Why didn't Florida State go, Billy? I hope y'all didn't stay home to watch that "football" game between your college and that private school from downstate.

How they were used in the tournament. The "Ottawa" packet was not, in fact, written by Ottawa players, and it received a fair bit of criticism. I think this is best dealt with privately for now.

Bsmith is absolutely correct in his assertion that most of the questions in the packet listing Ottawa A as an author were not in fact written by them. By my very quick count, there were 5 tossups and 6 bonuses from their packet. The principal author for the packet was Seth Kendall. I also contributed a few.

I used relatively few from the Ottawa packet because I received all sets from Ontario Bowl relatively late in the editing process, and they had an (understandably) different distribution which emphasized the Canadian, where possible.

Bsmith, I would have emailed this to you directly, however, I could not find a contact address. If you would like to, you can email me at quo.vadio@gmail.com.

If you would like me to list the tossups and bonuses that I received from your set on this forum, so that you can be dissociated from the rest, I would be happy to.

I neglected to mention in my last reply that Seth was rightfully listed as the principal author at the top of the packet in question.

Save up money to go to Princeton's PARFIT tournament, where there will be better teams, questions, competition, venue, etc, etc, etc., and most importantly, my BFF Chris Ray.

ROAR Jonathan Magin angry at your misplaced best friendship forever that has not been placed in he who is BFF to all. The sky over Maryland and Magin's hall of plenty the South Campus Commons looms red as if Bruce Arthur were drawn and quartered by Fra Filippo Lippi and Lippi ascended to the heavens to paint our sky with Bruce's blood. It suffocates me and my fellow students like the devil oxygen which nearly brought Andy Goss to his end at the Library of Congress on that fateful day. The greatest crime unto the Jonathan and his harsh shar'ia is chutzpah and I prophesize that you, William Galusha Beyer III, will fall on the plain of Jordan Boyd Graber's accidental urine when you are brought to the great judgment for your folly.
