Event report
Thursday-
Got to the field about 1-1:30 hoping to meet up with the Jersey boys. I guess I was about 30 seconds to late as they passed me on the way into the park, they were headed back to the hotel. Oh well, Ill meet up with them later. I ran into JB who, as usual, was super busy. Then I walked the field by myself while I talked to some guy named Danny Martin on the phone. The field was placed in, what I thought, was an odd spot as there was a big crown in the field, and turf layed over dirt in the D-side. After walking the field I hung out with John and Jason from Understood and got to see all the new hotness (and there was a lot) as it was taken out of the box. Arthur (the guy from the Chicago Wiseguys) arrived soon after that and he and I walked the field again. While on the field the Jersey kids (Matt, Mike, and Eamon) showed up so we did some stratagizing, and a lot of BSing, they are all good dudes. Scott wasnt able to make it that night since he had to move furniture, so I set up the paint deal with JB.
Friday-
Got to the field and watched some 7man games, and get ready for our games. About an hour before our games started a helicopter started flying at a fairly low altitude over the field. Ill give you 1 guess who that was. Shortly before our games started a tall shaved headed man brought an OT jersey for one of the guys to wear, again you only get one guess. Now it was our turn to bring the pain. We lost our first game. Won our second. Took our third to time, but had the pull so we technically won it. The third game is where the story is for day one. It came down to a 2 on 2 and I got bounced but I still called the ref in to check me since I didnt wanna cost us the game. As he was checking me I started taking a lot of heat on the d side of my bunker so when I was called clean I decided I would shoot the snake side. I shot the snake player, but not thinking that left the d-side open for a run through that took out me, and Arthur. I felt like **** from that. After the games Amanda, Mandi and I all went to dinner where all I could think about was Arthur's comment..."You have to stay in your lane. We won that game if you shoot the guy that ran us." Mentally and physically exhausted we went back to the room. Though I was extremely tired I still managed to give Amanda he ring I bought her for our anniversary (am I romantic or what?)
Saturday-
8am games suck. No one wants to play that early. Can we put in a petition to move the first game to like 9:30? The story of the day here was reffing, or the lack there of. In the first game 3 of us shot a guy who was trying to run through, the ref finally pulls him after he shoots me in the throat. As the ref is pulling him I hear "Player your playing on"...isn't that a 1for 1? Yeah I thought so. 2nd game we won. 3rd game we won. 4th game against Iron Legion we lost. That put us 3-1-4 for the tourney. We checked the board and saw that we were seated 7th going into Sunday and would be in the dance.
Sunday-
Again with the 8am games...ugh. We had to play "Toxic" who was seated 2nd. They played good the 1st game, but we beat them. The 2nd game we lost on a questionable call. The 3rd game we lost Arthur early, but still had a shot. I rolled my gun like I never had before, but couldn't get the paint to break on a bad guy. I was pulled on a pack hit, but still thought we had a shot. Matt came off next, and now it was gonna be rough since it was only mike left in the snake, and Eamon left in the carwash against 3 Toxic players. Eamon traded out with one of the Toxic players leaving Mike all alone in the snake. He battled like a champion but was taken down by the remaining 2. What can I say? We got outplayed. As of right now I dont know the final standings, but it cant be worse than 8th. I spent the majority of the long car ride home wondering what I could have done different. What we could have done different. You know what I came up with? Nothing. This team played like a championship team. For a bunch of guys who had never played together as a whole, who had just met for the 1st time on Thursday, to play on Sunday is unheard of in this sport. It just shows that the heart of OT is what matters, not what bodies we have on the field.

Now to the thank you's...
Thank you as always to Jr Brown and all of XSV for all the support you give us. We would be a team if it wasn't for you guys.
Thank you to John from Understood, I don't think you even know how much you mean to this team.
Matt, Mike, Eamon, and Arthur, XSVOT couldn't have played this event without you guys. Thanks for stepping up and making it happen. Consider yourselves OT extended family
Scott, you are my OT brother. Thank you for helping me put this team together, and for fronting the money. Just remember we don't shake hands...we hug.
Josh...Quack Mother ****er! Quack!
Mandi, for making sure my wife made it safe and sound. Im glad you had a good time at the event.
And of course Amanda for supporting everything I do. Im so lucky to have you in my life.

Ok boys. Time to start thinking DC!!!

I think I figured out where Matt's missing pod disappeared to during the Hawaiian game. Check it out at 1:20.



We also have a breakout at 3:43.

Good playing with you guys. See you in jersey.

Looks like for now not much. I bet in the future the hosting changes over to the new company and that's when they will start changing things.
