Penn Bowl

I went with the College Bowl team to a tournament at the University of Pennsylvania last weekend. While the final championship rounds were heavily disputed (ruining Chicago A's day, glorious as it was till then), the Chicago B (a.k.a. Mushroom Mushroom) team had fun, going 7-4 to just miss the playoffs. I did alright, getting a lot of math and Catholicism questions (Saint Stephen, Book of Judith, The Index, etc.), as well as an embarrassing mistake or two (momentarily conflating the legends of the Wandering Jew and the Flying Dutchman, I insisted that the Wandering Dutchman was present at the Crucifixion). It was a nice escape, though I was busy on my return: time and Commutative Algebra wait for no man.
