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

Recommended Posts

I feel morally obligated to fly to the front, and protect my North Dakota brethren. These will likely be the last words you read from me. If you or your children ever find yourself near what we now know as Davenport, North Dakota, look for the red marker northeast of the great dirt road, which includes the following message of hope:

 

Tecmo Ryder Cup - Madison Team

November 8, 2014

The Place Beyond the Wasteland

“Rage against the dying of the Dwight”

 

I recall being told by sonofpatbeach to get busy living or get busy dying--that's goddamn right. 
 
For the second time in my life I'm guilty of committing a crime: a Ricky Proehl violation. Of course I doubt they'll throw up any BoBlocks for that, not for an old Caravello like me.
 
I find I'm so excited I can barely sit still or hold a controller in my hand. I think its the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain.
 
I hope I can make it back across the border. 
 
I hope to see my friend and shake his hand. 
 
I hope the Landetta is as glorious as it is in my dreams. 
 
I hope.

 I will be posting videos on this site that were shown during the event as well as revealing one Tecmo trading card each day until the full set is revealed (51 days of card reveals). 

 

"This year I will practice Tecmo every day until Madison." 

 

Both of these are the same phrase, wrapped in a different drapery of lies. Nonetheless, I announce to you another card reveal!

GarbageTSB and I were discussing the literature on the trading cards in the midst of the Ryder Cup. I informed him that, unlike some of my phrases, the words on these cards are incapable of telling a lie!

      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

      View File This is a remastered edition of Tecmo NBA Basketball 2018 for NES emulators that I released over a year ago.  To go along with updated team logos, one of the huge changes is the update to team simdata.  What this means is that the Warriors will play like Warriors, the Knicks will play like a dumpster fire, the Bulls don't play with the ghost of Michael Jordan twenty-five years later, etc.
       
      Enjoy!
