Dear Harvard Mathematics Department:
It has recently come to my attention that our colleagues at the MIT
Mathematics department do not think much of our collective dance abilities.
In fact, they don't think we're any good at all. This is unacceptable.
My counterpart at MIT and I have decided to settle this dispute, by
****First Annual, Harvard-MIT Mathematics Department Valentine's Day Dance
Dance Revolution Competition****
To the winner goes bragging rights for a year. The loser goes home. The
winner also goes home, presumably.
When: Valentine's Day, 2/14, around 5.00 PM
Where: MIT student center, arcade room
What: Dance Dance Revolution competition
Why: Because this aggression will not stand, and it will be fun.
For the uninitiated, Dance Dance Revolution is a dancing video game, best
described by video --
We will have a team of 10 from each department (comprised of graduate
students, postdocs and faculty) face off against each other one at a time.
If you're interested in being on the team -- please send me an email by
Friday. This will not be a big time commitment (just an hour or two next
Wednesday) and it will certainly be fun. No experience on DDR necessary.
No physical coordination necessary. Just an ability to laugh with/at
