Yesterday I was getting measured for a backpack at a little store up the road and the worker guy commented on my short torso. Now where have I heard that before? Oh right, High School Bowl. My torso was so short that when I was sitting all you could see of me on TV was my head above the table, which only happened once. After that I sat on cushions to avoid looking like a floating head and Mr. Trombly could no longer make fun of me at school for it. Now, in a weird turn of events he is the High School Bowl coach for Gladstone and the team just won their third championship in four years! If you read the article, it says they won in 2004, 2005, and 2007. Also, they made it to the semi finals but lost in 2006. However, it does NOT say that the team placed second in 2002, the year I was on the team. We may have lost to Gwinn in the finals that year, but our team was by far cooler than those boys. In fact, our coach even commented once while at a tournament that our team was by far the most "normal looking" of all the teams. This was with BJ having bright blue spiked hair and Cecilia wearing her zebra print cowboy hat. Yes, our team was smart and hot, er, "normal looking."

In other nerdy quiz bowl related news, Baylor is playing in the national College Bowl tournament this weekend. It is their third appearance at nationals in four years. The first year they went I was on the team. Good times. This year they were undefeated at regionals so hopefully they'll do well at nationals!

All of a sudden I feel like my alma maters are very nerdy, but really they aren't. Just a coincidence, I swear...
