    sonofpatbeach got a reaction from Leonardite in North Dakota - Burning Mort - The Tecmo Premier Experience   
    The spinning wheel games that my tribe faced, as I remember them (likely different from what happened)
    Each team sets the playbook for the other team. Flea flickers everywhere. I think Flo may have still been playing at this point? Regular Season, "No Picksies" set before the game. You got to choose the player that the other team could not be on defense. We choose Manny Hendrix because he was in Excellent, but I think average Holt killed us anyway. Ice Hockey game. I remember playing 1st and 3rd periods. I think @QB Browns was passed out by then. I didn't score any goals in the first period as I'd never played the game before, but I figured it out and scored a bunch in the third period. But we lost by a wide margin anyway  I think we finished that round 1-2. That  was some of the funnest Tecmo of my life.  I stand by my decision to skip all halftimes to force keg stands. At one point, Frolf and I discussed writing something in blood on the Mort #TecmoVI bracket, but it didn't materialize. We did burn it though.  The talking Dan Marino figure died a most gruesome death, I'm afraid.
     
    Orenga's posse was definitely the biggest disappointment of the trip. I think I may have stolen a breakfast buffet plate at 3am on Friday night at the Radisson. I assumed Louis had slept in our hotel room the whole night. I never did climb the tree I set out to climb.
     
    I think the @Child_of_Destiny lasted for the fireworks, and @Leonardite, @averagetsbplayer, @davefmurray and @DrFrolf were the only other other witnesses of the burning. Maybe @red98sethuthut ? Can't remember. What a WILD ride.

    I had totally forgotten where those ended up.  Enjoy!
     
    Also Dave, you can update your profile so that Tecmo Titles = 1. The most important title of them all.

    The reporter is clearly fighting back laughter when he announces "playing outside in the middle of the woods in Leonard"
     
    Also, stating that Burning Mort is taking Tecmo to the "next level" is like saying Gutenberg took books to the next level when he invented the printing press.

    Louis' first keg stand:

     
    It got weird:

     
    Really weird:

     
    I think the grand burning ceremony didn't commence until after 3 am. But it was worth it.

     
     
    This is (a) how the site looked the morning after, and (b) a great metaphor for how my insides felt today.

    There was a longer form story on the "Sports Sunday" program that aired after.  I'm trying to track down a copy or link.

    The conjurer was the MVP of the day for me. I'm having issues with my other pics, but will upload when I can.
     
    Not a tremendous Tecmo tournament. A tremendous Tecmo Experience.
