Sent, by me, fearless team captain, to the inner-core of the team on July 29, the day before we left for Atlanta:
Jesse is talking to Dick Nunn right now and I have a few things to say:
I say this to you, Northern Bites: we have the fire.
Over the past six weeks we have had the highest highs and the lowest lows. Deluded visions of grandeur and depressingly bleak predictions. We’ve broken three robots, made countless runs to D^2, inured ourselves to Imogen Heap, screamed ‘ROLL!! UNROLL!!’.
It’s time to up it up. Let’s win this f-ing thing
Yes, we are finally going to see Transformers tonight, with at least the remnants of our team: me, Mark, and Chown-Dawg. And maybe some frisbee friends too.
I will post a thoroughly technical review when we get back.
UPDATE:: it was good.
are those who choose to write ‘RoboCup’ as ‘Robocup’. The capitalization gives the RoboCup , the organization, its own flavor and sass. Please, write it down properly!!!1111one.
CMU Take RoboCup 2007 on Penalties [in small-sized and third-place game].
Newcastle are Robocup runners-up.
We have a bunch of stories coming up focused on the nBites coming up soon. We are also happy to tell our story to anyone who wants to hear it, so please contact us!
Four-Legged League committee members for 2008: here.
Congratulations to our esteemed professor, vision-guru, and all-around good guy Eric Chown for being appointed to the technical committee! May the Northern Bites dreams of playing all games inside room full of mirrors finally come to fruition!
Also, as a grievance, Michael Quinlan is now the chair of the organizing committee, and also a regular member of the technical committee. This is a clear violation of rules 1a,1b,1c, 4, 6, 89, 42, and 9 of the RoboCup charter.
