We can exile poets?

Thanks... Mike.

It wouldn't be a Swinkey compliment without an obscenity along the way. Don't worry, Mike- if you make the AA team, I'll call you a shit too. :lol:
But seriously- thanks. And I finally figured out the secret to winning a Grand Slam title: move to someplace where Matt Ernst ISN'T.

I am qualified for Lizard Lounge and Worcester semi's also, but have committed to going with the Cantab. With the new format, odds are better than ever that I'll get to face at least one of the Michigan teams. I say: Bring it.  :twisted:

Now, let's talk about Deb.

This is probably also a good place to remind all you Ann Arbor folks how much Deb Marsh kicks ass. Yes, you already know that Deb kicks some ass, but I don't know if you all comprehend the magnitude of her ass kicking. Four of the six poems I read between semi's and finals were ones Deb coached me on last year. I only won the finals by margin of 0.8 (they do a cumulative, four round finals!). I think any one of my performances would have been 0.8 lower without Deb's help.

She's good. Even if she still doesn't believe that 'skun' is a word, she's good.

Congratulations, Eric! Nice work.

You have also fulfilled my dream of being on a team with Adam Stone. Give that guy my regards.

 I will be seeing you in St. Louis then.

He's more of an "Ann Arbor ex-patriot" than an exile.

Thanks Eric!

:D I'm not sure if I kick ass, but I am really glad to hear how well you've done out east!  You're making us proud!

With love and lot's of warm wishes (and reminders to keep your gestures out of the dead zone and to say each word with--even skun)!

See you in St. Louis!

Deb

What would have been REALLY sweet is if Deb had tried out for a team this year.  Off the EC, onto a team.

THAT would have been aces.

Scott,
I did qualify for our semifinals, but didn't compete.  I figured that keeping score was more my level just off the EC and all.  But I'll keep that idea in mind!

Love to you too!

Deb

Hey! That's my 'poetry shirt'!
« Reply #11 on: April 26, 2004, 10:52:56 AM »
Oh, you had to talk trash about the wardrobe...

You know, my coach last year specifically requested that I bring that shirt to NPS because it would show up on any stage. Now, it's obvious that she doesn't pick out YOUR clothes, but that doesn't mean you should hate on me...

I don't know.  I think I might call that shirt a prop....

Not a prop, a costume.
