What A Terrible World, What A Wonderful World…

So, this happened…


Yep. That’s right. My Robotics team went to Chicago Regional without me and all I got WAS A DAMN CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!

Who gnu that all it takes is for me to stay the hell away?

So yeah, it’s kind of bittersweet.

    Clearly they want so desperately to please you that what they need to really soar is a little distance from the master whom they respect so terribly much.

  2. The Robotigers matches were AMAZING. They managed a late selection to be added to the second-seeded team, and then spent all of the playoff rounds stomping on the terra–until the finals. The 1st seeded alliance had never scored as much as our alliance, and after a quick first round win, we had a referee judgement go against us, so it became one-all…the rubber match, after the scoring was verified, turned on six freaking points: 172-166. And so; we’re going to St. Louis! Well, some of us….

    The grasshoppers have learned well under your wise & firm hand.

    But too many cooks spoil the broth.

    Personalities and internal politics have ruined many organizations. You built the foundation, helped them understand how to manage a complex project in a coherent fashion, how to think through the design and then to use the tools to make it work. You are a zombie of strong opinions, and that has been known to cause friction, but remember that you did the important things before all that…

  5. We are scrambling to find funding for the trip now; we drained our accounts this season, and will need about $12,000 to make the trip. The registration fee ($5,000) has been covered, but if anyone is inclined, we set up a GoFundMe page to help covering the rest:


    Anyone so inclined, may help us out with donations there. Be the first to donate! Win valuable prizes (well, maybe not so much)! Get that warm fuzzy feeling from helping some high school kids have the experience of a lifetime!

Go ahead, tell me how I fucked up this time.
