Re: Where are you going for colleges?

RPI is an excellent school with great programs in many areas of study and is particularly known for its engineering education. RPI is more well-known in the northeast, but does have strong national recognition. I don't know how much stock you put into US News and similar ranking publications, but RP...

Re: New York 2011

It's time again - West Point weekend! Congrats to all who have made it. It's a weekend of nerdy bliss and great competition. Remember that while you are trying to do well and get medals, this is also (at most) a 3 or 4 time thing that you'll never have again. Take it all in and enjoy the moment. Be ...

It makes me sad that I created this zombie of a thread. I had no idea its lifespan would reach to around the 2-year mark.

Re: New York 2010

As a three-time state competitor in Division C, I never made it past West Point and got to Nationals. But you know what? I'm really okay with that. Besides the "blah blah blah spirit of Science Olympiad" thing, I think it's also a spirit of competition that needs to kick in. So another tea...

Re: Baseball

And the Phils still lead the division. To be fair, I would be worried as a Phillies fan. To go this long without any offensive output (much less decent scoring) would be very troubling. What else are the Phils built to do? They outscore people and have pitching that can keep the game in reach. This...

Re: Season 2011 - Site suggestions

As per the event thread organization, I have two overarching thoughts. The first one seems more reasonable, and the second is actually a sort of reflection. First : What about giving each event a sub-forum and keeping that organized alphabetically? I realize that few events demand that kind of addit...

Re: New York 2010

A slightly belated congrats to all four NY teams at Nationals! The teams all ended in the top 15!

Thanks to all four teams, representing NY marvelously and showing what a great SciOly state this is for both B and C division.

Re: Baseball

I realize I am a bit late on this, but I am very pleased to see the Mets turn it around slightly by winning the series vs the Yanks. Now they're putting up decent offensive numbers in almost every game. I guess it was a bit too early to forget about the (morally) superior NY team. Things can only im...

Re: Is Science Olympiad worth it?

Science Olympiad is worth every moment, every hour, every setback and every devastating moment of disgust. That all sounds pretty bleak, doesn't it? I can't say that my days in S.O. were without blemish, even though I tend to remember them fondly. I remember that robot and how it owned my life while...

Re: New York 2010

So here starts the NY C competition at West Point. For those returning: you know what to expect and will probably want to go crazy to get those medals. Pro tip: take a few breaths and relax! West Point is an amazing place and you might forget to have fun if you're too lost in the competition. This e...

Re: Politics

I caught the State of the Union tonight. I can't help but being left with this idea mentioned toward the end of the speech. It's paraphrased, but given the positive spin given to the Democrats and the negative tone sent to the Republicans, I really see it as appropriate: "So I don't want to tur...

Re: Scioly Fantasy Football

I am certainly in favor of moving to ESPN. That's what I've been using for another football league, and for a fantasy baseball league for the past few years. They have a very slick interface. I'll see if I can help out in getting "real" users for FF next year. I have a few friends at schoo...
