Good Morning! I'm no Laggy, but I thought I would continue the tradition of making a "Teams" list for the 2021 Facebook Hacker Cup Finals, since I always found the ICPC World Finals lists fun. So here goes!
Facebook Hacker Cup 2021 Finalists

Post-Contest Livestream (on Facebook)
Yep, be sure not to miss all the excitement in the post-contest livestream, during which Zef and I reveal the final scoreboard! Get excited--I'll see you Saturday!
