Pizza is my favorite food, so I'm biased. But I once had it every day for a week, and got soo tired of it. There's no possible way I could make it a year, unless it was some sort of survival situation.

Hamburgers are darn good, though. But let's save that discussion for next year's speculation thread.

Also, JC = James Conrad. Although I can see using jc (both lower case) as Jordan Castro, but agree with him not being well known enough to go by his initials

I'd never heard of Jordan Castro before this thread. He's 1021 rated so obviously he has talent. It looks like he went 35th, 27th, 20th, 49th, 27th, 43rd, 40th, 37th and 39th in DGPT events. He went 23rd, 72nd, 35th, 5th, and 39th in NT's. He was 35th at Worlds and 79th at USDGC. His only win of the year was at a C Tier. He finished top 5 in seven of 26 events. His prize money for the year is $9,489.

That says a lot for the depth of disc golf that a guy can be 1021 rated and have an average finish of 38th in big events. I would have expected that a 1021-rated guy would have results littered with top 10 finishes, but he has eight all year and only one in a big event. To me that's contradictory information; a 1021 rating is really good, so why are his finishes so ordinary looking?

It also brings up the question of sponsorship and what kind of support a company can be expected to give a player who is going to give them 38th place finishes in the events that are being covered.

Castro has been touring playing open events for the last 5 years and he toured playing Advanced for a couple years before that so its been a slow and steady increase. I have no idea how he's been able to make it work for the last 7 years, but I'm guessing he has a ton of parental support.

Looking at those finishes from this year, this seems like a prudent decision for DD. I'm guessing if he had pretty hair and teeth like McCall, he'd still be on the team though.
