Wachter’s Eleven

In my startup survey of last year’s teams, I included the following question:


You need one more team member for your daring heist! Who do you recruit first?

  • Chris “Smooth Talker” Wachter
  • Spencer “The Pitcher” Peterson
  • Tyler “Trapper Keeper” Leeper
  • Russ “No Muss, No Fuss” Nelson
  • Peter “With the Good Hair” Carlson
  • _______ (write-in vote)

After 30 responses, the results were in and they were very diverse!

It was a tie between Spencer and Tyler, each with 7 votes. Youth rules.

In second place was Russ¬†“No Muss, No Fuss” Nelson, who definitely has some MacGuyver to him.

Russ McGyver

“Smooth Talker” Wachter took the bronze, tied with “Good Hair” Carlson with 4 votes each. Not much confidence in these two to pull off a daring heist.

And there were 3 write-in votes!

Jim R. saw through the facade and went ahead and voted for Julia Roberts herself. Smooth.

Nick got snarky and wrote in “your mother”. She’s definitely got the charm.

And Matt R. is still glowing from his wild finish to last season. His write-in vote went to (trigger warning for Dev) ¬†“Michael ‘Almost Made It’ Devereaux”.

Meaning I can re-run this picture.


Such is life in the HFFL.

The 2016 season is almost here! Syllabus and more info coming soon-ish!
