nycpul 2003 draft night

i didn’t know amir that well just from the few times i talked to him or played with him on the ultimate field. but i do remember the first time i met amir on draft night for the nycpul 2003 spring league. there were 6 captains (including amir) reviewing the draft pool of co-ed players. i know everybody was revving for a good team and trying to read into the line stats for the draft players. but i remember amir distinctly selecting some not so ‘great’ players just because he wanted to have a fun team and make sure everybody got a spot in the league. i remembering thinking that this is a good guy with great spirit that embodied the spirit of ulitmate frisbee. i wish him peace where ever he now is.
