaholics vs. Smirnoff Ice Dragons
This contest between the two undefeated teams will be the game of the week! Smirnoff Ice Dragons showed that they could dig deep for a comeback universe win against Red Wedding last week. They will need to avoid going in the hole against Aquaholics because that team is relentless. If anyone can slow Mischa down, it’s Jet, and the Florida alum will definitely have his hands full. The dragons will need to be incredibly smart with how they handle their matchups, as this Aquaholics team is deep.
Prediction: Aquaholics 15, Smirnoff Ice Dragons 13
Aquaholics 14, Greytest Team Ever 11
The first games of the BUL fall 2017 season kicked off under clear skies, with occasional gusts of wind and the blistering heat with which every South Florida player is grudgingly familiar. The Aquaholics took an early lead, but the Greytest gave chase, making big plays to stay hot on their hydrophilic heels. The Aquaholics threw many different looks on both O and D, while the Greytest took advantage of the fast break. It was a close half at 8-6, Aquaholics. Throughout the second half, Reeves continued to dominate as a handler, even against the Z. Frank threw some beautiful assists upwind. There was fast and smart cutting by Charlie, great defense and saves by Justin, and big Ds by both Stacy and Megan. In the end, the teams took it to hard cap, where Aquaholics won 14-11. Let’s hope this competitive, high-spirited game is an indication of what we can expect from the rest of the season.
Smirnoff Ice Dragons 13, Red Wedding 12
Hello and welcome to the BUL recap for the Ice Dragons (white) vs Red wedding (red). The Weddings entered Sunday’s game heavily favored but key absences and some upstart newcomers on white would serve to level the playing field. The most notable absences included red’s workhorse Jeremy Langdon and white’s Alton Gaines. With key pieces missing, no wind, and sauna temperatures, the game became an outright slugfest. Being light on handlers the dragons tested out different handler sets being anchored by Jonnie and or Andrea. A solid hands team up and down; white’s roster allowed them to try out several different looks in the back field involving Corey, BMo, Jet, and O’Connor for a multitude of different handler sets. Wedding was anchored by Adam Stoller in the backfield while they experimented with repositioning McKelvey from cutter to handler to mid depending on how white tried to defend him. The teams exchanged blows for 10 points with neither team gaining a break. Finally red scored two breaks to take half thanks to McKelvey’s spectacular endzone grabs and his assist to Roosevelt who beat Jonnie on a jump disc in the endzone. White went into the halftime shade licking it wounds, but would be reinvigorated by stellar defensive plays from Chris O’Connor whose clutch defense vs McKelvey inspired the dragons into two breaks of their own out of half. At that point the teams went back to trading blows with Red Wedding holding the serve until universe. The Ice Dragons broke for the win in dramatic fashion when the disc was swung to Jonnie who found Vikkie streaking breakside in the endzone to seal the victory.

Pumpkin Spice Life 15, Fat Jimi & the Backstreet Boyz 10
The blame for losing this game is entirely due to having their team namesake being in Iceland currently. Pumpkin Spice Life had major contributions across the board. Christian “Loony” Luneburg when asked about facing Alex Hiley commented “Tony had some new girl that was very good”. Seems like a compliment from the 2 time spirit award winner. Being without their 2 top picks in Travis and Fioramonti proved too much for Green as they fell to PSL.
