Play-By-Play Commentary

Oh No, Not Stereo

How many more examples of obsolete technology can this Layer Tennis match support? More importantly, is that gorilla discovering fire? Or is he about to put on a bike helmet and ride over to his friend's house to play Donkey Kong?

How was I supposed to know that Rob's last volley spelled out "Bet you can't make something that combines a gorilla and a radio"? Like I can read letters at a 45 degree angle. Apparently this is something that only someone hopped up on enough Red Bull and Guayaki Yerba Mate to kill a small primate could figure out.

But on to some more important matters. I see only an inkling of the past volleys, a few hints here and there that this was ever a tug-of-war between two people. Scott has wrestled the colors and iconography back to his old comfortable stomping grounds. He's not going to give up his advantage that easily. And he really, really, loves those monkeys.

I'm sure by now you've figured out that this Layer Tennis match is being broadcast in stereo.

Play by play commentary for this match is provided, as it happens, by Alissa Walker.
