Better than Dinner

Better than Dinner is the name of the PW intramural softball team, begun in the spring of 2006. The team was captained/created by Brian Christian '06 as part of a desire to rejuvenate the tradition of a PW intramural softball team, which had not existed since 2003 or before, and which had gone under the name Kicking and Screaming, a name of unknown origins which are believed to trace back to Gabriel Kahane '03.

The name Better than Dinner comes from a slogan by that name that has been prominently displayed underneath the box office window. The slogan itself comes from an inspirational letter/mission statement from a small Houston theatre (passed from David Myers '03 to Emily Drumsta '06) also up on the box office window about how theatres are not in competition with each other, they're united in a fight against dinner. It's much more inspirational than that though. As a softball team name, it implies that the PW board (a) prefers playing softball to eating dinner, or (b) plays softball better than a dinner could play softball.
