Somebody signed up a 19 year old martian blow-up doll on firstinspires, and it turned out to be the only volunteer qualified to referee.

Is using the levitation powers of a UFO a legal method to score the cap ball?

FRC Team 469 substituted a blow up Martian for a ref. No one noticed the difference.

This contest entry is giving Karthik flashbacks of the IRI talent show circa 2007. Martians? Balloons? PANIC!!

Re: CD's Unofficial Caption Contest #687

The Martian challenged one of the actual referees to see which one of them could ref better. Who won? The one that didn't have any eyes.
