Re: Music Discussion

One thing I thought that this tournament could have done better on was writing tossups on individual songs. An example of this is the tossup on "Glory Days." Bruce Springsteen is my favorite musician and I've heard "Glory Days" dozens of times at least. Yet despite this the early clues were almost i...

I also don't think I can find the time to write anything for this tournament as I'll still be finishing up my schoolwork by the time this is run. So if packet writing remains required I guess you can remove me from the free agents list.
