The Shadys 2007

I know the NSIT-QC Blog is currently facing a deluge of Roshan proportions with tons of quiz reviews but with the year-end here and almost every other blog doing a best and worst of 2007, here's my list.
And the Shadys go to…

Fashion Statement of the Year
Manan Lalit of IIT Kanpur with his white sweater and muffler combo.

Adulation of the Year
Girl from Miranda House doing the Rapid Fire round at Tempest 2007, after Kaustuv (of Hindu) cracked it (the Rapid Fire, that is) left, right and centre - a shy, slightly embarrassed and almost inaudible – "wow" escaped her quivering lips.
Close second: Girl at the Registration Desk of Hans Raj College's Chemistry Society Quiz - "NSIT! NSIT! NSIT!" Followed by - "Electronics! Electronics! Electronics!". Add heavy breathing and an exclamation seen only in... you know.

Best Quizzers of the Year
The team from Moti Lal Nehru College who won the quiz at Event Horizon even though they were unable to identify this obscure little guy called - Eminem.

Honest Comment of the Year
"Sometimes you have to bow to the kingpin."Moti Lal Nehru College Professor after recanting his earlier announcement that NSIT (Roshan and Udit) had won the quiz. Finally, the team from MLNC walked away with the prize.

Spelling Bee Champion of the Year
Girl at registration desk at IP College for Women who spelled my name as Debash-eee-sh. Yes. With a triple-e.

Rout of the Year
Sharat and Manan at SGTB Khalsa College. S and M win with 115 points. Khalsa comes joint second with Khalsa at -5 points.

Fest Name of the Year
KémE 2007 – Chemistry Society Fest of Hans Raj College. I could say KémE again and again. On a loop. All day long.

Prize of the Year
Kirori Mal College with their grand prize of the Letter M of the World Book Encyclopedia. The proud winners were – Debasish and Anang Rawat. Anang kept it and has been looking for a certain hindi word in it ever since.

Announcer of the Year
Girl at Kirori Mal College Physics Society Quiz – "And next up we have Shararat from NSIT".

Bluff of the Year
Debasish at the KMC Physics Society Quiz, who identified the Chinese-Japanese-Asian-looking Miss Universe 2007 as Lee. When her name was revealed as Yuri, he went on to claim that her name was actually Yuri Lee, got points for it, resulting in a tie-breaker and then victory. Also worth noting is according to the official Miss Universe website, Miss Universe 2007 is a certain Miss Riyo Mori.

Quizzing Rule of the Year
Questions shall pass only if the team that is asked the question says "Pass". A rule first seen at Indira Gandhi Institute of Technology, and then later resurfaced at the KMC Physics Society Quiz.

Still-Going-Strong-Battle-Cry of the Year
Ban Ki Moon

Feel free to add to the Shadys in the comments. My next post will be a quiz. God promise.
