At Regionals, we had so many kids that some of the other teams were making comments like "Did they bring their whole freaking school?!" Then again, we're not too popular at Regionals already.

Yeah. Just because you're really good at something doesn't mean that it makes you a jerk. What's wrong with a sincere "good luck"?

Exactly... and until this year, nobody from our team was EVER rude to other teams; our coach drilled it into our heads that we had to be above all that crap.
(Then, of course, this year some guy decided that didn't matter, and started randomly insulting other teams, making them hate us even more... and destroying our reputation among the adults in the region as being good kids.)

I hate when one kid is bad, and then everybody pictures everybody else from your school as being that bad. It's stupid.

Well, the other teams were pretty much looking for reasons to dislike us... 9 years of 1st place does not endear you to other teams.

We have a team like that in my region: White Pines. They usually get 2nd at nats, but we don't hate them. We just like to make up stories about them. :lol:

Who was it? If I had to take a guess, I would, but it's probably easier to find out from you than by guessing wrongly.

Actually, it was 2 people: Frank and Mario... Mario actually got a penalty for his team; Frank just got yelled at by an event sup.
