    If I had brought a 3rd pair of dry gloves I might have gone to New District but we were drenched!

    I vouch for the victory dance. It was quite scintillating.

    Also, Sarah failed to make a BEE-line to the Phoenixball, and it seems Mr. Happy beat her to it.

    I am still deeply offended by having the Phoenixball stolen from under my cream-puffed nose. Also offensive was your victory dance. Tim the Enchanter take note- SteveO’s dance was so offensive it almost caused a #metoo moment!

    CBGAnimal, I know why you’re Tim the Enchanter’s favorite. You’re my favorite too!!!

    I can also vouch that Steve O's victory dance was both ugly and offensive. I made him do it.

    Here's me nabbing the Phoenixball right off Sarah Bee's bike.

    Whichever ball I had is now out there:
    There once was a boy who upon a ball lucked
    And left it by a bridge Aqueduct
    Someone find it fast
    I don't think it will last
    If not our game is most certainly ...

    The ball itself:

    My delusion of points earned and lost:
    10 (new base for find)
    +7 (a bawdy limerick)
    +10 (across state lines, from VA to elsewhere)
    + 5 (new consumable swag)
    -0 (Tarantallegra Spell was not yet in effect when I obtained the ball)
    -10 (5*-2 for delay of game, assuming ball is found before ~10pm tomorrow, could potentially increase depending on when the ball is found)
    = 22 points

    Miscellaneous notes: I have consumed the found swag, but it was not on premise. Also, I'm casting the spell of the Warlock Judd on CBGanimal, which I've charged over the course of 5 laps (see Strava activity #1395493718), but without panniers, so only -15 points to her.

    New ordinance: This is a new spell, Wingardium Leviosa. The way it works is that each time you're hit with the curse of Judd, you can invoke it on one ride (to be started and finished within two days of the cursing), and every 200 feet one climbs gains one bonus point, and this is capped at 2 times the damage you're hit with. E.g., CBGanimal will be taking a 15 point hit from my curse, and if she casts Wingardium Leviosa and does a ride with 1183 feet of elevation gain in the next two days, she will receive 5 points. The bonus would max out if she climbed 6000 feet in one ride (15 * 2 * 200), and would result in the damage being nullified (plus a bonus equal to the original damage).
