I was just wondering about any epic supercell shots. If you heard about one let us know. Also a lot of videos are on the blue alliance website. So let us know what regional and what match they happended in.
One sweet one happend at the very end of this match. It was a quarterfinal at the Arizona Regional. It was a half court+ shot that went from the corner past the opposite outpost. The buzzer went off while the supercell was in the air…I saw it live and thought it was pretty epic. The throw comes from the right side of the screen about 2:10 into the video. http://www.thebluealliance.net/tbatv/match/2009az_qf2m1
1676 threw a really awesome one. I think it was at the end of QF1-2. Our HP was throwing it from the home fueling station- it went up!..and hit the projectors hanging from the ceiling. Suffice it to say, it didn’t score…but it was one of the funniest things all year.
An epic supercell shot from the Palmetto regional came from our throw. Last 5 seconds of the match our thrower chucked one halfway across the field and put it in the trailer pushing our winning score to 104. It was epic!
Seattle Regional and I believe our alliance partners were 3070 and 1510 (Wild Cats). It was in the final seconds and the shooter of the WildCats lets loose a long shot super cell from the far leftand makes it which helped us pull ahead and win the round :yikes:
Match 3 finals, Blue leading for the upset. Supercell bounces off another robot and into Blue trailer 2 seconds left. Red wins 97 - 90 and wins GTR. One of the best finishes I have seen but seeing that I am on Team 188, one of the worst at the same time.
Funny things is, half of my team (461) didn’t know he had scored on our alliance when it happened… :o
As everyone else that was there has said, he made a great shot. That super cell went straight in, no bouncing around.
He was the best HP at Boilermaker (Wildstang’s HP gets a honorable mention) and I’ll bet he will redeem himself in Atlanta.
Regardless, it was great to see my team to have a chance to play with teams 234 and 45, and congrats again to 1024, 868, and 292. I wish all of them good luck at the Championships, only wish I could be going with them.
