This was a weekend of reckoning for the team. With mere days to go before the big trip to Houston, all of the physical pieces needed to come together. In the space between, I learned some new trivia:
1) Alex likes magnets. A lot.
2) Mallory once recited Pi past 200 digits for a free pizza.
3) Travis is putting his money on the tractor wheel getting the best traction.
4) When you promise Ryan "pie," understand that he's hoping for key lime, not pepperoni.
With the assembly close to complete, today's demo for local TV news should be smooth sailing — provided nobody takes credit for colonizing the moon. Ha.
Nine days and counting.
