I am going to be starting a mailbag column that runs weekly on Thursdays about topics across the sport. I want your questions and comments! All correspondence can go to firstname.lastname@example.org or @ceisenhood on Twitter.
To encourage quality questions and comments, there will be a weekly prize given out for the best submission of the week: discs, jerseys, video downloads. It will change week to week.
This week: win a free Ultiworld disc, just for sending in a great question, comment, or idea.
