The time has come again for another YA Crush Tourney!  I can't believe this will be our 3rd crush tournament. We hope you are as excited as we are about this one!  We have some new guys and some old flames which promises for something completely different.  We also have a great set of advocates this year.  Please go and follow their blogs and twitter to stay up to date with everything concerning the tournament.  Also, follow the hashtag #YACRUSHTOURNEY on twitter for information.  The tournament will kick off next Wednesday, June 12th.  Join your teams, get plenty of sleep, check out any of the new crushes that you don't know yet, and get ready to have a great time!
