The Owl-bot is on patrol, scaring pigeons away from the other robots. (To a pigeon, a stationary robot looks an awful lot like a statue in the park.)

The Eye of the Owl

Risin up -- back on the ramp,
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance now Im back on my wheels
Just a 'bot and his will to defeat --
So many times, it happens too fast,
You go and topple and tumble
Dont lose your grip on the ramp of the Swamp,
You must work to get those 30 points

Its the eye of the owl,
Its the thrill of the ramps,
Rising up to the challenge of the blue team,
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the finals,
And hes watching us all
With the eye of the owl.

bumper to bumper -- out on the field,
Pushin' tough, stayin' defensive
They ring the rack still we take to that ramp
For the points, with the power to win --

Chorus

Climbin' up the Children of the Swamp
Had the torque, had the traction
Went the distance, now MARS and us on top
Just three bots and their will to defeat --

Chorus

Mars Bot: *in a booming voice* "I am the Mars Bot, who approaches the throne?"
Owl Bot: "Who?"
Mars Bot: "That's what I said, who approaches?"
Owl Bot: "Who?"
Mars Bot: "Who are you to ask me who I am?"
Owl Bot: "Who?"
Mars Bot: "You thats who."
Owl Bot: "Who?"
*this goes on for 15 minutes*
Mars Bot: "Listen, if you say "Who" one more time and I will go insane"
Owl Bot: "Who?"
Mars Bot: "AAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWHHHHHHHHHH" *starts spinning around and smokes starts pouring out of its brain*
Owl Bot: "Another bot bites the dust. Heehee."

i dont really know what this game is, but i more or less get the picture

From an owls points of view, the road from Earth to Mars is just like a swampy ramp.

Don't tell me that NASA is sending owls to M.A.R.S. before they send humans there! Who would do a thing like that?

Rabit- A little bit closer, then that owl will fall right into our trap.

Here we see one of FIRST's earliest attempts to turn to a more "natural" vision system replacement for the CMUCam. This test was reportedly quite a hoot, as OWLVision 0.8 beta proved to be a mild success; unfortunately, the cost of strapping live mice to vision targets was prohibitive, almost as much as the need to turn off the lights to simulate nighttime was annoying to everyone but the owl.

Geez, I knew Harry Potter was big, but I didn't think the FIRST would start using *owls* to deliver the KOP...

Poor little Owlbot. He was shunned by the other owls because he couldn't fly. He was constantly being chased by cats.
Then one day he heard a heavy metal robot band trying to sing a new song but they couldn't get it quite right.
Marsbot: *singing* "Who are you?"
Chorus: "Whoof, whoof, whoof, whoof"
Marsbot: *singing* "Who are you?"
Chorus: "Whoof, whoof, whoof, whoof"
Marsbot: "Stop!. That doesn't make any sense. This is what I get for hiring a hair-lipped robot. Can't anyone sing 'Who'?
Owlbot: "I think I can help."
Marsbot: "OK, you're on. " *singing* "Who are you?"
Owlbot: "Who, who, who, who"
And so Owlbot found his niche and a hit song was made.
[not an entry] My appologies to the band 'The Who'[not an entry]

Owls are nocturnal for one reason, mousebreath.

Perhaps if Rowling wrote the rules this year they would be read by more people... </NE>

If our robot is going to have a mouse, it might as well be able to eat any others.

I can't help it, the pic just reminds me of the Robin Hood meeting Little John on the log. If one extrapolates, the Swamp Thing represents water and this is just another hint at a water game and Vex and FRC will play on the final field, I mean pool, for the Championship. Anybody have a 'quarter staff'?
