Apologize if there already is a thread, could not find one.

This is then the official thread for team Sueria!

Let the games begin!

Bump for the team.... they're all probably being drug tested.....
02/21/2008 02:00:14 PM · #3
I am here, I was out testing drugs, LOL! Whoot!
02/21/2008 02:01:34 PM · #4
Team who??
02/21/2008 02:08:53 PM · #5
Welcome Captain! We should probably design a logo of some sort.....

Oh, Melethia, I could tell you, but then you'd also have to get drug tested...
02/21/2008 02:11:51 PM · #6
Why do I have the suspicion none of Team Sumeria will fail their drug tests? :)
02/21/2008 02:22:23 PM · #7
I'll have you know we are a reputable team and none of have ever been bust doing anything illegal. Having said that.... there was the noodle incident......

Since I have no idea what or where Sumeria is, can I be the mascot? :-) I do occasionally suck down a bit of NyQuil when I can't sleep.
02/21/2008 02:30:19 PM · #9
I'll check with the captain.

By the way, the team is made up of people from different countries who could not get enough members together for the DPC Olympics. So no real country, yet. We plan to take over the world!

It begins to make sense...

"The first true civilization on planet earth (of which we are aware) developed in Mesopotamia, and the people who built this first civilization are known as the Sumerians. Ironically, little more than a century ago, nothing was known of the Sumerians. The first civilization in history had been lost to history. Slowly, over the past hundred years, and largely due to the efforts of the Universities of Chicago and Pennsylvania, the puzzle has been slowly pieced together."

If they keep digging they might find that the Sumerians weren't too good at winning ribbons. :P Btw, where are the cookies and drinks? Sumerians are cheap too.

I was informed by the Olympics organizer this evening that I might be joining your team (if the captain agrees) since you lost a player. Would someone please PM me if I am wrong (or right) - and then I need to catch up and figure out when we start. Cooleo!
02/22/2008 08:57:12 AM · #15
Hi everyone - I'm in. Posted up my Black and White in colour on Tuesday and then put in a modified version yesterday.
02/22/2008 10:22:29 AM · #16
Wow - thanks Yanko!!! that's the first and last time I'll ever see my name and number on a sporting item or piece of sports equipment!! Love it.... Loving the logo too: gold, glittery, ancient, mystical and mysterious.... Yep - and I need my jersey size in a "Large" too ;-)

You are in! I will send you a PM. Welcome to Sumeria. :)
02/22/2008 01:59:52 PM · #18
Fantastic! Thanks for the PM - will reply shortly.

Do we get to adjust the jerseys so I get one too? Is there a link to the spreadsheet with scoring? I know it is floating somewhere, but haven't found it yet.
02/22/2008 02:06:51 PM · #19

//www.treasureshackonline.com/DPC_Olympics.htm Here is the spreadsheet link. Atleast when I look it has [user]terje[/user] instead of you ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' howzit and ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', '/') + 1) . ' SergeP as captain. But maybe for others it comes up different.
As for jerseys, Yanko made them I can ask him to update our jerseys to put your name on it. :)

Seeing as we appear to be the oldest civilization on earth, we can spell however we want and everyone else has to follow suit! ;-p

So - what's the spread like so far..who's in "Black and White in Colour" and who's in "Colour on Colour" ...?
Have I understood it correctly that when voting clean up happens, our votes for fellow team-mates will be discounted? Dead scared of being accused of "friend voting" - even though I might not know whose image belongs to who.

COME ON SUMARIANS - WE CAN DO IT!!!!!

Cue flappy, enthusiastic pom pom girls:

"We're gonna B-E-A-T
we're gonna B-U-S-T
We're gonna Beat them, Bust them that's our custom
Come on Sumarians let's do it again!"

Just FYI, the banners have been updated to reflect the roster change.
