See if I relate any well-wished for you to Adam Stone!

It's kind of hard to tell from that picture, but.... DID HE GET A HAIRCUT?!?


No- still just about as shaggy as before. I've contemplated going back to the buzz cut for the summer, though.

You can bite me too.

Not all of us are so endowed that we can rely on what's inside our shirt to attract attention when on stage, so we must resort to the shirt itself.

The guy with iron balls doesn't have Darby's shirt. I think that is why he has such a passive look on his face.

well, scott, since DEB didn't compete for a spot this year, what might be kick ass (and I hear she's good at kicking ass) is for her to be one of the sacraficial poets at either the NPS finals night or semi-final individuals.  She's also our only member (if she comes to NPS this year, and I assume she is) that has had such a long perfect attendance to the event.

apparently the shirt was so bad they felt it necessary to put it in a cage to try to contain it.

OK, let's talk about the history of the shirt

They know they couldn't stop the shirt, so all they could try to do was contain it.

Just for the record, I do recall whupping both your asses last year in Ann Arbor's semi-finals while wearing that shirt. In fact, Deanna was so inspired by my stunning wardrobe that she busted out the "I Dream of Jeannie" look for finals, trying to capitalize on my fashion success. It worked- she made the team.

Mike, on the other hand, did not learn. While wearing that same shirt on the opening night of Nationals, I picked up a 26.3. On that same night, Mr. Swinkey, wearing far less dazzling attire, pulled down a 23.8 in his bout. Which I think was good for last place, and pretty damn close to the lowest score of ALL the bouts that night. You can't argue with the success of the poetry shirt.

oh sure.  I got a 23.5 (after forgetting my piece).  I still don't look like Ravi Shankar, though.  C'mon Eric sitar solo!!!

Congratulations to all of the qualifiers in last night's Grand Slam!  Great poetry, stinky scores, but great poetry!  I know that all of you will make Ann Arbor proud at NPS this year!

Woo Hoo!  Go A2 Poets!

My favorite bit from last nights slam?

Matt Ernst using the phrase "widget bought frippery" in a poem.

You just can't beat that.  Frippery.
