  1. Trying to make this work. With the Browns opening game September 9th, its hard to get two weekends away in the same month. But definitely interested, forecast is 70% at this point.
  2. So mad/sad I missed this EXPERIENCE. Its like when your friends all go on an awesome, one of a kind trip and you can't make it cause a family member died. All the while you're just thinking about what you're missing out on. Good show fellas
  3. Hey Jim, I live in Georgia now, but I'm from Ironton, Ohio.

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/meet-40-box-play-every-nes-game-ever-154345315.html Before I order, will this have a lag when hooked to an HD TV? I apologize for not knowing what the aspect ratio means...
  5. A musical offering for the Tecmo gods. May the sound of song appease our CC sins...

    Coin Toss Selection

    My main question is has anyone lost a major tournament game and thought "If I would have won the coin toss in order to get P1 or took P1 after the matchup call I would have had it"? I know everyone has their preference but again thats a preference and not a real advantage. I hope that every TSB player has played from both sides and know that they might be forced to play from P2. The only advantage is the onside kick and if you need to get that at some point the chances are slim, I'll let Bru provide the percentages. And to be clear, I prefer the old way. But I'll take matchup over controller preference any day of the week as most have already stated. Bottom line is not everyone is gonna be happy with whatever is/was decided. It still beats the hell out of predetermined or tiered match-ups. And finally, rules tweaks rules schmeeks. Just ball out brothers! Can't wait to see everyone
  10. A friend sent this tournament to me. It is the original Tecmo Bowl so I probably won't be attending but thought I'd share. Nice prizes for the winner (32" Smart TV & NES Classic). You can read about it/sign up here: http://staydriven.org/tecmobowltournament/

    Columbus, OH - 05/14/16 - Tecmo Columbus: Tupa Bowl II

    Kev did an amazing job of putting this thing together. It ran smooth and Kevin killed it by running the whole show pretty much by himself while playing in the tourney as well. Granddads Pizza was a great host as well. I felt this tournament was tight knit, meaning that I really got to know a small group of guys. All of them being 100% awesome, DT in particular. That guy made me laugh so many times throughout the day. I hate that he is heading back west but hope to see him again soon. Mort and Louis are a great time to play Tecmo with but probably a better time to go out with after. I feel that I owe Louis more than the 3 Spotted Cows I gave him as guilt pay for winning two games that I shouldn't have. I guess the serenading we did pre-tournament swooned the Tecmo Gods in my favor. Diaz.....well if anyone has met Diaz you already know, and if you haven't you're missing out. His wife was also incredibly cool with just hanging out all day and mingling with us Tecmo dudes. Matt Miller I've talked to a good bit at other tourneys and always very gracious. I agree that he needs some beer penalty imposed every tournament! JK the guy is darn good. I think I went 9-2 overall but won't break it all down. I lost to Mort 24-21 in semi-finals and Matt got me 17-3 in tournament play after i beat him in a pickup the first game of the day. Should have saved the Pittsburg matchup for our game. I think about 4 of my wins came from Pittsburg. Some of the pictures are of the amazing door prizes, Mort winning the most passing yards with Tupa, SNES shenanigans at 16 bit, and all the final 8 guys. If I missed something or someone, I apologize. After 10:00 it all became a brown out.
  13. Made a quick video from the few minutes of footage I got this year. Sorry it took so long, just been pretty busy. Thanks again to not only Josh, Chet, and the whole Madison crew but the entire Tecmo community as well. “It was a train full of strangers, and they were all the same.”
