Just to put my vote in there.

By the way, I keep forgetting to mention my team's unstoppable first-place winning streak at Triviaoke at the WWII Club (two wins counts as a streak, right?). We have unseated scarily-smart teamSenor Cardgage, who smells of pea soup. Our team, The Rug Burns, has all areas of expertise covered:

me: art history, animals
L: current events, movies & TV
H: music, world history
J: science, math, anagrams and other logic puzzles

There are definitely expertise-overlaps, and we are all, of course, proficient in odds n' ends and pop culture. Alone we are weak, but together we are strong! Come and add to our winnings have fun with us! We are actually quite modest and graceful winners.

Ryan Klein? Or, as Scott over-pronounces it, Ry-en Kli-en? Not so good. You have to consider the whole name. It's tricky.

I just want to say two things:

1. Conner is an unnacceptable name. Just because of the parents at Disney World who kept yelling it.

2. I know nothing about world history.

I know, as you know, that none of us know about world history. But it seemed better than putting "penmanship," though your role as official team scribe cannot be underestimated.
