I was eating lunch today in the cafeteria at work where the tv is always on CNN. Today, at 12:25pm PDT, CNN had a story on Championships. They showed a little bit of the match on Galileo that was happening, but mostly they showed the reporter. Also, the reporter referred to it as the “National Finals”.
It was pretty cool seeing it as it was shown, as opposed to taped. Too bad there aren’t many people at work on Fridays.
P.S.- “Beware Saturday the 14th!” (for those of you that watch B-movies)
They just showed another bit from the competition. I caught a glimpse of team 1727; the furry control panel and shiny mullets caught my eye. They interviewed someone, I didn’t catch the team number, but he had a blue mohawk.
I saw a second report today. The first report, from yesterday, had a suprising number of inaccuracies in it. I was quite disappointed…also yesterday the reporter had his safety glasses on his forehead.
Word is definitely spreading about us - a friend on a Yahoo board I belong to posted the link because he knows we are involved in FIRST. I saw someone from the Thunder Chickens wearing the chicken hat, but don’t know who it was.
Let’s hope we all get more great publicity like the CNN piece.
