D1 lost the first of the single-elimination rounds.. He and his partner were happy with the way they debated, so -- while they are a little dissapointed, they'll survive :). I'm still hella proud of him, and he has a couple more naitonals this year to take a shot at it.
Some of my other favorite teams are still in -- D1's new teamates are in semis, as are a couple of guys from MO who are just brilliant, nice people -- and who, I'm sure, will be the leaders of the revolution someone else in their posse proclaimed to start :).
It is now 10:00... and we still have another round, plus awards to go. It will be a long night, but we are all tired in that good way that you get when you know you've done something hard, but worthwhile.
