Re: Funny things to ask for on the PA system

If you're dealing with severe damage at a regional, the best thing to tell the guys at the PA: "Team ____ needs a miracle. Once again, team ____ needs a miracle"

Team XXXX has lost their programmer. Would Jerry please return to the pits?

Team XXX needs some air freshener.

Re: Funny things to ask for on the PA system

Funniest requests at the 2013 Washington DC Regional:

Attention in the pits, we have another parts request. Team XXXX needs some confidence. Once again, that is Team XXXX and they are in dire need of confidence.

Attention in the pits, we have another parts request. Team XXXX would like redstone wire. That is redstone wire for Team XXXX.

Re: Funny things to ask for on the PA system

At Boston, after so many people were complaining about the small pits, i finally requested a "Bigger Pit". UNFORTUNATELY they never announced it

Our team asked for pool noodles, and the announcer said "Team 1899 would like some pool noodles for swimming."

Re: Funny things to ask for on the PA system

Team 4269 had a student ask the announcer to ask a girl to go to prom with him. Since she does not play robots, we videotaped it and sent it to her. Major success.

Re: Funny things to ask for on the PA system

2013 Oklahoma Regional
  • Team asked for a Sonic Screwdriver ( Funny thing is there was a team there with at least four)
  • Team asked for a very skilled person with a specific set of skills but didn't say what.

I was rolling on the floor laughing when the last one was announced.

"Metric Adjustable wrench"

"Team 2607 would like 6 weeks of their life back"

I haven't heard any funny requests in MAR in my two years of first though. Seems they cracked down on it.

Re: Funny things to ask for on the PA system

While in the pits at the boston regional we were in the pit working on our robot when the girl at the counter announced "Team XXXX is in need of a large mouth shafter adapter." It was a good laugh as being in the pits can get frustrating.

Re: Funny things to ask for on the PA system

At Pittsburgh Regional on PI day, an announcement was made that if any teams had pie, that the announcer would happily take some. Also the day after he announced that if there was any left over pie not to throw it out that he would gladly take it.
