-sanford came even closer to beating justin… you really felt the silence saturday night during the last game (score ended up being 4-3 in the second set, justin)
-huge thanks to rob sigley, justin wong, pete talley, exodus, josh wigfall, jeron grayson, and a few others for helping me run the tournaments and making things as smooth as can be
-thanks to rob for the extra setup for ggxx, i hope you don’t fail your exams and blame me ;p
-i had too much to keep track of, so i couldn’t have the kareoke revolution or golden tee tournaments… maybe next time
-explain to me why people bet $100 on literally a coin toss?!! (video to be up soon)
-stay tuned for the info on ecc9, a formal announcement will be up within the week; i promise. i shall call it… resentment…
-i require sleep, ggpo and hope everyone had fun!
