As always, the deadline is Saturday at midnight EDT.

Go!

Ref 1: “So, the field crew gets a 12-point bonus, 12 points for crossing the line and sending a ball across, a <G22> violation… and **5 **penalties for IMPEDING the start of the match.”

Ref 1: Why is it easier to ref Overdrive than it is the Hokey Pokey?
Ref 2: She’s got it right – you put your whole self in, you put your whole self out, you put your whole self in and then you shake yourself about….

The right hand goes before the left hand and before the whole self.
Simple.

Ref 1: then you call it - I’m not going over there, she has her hands on her hips which means its about to get ugly. This could make all the fuss about G22 pale by comparison.

The crew is split on the Hokey Pokey decision as the audience calls for:
Chicken Dance

The refs get ready.

Ref 1: Seriously, how can anyone mess up the Chicken Dance?

Ref 2 sighs as he prepares to pull out the yellow card. “It’s all the flapping - they have to get the flapping right. Half of 'em can’t flap worth a flip. You’ll see. Wish they’d just stick with YMCA - that’s an easy one to ref. 4 letters just 4 letters.”

“Yes, randomize IS a word, I looked it up online… besides, FIRST wouldn’t invent a word just for the coopetition, um, I mean, competition, would it?”

Rob (guy on right): “Hey, wassamatta fer you, how come youse di’nt put da blue ball up dere, I toldja to” (Remember, it IS New York)

Graham (leaning on ball): “You toucha dis ball I breaka you fingers!”

Jose: “You talkin to me?”

Christina: “Who you t’ink you talkin to, you wanna piece o’ me?”

Refs in the background (on right, pointing):“Get ready to duck, the guns’ll come out in a moment…”

Rob’s Bodyguard (hidden behind him): " … " (he don’t talk much).

:eek: Don

[Note: Team 1676 helping out at NYC]

Crew member on right: “You have to move the red ball. The blue one goes there.”

Crew member on left: “Nope. I put it there, it stays there. I can randomize just as good as that computer can.”

Ref in background: “See, this is what we get. Next year the crew will have to take a certification class just like we had to this year.”

“NYC: Where the Egos Come to Volunteer”

Crew member on right: “Guys -and lady-, this is the LAST TIME I’m going to say it, you need to put the balls where the randomizer tells us to put them.”
Female crew member: “And what happens if we don’t?”
Crew member on right: “Well, there are at least 400 people-most of them incredibly smart teenagers- who saw the randomizer, and I imagine that they would attack you in mob form if you tampered with it, since it could possibly mess up their strategy/game.”
Ref: “See, this is why we should only have one field reset team. Now they’re delaying the start of the match, and WE’RE going to be the ones who are attacked”

[npoe] I bow to the amazingness that is Travis Hoffman. I simply submit this to get my weekly point [/npoe]

Ref: The robots keep crashing into the big yellow 04/06/2008 during hybrid mode. I say it’s a natural hazard, part of the game.

Rob: “The Randomizer says to put the blue ball there.”
Christina: “It also said to put the red ball there. You can’t have two objects occupy the same place at the same time.”
Jose: “That’s not necessarily true. I think I have a solution.”
Thanks to some creative time/phase engineering both the blue ball and red ball were put into the same spot.

Christina, “WOW!!! You guys do everything BIG in NYC.”

Rob, “HAY!! That’s why they call it the “Big” Apple.

I think it’s my turn, Graham, get off my BOCCE BALL.”

“Now why would you go and put a trackball all the way up there?”

Welcome to the Willy Wonka Wegional where we’ve secretly replaced the normal Trackballs with these giant Everlasting Gobstoppers.

Ref: Well, do you think they’ll reset the field this time or try and eat the game piece again?

“One crew member was reciting ‘Applied Particle Physics’. Another was reciting ‘One ball, two ball, red ball, blue ball’. I’ll leave you to figure out which was which.”

I know it looks like a giant meatball but I had Italian for lunch. Can’t we think of somewhere else to go for dinner?

Guy: look… I don’t care that this IS an election year! You’ve got to handle BOTH the red AND the blue track balls!

Protip: Don’t sleep for most of Sunday if you have to judge a caption contest.

First place goes to:

Second place goes to:
