wow, crazy awesome stuff Smile. was anyone expecting tom f (aka citizen swanky on holotable) to do that well? I was expecting tom h to be up there, interesting to see a different regular online player take out day 2..
lol. I think I told him word for word after our holotable tourney game that I would not be surprised to see him in Day 3. citizenSwanky is a good player. Congratulations, man.

Those photos are wonderful, nice to see somebody cover it.

I wrote up a day 2 report on decktech if anyone is interested, it's kinda sketchy though cuz I'm pretty tired.

You realize the card store was west of the Mississippi right?

So now that we've gotten a west coast worlds out of the way, I demand a midwest worlds next year! :-)

Bah, I guess the whole joke failed 'cos the store is actually a couple miles east of the river.

My thoughts from the pics...

Pink sleeves are so last year...

LOL at Joe Olson's beard (also a little envious).

Is Booker wearing a T. Owens Philly jersey and a Bills hat?

Wow Game 5 is when the heavy weights started playing each other

Shaw vs. Hunter
M. French vs. Chu
Desai vs. Pistone

So Kevin and Aaron were the lone WYS players? I assume similar build to the text MPC.

Great smile, lol!

Props to Raveling for the Jersey switch during in between rounds.

Props to Bobby for wearing his Team Stephenville shirt!!!

I have used them at every event THIS year and they have served me quite well, thank you very much. I stole them from my lady :)

Your assumption is wrong. Remember, when you ASSUME, you make an ASS out of U and, well just U actually. :) We dropped the spies from WYS and played more smugglers, and of course Lt s'Too Vees who is amazing in that deck.

I didn't play against Justin this weekend. I think I was playing Gemme that game, and he thoroughly owned me with his awesome BHBM list.

There's no such thing as a real "Worlds" in Minnesota in OCTOBER!

A real "Worlds" only takes place at GenCon during the Summer!

Hmm, that's a fair point... :? We should have a poll to see if Kevin gets to keep the trophy. 8)

Riiiighhhhttt!! You sir are retarded. Kevin Shannon is a World Champion and there's no asterisk or shenanigans involved.
