I was nearly on one of those when I was in school. I was the fourth in line for a three person team, so if any of them were sick, I'd step in. None of them were, of course. Bastards. They won the first one, and then fell over miserably in the second, on questions that I could have answered perfectly had I been on the team. We shall for purposes of this discussion ignore the fact that the first one was won on the strength of sports questions I couldn't possibly have answered. Speaking of sports, I'm just back, battered and bruised, from a weekend of heavy armoured combat, SCA-style. Anyone else here in the SCA? Drew. Drew.
