10K Qualifier

I took a seat in this. First or second. I will never know because they do not let you finish Mano-E-Mano. Anyway, the game is at 4EST today and has 60 people registered currently. Wish me luck!

Dear Richard:

None of you, which is par for the course. But they're closer than you, since all they did was misspell it. Mano a mano is Spanish for "hand to hand." Since hand-to-hand combat typically pits two individuals against each other, the expression is often understood to, but doesn't literally, mean one-on-one. My assistant, Little Ed, made a similar mistake. Having read about the testosterone-driven naming of Grand Teton mountain (look it up), he had for years a giddy idea of the meaning of tête-à-tête. Imagine his disappointment upon discovering it merely meant "head to head."
