FAQ
Q: Do strong rowers have an advantage?
A: No, TBF Nerd will include no rowing.  More importantly, contestants with knowledge of music and pop culture will have an advantage.

Q: I don't consider myself a nerd. Is this contest for me?
A: Yes.

Q: What if I cannot make one or two of the workouts?
A: We'll be running TBF Nerd workouts on Thursdays initially, so hopefully you can find a time that works for you.  But if not, TBF Nerd lasts several weeks so there is still a good chance you can place well even if you cannot attend every class.  If we need to expand, we may include a Wednesday or Friday TBF Nerd workout.

Q: Can I attend multiple TBF Nerd classes and take my best performance for the day?
A: No.

Q: Why are there no sign ups?
A: This is to ensure any potential contestants don't act like jabronis and refuse to sign up because they're worried they'll miss a workout or two.  As long as you make it to class, you'll be ranked in the competition.

FAQ
Q: Is this like the Sweet 16 where strong rowers have an advantage?
A: No, Major League Recess will include minimal rowing.  More importantly, thoughtful contestants will have an advantage.

Q: I'm not that smart. Is Major League Recess for me?
A: You can probably find something more your speed.  Maybe go see the new Zac Efron movie, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising instead.

Q: What if I cannot make one or two of the workouts?
A: We'll be running Major League Recess workouts on Thursdays initially, so hopefully you can find a time that works for you.  But if not, MLR lasts several weeks so there is still a good chance you can rack up enough points to win.  If we need to expand, we may include a Wednesday or Friday MLR workout.

Q: Can I attend multiple MLR classes and take my best performance for the day?
A: No.

Q: Why are there no sign ups?
