    MVP of every team

    I've got to dispute some of these, nothing but love of course. There are other ones I had other thoughts on, but these I'm certain of. Bills - QB Bills is a near perfect QB, only limited by his 13MS, who's 81 PC turns Lofton and Reed into absolute studs at WR, CC's galore. As good as Thurman is, his reception stat isn't as big of a factor, as you don't have a Johnny Bailey level player to replace him at tailback, and you already have Lofton and Reed on the outside, and QB Bills is throwing to him already. His BC stat does put him on a similar plane as Bo, but the teams he will face have elite defenses that can bottle him up, mainly the Giants. Is he a factor? Absolutely, but QB Bills makes this team go in the hands of elite players. Thurman is another cog in the no huddle machine. Patriots - Ronnie Lippett is an elite defender for that tier. As good as Marv is, players can key on his whereabouts when defending the Pats. He's a one trick pony on a terrible offense, and get the ball to him can be a chore, or a gamble. Wilson is known to lob it over his head, or into the hot dog vendor. The Pats themselves have multiple usable man defenders, and I think Lippett stands out more vs his opposition. Chiefs - DT, a defender so great, teams will change their playbook to run directly at him to neutralize him, and even then, he is often able to defeat the blocking scheme. As LB1's go, only LT is more feared. His only downside being a low INT stat of 19. Redskins - both Ricky Sanders(maximum speed) and Art Monk(hitting power) at WR are better options than Gary Clark. Not having your WR popcorned on a run by LB Keith Millard is a big deal in the extremely popular Vikes - Skins matchup. In the hardcore format, Sanders is often used as a RB, making him even more effective and irreplaceable. Sanders is my MVP. Cardinals - The safety tandem is enough to lock down most teams in their tier alone. Lonnie Young is an elite defender, with obnoxious speed. As good as Johnny's speed is for the tier, the hidden stats aren't enough to impact the way that Lonnie Young does.

    Cleveland, OH - 08/04/18 - Tecmo (Jam) Cleveland 2018

    If you want me to wear one during the broadcast, I'm XXL.
  3. As promised here is the continued $20 beat me at mk2 challenge I offer at every tournament I attend now. @sonofpatbeach enjoy
  4. Strong possibility of covering this location again via TGFN. Will know probably in August for sure.
  5. Internet was solid there, nice setup for the stream station, food and drinks solid, and the location was easy to get to.
  6. I hope all is well there. The fairly "routine" 15-20 minute procedure turned into a 90 minute surgery + 3 week recovery for me. Fortunately for me, and the rest of humanity, I'm shooting blanks, and #3rdbeebe is the last of my line. And for good measure, here's a classic video on keeping your balls clean.
  7. Make sure to watch the stream. Here's the link to the entire broadcast from twitch.tv/tgfnretro
  8. Time permitting, the $20 Genesis mk2 challenge is available on random select to whomever can beat me.
  9. Huge announcement!

    Columbus, OH - 05/19/18 - Tupa Bowl IV

    This was a very memorable weekend for me. I get greeted at the airport by @mort1237 and @kevincabarello who treated me like royalty. I responded by demanding a Waffle House visit, and my subjects happily obliged. Armed security, drunk women, chefs cooking with cell phones in one hand, and an impending drug deal witnessed by Mort kicked off an amazing weekend. All that was missing was a Hepatitis C infection. We hit the Old North Arcade, where nearly everything is on free play, then went our separate ways as we all had a big day on Saturday. Nice selection of games, and of course I did some damage on the Mortal Kombat machines. At the recommendation of Kevin, we locked down a prepaid ATT hot spot with a built in Ethernet port based on his connection quality off his phone. In 9 hours of streaming Saturday, we didn't drop a single frame. @Jim Socks 13, @Woodshed, Eric Kuhlman, The Retro Sports Gamer, Louis, Mort, and The Ultimate Weapon all made guest appearances on the color mic. It was an absolute riot. The afforementioned Jim Socks and Woodshed opened with their own version of "In the Ware Tonight", which I believe is available on the Retro Sports Gamer Channel on Youtube. It's not to be missed. The setups were a plenty, and Kevin balanced playing, organizing with tenacity. Louis and Mort were a big help setting up early. The staff was friendly, the food was delicious, and the overall event a 10/10 in my book. Way to go Mort for your victory, Joemama winning the Silver bracket, and Kevin for running a kickass event! Here's to next year!

    Happy to be working this with you. It will be my first out of state tournament experience ever. Been working diligently on the stream setup, and picked up the prepaid hotspot with Ethernet on it with the provider you suggested based on your own experience there. As I do with any retro tournament now, if a Genesis is setup, and anyone wants to challenge me to mk or mk2, $20 awaits the first person to beat me on real hardware on a CRT. We are certain to have some pauses in there. In 17 years I have not parted with this $20. With the world's Tecmo hordes massed against me, I can only hope there is one among you who is able to deliver to me, "a beautiful death".
