Shane loved being a part of St. Mike's and in a particular way the Gilson Seminar. One activity in particular he had fun taking part of was Dodgeball and Meatballs: a series of dodgeball games throughout the semester, each of which was followed by a hearty meal of meatballs. In fact, strangely enough, the last words he sent to our group was about this very Gilson traditionĀ and our community.
It shouldn't come as a surprise then, thatĀ the Inaugural Gilson Seminar won the Inaugural Beal Bowl. We fought and won undefeated, obliterating the ranks of the Gilson 2s and 3s. However, in a final match that will be recorded in the history books, the United Gilson Seminars lost by a small margin to the Boyagoda Federation. (The students united lost against the teachers and staff, but they had a few handicaps to make up for their numbers.)
Next time, Professor Boyagoda. Next time.
Shane, we picked both community and dodgeball. These meatballs (*ahem, we had meatballs right?) and dodgeballs are for you.
This is the Inaugural Beal Bowl. And it belongs to us.
