As a practical matter, if you write a tossup about Washington, D.C., should you really end it with "capital of the United States"? The guidelines appear to agree that that is what you should do.

That the behavior criticized is not considered by the person criticized as an integral part of their identity. This strikes me as very accurate, and unfortunately, this is where we run into problems. The people who post on this board are often very (and rightly) passionate about the game, and are o...

Wow - I was being sarcastic to begin with, but now I'm just... wow. That's... interesting. What do you think the NYU team would have to say about this?

What's wrong with being named after a manga about a labrador who turns into a person and falls in love with a girl from his school?

Re: Elvis tournament

I'm not going to linger on the faults of this tournament because anyone interested in this thread will know what they were. Too true. I will say the following, though: Repeats can be bad. As a side note, it would be awesome if the standings could be posted somewhere. I find them useful for proving ...
