Best of the Liveblog

Filed under: Liveblogging — Chris C. @ 4:13 am
For those of you (i.e. most of you) who don’t want to go over the full liveblog, here are some choice moments from it:
Prelims:
8:55 AM
Chris: LASA’s getting a bit of last minute coaching, I think telling them to be clam
Oops, typos from the very start

8:56 AM
Chris: LASA’s sugaring up with gummy worms
Chris: They gave one to me! mmm thanks
[Comment From Evan AdamsEvan Adams: ] conflict of interest…
Bribe the liveblogger: an excellent strategy

9:12 AM
Chris: Henry Gorman just said They’rrrrrrrrre Great

11:36 AM:
[Comment From ieppler: ] Some player on St. Andrews B just smelled the armpit of a teammate.
I still don’t know what prompted this

11:52 AM:
[Comment From Jonathan Graham: ]Does that buzzer set allow people who aren’t active Georgia high school players or coaches to buzz in?
Burrrrn

12:00 PM:
Chris: mod warns the audience to be silent? there is no audience
The most Zen-like part of the day

12:21 PM:
Chris: en route to the stat room, I saw a drunken dude with a shirt that said “Straight Nasty”
[Comment From Mary: ] That is very comforting to us parents, Chris. Not shying from the facts, though
[Comment From Megan: ] If you see “straight nasty” again, find out where I can get a shirt like that
No comment

12:41 PM:
Chris: another staffer apparently overhead some Shibaricon person saying “I couldn’t find a panda suit with chain mail to fit”
Egad

2:46 PM
Chris: I don’t know if Arcadia knows it’s not playing A-sets
Double burrrn

3:16 PM
Chris: We have a player named Sky Crane in here
He’s a stat room celebrity
It’s true; the stat room was a bit obsessed with this dude and somewhat doubted whether he existed in reality or not

3:19 PM
Chris: SM rebounds, trades “cool dude fist bumps”
As opposed to terrorist fist bumps, of course

4:38 PM
Chris: some Canadians from Lisgar just walked by, calling themselves godless socialists
Hey, they said it, not me

5:12 PM:
[Comment From sumukh: ] CHRIS WE ACKWOLDGE YOU!
Glad to see I was finally acknowledged; being ignored by high schoolers was a key part of my whole weekend

5:53 PM:
Chris: in any case, the number of people yawning in this area is increasing at an alarming rate
Uh oh

6:04 PM:
Chris: one team says “there are no females on our team, so we will pass down our secret pep talk to you next year”
Chris: it makes no sense to me either
Apparently they can’t pass on their secret pep talk to males?

6:50 PM:

7:07 PM:

My Southern accent comes out sooner or later

I think these two weren’t related, but they sound perfect together

9:44 AM
Christian Carter: a tossup with the phrase “greatest blunder” was just negged. poorly. was that your greatest blunder, oak park?
Ouch!

9:51 AM

This may be the quote of the tournament

I don’t know!

10:04 AM

[comment From Matt Bollinger: ] yeah he says that. a lot.
Kind of like Mr. Potato Head brought his angry eyes along with him in Toy Story 2?

10:10 AM
Christian Carter: the mod has just asked LASA to “make this one competitive”
I mean, isn’t that what all teams strive to do?

10:32 AM

What would a three heart attack team look like?

10:37 AM

I still don’t know what this means

10:56 AM

Truest words I spoke all tournament

2:07 PM
Chris: each team should have a flag we can see flapping in the wind or something
Chris: it would be more dramatic
Perfect

2:23 PM [Comment From Demon Sheep: ] Quizbowlers in name only!
If only State College had seen my hsqb.org avatar, they might’ve won
