ECC Notes

1. Pray for anyone but Revolver and Ironside. I've never watched such a boring final. So boring, in fact, that I got up to go to the river to swim before it was over (but then I lost my flips and spent the last five points trying to find them instead.) With Revolver and Ironside, you have two teams who want to possess the disc and throw little shrimpy passes. I thought I was going to choke on comeback cuts.

2. Defensive handling won for Ironside. The trio of Crockford, Goldstein and Muffin were well balanced and powerful. When Ironside got the turn, their offensive abilities allowed them to take shots when they were there and grind it out when they weren't.

3. Fury over Riot again. This final was almost as boring as the men's, but for a different reason. Both teams played an with an incredibly flat, calm demenor throughout. It was as if they had come to an agreement before the game that Riot was going to let Fury win. In a way, they had. I've been puzzling about what I'd do if I was in charge of Riot. Ignore the elephant? Face it head on?

4. Mamas don't let your babies grow up to play coed. Please.
