--I don't even know... some crazy thing about robots and wires coming out of me. It was a cover.--

Any New Englander will tell you (with pride) that the poet in question was the sorely-missed Bernard Dolan of Providence.

While I'm here...Yeah.  Go X-man.

Folks--

--After seven years, the curse has officially been broken, thanks to one Christian Drake.  I have no idea what supernatural forces he summoned to his aid, but he was successful in earning a spot on our team! 

-----YOUR NEW BERKELEY TEAM:
D.Silence 85.0 = Wielder of the Coveted Golden Macaroni Belt!
Joshua Walters 84.8
Christian Drake 84.7 (He broke the dreaded BERKELEY CURSE!)
Isaac Miller 84.4
Jamie De Wolf 84.4

I got $20 on Christian making the team.  Any takers?  I would love to see him break the curse.

I'll take the bet?

raise you $40.00 that if he does make the team he takes 4th place behind Jamie, Mike, and Issac.

Andre.


TOo bad I was out of town and couldn't take that bet.  That double up would have been nice.

Thanks.  Actually, it's kinda MALE, kinda PALE.  We'll have to do some work to overcome the whitesnake factor, but the good news is they all really admire and respect one another (!), they already hang out together, and we already have pre-written team pieces.  Best of all (in my mind) is that they are all local champions and veteran slammers who've never won any kind of National title.  Hungry.  Grrrr.

To me, this is THE MOST important element!  This is something that the Dayton team lacked for a little bit there, but since that respect has returned, so has the joy of Nats and Rust Belt!

You know, I never mentioned that he DID draw the "A" slot in the first round, and it appeared that the curse was in full effect. He laughed, but the other poets looked at him like he had a noose around his neck!!!   He really had to work for his spot and dispell the gloom!
