Last year, we had basketball, this year we have golf.
: You ever watch golf? That what this is... You play to get a better score than the other guy...
: I know that unless we're really impressed, we'll be asking at the forum to kick the action up a couple of notches... a nod to years past... there's no confusing FIRST with BattleBots but fuzzy pink flowers and hugging are going too far...
: I know that we'll plan for alternatives and remember that the postseason will bring any rules we agree on...
: : As I said before, this year's game is really a show of skills. Really similar to science fair. But you know what, it's going to be so much fun designing and building the robot. And when maximum scores appear in the game, people are going to be really exciting about it.
