Philly Americans, Dc arsenal, damage and ground zero made up for most of east coasts wins. Philly made up for most of those though.
I don't really consider Heat to be a Texas team. Other than the 2 new kids it is a Philly/Russian conglomerate. Although I am a Florida boy I still consider California to be the Mecca of paintball. Dang it really hurts to say that.

All you're doing is trading earthshakes for hurricanes and crazy meth heads in Florida. At best you're even.

Cali used to be the mechanic, now it’s Texas though. I was using heat as a Texas team, because If we do it by your set of rules, then technically impact is a California/west coast team, we could do it that way but then you’d have to chalk up a about another 15-20 wins for the west coast.

I was in Sarasota last month, I’m considering moving out there, it’s beautiful weather during this time but I’d be a bit concerned of the summers.

I grew up in Sarasota. Siesta Key is one of the worlds top rated beaches. It has gotten VERY expensive to live in Sarasota. I highly recommend it.... if you have a very good job. Be sure to stop by the Daquiri Deck and try the Decksycle. Our humidity is like your winters... you get used to it..... after a few years

C'mon man, nothing tops San Fran with its interactive homeless poop and syringe maps.

And hurricanes' affect every state on the gulf of Mexico and eastern seaboard and the whole west coast also, they just dont call them hurricanes on the west coast.

Well its hot in the summer but once you replace the snow in your boots with sand you get used to the heat.

And we dont really have riots here, almost 10 percent of the population are armed.

The largest F-150 selling dealership in the world is just outside Tampa.

Dem country boys like their pickups.

No matter where you live you have problems. I spend half the year running in terror from tornadoes and the other half the year trying to avoid frostbite.

Well from what I keep hearing Portland was getting close, then again Portlanders love to ***** about Portland. At least that was until Covid basically turn it into a ghost town.

That derecho that hit last summer was worse than any tornado Iíve ever seen. The damage looked comparable but was 20 miles wide and a few hundred miles long. Tornadoes are maybe a 1/4 mile wide and stay down for a couple miles. We had a category 3 land hurricane.

I don't envy people who live in that area. Here in Indiana we get baby tornadoes that mess up a little bit of houses sometimes. It's usually straight line winds that do the damage. Nobody worries too much about the tornado because the chances of getting hit are very slim. Further West they get what I can only imagine is living hell. The one that hit Joplin and turned a good sized city into match sticks was horrifying.

That's a fine and upscale venue from what I have heard....

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
