Okay ... you have GOT to lose that gayazz font color, bro!
So far as Skyball goes, I think that will probably be our only 5-man event this year, outside of World Cup (I want to play both 5 and 10, I'll have to see how many of the guys want to run both that week)
BY THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Check out yours truly and his heretofore unknown badass team in this month's Paintball2Xtremes
! (the article about Tawneytown)
I think it important to mention that the "Muppet Slayers" BARELY edged us out of 1st place ... and by most unscrupulous means, I might add! Due to the fact that JC (also known as "muppet" amongst some of his friends and he was captain of said "Slayers" team) is a friend of mine, I won't totally elaborate ...
Ah, the hell with it, yes I will!
Seeings how this was an Open Class event, we were allowed to have one pro player per team. JC, of Bad Company fame, stretched the technicalities of that rule by claiming that one of the members of his ad hoc team was actually not a pro player despite being on Bad Company's roster, "He only played at World Cup for us, and he still has his Am.B card from earlier in the season."
Yeah, dude ... we hear ya!
Not only that, in our game against JC's team-for-a-day. we stalemated them in the finals, although JC was given credit for the flag pull. JC overstepped himself when he ran to the 50 and grabbed the flag; when he pulled back after grabbing said flag, he overstepped behind the stand-up bunker and got zippered by Rizzo as well as me. The Marb yellow and El Tigre orange all up and down his back was impossible to miss.
What killed me was the fact that I thought for CERTAIN that I popped him at least once between his bunker (my mirror) and the 50. Anyhow, a few minutes later the game ended in a stalemate; it was 1-on-1 and Rizzo was unable to get a clean shot on their back right eagle. As I was walking out of the dead box towards JC, I noticed a conspicuous orange glob of paint and some shell on the side of his head.
Now, I'm not saying anything here, but ...
I walked up to my buddy and noticed his impish smile. I tapped my fingers on the side of his head, "You cheatin' mother****er!!! I ****in' nailed on you that run to the 50, you B!TCH!"
"Naw man," he said with that typical muppetass smile of his, "you hit me when I accidently poked out beyond the front of the standup when I was pulling the flag!"
"Oh mannnnnn... give me a ****in' break, bro! Your head was never showing!"
"Oh, that's right ... you nailed me when I stepped back beyond the other side of that standup, then." His guilty and oversized smile beaming even larger.
"Bull ****, dude!" I said while totally incapable of holding back a laugh, "this isn't practice, man, this is a tourny! You ****in' cheatin' piece of ****! They don't have that '7 hit rule' of yours, alright?!?!!"
JC laughed and insisted that I did not hit him, "Dude, it must've been one of your bro's on the other side of the field then..."
"Naw, man, Tommy was shootin' yellow too. I think I'm the only one using this crappy El Tigre this afternoon, bro."
JC put his arm around my shoulder and laughingly added, "Hey, it's all good, dude, the ref was right there, he called me out. So what if I got the flag first? We didn't roll you guys and we both still took 1st and 2nd just like we've been saying we would all along!"
As I gave him a friendly smack upside the back of his nappy head I said, "Yeah, yeah, yeah, whatever dude ... you're still a cheatin', pukin'-***, can't-hold-his liquor, muppet-haired, big smiled biotch!"
I've always enjoyed shootin' that muppet ... I can guarantee that he'll be on the receiving end of many a bonus ball at practice from now on!!!
Of course, I already have a reputation for doing that to anybody on the opposing team whose arm and/or gun is not clearly raised ...
But ya know what? We did well that day. The 2nd highest overall score of the day and a mere 20 points behind 1st in the finals (those, of course, being an ill-gained 20 pts, I might add
) Not only that, but after all the attention and media coverage that Justice got over the past year, it was nice that both of our teams absolutely mowed through them like we did. I got a certain, impish pleasure out of seeing our picture on the Tawneytown website
while theirs (4th place) was conspicuously missing...
Sorry Dale, sorry Stephen ... you KNOW I had to say that! See you fools on the big fields this year!
