You get someone to agree to pick us in an alliance on the Curie field, and I think we can make that happen. You just need to give us 24hrs notice.

I think the obvious follow up acceptance would be:

[jog up to selector, obvious pratfall/trip-up] "Erm, Team 57 not so gracefully accepts...."

Re: You Cannot Graciously Accept

i was considering in NY if I already knew a team that was going to pick us was to take off my shirt and be wearing that teams shirt underneath

another idea that just came to my mind was choosing by saying
Team XXXX! I choose you!!!

Re: You Cannot Graciously Accept

Here we go again... I was wondering when this old thread was going to get beat into the ground again

I graciously accept all the futile efforts at proper english.

Now get back to work on your robots.

Re: You Cannot Graciously Accept

Anecdote time...

Yesterday I was visiting Cornell University as part of their "Cornell Days" for accepted students, and during the "Topics in Engineering" discussion, the speaker asked, "How many of you have heard the stereotype that engineers can't communicate?" I thought of this thread as I raised my hand, along with a good portion of the rest of the students. The speaker then said, "Well, we don't believe that lie here. ALL engineers here will learn to effectively communicate their ideas, or else they can't be effective at their careers." (Or something along those lines.)

I just thought it followed some of the discussion of this thread very nicely.

Re: You Cannot Graciously Accept

I think at Tempest 07' an old team member begged to go up for alliance selections. PINK picked us as first pick and he went up and said, insert rapper voice here: Yeah Yae, then walked away. The announcer stood shocked and said, "I think that was a yes."

Re: You Cannot Graciously Accept

When 973 was picked our driver said "973 would love to join your Raptor pack." One of the better one's in my opinion, as I despise the term "graciously accept" with a passion.
