GrandSlam Highlights

img_4766#1. Pregnant doctors who pee in stairwells.
(Its a true story)

#2. Our GrandSlam winner, who realized people could find her attractive while having absolutely no idea what her gender was. She learned this from an epic hitchhiker. What a story.

#3. Our ‘best presentation winner’ telling the ‘boys club’ he is actually a ballroom dancer. The best part was his demonstration of some of the ‘less masculine’ salsa moves, talk about flair.

#4. Only Kendra could make a story about thumbsucking not suck. What a cutie.

#5. Teenage boys are so smart – they call a cop an asshole, and then get a donut craving and decide to stop at the donut shop. Hmmm I wonder who would be there? Not the cops of course. Good plan boys, good plan.

#6. Last years winner’s glittering crown shown like a star. The winners story glittered too, it involved losing the girl he loved who was also his best friend, getting her back, and after many months of dating telling her “I told you so” in front of 400 people.

#7. Sometimes a bad situation turns into a good one. Say getting fired, then becoming eligible to buy a house? And then having the house more than quadruple in value over just a few years? Karma, I think so.

#8. Smushing into a packed house. Over 350 people in one small area got cozy.

#9. Chase just being her sassy self. That woman has stage presence.

#10. Our ‘best story’ winner telling the awkward details of some medical mayhem. img_4761img_4746
