Hey y'all- my name is Dan and I will be your truck-drivin' debate coach. No y'all stop back sassin' or I am gonna turn this here van around and we will go right back home.














And the billboard that made us all think of Honeyman.

Georgia State- at the airport

Mike and Becca waiting, and waiting, and waiting, for Dan to pick us up in the rental car.
After getting bored, Becca lashes out. This gives Mike the opportunity to teach us all how to properly fend off a ginger attack.

Honeyman awaits his fate after missing a test. Poor Honeyman.

Prepping for the Semifinals.

Becca won 6th speaker in the JV division. She improvised her own trophy.

Diz and Becca celebrate their Seminfinalist showing at the UNI tournament by symbolically recreating the oppression in China.

Then they fought over who was responsible for the loss in the Semifinals.

And then they find out that the trophy is made in China.
