[Email from Jay Lamm, Chief Perpetrator of the 24 Hours of LeMons]
22 December 2008
Hi, Team Captain: Good news--I think. Your team has officially been ACCEPTED for LeMons Gator-O-Rama, on 28 Feb-1 March 2009, at MSR Houston in Angleton TX. We got tons of crappy entries for this race; yours was just enough crappier to be selected. Nice work.
Okay: What do you need to do now?
A: Read this email completely.
B: Forward it to the rest of your team, one of whom is certainly smarter than you are. (You agreed to be captain, so clearly you're not the genius.)
C: Acknowledge this email with a reply that says "Team (Whatever the Hell it Is) Received the Acceptance." If you don't confirm, we'll assume you've wised up and will give away your slot. And yes, I am getting tired of receiving "Team (Whatever) etc" replies. Har har. Very clever. Never saw that one coming, nosireeebob.
