I'd still like to find a team for this; I can get sports and some good buzzes in other areas too.

Hart/Bentley: I need a team as well and bring knowledge in video games, post-2000 music, and all of the stupid stuff I wrote about for the Trashtastrophes.

I'd be willing to bring my mishmash of odd sports, some movies, and Misc aspects of the distro to this team.

Okay. Any leads for other teammates? Preferably someone who knows TV/movies.

Sure, I'll play this, if anyone's looking for that key four and a half ppg to get them over the top.

If there promises to be a question on Bhangra I'll play. If not, I can offer to staff, depending on when exactly this is going to be run.

You better hope I'm not playing against you (i will say though that I only 20'd the last bhangra bonus I saw).

I seem to have neglected to post my availability as a free agent for this event. If a team needs a classic movie, classic TV, & baseball history player in particular, that would be my best fit.

So it is now looking more likely that I will be teamed up with Frank and Trevor Davis, with Mik being a long shot to make it. The criteria for a fourth still stands for those interested in the spot.

An observation and a solicitation:

(1) I'm pretty bad about keeping track of the field and such for this. I'll try to go through and update everything, but not until after I get back from CULT.

(2) Susan and I know nothing about video games. Anyone want to write a handful of video game questions to pepper through this tournament? That'd be coo'.

Nevermind, I totally just updated the field. Go me!

Also: some other staffers would be nice.

Yeah, sorry for any confusion / attempted placements of free agents on that team. I didn't notice that I wasn't placed on that team a long time ago.

With 10 teams formed, I had better repost my free agency availability. Surely I know about film "stuff" as I have been comparing/contrasting the AFI Life Achievement Award to Mike Nichols: in-person on June 10 to TV Land Prime on June 26.

I read somewhere on a thread that the lit will follow the CO itself on Saturday, July 24 while the fine arts will follow this trash on Sunday, July 25.

Travelling like Carl Fredricksen (Ed Asner) in UP (Pete Docter, 2009),

I realize this is kind of late, but I would like to declare my interest in free-agent participation. I'm fairly well-rounded, and do especially good on video games and film, although sports is a weak spot for me.

Assuming Eric Mukherjee doesn't have to fly out early (and neither one of us already committed to a team, because we can't really remember), I think we're playing together and definitely looking for some teammates. Sports that aren't football and music are much appreciated, but a propensity for Jeremy Eaton-style hilarity will trump actual trash faculties.

Myself and recent Wisconsin graduate Devin West will both be playing this, and are looking for teammates.

I am very good at sports (with a special emphasis on tennis and boxing), and solid at TV. Devin has a pretty eclectic knowledge base, but I would say that he is probably best in recent movies and music. We are both above average trash players who are nowhere near as good the top players in the country. Ideally, the same should be true for our teammates. If you are interested, please e-mail me.

Yo. I'm afraid the one sport I know well is football (well, football and curling); but I do know some music.

If you still need teammates, C. Ray and E. Mukherjee, and you just can't stand getting less than 30 on that one bonus about women's tennis, I'm game.

I'd be willing to move over to the "staffing" camp. I'd be happy if I could get somewhere in the Chicago area to crash for Saturday night.

Anyone have one or two spots? Please e-mail or PM me. know baseball, tv, film, pre 2002 music and just general stuff. Ted Stratton is also in, ideally as a package. He just knows a bit of everything too. Count our ringz (and by that I mean 2nd-4th place finishes)... I guarantee a delightful time.
