Frisbee League Seeks First Lady’s Help

April 22, 2013

A group of ultimate Frisbee players are turning to Michelle Obama to solve what they say is a grave crisis for amateur sports in the nation’s capital: a sudden increase in the number of trees planted on the Ellipse, where, for years, they have congregated for Wednesday night pickup games. Members of a league called Wednesday Ultimate on the Ellipse are writing to the first lady, pleading with her interests in health, wellness, and exercise to put an end to the tree planting. (dcist)
