And the picture:

As always, the deadline is theoretically Saturday at midnight EDT.


Lady on left- " Did we really need to camp out for 8 days to get in to the event?"
Lady on right- " Yes!!, we do want to be the first people to meet Billfred don’t we?
Lady on left- " Billfred who?"

“It’s official: the University of Michigan can’t even give away tickets to their football games anymore.”


My second place entry:

Somebody should tell these young ladies that the IRI is the Indiana Robotics Invitational, not in Iowa.

[npoe]Jane, where are your “Ringer”/“Keeper” shirts? [/npoe]

Jane to new parent:
Ok, so my rule of thumb is just to fade into the bleachers - Billfred will never even think about using you as a subject for his caption contests.
Trust me on this.

[npoe] In my lap is the beautiful yellow Mission Mayhem '07 tee shirt with the winning logo design that Koko Ed submitted. It’s very cool. That was the tee shirt of the day - I just hadn’t gotten that far into it yet. The “Ringer”/“Keeper” shirts were worn on the flights. :slight_smile: [/npoe]

Jane: “I don’t know. You think if we sit here long enough, a robotics competition might show up? Because I haven’t been to one for like 2 weeks now, and I think I’m suffering withdrawl.”

How to tell a roboholic: She shows up the night before every event, before the venue is open, just to get the good seats, and brings a friend.

Woman on right: You see, the field constuction workers get a 30 point bonus if they roll out the carpet in less than three pushes, and double their score for each ringer they are wearing around their waist the whole time.

Jane: “You kept telling me and telling me, “If you build it, they will come.””
Lady on left: “Yes I did.”
Jane: “Well, they didn’t come.”

Unknowingly, the two were in suched a fierce competition that they didn’t even notice the competition end, and that everybody went home without them.

[not my real entry]
Jane: So, These two crazy girls, claiming to be BFFs, just ran over and screamed FIZZLE! at me. Does that make me a FIRST celebrity? I think it does.
[/not my real entry, sorry about doing that, jane]

[real entry]
Jane: So, then it was finals, and 108, 180, and 233 gave their time out so 1523 could keep fixing their robot to play in the last matches…then there was a Libby-Kamen-got-Duct-Taped-Delay…
Woman on left: JANE! I was HERE! I saw it happen! It’s Monday already. If you want to recap the event to someone, go home and do it.
[/real entry]

…and yes, I really did get duct taped.

Jane (thinking to herself): If I can just keep her distracted by my deep conversation, I can reach over and get that Starbuck’s coffee without her noticing. Umm, coffee, need coffee…

[obviously not an entry]
We know. :wink:

“I don’t know about you but I’m not leaving. I’m going to sit here and wait for next year’s game…just tell my husband and kids I’ll send a postcard if I get a chance.”

[npoe]Oh, so many things I could write![/npoe]

Long after the basketball game ended and the fans went home, Jane was
still bending the ear of the school administrator, extolling the virtues of FIRST vs. organized sports…

Jane…“Ok, do you think you have this now? It’s 50 bonus points if they get up and 10 points a piece if they get the colored thingies in the goal. OK, now lets go around to the other side of the curtain and actually watch a match.”
“Are you sure no one will laugh if I don’t remember this?”
Jane…“Just do it! This time next year it will be your job to introduce the new principals to FIRST!”

Jane: Stay away from that one, he’s a great designer and driver, but well, he uh… tends to make things bend, break, explode, melt, burn, fly, and shatter.
Tytus (Off camera): Hey, Arefin, get over here, I need a piggy back ride to get some explos… uh… gasoline!

Jane is so deeply engrossed in conversation that she didn’t notice the theft of her team’s banner.

[npoe]Thursday after competition…[/npoe]


Why isn’t anyone else here at the FTC Kickoff Event? I think we’re going to have a little talk with Billfred about his “inside information”… :eek:

Movie poster concept based on rejected script for a future FIRST movie:

“When 2009 Control Systems Go Bad…No One Wants to Watch”
