I have to say a giant THANKS!!! to Jeeps. He was a wonderful host and made my trip awesome. He is a great guy that goes out of his way to make you feel welcome. His only drawback is that hes an uninformed liberal :)

I would also like to thank Raveling for putting me up for my last night there. It was great besides having to stay in the same room as Thomas. Also I am the world champ at key break.

I met a ton of great people over the weekend and everyone was nicer than I thought. Sorry if I offended you Casey with the comment about the Jew vs Christian championship game. My wife was very upset with me after I told her I said that.

That was me that played against you with the profit matchup Pistone. It was a great game and I don't feel bad that I lost.

You know what I'm talking about. This is just like that time Captain Picard wanted Luke to go with Treebeard but Luke was all "I don't know what you're talking about, do you mean this dragon I caught?" and Captain Picard was all NO RETARD, I mean go with that tree and Luke just kept talking to his friends Anakin and Jar-Jar and then he left Picard on Mordor and forgot about it completely. I love that episode.

Quoted from an email my wife sent me.

Oh that would have made me smile and I would have given up the game right there.

No offense taken. I only turned you down cause I didn't like the matchup (with good reason) and I only take bets I know I can win.

Wasn't really anti-Jewish if you look at it that way, more pro-Palestinian, but the big thing was the huge map of Palestine, which was actually just a map of Israel, except with the entire country labeled as Palestine, with the Palestinian flag colored over the whole thing, and Israel nowhere to be seen, which is the same image Ahmadinijhad (dunno how to spell that, the Iranian guy) has been waving around when he says that Israel should be "wiped off the map." I found the whole experience kinda funny in a "crap if I get found out in here I'm gonna die" kind of way.

btw casey i apologize if i offended you with any comments i made in or around that jew/christian championship match, i was totally off my game all weekend. when you asked me if kyle krueger was jewish i meant to say "the south park Kyle is jewish and that's all that matters when you want to pick on a kid named kyle" but i prolly said something offensive. because i'm a d1ck.

props (by the way) to kyle for his amazing comeback to me saying "i'm a d1ck" -- "You are what you eat." oh and also for getting 2nd at some tournament.

props to KTOD for taking home the mugs again. give the rest of us a chance to win the coolest trophies ever, mkay?

props to kevin shannon for winning some tournament i guess. he's pretty cool, but when i woke up sunday morning i realized how it must've happened....he was sleeping with chris the whole time. i guess that's how you win worlds, sleep with the TD. wish i'd gotten a pic, but it's evidently against party rules for the groom to bring a camera. with good reason. i prolly would have vomited on it.

that last prop kind of got away from itself.

props to the Newsroom for having the best lasagna i have ever tasted (or vomited up).

props to the Rebel Strike Team in all it's glory taking both 2nd and 2nd-to-last at worlds this year, in close-to-order of finish: Kyle Krueger, Mike French, Steven Harpster, Jesse Reynolds, Joe "Redbeard the Pirate" Olson, Chris Wirfs, Buddy Walters, and the absentee Phil Aasen.

props to all my varied opponents: brian fred, brian hunter, pete from "pete and re-pete", brady owens, james booker, johnny chu, garret raveling, chris fanchi (who has the uncanny ability to elis out of the cantina when i'm about to start a BRAWL), clone hidden base guy, and of course his emminence the Emperor Scott Lingrell (who gave me my biggest win of the weekend, thanks buddy! you prolly had the worst starting hand EVOR in that game, it couldn't have been much fun).

props to various and sundry cool dudes i talked to this weekend, like chris showandtell, tom hollingworth (who beat jesse senseless in the team tourney), nick kolnick, bradley ei0r, mike pistone, noah franke, justin desai (your terminator dance will be fondly remembered for a long time), mike gemme, the cute girl at the dairy queen counter, the cute waitress at the Newsroom who i prolly made an idiot of myself in front of, and of course Throdo. and naturally i'm forgetting a lot of folks, but don't worry you're cool too. esp steve baroni, you were on my fantasy team again and YOU DON"T DISAPPOINT, SIR. wish i had picked kyle too instead of my ridiculous brother.

props to my brother for being ridiculous on this trip, in every good and bad sense of the word. don't ever ask him for directions, btw =)

slops to the Dean Martin-i for being more than i could handle. damn you alcohol, you made a fool out of me for the last time! (prolly not)
