In a valiant effort to vanquish the devilish “Projects Board,” WPRB embarked on a vicious quest for victory in Dillon Gym for Princeton University’s dodgeball tournament.
It was a bloodbath. At the sound of the first whistle, WPRB-ers rushed towards the centerline to acquire all the dodgeballs. The Projects Board, however, had the same idea, and they too rushed to the center with a slightly more aggressive and naturally quicker gait. WPRB would not let this minor problem of having fewer balls get it down. With a fair number of strong lasses and lads and a couple of balls, we began to catapult the enemy. The enemy responded in turn, hitting innocent yet strong WPRB staff members out to the sidelines. Fortunately, WPRB-ers had a variety of strategies. Some went right in for the kill, attempting to hit the large, overly muscular members of the Projects Board with the utmost power. Others hid behind their teammates, just waiting for the moment to throw their victory throw.
Esteemed Music Director Devika Balachandran employed this second method until she was the last member standing. She dipped, she dived, she dodged, just not as aggressively as one might hope. With the entire Projects Board against her, she did not run. She remained strong in the face of danger and did not collapse on the ground with a heartattack. And as a video of Devika shows, she created a new dance move while she ran around the dodgeball court.
It was a slaughter, but a noble slaughter. The Projects Board was a fierce opponent, and as we knights say against the heat of the foul dragon’s breath, “At least I tried.” (In this badly constructed metaphor the knights are WPRB staff members, and the foul dragon’s breath is the Projects Board.)
