The Oregon State Tournament was this weekend. The highlights include:

--watching the latest episode of “The Office” Sam had taped in the bus (the only VCR we had access too).

--Jared and Tyler go 5-1 (Jared earning 6th speaker in open) and break again, and Michelle and Bree break to quarters in their first tournament ever (Michelle gets fourth speaker in junior)! !!!!!!!!

--I hang out with my sister Katie, who rules. I rule more because we're related, supposedly.

--Truax rips a massive hole in his pants during impromptu sales finals. I find that fitting (HA! GET IT?).

--Haylie qualifies her prose, Tiffanie qualifies her ADS, and the speech assassins Jess and Ashley qualify their duo (they needed a 1st to qualify and they got it…seriously, what badasses).

--Michelle Kwan (who sucks) pulls out of the Olympics and everyone laughs a lot.

--Sam has a six pack of Mike's waiting for me on ice when we get back to the hotel. Classy!

--Tiffanie does a speech on killing cats and Haylie does some random poetry and butterflies getting it on, and earn 3rd and 2nd respectively in “bad interp.” Congratulations?

--The team gets third overall and kicks a hell of a lot of ass. So much so, in fact, that I COULD NOT JUDGE AN INDIVIDUAL EVENT FINAL ROUND BECAUSE WE HAD STUDENTS IN EVERY SINGLE PANEL.

I love this team so much.


  • Bravo to everyone on your team as well! Way to go, coach!

    (Although I gotta pull some LC pride for this tournament!)

  • Yeah, so I was kinda surprised that you pounded all six Mike's in less than an hour. I was hoping for at least one of them. Thanks.
