Epic bout last night. After the four rounds, we were tied for 1st with Berkley. We went to a one-poem slamoff. We went first, throwing up "Black Nerd." They followed with a poem by Christian Drake about porn (which was pretty damn spot-on). We edged them out, taking the 1st. After one day of competition, we're in 7th place. Which means nothing, because we haven't competed twice, and many other teams haven't competed even once yet.

I was a bit anti-social yesterday. After our bout, I got drunk and went back to the hotel. Laid around and watched TV. Then dragged my drunk-ass to the slammaster's slam and had an awkward conversation with a few folks along the way.

Came home, passed out. Just got done with lunch, where I had my first Wisconsin cheese curds ever. Delicious. And now I feel enormous.

Tonight? We compete against Green Mill, Sacramento, and Phoenix---all of whom got 3s last night, meaning they'll be especially hungry for the 1st tonight. We have our work cut out for us, but we're feeling confident and calm.

Also, hotels make me miss cable TV.

Step away from the training table, Bucket. No more cheese curds until you win again.
