Just overheard a discussion of the complications of paying for skee-ball in the non-Haver-world. Free games feel like less pressure, but there is an allure to paying $2 for 6 balls when there’s a chance to win a gigantic teddy bear.
I’m still trying to get used to saying “And the Winner Is Nick Kahn.” Fortunately, it rolls off the tongue quite nicely. Now to get the official title into the heads of the community, which is still buzzing about the tournament!
Phil Drexler, one of the tournament participants who made it to the Final Four came by for the Fine Arts Senior Exhibition tonight. We spoke about Nick Kahn’s victory and watched the video of Nick’s adventures in Greensboro. While watching the video, Phil quipped, “I could’ve been a contenda.”
Somebody came and knocked on the CFG doors today to ask who won the tournament. My favorite thing about this show is that even though it’s over, it’s still not over. Conveniently, relational aesthetics doesn’t have an expiration date.
I’m trying to come up with an epithet for the final thirty-two. Thrilling Thirty-Two? Thrifty Thirty-Two? Whatever it is, it’s the last round before the Sweet 16!
I just watched Lucas Van Meter roll a 460. When I got out his card to score his game, I saw his pledge, and then I was even more impressed. Lucas has pledged his favorite book! How cool is that?
I can’t decide if I’m excited for the Orchestra of Failure or intimidated by it. Probably both. Join us tonight at 8 in Ryan Gym to cheer on student athletes and Shaun El C. Leonardo in feats of endurance!
I just watched And the Winner Is… co-curator and skee-ball master John Muse get defeated by Josh Nadel! And the Winner Is Not John Muse.
Shaun El C. Leonardo is HERE. I just saw him with my very own face. You can, too, at his artist talk tonight at 7:30 in Stokes 102! Join us for an exploration of art, athletics, and identity with Shaun, whose past projects have involved football and cage fighting.
3 hours and 3 minutes left to get your Round 3 game in!
