Waiting for Muffin and the Hodags Report

My excited remote correspondent (and sis-in-law) Roberta called twice on Sunday to give us updates on the Hodags' Ultimate quest for glory at Centex in Austin. Hodag love won out, as we hoped it would. I'm still looking for a complete report, which apparently will eventually be supplied by Brandon "Muffin" Malicek, but here's the scoop from the Hodag Ultimate blog...

No doubt everyone's anxiously awaiting the entertaining version from Muffin, but here it is: hodags won all 8 games this weekend, including ones against Stanford (I bet you love that, Carrington), UCSD, Oregon, Texas, and Florida. Also Brown (dang those guys are having a tough year... aren't they the current champions?), Michigan, and Western Washington. Hodags didn't get to play CUT, but at least they got to beat two of the teams that beat CUT. The final sounded every bit as exciting as the George Mason/UConn game today. Thanks to Kevin Riley for the voicemail recap, but I'll let someone who was there tell the story.
As someone commented: Go Hodags! now post the damn write up so we can all bask in your projected glory!

Btw, Back in January, according to this blog...
"Three members of the Wisconsin Hodags, Ted Tripoli, Brandon "Muffin" Malicek, and Nate Hurst, rushed into a burning house this afternoon after they noticed it was being engulfed in flames while practicing their nationals-winning throws in the park by their home. They pulled from the house two fine duders completely unaware of the inferno, let alone the fact their lives were being saved by members of an team trained to kill with speed and i/o precision. Read the story or watch the hilarious footage of Muffin's interview with the news crew."
Gotta love those Hodags.

When opposing teams want to taunt Muffin, they call him Brandon. pretty low, huh?

I want to thank you for all of the support that you have given me and my relatively unknown sport of ultimate. I'll even give you some of the credit you were claiming for our big tournament win. There is a new Centex write up at hodags.org. Also, the unattributed quote at the bottom of the entry is mine. Thanks again.
