Nassau Wins the Title

Nassau Coliseum

#1 Nassau Coliseum 52 #1 Auburn Hills 36

In the championship game of Tweezer Madness, Nassau Coliseum’s ’03 version took down the Palace ’97 and captured the trophy. Although the game was competitive, the result was never truly in doubt, as Nassau grabbed an early lead and was able to maintain separation throughout the game. The only 2.0 Tweezer in the tournament out-dueled the Fall ’97 favorite in a battle between two defining versions. We caught up with Nassau in their champagne-soaked locker room, and the champ had this to say, ” We want to congratulate the Palace on an amazing season. That’s a nasty Tweezer over there, and it deserved to win as much as we did. In reality, Auburn Hills is a deeper, more psychedelic jam, but we had the advantage of length, and you know what they say—size matters. I want to thank all the voters that came down on our side, and we are happy to represent the much-maligned era of 2.0 in taking home the title.”

The Palace version offered it’s own take. “I can’t say we’re not disappointed, but its no embarrassment to lose to that monumental Nassau version. That middle section of music is as good as anything the band has ever played. I thought the score would have been closer, but sometimes things just don’t fall your way. They started the game quickly and we could never quite catch up. On another day, I think we could have defeated the Nassau squad. It was an honor to play in the national final, and it’s an experience we’ll never forget.”

It was a game for the ages, and the fitting end to an amazing month of music and basketball. It was truly a fun event and a joy to watch unfold. Hopefully people got exposed to some new versions and were able to revisit some old favorites along the way. And that brings Tweezer Madness to a close. The selection committee and Uncle Ebeneezer would like to thank all of the voters who helped make this tournament happen. We hope you’ve enjoyed the experience, and we look forward stepping into the freezer together in a little over a month as we prepare for new versions to unfold. Until then…please her with a Tweezer.

    @light glaze. Apologies for missing your question – those tics went fast

    @spasm – did my friend E flake on you for Mohegan? Seems unlike him.

    Funny story about that Charlotte Jim….”I had a dog….”

    Setbreak, we get a text our dog sitter is locked out of the house. Puppybat has been alone for 6 hours at this point, and the sparkles within us are starting to shine bright. Ren left sitter the wrong house key. He’s buggin. Frantically calling neighbors for another set, whilst telling (new) sitter how to break into the house. We ponder every entry point we’ve been wanting to destroy anyways lol. I get a side text “break down the door? Really?” Me “whatever he says!!” Poor Ren getting all kinds of sideways, debates leaving the show. I assure him everything’s right! Just hold tight! Jim opener like salt in the wound. Non stop checking phone. Turns out sitter knows a mutual friend. One we are not on great terms with. Apparently said friend is a pro at lock picking, kit and all. Dude and duddette come to puppybat’s rescue. With minimal damage.

    The most amazing part was these fringe, friction friends coming to the rescue woth zero hesitation. It touched our hearts beyond belief. Phish, always a crazy effing ride!! Never did I think I’d be surfing along 4 tweezers amidst fur baby drama!!! Lol
