Thanks again to @Bad Moon Rison for hosting another awesome NYC Tournament. Apologies for having to ghost not long after my loss, but I was presented with a dinner opportunity that I could catch if I hurried. Brian, Ryan and crew do an amazing job. I am thoroughly impressed every year. Thanks again for hosting, guys!


I'm also glad to see @Ranatoro won, because I lost to him in the quarter finals. Funny story about my quarter finals loss...

MIN (me) vs. MIA (him). 7-7 at the very end of the 4th. Near my own end zone. I go to throw a Hail Mary to Anthony Carter as time expires. Wade Wilson is by my end zone line. A Dolphins defender bot jumps and blocks my pass at the line. The ball floats in the air backwards and out of the Northern side of the end zone. Incomplete? NOPE. How about end zone safety glitch for FOR THE LOSS. I lost 7-9 because of this blocked pass safety glitch!


Hey, if I'm gonna lose, might as well be memorable. And to be fair, Ranatoro fumbled the ball about 3 times that game, so I feel like the TSB Gods were throwing him a bone for getting screwed throughout the entire game.

This was a ton of fun and a run I'll never forget.  In addition to the crazy glitch ending @Yak mentioned, I had to pull out a super tough round of 16 game against @discdolo who had beaten me in group play. He was up most of the game but I caught him at the end to win 14-13.  I was very happy to make it to the quarterfinals, and after beating Danny K I was thrilled to make it through to the semis. 


Then getting through @tadaos and @MattyD at the end, both of last year's finalists and three time champs between them, was just completely unexpected. Over a decade after winning the OTFL and HSTL championships, I can add a live tournament crown to the list.  What a thrill.


Thanks again to @Bad Moon Rison for another great event.  See you all next time.
