Friskee have split in two this year and this half definitely feel more strongly about the movie Hot Rod.
Give us a short history of your team
Whiskee is an exciting new branch of the weathered oak tree that is Friskee Ultimate. Whiskee has been actively developing a team vibe somewhere in-between “fun uncle” and an annoyingly high achieving younger sibling to the WUCC-oriented frisk, allowing is to bant about while they earnestly conduct flow drills. Our name is one part drink of preference and two parts reference to the ’07 classic ‘Hot Rod’, though to be honest there weren’t many words with a “skee” suffix to choose from. We’re a fun combination of old people confronting their own mortality, annoyingly smug young blood and a healthy sprinkling of former Kaf players.
What are your goals for the tournament?
To popularise an exaggerated, soft “wh” pronunciation of all words that begin with a ‘W’ like that scene in Hot Rod (See: Our second objective is to have an enjoyable time in Tasmania, Wh-inning is third on the list. Securing some future gigs for DJ Royale Flushe is also an important team goal.
How would you sum up your team in 3 words?
Rollicking, self-aggrandising wh-inners
Who should we be looking out for?
Well how long’s a piece of string? How many eyes have you got? The team is packed with superstars. Take your pick really, a Crocs triple whammy, a bit of Kmortz action, and dark-horse silent type Xav just to name a few. We’ve also got some choice young guns, like Rabs “DJ Royale Flushe” Revai. He’s incredibly lucky and inarguably without talent at FIFA, but the complete opposite on the Frisbee field. When the Colony rookie of the year isn’t slaying his opposition on grass, he’s setting dance floors across regional New South Wales on fire. Don’t believe me? 100% of punters at his latest Goulburn gig were so impressed they “Wished the music was louder”. And don’t forget about our stingray fan-favourite, Ynez Ruiz #81. An elusive, almost magical cutting style sees her affectionately referred to as “The Loch Ynez Monster”. So bring your sonar and long range camera and maybe, if you’re lucky, you’ll leave Tasmania with a blurry image of Ynez scoring on you. Maybe if you hadn’t brought all that equipment you’d have played better defence.
Who are you most looking forward to playing?
An ostensibly light-hearted rivalry with our mates Friskee will be a guaranteed fun time, and we also always look forward to playing Krank because they are just so gosh darn passionate about Wollongong.
What do you think of the 'endzone decides' rules?
It's good we rate it.
If your team was stranded on a desert island and you could only take one other team from AMUC, which would it be and why?
We would take Kaf, because they have a 20 person roster and some valuable assets. We would use Ben Sutas’s brain to help us survive and get to safety and use the remaining 19 people on their roster for food. Jeez, can I say that? Is that too edgy? We would only eat them in a crisis, not just for, like, snacking. Lachie White would be first to go.
