    The link for Internal Medicine is Disqualified! is not taking me to that post. If readers are interested, here’s the URL for the article: http://scienceblogs.com/worldsfair/2007/03/showdown_update_team_internal.php

    um, what happened to the tournament?

    Jim, We’re apologize for lack of notice and thank you for asking us…we each (Dave and I) hit a mid-to-late semester snag at the same time that, unfortunately, then coincided with the Va Tech tragedy, which ended up putting us off by a few weeks. We’re back on, with new announcements and the final games, very soon. Thanks for the patience, and again, sorry for the delay. Ben

    Please finish this tournament somehow. I know it’s been awhile, but this is pretty much the funniest thing I’ve ever seen!

    Yes, we will. Definitely by the end of 2007, or else we’ll have to go into space-time stuff which is hardly our strong point.
