Fargo, ND - 11/15/14 - Tecmo Ryder Cup

Recommended Posts

It is with great disappointment to announce that neither a Team Vogt, a Team Midwest Tecmo nor a Team Ohio will be making the trek for the Ryder Cup this year. I don't have to spat out excuses other than it just isn't the best option for just about all of us.

But those interested on our end were:

1. Derek Ruble, TecmoPyscho

2. Chris Vogt, VogtCD11

3. Matt Vogt, BigMV11

4. Jimmy Vogt, LilLefty021

5. Joey Vogt, 513boy4life

6. Ryan Stewart, Ryan11p

It would be so much fun and worth it to make this trip and play in a tourney that isn't your traditional elimination tourney. Just not this year.

Thanks, Leonardite, for putting this together. Hoping there will be some sort of stream set up in order for us to watch how much fun we will be missing. Good luck to all!

A hot spot right in the middle of everybody is Chicago/Indianapolis.... that would work for many I would assume?  I'm obviously not good enough to be Ryder Cup material and would love to attend one, however, ND is just way too far for any teams really east of Chicago to legitimately make it.  Kinda blows  :(

The "Ryder Cup" is the brainchild of the Wisconsin and Minnesota crews. While heavily intoxicated and nostalgic for Tecmo, we, the North Dakotans, said it would be a blast if we could host the event. Our wish was granted and now here we are, hosting it in the state where the geological center of North America resides.

We will be hosting a one-of-a-kind event that will be lamented by those that are unable to attend. Madison has proved to be a destination event location in the Tecmosphere and we are hoping to follow siut. North Dakota might not be the most economical location, bit I'll be damned if the experience isn't entirely top notch.

I'd be interested in being part of Team Minnesota!!

 

We still have an opening for Team MN. Right now it's still Ed, Sconnie, and I and we're working the phones (forums, email) for a fourth.

I'm definitely interested in playing.  I've got to secure the spouse pass, so let me know if my services are needed and I can work out the details and join a squad.  I can also haul a 19 incher and an NES/game/controllers.   Plus I've got a TV (phallus joke)


 


Easiest way for me to make it is to trek up through Minneapolis, so I can join forces with Team WI or MN there, or meet team NE up in the tundra that is Leonard, ND.  Obviously I will take advantage of the free lodging.


 


My only other question would be "where da white women at!!!??!?!?"

If there's anything we've got, it's white women.

 

Glad to hear you are likely making the trek!  The TV situation isn't nearly as difficult for this as it is with an elimination tournament, but we'll let you know if we need it.  I would highly encourage everyone to take advantage of the free lodging.  There are plenty of beds, couches, and reasonably comfortable spots to crash, and it is at the same location as the final events and kegs.  That's a good combination.

 

All told, we've got some pretty good ideas percolating right now.  How they play out in real life is always up in the air, but a lot of beer seems to smooth out any rough edges.

This topic needs some juice. As team MN captain, I'm watching this video once a day until the Cup:

Thanks for juicing this thing up, QB_Browns. This forum is paling in comparison to what we are planning at the event. If it comes to fruition like it is dancing in our minds, it will be a ridiculously enjoyable event.

 

Also, who's coming? We can mix and match 4 teams so far if we really try hard. 5 teams if I squint and drink a fifth of Wild Turkey.

A question mark (?) by the name means, "I don't actually know but am assuming this is correct. Please let me konw ASAP." Here we go:

 

Team North Dakota -- Bob Nelson, Leonardite, Dr. Frolf, Bryce of Oxbow

Team Madison -- Chet, Josh, Rik, Garbage

Team Minnesota -- QB Browns, Ed, Sconnie and Eric. G (Viking Moe)?

Team Wisconsin with Free Agent-- Rico (Fulcher), Josh A (Coconuts), TL James (Dotdon)?, Gabriel J (Gabelikesbutts)?

Team Nation (All hypothetical) -- Dave Murray, Trevor O (Testaverde), Brian R. (Grogan), Travis R (Moulds33), Travis (Mystery Mention) or Eric O'Dell

 

Where the bloody hell is Orenga on this list?

 

We need to figure out numbers sooner than later so we can accommodate transportation. If everyone is willing to stay for free in Davenport on a couch/bed/floor/chair/sleeping bag, things would be much easier. Then we would only need transportation during one portion of the day versus 4 portions if most players are staying in Fargo. I think staying in Davenport would lead to the ambiance of the event, but that's just me. 

 

Jump on it.

Orenga = Garbagetsbplayer, on Team Madison.


 


VikingMoe seems questionable at best, so don't think we can rely on him for 4th MN spot.


 


I'm hearing rumblings from Milwaukee that the buzzsaw, Madison Tecmo V champ, is planning on attending. He would be the third man on team Greater Wisconsin.


 


P.S. "Good father? F*ck you! Go home and play with your kids!"

VikingMoe is a soft commit at best. Guy had an addition to his family, so the wife may not let him take a trip to Fargo so soon. We're still working the phones, email, and boards looking for a 4th.

 

At worst, if the Milwaukee/Greater Wisconsin team looks like a dud, we'll just take Orenga onto our team, Madison can take Coconuts, and Rico can play for the World team.

 

With those moves the following comes into play:

--Madison loses their worst player and can maybe become a contender at this thing with a strong top to bottom look

--Minnesota gets even more garbage on their roster and has a legitimate sacrificial lamb in the singles portion

--the World team gets a quality innings eater and Ryder Cup veteran presence to take some pressure off the new guys

I talked to Moulds today and neither of us will be attending. So with no Nebraska representation it looks like another unofficial Tecmo Ryder Cup. Good luck to all and we'll see everyone at Tomzcak Bowl.

 

You're both a disgrace to the great state of Nebraska.

Anyway, sorry we can't make it.  If there were 2 other NE guys willing I could maybe swing it.  But right now I don't think my liver or my wallet could take it.  I haven't played in months and my pregnant wife is still mad about my ALCS trip.  Hopefully next year!

Nebraska guys still interested -- why not give up on your state like the rest of the country has, and hitch your wagon to the world team? Be a part of something bigger than yourself. Stop whining about doing "your best," and be a winner like Sean Connery:

Update: So just had our 2nd baby girl 2 weeks ago. While all is well, happy, and healthy...it's been a lot of work having a newborn and a 2 year old.

 

I really would like to come and represent my state and Tecmo with honor, but it's a bit too much right now. Hopefully next year will be a different story, and I'd be honored to be considered for team MN in the future.

Thanks.

The two year anniversary of "I can't attend Madison because I knocked up my wife."

Yeah, this was another reason I really wanted to go.  I have a feeling I'm going to miss Madison and the Husker's first ever NCAA tourney win.  I'm never getting laid in June again. (probably was a lock anyway)

Alright, this heat that the state of Nebraska is taking on this board and the twitter-verse especially from sonofpatbeach, although justified, is unacceptable. Since I just recently discovered that my chances of going to the Tomaczak Bowl are in serious jeopardy I am throwing my hat back in the ring. If I am the only Nebraska citizen that will be attending here is what I am thinking...


 


Plan A: I pay for the weekend services of 3 strippers and have them read Mort's tecmo 101 thread. I show up wearing a top hat, fur coat, and cane and me and my 3 examples of horrible Nebraska parenting lay waste to competition.


 


Plan B: I humbly accept any invitation to any team that needs and extra player. Let it be known that your team will be acquiring a player this is now hell bent on not allowing sonofpatbeach and anyone associated with him win this event. I will do whatever it takes to see this happen even if that means using rufies, calling in bomb threats, or whatever. 


 


Since Plan A has some serious obstacles to overcome like the fact that strippers are illiterate and if my wife ever found out she would probably divorce me. So I am leaning towards Plan B right now. I have not played since May but it matters not because this Nebraska bashing has awaken the tecmo giant inside and he is very, very pissed off.

      Just looking to keep the local embers glowing. Let me know if you have any questions...
       
      Monona Tecmo is looking to kick things off Saturday, May 4th at 11:30 am at Village Lanes in Monona, WI. We are all greatly missing Tecmo Madison, so let's huddle up and play some games!

      Our first event, Tag Team Tecmo, will be a very casual gathering. We hope to attract noobs, seasoned vets, and maybe even bring a an old legend or two out of retirement.

      Tag Team Tecmo will pair players together on game day. No partner required! We want to team new players with vets, so the new players have a chance to learn something AND literally everyone has a chance at winning. Once teams have been assigned, sit down for a practice game with your partner before we start competitive play. In the event that an odd number of players are signed up, PunkyQB will leap over the top rope and get in the ring.

      Before diving in much deeper, we are stressing the casual nature of this event. We literally have no idea how much interest this may generate, so don't be surprised if the details change a little bit on game day.

      FORMAT
      ------------
      Tag Team Tecmo. Players will be assigned two man teams. Each player must play half of the game. You can do this one of two ways: 1) One player plays offense and the other plays defense. 2) Play by quarters. Each player must play two quarters. Teams can split that however they like. If a game goes into Overtime, and the team selected quarters, either player can play the first Overtime, but the other player must play the second. This would continue to alternate until the game is won.

      We'll jerk the curtain with an opening round of group play. The size of groups and number of group play games will depend on turnout.

      At the conclusion of group play, teams will be seeded for bracket play. If the number of entrants is small enough, bracket play will be double elimination. If we have too many players for double elimination, PunkyQB, will announce this prior to group play beginning. Bracket play will continue until one team takes the strap.


      RULES
      ----------
      We will use the standard tournament rules that are used for the National Championships at Tundra Bowl. http://www.tundrabowl.com/official-rules.html
      The team that is player 1, will have to declare their roles first - quarters or offense/defense. Player 2 will declare their roles thereafter.


      COST
      -------
      Ten dollars per player. This ten dollars can be paid in cash on the day of the event, or the money can be sent via PayPal using the Friends and Family option to [email protected] Please include a note with your name/tag.

      PAYOUT
      ------------

      One hundred percent of the entry fee will be paid out. Payout amount(s) will be based on turnout. If there is enough turnout we will payout beyond the champion.

      SIGNUP
      -----------
      Go ahead and click attending if you're game, but please complete this signup form: http://tinyurl.com/MTTagTeamSignUp
