orgtheory turns two

BTW, orgtheory celebrated its second anniversary yesterday, so wish them a belated happy biennium if you haven’t.  Even better, rumor is that they are working on a charity “Boys of Orgtheory” pin-up calendar.

We may be younger, but we are feistier and will still kick their bothers in the Wii tournament at ASA.   Although we may need to add some more athletic guest bloggers if we want to also win the Capture the Flag match to be held on the Boston common.

BTW-BTW, one of the things I did at PAA was go bowling at this place that played live zydeco while you bowled.  I haven’t bowled since grad school, and even then only a few times, but still got a 139, including a strike-strike-spare-strike run before the cocktails kicked in.  A woman in our group who hadn’t bowled before and had a delivery like one of those sidearm baseball pitchers got a 29.  It made me wonder about how on earth Barack Obama, even if he hadn’t bowled since he was eight, could only get a 37.

  1. Re: Barack – that was a 7 frame game. No I am not making this up. So to figure out a 10 frame score you would have to do 37/7 * 10 which is almost 53.

  2. Hmm, Brayden, we’d have to count on Kieran, Fabio and Omar making up the difference. I bowl once every two years or so — but I think I can roughly match Jeremy’s low 100s score.

  3. FYI, this year’s reception of the ASA section on Communication and Information Technologies will be a bowling event on Sunday evening: “Bowling for Social Capital”.
