Description

I couldn't resist attending Ignite Seattle!  A bridge building competition held in downtown Seattle to unite those with a little competitive edge.  Okay, it was way more then just a popsicle bridge building competition but that's what got me excited.  We will also have more coverage Thirteen teams either had their bridges crushed by the weight of another human or they literally broke the scale.  This was such a fun event and Bre Pettis from I make things was in true passionate, and I must say adorable form.

      I like the "bump...siss...bump...siss" background music you've got running through it.

      Nice. Seems like a fun event. Back in high school I built a bridge like these, and let me tell you I would've finished about three spots below last at Ignite Seattle. I think my bridge held about 6 pounds. But, this event seemed more about the fun and the people than the competition. Good people having a good time.

      P.S. I was pulling for Gwen.

      That looked like a world of fun!  I was wondering when we would see the return of Bre on 10.  He's like an unofficial correspondent for 10 and needs more coverage.

      I really like Bridge building competitions.  I made one out of spaghetti and another out of popsicle sticks in high school.  Popsicle sticks are fun, but I liked the spaghetti challenge a little more.  Always remember to go with a triangle frame or use triangles and I beams in the superstructure if you can't make an arch, I guarantee it works every time.

      I loved your interview with Gwen.  She was very bright!  Kids are great.  There are never enough children on 10.

      Let me buy you a beer next time.  Great segment, Tina.  Your fumbled exit and hip hop voiceover were well worth it!
