Who likes the Thunderchickens?

229 likes the thunderchickens...

Thanks guys for being great pit partners. We definitely enjoyed the experience of being so close to the chicken-coop.

In honor of our new friendship, I figured I'd share this website:

http://www.subservientchicken.com

Try it... you might like it.

(I think that's Paul in the suit, but I'm not sure )

Re: Who likes the Thunderchickens?

I think the thread would be shorter if you asked "Who doesn't like the Thunder Chickens?" Actully, I don't think the thread would even exist. The Thunder Chickens are an amazing team. Having breakfast for whoever wants it at MULPIPLE competitions, making a special autonomus program just for Team 93, making that little news paper at their competitions (FOUR at the Championship). The Thunderchickes are really a team to be looked up to by all FIRSTers.

I bow down to them!

Congrats on a sucessfull season, and Thank You for picking us in the eliminations at Midwest.

I would be a ThunderChicken, had I graduated a few years later than I did ('98).

Go HFII Falcons!

Re: Who likes the Thunderchickens?

I just love the Thunderchickens. I first met Eric Gargus on the team when they were still "Team McComb" (ooooh, what an impressive name!). Then, Eric introduced me to that crazy Italian and it was all downhill from there.

Did you all know that the Copioli brothers are REALLY bad at darts? V-Neun and I totally out-darted them one night in Atlanta. I guess that it's hard to throw a dart when you are a chicken.

Re: Who likes the Thunderchickens?

Like my teamate said before, you guys picked us, how coudl we not love you??? Being an animator in the past, I have always loved your animations, and this year was no exception.

I think the most rememberable moment for the 2004 year with 217 had to be at MR. "Ummmm, I don't think so (pause) graciouslly". Yes their was a reason behind why that happened, but it was just funny overall.

oh come on guys, that was TOTALLY planned.
(for anyone not at midwest, theres an audio clip at http://www.swando.net/alliances.wmv)
but yes, other than the fact that i will never be allowed back on the field again, honestly, i was confused. and apparently i made paul feel horrible, and messed up our karma, but paul, if you recall, last year i do remember a particular phil replying to alliance pickings with "yea. cluck." sure, its not as bad, but you get the distinct feeling that you need to lighten up those match-picking ceremonies sometimes. very tense time, gotta keep the crowd in it.

yea, thats definately what i was going for.

Re: Who likes the Thunderchickens?

a special thanks to mike copioli for helping 234 save valuable time in figuring out that all we needed to do is replace a victor and not a drill motor (granted we still needed to later in the day Friday). of course...when he figured it out the manufacturing engineer, aeronautical engineer, and two future Mechanical engineers looked at him and said "you mean the little fan thingy?"

"Am I smoking crack or something?"

Thanks again mike.

They got worse, we got better.

I guess you just can't compete with pure talent like ours.
Better luck next year boys.
