Andy Baker

Andy Baker once declined, then still picked his own alliance.

FIRST asked Andy Baker to build a placebo bot, but then refused to give him credit when it won the Midwest regional.

Andy Baker brought his gracious professionalism today.

Andy Baker once won the Team Spirit Award by himself, at a regional with the X-Cats.

Re: Andy Baker

Andy Baker IS JVN.

Andy Baker makes everyones grandmother proud.

Andy Baker has already built an underwater robot for next year's game.

Andy Baker won a match in 2001 with four stretchers.

Andy Baker was 'done' a week before Beatty.

Bill Beatty has a recurring nightmare that all his qualifying matches are against three team 45's and every person in the driver station looks like Andy Baker.

Re: Andy Baker

Andy Baker once built a fully working robot with one hand while simultaneously washing farrowing crates, holding piglets and re-ringing sows with the other hand.

Re: Andy Baker

Andy Baker knows what Dave Lavery saw at the Virginia Science Museum.

The caption contest scores leave off the real top score each week--Andy Baker's score is really +infinity.

Andy Baker can hold 80 poof balls and deposit them all in the center goal.

Re: Andy Baker

Andy Baker took a week off once, the next week Delphi declared bankruptcy.

Andy Baker doesn't need CAD or CNC machines. He designs everything in his head, and makes gearboxes with only his bare hands and his teeth.

The Northeast Blackout of 2004 was caused because Andy Baker was recharging his robot army.

FIRST will not give the Technokats the Chairman's Award because they're afraid that Andy Baker's cheering will blow the dome off of the Georgia Dome.

Andy Baker can referee, announce, MC, run the scoring system, reset the field, que up teams, and coach all at the same time, but chooses not to so that others get to do something.

Andy Baker once created a perpetual motion machine, but doesn't want to run it because the resulting energy would reverse the rotation of the earth.

Andy Baker actually wrote the Beach Boys song "Kokomo" about Kokomo, Indiana, but he let them sing it instead because he liked their voices.

Re: Andy Baker

Andy Baker has never lost a FIRST match he coached. Sometimes however he chooses not to win.

FIRST used a carpet-playingfield in 1993 because Andy Baker ate the corn.

Once Andy Baker had a meeting with Bill Beatty, and the result was the 2000 FIRST Game.

"Andy Baker" used to be illegal in FIRST competition, per the exotic materials list.

If Andy Baker says "3, 2, 1, Go" every regional across the country starts a match.

Once, during a pre-match strategy discussion Andy Baker made Paul Copioli cry. Then he coached both teams to the win while Paul pouted.

You cannot buy Andy Baker from McMaster or Small Parts.

Re: Andy Baker

Andy Baker moonlights as a record producer, and his first signed act's debut album "Karthik Fever" reaches quadruple platinum in a single day. Somewhere in heaven, Jesus Christ applauds this miracle of miracles.

Re: Andy Baker

Andy Baker and Paul Copioli walked into a bar. The bar exploded because it couldn't handle that much awesomeness at the same time.

From that explosion came a young JVN.

Re: Andy Baker

Andy Baker built a swerve drive that was swervier than wildstang & chief, but he declared "it doesn't have enough balls."
This was the origin of the ball-drive.

Andy Baker once arm-wrestled Raul Olivera; this caused the great Los Angeles Earthquake.

Secretly, every FIRST playingfield is made in Andy Baker's basement.

Andy Baker used to have a Blue Ox, but gave it to Paul Bunyan to borrow and never got him back.

Andy Baker can make the green light go on whenever he wants it to by just wishing it and it does.

The first 2 letters of the alphabet were named after Andy (A) Baker (B)
