the bat. So that’s what we did.
Competitor 7: Once you’re on a roll you have more confidence and you can think faster.
Scoreboard Operator: The scoreboard has a horn, so I have to make sure that I don’t
turn the horn on. And, of course, everybody’s looking right at the scoreboard, so if I screw
up everybody knows about it.

Competitor 7: W.
