    Unfortunately, neither qualify.

    You must first establish a baseline score on/after May 20th, then record three consecutive declining score.

    Please see post 16 for an example of this for an increasing score.

    Hey guys! Wanted to post what my prize was for winning the "3 Up" side of the contest... Chris' contest are always the best, and his prizes are great! He sent a gift certificate to a local sports shop called Ebbets Field Flannels (link: https://www.ebbets.com/) which sells some pretty cool old school stuff. I picked out this shirt:

    which is just so perfect since they were only called the Purple Sox for one year, 1919, and that is the same year that I tell all my students I was born in when they ask (and they always ask!). Now I have a shirt that will really blow their minds!
    Thank again, Chris!
