Call Bob Costas

Cuz this one is coming down to the wire.

I just won another $109 tournament ticket:

Again it took just one try. The Mozart violin concertos were my secret weapon, and put me over the top with a miracle 3-outer at a crucial moment.

But I have entered five other tournaments today with not a penny to show for it, which has taken my balance down to $705. I'm registered already for a $33 HORSE tourney that starts in a few minutes, and may do one or two others, depending on how this goes.

But the only $109 tourney offered yet today is a repeat of the one I did last night, starting at 10 p.m. my time. (I assume that I have a grace period, and money won in a tournament starting before midnight still counts.) So unless I get ridiculously lucky and take first place in a lower buy-in event before then, that will be my last opportunity. Winning $500 in the next six or seven hours is a steep hurdle, but not unthinkable. I'll be giving it my best shot.

How is it possible that The Brownie Challenge is not an Olympic event?
