xTREME Accounting

From the Associated Press:

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A five-member team of students from Providence College has placed first in a national accounting competition.

The team came ahead of four others at the xTREME Accounting competition this month in New York City. The Providence College team is known as "The Consolidators" and includes one student from North Scituate, R.I., three from Massachusetts and one from New York.

Patrick Kelly, head of the accounting department, said the victory was like the college's basketball team winning the national championship.

The other schools competing were the University of California, Berkley; the University of Texas; the University of Washington; and Villanova University.

Providence College competed in the finals in 2009.

Go, Rhode Island! Brutal, bloody, pencil-to-pencil, spreadsheet-to-spreadsheet gridiron victory!

Odds are they will ALL be looking for a different line of work in the future because accounting is DULL BORING AND AWFUL! This link brought to you by the league for fighting chartered accountancy. :coolsmile:

DirecTV will be doing a TON of accounting for having lost all their local channel feeds right as the playoff game began today worldwide. Good thing I had me old rabbit ear antenna and tin foil hat to get it off the air locally.
