Well, not quite.... I have no idea who won the final. But I can tell you for sure it wasn't Hammond nor Perry Hall. Both of us lost in the semis. Dulaney won the first match, and Parkville defeated us in the second match. Although Parkville was good, I would imagine Centennial won. But that's merely...

Perry Hall should definitely be a good contender this coming year. Hammond's first round is with Atholton and Glenelg for an all Howard County opener. We tape November 18, and I believe it airs the second Saturday in January. A few of the teams we beat last year, including Perry Hall, Parkville, and...

The 8th Annual Green Eggs and Hammond Tournament will be held once again on the first Saturday of January, January 6, 2007.

What an amazing finish to a great tournament.

Unfortunately, Hammond just couldn't figure out a way to beat RM to the buzzer. Jeffrey and the Chris's made a good adjustment to Zahren in the Superbowl--I think they were thrown off a bit by him in the DC finals, and figured out his timing for our match. Chris' anticipation was simply inhuman. The...

Thanks for the comments. Perry Hall certainly came to play.

You're right about that visual round. I think they scored 7 of the 10. And the Georgia O'Keefe question was just ridiculously fast.

We're going to be practicing our butts off this week--should be an awesome superbowl.
