The Robowranglers (148) continued their three year prank war with the Robonauts (118).

Operation Playhouse… successful.


#2

Some of you may have seen the results of the Robowrangler’s “Operation Playhouse.”

Here is some backstory:

It was one of the highlights of my championship. In fact, it may be one of the highlights of my entire career in FIRST. :wink:

Thanks to 118 for being such good friends. We love you guys.


#3

I just LOVE this pic!:slight_smile:
Maybe we can do something similar to 368 next year. :cool:


#4

I cannot wait to see this escalate further. I just read the blog post and my laughter woke my roommate.


#5

This is absolutely hilarious. Hands down the best prank I’ve ever seen in FIRST


#6

Just because we don’t cheer, doesn’t mean we don’t have fun. :wink:

I wonder if the folks who label generic merchandise for trade shows (and FIRST teams’ giveaways) could come up with a cost-effective means of printing a logo on a few thousand balls.

Always looking to optimize the production process…


#8

They have, it is called freshmen with sharpies.


#9

Something tells me that 118 won’t have to shop for giveaways next year–add “118” to all surviving balls and it’s a perfect giveaway!:stuck_out_tongue:


#10

Loving this! Great job you guys!


#11

i cracked up when i heard about this!!! we have 2 big bags of playpen balls that we pass around between the robotics team members by spreading them around their yard :stuck_out_tongue:


#12

Haha, this is hillarious. Wish I was there to see it in person. Great job guys.


#13

Definitely the best prank I’ve seen in FIRST thus far in my career.

Absolutely fantastic.

So I was walking around Newton and saw some play place balls in a clear plastic bag. I wondered what it was for… :wink:

This is pretty awesome!


#15

Please tell me you used Silver Sharpies!


#16

It would be ironic if those balls were next year’s game piece, at which point 118 could reply “muahahaha!”.


#17

hilarious. Love this spirit:D . This friendly prank should be happening more often.


#18

I can’t wait to see what happens at round up in Austin.


#19

One of my good friends from the Beach Bots sent me a picture of this the night you guys did it. I burst out laughing at dinner and just had to share it with the entire team. I think it’s great teams can be great friends and connect like this. Thanks for the laughs 148 and 118! :slight_smile:

Hilarious! This prank should have won a award. I can’t believed I missed it in person. I took pictures of 118’s robot the following day and I was wondering why they had a few balls attached to it.:smiley:
