Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary." -Vince Lombardi

Why we think we should win:
Because we want a good grade...oh wait...never mind. We thought this project was for a grade. Our teacher just said it isn't.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Make a hole in one (golf)

Favorite Rube Goldberg video:

Piggy piggy, on that wall
Why you not that tall?

Today we’re here for a brawl,
A small,
Ball,
Will fall,
You better get your cameras and haul.

The biggest event of the year,
But now you're here,
The pig doesn’t fear,
He’ll get that coin,
Without even a tear.

There is a quarter,
A small little quarter,
It’ll be launched from something like a mortar,
Even Trump can’t stop it with at the border.

There is a pendulum,
It ain’t like a piece of gum,
It’ll launch you,
Into itty bitty crumbs,

The show is about to start,
This show is a piece of art,
Made by a bunch of seniors that are smart,

Grab your coke,
Grab your popcorn,
Enjoy the show,
Because this is why,
Why you were born.
