So the TPS Team ventured into the most heated spoken word competition in the world, where 70 teams collided in Boston for the U.S. National Poetry Slam.
The Team rocked their hearts out on stage, took a 2 and a 3 in their prelim bouts respectively, which wasn't good enough to make Semis. BUT they won over the U.S., winning love on podcasts, reviews and in the high-five column. We've been hearing the Team made an impact at Nats, and not just cuz coach Ian Keteku won the Slammasters Slam!
So next time you see the team, let 'em know you're proud of them, and they are now oh so prepared to win over Canadian hearts at the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word in Montreal in November.
Kudos to Kliggy, Optimus Rhyme, Philosofly, IF and coach Ian!!
David Delisca, they missed ya!
And note our next TPS is AUGUST 31 @ The Drake Hotel.
