Play-By-Play Commentary

Final Answer

What a long, strange trip it has been. It's been dreamy, sometimes creepy, but in the grand scheme of things, quite a lot like life: fast, furious, packed with demons, hopes and desires.

Couscous Kid gives us the parting volley with exquisite nuance and grace. The message is optimistic, and proves the journey noble. Our zebras are back, alive and well; the color is heavenly and ties the disparate match palate together. The final unity of the graphic elements provide a confident and engaging narrative. And joyfully for this writer, the type is definitely better.

In conclusion, Duerden came out of the gate with a power punch and got this party started in style. Couscous followed through with some bawdy banter and a some big ideas. We leave you with some hopeful possibilities.

Thank you to everyone here at Layer Tennis, special thanks to Neil and Mat, and thank you for watching. Join us in the Forums with your thoughts on the winner.
