Alright, guys. Time for me to put in my 2-cents. :wgrin:
First of all, here’s a link to all of the photos that I took at the BBQ:
Now, for the part that everyone looks forward to: shoutouts.
Hogosha: First and foremost, thanks for having all of us out! I had a great time, and an even better time meeting so many new faces. You know, I’ve still never got to play you. We need some Urien x Twelve action next time we meet!
Keela: Bro, what do I really need to say about the cabs that hasn’t been said in over-abundance already?! Man, thank you SOOO much for allowing us all to use them; it was a supremely rare treat! Fantastic games with you, bro. You’ve got a terribly frustrating Ibuki!
Murphagator:** I can’t thank you enough for putting us up for the weekend. Congratulations on taking 3rd in 3S. Man, you straight went Super-Saiyan during the tourney, pulling out all of the stops!!!
Wes: …bro, you’re a trip. First off, big congrats on taking 2nd in ST. Also, thanks for the “cold head”; quality stuff. Man, you’re hilarious!!! I really hope I meet up with you again at near-future tourneys. By the way, I’m still waiting for my $5000.
Tim/Sunny/Max/Yascha: How freakin’ refreshing was it for me to see (I still can’t believe this) 4 other Urien players?!?!?! Keep it up, you guys! We’ve gotta start reppin’ the Midwest and Urien harder and harder. Stick with it, and just work on those unblockables and Tackle shenanigans. It was a blast playing all four of you guys!!!
P.S. – I’m currently working on a Urien-exclusive FAQ. If you guys have any questions, feel free to look up my AIM or MSN name.
Olli: Bro, you’ve got a mad-sick Yun! Like Humbag said, I think you have the potential to get even better than you already are. Also, those sticks of yours are just awesome. I was thoroughly impressed when I learned that you were the person that had built them all! You’re cool people, bro. I really look forward to kickin’ it with you again!
Drew: So, the rivalry lives on… lol Bro, you have gotten so much better since I played you last at Gamma Bowl. Your execution is spot-on! Hopefully, you’re heading down to STL in May so we can butt heads again.
Jerry: Man, you’ve come a reeeeeeeeeeeally long way in Guilty Gear. Check you out, taking top 3 in all the tourneys you’re at nowadays. :woot: As always, it was great to see you again. I was really happy to hear that we’re going to start seeing you again soon. CRANK DAT 3S, BRO!!!
Jose: Huge congrats on taking 1st…and, I mean, or…2nd, err… Hey, Jose, nice job at DBQ BBQ!!! You’ve, seriously, got the most insane Ibuki I’ve witnessed. I was terrified through our whole match!! lol Like you said, you need to head down to Champaign sometime soon. You’ll always have a place to stay, so just say the werd. Werd.
Eric/Jim: Despite the fact that I knew who you guys were before DBQ, it was great to finally meet you, face to face. You guys are mad-chill. Way to wreck shop in both Guilty Gear and 3S!!! Eric, thanks again for hooking me up with your Al Green mix tape – it’s quality stuff, bro.
Prucha: (makes upside down 3 with fingers) lol Now that we have that out of the way, good to see you again, bro. I wasn’t expecting to see you there! Props on taking 1st in Guilty Gear, and on pad, no less. Hopefully, you’ll be down in STL next month. You’re cool as a fan, bro.
Adam (Swerve): It was nice to meet you, bro. I had a really nice time chillin’ with you this weekend! Now that you’ve shaken the cobwebs out, you can start getting back into the tourney scene. You should pick a nice weekend sometime soon, and come and chill with Humbag and me. Nice. Take care of that nice foot, and stop going around kicking nice brickwalls!!! Hope to see you again, nice and soon.
Lorance: Bro, every time I go somewhere with you, we end up robbing a bank or blowing up a post office or not paying for a pack of gum at the gas station. I don’t get how you can be so chill and be so goddamn hysterical at the same time!!! :amazed: Man, you were rockin’ cats in HNK this weekend. Shin for the win!!! Nice job, taking a fight from Prucha, too! :wgrin:
James: I dunno. I don’t really have much to say to you. I see you, like, every day, unfortunately. Rub-a-dub-dub, thanks for the grub. lol Thanks for riding out, and making me laugh so hard! You and Lorance are like the dynamic duo of road trip comedy!!! Let’s get ready for dem SLUTS, bro!!!
The Murphys: Coolest parents award, hands-down, goes to these folks. These people fed us and gave us a place to stay, literally, all weekend. Also, how dope was it of them to let um-teen thousand strangers just chill in their home until all hours of the morning?!?!?! Seriously, these folks are great. Murph, I hope you let them see this post.
Minnesota/Iowa/Wisconsin/Illinois in general: There are a lot of people that I didn’t have time to hit by name. However, there wasn’t a single person there that I wasn’t glad to see again (except for Patrick Duffy. I hope he’s not at the next tourney…) or meet for the first time, and I remember all of you. Next up: time for some SLUTS down in the STL, gents!!! Hope to see you guys there!!!
