The Summer Classic
Europe’s best non-frisbee tournament
Take a moment to step back and consider the ridiculous charade of frisbee tournaments.
We pitch tents and sleep on the ground. We wear the same dirty uniform all weekend long. We eat a sad breakfast of bland cheese and sliced cucumber. We exercise all day long and then poison our malnourished bodies with alcohol, dancing until morning. We sleep for three hours and then struggle through the semifinals.
In the end, what we're really chasing are those two golden hours when the games are over but the sun still shines, when the beers are full and the lines of double-disc-court are drawn with our heels in the sand, when we're relaxing together on the beach with nowhere to be.
Remove frisbee from the equation and you're left with The Jogo Bonito Summer Classic.
