OSPL 2012-2013 NOVICE -- Official Sign Up Post for November

Post by MahoningQuizBowler »

This is the sign-up sheet for the fourth round of the Online Skype Practice League (i.e. OSPL) for the 2012-2013 school year. This season is at the Novice level; the next Expert season will begin in December. OSPL November will run for 4 weeks beginning on Wednesday, November 7 (no matches on Election Day as I imagine we'll be quite busy watching election returns and picking up current event clues). There are four time slots available for matches this season -- first week being the aforementioned exception -- with all times Eastern: 8 PM Tuesday, 9 PM Tuesday, 8 PM Wednesday, 9 PM Wednesday. If you have scheduling requests, please include that in your sign-up.

If you have not already, please read the OSPL General Announcement post to learn about rules changes, particularly those regarding substitutions and timeliness of playing your scheduled matches.

Teams will be constructed once all players have been confirmed. The winner of this season will not be eligible to play OSPL again until the OSPL Novice Champions League in May. The prize for winning this season, aside from Champions League entry, is one free entry at a regional/state level History Bee run by NHBB (value: $15).

In honor of No Shave November, teams reflect some of the best reflections of hirsuteness on the pitch....

(Alexi) Lalas Longhairs -- 1, 5, 9
(George) Best Beards -- 3, 7, 11
Socrates (he's Brazilian, no second name needed) -- 2, 6, 10
Higuita Handlebars -- 4, 8, 12

I guess I'll play. I want to be on team Socrates. That guy is awesome. (The soccer player not the philosopher) Also if you are open to team name suggestions, the Mellberg Moustaches and Higuita Handlebars.

Matchnight 2 in the books; Socrates 400-220 Lalas and Best 475-145 Higuita.

Next week is, basically, the first game in a best-of-3 final between the two undefeated teams. That will go at 9 PM. Remember that next week's matches are on Tuesday night. Lalas v Higuita at 8 PM Eastern followed by Best v Socrates at 9.

For the curious, we used FKT 2009...Editors' 1, 2, 3 for the first three weeks, and the Bindis packet for the final.
