Nobody on my team had a reference book the day of the deathmatch. Yet we still managed to come in third place! I can't wait to get fired!

Brianna said...

My team had one reference book, but it wasnt the Hacker book, a different one and it seemed to do us more harm than good. The times that we did use it, we got the wrong answer! Definitely don't forget your Hacker books tomorrow!!

publius said...

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think the purpose of this post is for smack talk. That’s why it says, “Have at it”. Okay, I’ll see if I can get this thing going.

Check list for MLA deathmatch 2K9:

Hacker handbook: Check.
Team mates: Check.
Coffee mug: Check.
Good night sleep: Half check.
Will to win: Check.
My “A” game: Check.
Easy tear tank top for classic Hulk Hogan victory yell: Check.

Get ready to cry kids, cause our team is going home in that El Dorado!

JCampos said...

Wow! On our team too their was a girl who brought an MLA book but every answer that we got from that book we got wrong!!!

I think she was undercover working for Manzo's team and they probably had some kind of secret code language so nobody else would know!

Sabotage!!!!

Alycia said...

Well, I must admit, my team had no book and not quite enough "A" game. In fact, I can barely say we got our "C" game going. Hmm. It is a group of 3 females and one male...whom was correct two times but overruled by femininity. Maybe his voice should be heard?

Tomorow we shall have a plan.

Abby said...

YOU GUYS ARE GOING DOWN!

Matt and I are both going to show up with Hackers and A-games. So prepare to die.

Abby said...

Also:

You guys SUCK at trash talk. Man. You suck.

Cierra C. said...

Ohhh Matt, YOU WOULD.
Anyway, we guessed on all our answers and STILL got the steak knives! That's pure LUCK OF THE IRISH baby ;)
And don't worry, nobody's gonna laugh at you when you cry after being completely and utterly SMOKED by my team..I mean, honestly, I'd cry too. Because it's gonna be a SHUT OUT.


C-Dawg OUT.

publius said...

In full agreement Abby; these guys need some help.

At least Cierra knows what this is all about. There is hope for the future!

No hope of them winning mind you... No no. It will only be whining from our comrades tomorrow.

(See how I used this opportunity to not only trash talk your inability to trash talk, but also your inability to win? That's how this works.)

Brandon Root said...

I just wanna say that Barry is a great team player even though he tries to cheat 92% of the time. He usually makes us laugh or the desire to kick him out the window. Barry, glad your on my team for DeathMatch 09.

twfields said...

Hey folks get ready to go home crying cause were taking that El Dorado(or at least the steak knives so we can flatten the tires on the El Dorado hah)

JLYNN said...

I highly dislike this game. It's so stressful. AND My team always loses. Maybe it's because I'm on their team. haha

JLYNN said...

I left my book at home both days we had the match. But we didn't really need it because we got almost every question right without it.

JLYNN said...

In fact I bet if we HAD had our books, we would have beat out everyone! Because we're that good! UHHH!

JLYNN said...

I think since Mr. Peters is SO nice he should just give everyone that participated in the game bonus points. Wouldn't that be nice? I think so..:)

Luke said...

I have to wonder how team 3 missed the question on Faulkner. How could you NOT know that Faulkner used the fictional Yoknapatawpha County as the setting for many of his novels, and that he based it on Lafayette County in Mississippi.

Maybe Team 3 should stick to Goosebumps and Captain Underpants.

Since that's clearly all they've read.

Jessica said...

This was a lot of fun, and it cracked me up how people got so into it. we came in 2nd which was cool but i really could have used those 5 extra points!

Brianna said...

in 101 my team got steak knives. today, my team was eliminated, along with teams 2 and 3. *sigh*. maybe it was due to our lack of competitiveness? its ok tho, because this is my 10th comment today! so i'll get those points!

jonathanweedin said...

Maybe team one should stick with not reading at all, because they can't! Burrrrn Luke, burrrrrn.

Alycia said...

Ha and now its all of us "losers" of the DeathMatch 09 that must conitnue posting comments in order to pick up the slack of not cruising in that El Dorado. Looks like it will be a longgg night!

kristina.s.ballasiotes said...

NO one on my team even wanted to win because none of them needed the points like i did. So basically I was the only one that cared leading out team to lose. :(

kayla said...

So we completely went from stake knives to a new car! The MLA death match wasn't too bad.

Barry W. said...

my name did amazazing.. we were down by 9 at the start and came back to win.. i am so excited for the 9 points !!!

Luke said...

Jonathan's just mad because he knows team 1 was about 800x more awesome than team 3. (no citation needed, since it's common knowledge)

LindsyM. said...

my team got eliminated because someone in my group decided that they were the only one who could possibly be right.
It sucks having people in your group that really don't care about the greater good of the group.
Especially when that person brings the wrong book the first day.

Eric Manzo said...

I can't believe I missed this I could of talked so much trash and man I really really wanted those steak knives. Thanks a lot group 1.

kristine.a.lefors said...

I got the steak knifes(group 5! But that is what Jim was shooting for so we meet a goal, but who knows I think another round and we could have beaten Matt's and Abby's group(1)

publius said...

You know we love you Manzo

Mindy said...

SUCKA!! you guys just went down!! my team and i went home with the el dorado!

Nelson E said...

I have no idea why I was in barry's group? Lol Just Kidding

jonathanweedin said...

Oh really Luke? If you're so "awesome" then why did you lose? Second place is the first losers ya know. That makes third place the second losers. Infinity plus one your mom. Burn. At least my armpits smell good right?
