Syracuse/Waterloo Ratio: When your total number of wins is equal
to the number of 1 man teams you played at a given tournament. Coined after
the 2000 NAQT ICT where the Div. I team posted a 4-10 record by defeating
Waterloo (Ricardo) once and Syracuse (Andy Wang) thrice.
New Haven Follies: 1. The actions of Andy on April 15, 2000, after
Yale's BOB tournament. 2. Anytime one leaves their lights on, burning out
their battery, gets a jump start, and then locks their keys in their newly
revived, running car. This kind of behavior makes one thankful for their
"Pocket Partner" (see BOB results entry above)
Halley's Comet: Coincendentally, the frequency of Halley's
Comet is the same as the frequency at which Brandeis defeats Harvard A.
Last witnessed at Terrier Tussle XI (Mehrun, Anna, Ted vs. Vik, Sahir,
Suzman; 140-70); projected to re-occur sometime in 2071.
Hill Valley: Hanover, New Hampshire, the home of Dartmouth
College. All that's missing is the Goldie Wilson for Mayor sign.
____ Pride (fill in name of state, e.g. "Jersey Pride," "Ohio Pride"):
The form of hubris that ostensibly means that one should be able to answer
any question relating to one's home state. However, practically this
is very often not the case.
Hand Pow: Official gesture of Brandeis Quiz Bowl.
Weird Answer Pride: BrUQB prides itself on getting the weird questions.
