My buddy from college (now in grad school at UC Irvine) won the 2003 National Monopoly Tournament!

You know the old saying, "It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy," well, that's about as true as it comes in this situation.

This is great, because the next time you loose you can tell your opponent, "I've been beat by better people than you," and then prove it.

This story was all over the local news channels yesterday. I guess the champ is originally from Germantown, WI, which is only about 15-20 minutes from me.

So, Mark, when you played who was the car?

I forgot to mention that. Thought you Wisconsin-ites would get a kick out of it (I'm only here in passing).

Which time?

The thing about Matt is that he always gets you cornered. He'll propose a trade, and what sucks for you is that you're screwed whether you take it or not. I learned that not taking it means you'll last a little longer, though.

Not a native? If I may ask, where are you from? And why did you select Whitewater?

South Chicago Hts., IL

The other question has a long answer and a short answer; I'll give you the short one: I heard good things about the theatre department.
