Hey Columbia, I challenge you to a game of Words With Friends
Look, Columbia, I know you’ve been playing Words With Friends instead of doing your homework. I’ve seen you playing it in class. I’ve seen you planning your next move down in the subway. And so I’d like to announce a little project I’ve been working on for the last, oh, twenty minutes or so. Ready? Here goes:
A Columbia-wide Words With Friends tournament. One that I intend to win. BOOM.
Here’s how this is going to work:
- If you’re interested in participating, you’ll email me with your name and Words With Friends username by noon on Monday. I’ve even set up a fancy email address for that: firstname.lastname@example.org. Because I may have to cut some people to make the tournament bracket work out, inclusion in the tournament will be on a first-come, first-served basis, which means that you’ll have the best chance of participating if you email me sooner rather than later.
- If you talk smack in your email, I will talk smack back.
- I’ll set up a March Madness-style tournament bracket whose size will be determined by the number of people interested. I’ll include myself in the bracket.
- After I’ve figured out all the logistics, I’ll send an email to all of the participants going over the rules. Play will begin Monday night and continue through the week. I hope we can finish things up by next Sunday so that I can blog about how handily I’ve won.
- The winner of the tournament, whoever it is, will receive his or her name on Spectrum and some sort of very desirable prize. And also, you know, glory.
Finally, because I’m blogging for Spec’s opinion section, here’s an opinion: I have a decent shot of winning this thing. Come at me, bro.
