Bloggin' about you-know-what

Post by JackGlerum »

The day has come. NAC 2009.

About to leave for the Sheraton. Should be fun. I'm getting up extra early to get there for the hot breakfast buffet. I like food.

Rumor has it that there's free internet, which is good.

Back in an hour or so.

I have arrived. Buffet is mediocre. The only "hot" part about it was the pancakes. I envisioned better.

I have seen Byram Hills and Zionsville so far.

More importantly, I have seen Chip. Sporting green jacket like Tiger Woods.

Apparently, in the 27 year history, the most violated technicality is answering before your name is called.

This is according to Chip, who's reading this match.

100-85, Fisher's winning. Chip says it's a close one.

Chip also tells us that the questions are from Questions Unlimited. Pushing the whole QuizNet thing.

Second time Chip has said "That's not nepotism, that's genius". Something about Andrew Beall musical compositions.

Fisher captain weeps the instrument bonus. The whole room claps. Chip gives him something and says it's not Chocolate cigarettes. He says NAA has never endorsed smoking.

Chip says come to his hotel room and see all the chocolate cigarette wrappers. Amusing.

Also, I've been told that round sweepers get CDs of Chip's son, Andrew, making music. http://www.andrewbeall.com/

Hence, the "Not nepotism, Genius" quote. Amazing.
