I know nothing of the rest of the context of this photo, but I'm almost sure that's my keyring on the desk.

Nope, that's my keyring. And laptop. And photo. This is Brown's immediate reaction after the finals of ACF Nationals 08 (paired in-album with https://scontent-a-lga.xx.fbcdn.net/hph ... 3119_n.jpg)

I'd also add this "projected history of quizbowl" drawn on the chalkboard at a Maryland tourney, summer 2009.

There is oh so much goodness in that picture, from the "Watkins pole" to the thankfully-poor prediction of "CBI returns to TV" and I'm wishing I could read all the rest of the tidbits (is that something about Meta becoming part of the ACF canon c. 2132?)

Evan Silberman wanted to name our team for that tournament "Watkins Pole Dancers". (Un)fortunately, it never was made official.

Also, a lot of photos on the earlier pages are now broken links. Don't know if that's something that mods have control over or if they were embedded.
