LASA won. Other than that, I have no idea what the standings were off the top of my head.

You know what's awesome is when hosts of tournaments do things like post the results of those tournaments and if they can't post stats immediately after, they say something like "stats are coming soon." I love it when that happens!

I never knew that Fall Out Boy was that good at quizbowl. The Mamas and the Papas still had better music though.

Ah shit double post.

Edit: To make something constructive out of this post, let me say that LASA has been very impressive this year.

I understand that some of these were high school teams that could face sanctions or something? Anyway, Mamas & Papas were Texas A&M, Alice in Chains was Rice, Rascals were UT, and Boys II Men were Oklahoma. Don't know the others.

Alice in Chains is actually a hybrid of Zach Yeung and LASA B. Rice on the whole was unable to attend thanks to exam week and its corresponding explosion of take-home midterms.
