As always, the deadline is nominally Sunday at midnight Eastern. I’ll be at the Indiana Perry Meridian event this weekend coaching 5402. Feel free to submit your entry in person!

Go!

Gregor - Professional ball loader

Luckily the surgeons were able to remove the basketball from Gregor’s head, relieving the worry of every mentor with vision tracking on their robots.

[npoe] So many options, so little time…[/npoe]

Gregor learns the hard way why tickling a loaded, powered on robot is a bad idea. At least the basketball wasn’t real.

Gregor wore a basketball on his head to distract people from looking at his pants.

The event didn’t have enough basketballs, so some teams had to provide their own - in this case one of the drive team members’ heads.

from the sidelines: “GREGOR! Don’t bend over so far! … Yeah, that’s better!”

And for my final stunt, I shall be launched from this robot as if I was a basket ball!
-Gregor, FRC Daredevil. (FIRST Robotics Circus)

Gregor wore his golf outfit because he’d figure

  1. wearing a ridiculous outfit would help the team get noticed at a deep field during IRI, and that could help his team get picked.

  2. he’d miss getting picked for eliminations and go golfing instead.

Typically, conspiracy theorists protect their brainwaves with an aluminum foil hat. But what if you are protecting them from something made out of aluminum?

To load the ball you must be the ball.

“Who am I?” photo. Answer: “Basketball Jones”

After accidentally being hit by a ball traveling at approximately 12,000 miles per hour, gregor was permanently deformed. The outfit, however, was his choice.

Gregor was always a little more ballsy than normal…

Who needs an umbrella hat when you have a wearable hands-free goal sensor and robot game piece vision tracking tester?

Aaugh! It’s eating my brain! Get it off!

(It soon died of hunger)

That ball isn’t being used as a hat; it was just shot and caught at just the right moment.

Gregor’s head isn’t empty - it’s just got a foam basketball in it.

At last! (Sorry for the delay–the weather change during a weekend of competition kicked my butt. Oddly, it was a relief to have the issues be physical rather than emotional.)
