Fifteen years ago today, Coleman Asher Zielske burst upon the scene. And it’s been a wild freaking ride ever since.

Are you familiar with Ultimate Frisbee? It’s a sport. Like soccer or football. But it’s played with frisbees. And it’s totally awesome. To get an idea of how it’s played and how completely beast some of the players can be, check out this clip. One of the coolest things about Ultimate is that it’s self-officiated.
