Favorite Thing About The Tournament It shows there’s more to law students than just reading good. We can learn to do other stuff good too
The Tournament Would Be More Awesome If –        The third-to-home base paths were Slip ‘N Slides

–        It had more of a “Hunger Games” flavor to it

Anecdotes The first time Tim and Kyle met:

Tim: Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise?

Kyle: No.

Tim: I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could [midi-chlorians discussion redacted] create life. … He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.

Kyle: He could actually save people from death?

Tim: The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural.

Kyle: What happened to him?

Tim: He became so powerful … the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. (smiles) Plagueis never saw it coming. It’s ironic he could save others from death but not himself.

Kyle: Is it possible to learn this power?

Tim: Not from a Jedi.
