    2011 US Nationals

    Oh baby, I don't even no where to begin. I typed in a bunch of hot words in my phone to remind me of stuff. I'll just go from there. Sorry if you get confused.

    UFS was a fvcking blast itself. The game is super strong right now, and ever so more insane that Teams was won by a 5/6/7HS set and Singles wasn't won by a character that isn't a champion. Every day was a different challenge because of the decks all being so different. Sure you may have seen another character a few times, but I don't think I saw the same build in the entire day. UFS is at it's best that it has ever been.

    South Point Casino was good place to hold the venue. It wasn't cray packed ever, and the room we had was solid. Aside from room floods and kicking Phil Birch out of the casino floor, this was a good place. I enjoyed staying here.

    West Coast was in the house! It was great meeting everyone, especially RockStar and finally Tader_Salad. It was good times seeing all the crazy decks that people run, like Rock Howard 2 in Legacy and y'all love your Morathi. You guys being sick on the other hand was not good and I am sad that you guys all just had to leave to recover. Hope you guys feel better now!

    Tides of Vengence is going to be an amazing set. The promos that I was treated to seeing were amazing, definitely can't wait for them to drop. Characters like Kaden are going to be a huge threat because of the sheer forward motion of their abilities. There is going to be a very diverse Worlds this year.

    Prizes were off the chain! US Nationals King of Fighters banners, and tons of product. Much like Las Vegas, Jason gave everyone a chance to win with a raffle. I won two boxes of ShadoWar just for coming to the event, and one guy won seven boxes of boosters. This was a broke UFS player's dream.

    Drinks are awesome Las Vegas. They're free and get you fvcked up real quick like.

    GameWorks was awesome, especially getting to play waffle copter in a game of Pump It Up, which then lasted for a thousand rounds. Pac-Man Battle Royale is a sweet game, glad to see that everyone enjoyed it UNTIL GAMEWORKS' DRAINAGE SYSTEM BACKED UP and ruined the fun. They had sweet Initial D virtual cabinets, and Birch and I wrecked house on Outrun.

    Stripper Business Cards all over the street. Everywhere, even with that one prostitute who looked like she just went twelve rounds with Holyfield mere minutes before getting out on the street. If that lady was any more beaten she would have been my JJ deck in Singles.

    Michigan Team was the best team of the entire weekend. It was so nice seeing everyone, and I think I had some of the best Jeremy Ray torches I have ever thought up this weekend. Good times, especially thanks to Andrew Olexa for helping me shake off the rust during Gambling Master.

    Rochester Team are pretty legit too. They never back down from a challenge and crushed it in Teams. Great job there by those guys, can't wait for Worlds when we get to see each other again and talk about Frozen Custard.

    Tim Keefe/Cetonis is adorable.

    The disaster this year was the great room flood. Neighboring room left their bath running all night and thus flooded our room. Half of my collection was destroyed and some of the boxes that Jasco had already packed were killed thanks to that. Thankfully not all was lost and it seems like a good recovery, thanks to Jasco having extra product on hand and the UFS community for giving me extra commons and uncommons to help my collection back out. I ended up having more cards than I originally came with, mad props everyone.

    How the fvck is Steak n Shake EVERYWHERE?

    Pai Gow is the only other game that involves cards that UFS players should be playing. Forget Yomi, MTG, or anything else. Toysa and I ran the table for a long time.

    King of Fighters foil cards just for coming to US Nationals this year. BE. FVCKING. JEALOUS.

    nOmar Chavez. I was sad.

    I had In and Out for the first time ever. It is basically Five Guys.

    I jumped a fence to get into Jasco's Parent's yard so I could pee.

    Everyone in Las Vegas said it was cold, even though it got down to 55F at the lowest at night. I kinda laughed at these people as my plane had to wait for take off for an extra few minutes because they had to spray my plane in some sort of gel to prevent it from freezing.

    Eating in Las Vegas is odd. Our buffet at South Point is a bathroom killer, but the other places are all amazing. The Food Court on the strip has an awesome security guard who instantly thought we were just a roaming gang of murderers.

    Labour for Jasco Games is nowhere near as bad as any of the jobs I have worked before, but getting all the boxes and orders ready was fun and a pain in the ass at the same time. Promos, boxes, correct shipping labels, and sealed all with enough time to play hackysack in the loading area of FedEx.

    I saw where Tupac got killed.

    Everyone was amazing and I miss it already.

    Sal has a truly epic beard and I somehow forgot that you were a West Coast player. I just assumed you were from somewhere else. It was good meeting you though.

    Big Bear McDannel always gets love, even if I forget to write his name down in my first post. <3

    Call me Kevin lol. Pump it Up is so hard, how you get so gud at spins? I guess being a monster with a heart of gold helps

    If that lady was any more beaten she would have been my JJ deck in Singles.

    That ladies face was HIT
    Oh, you think the 2 checks are your ally. But you merely adopted the 2s; I was born in them, moulded by them. I didn't see 3s until i was already a man, and by then they were nothing to me but BLINDING! The 2s betray you because they belong to me!

    Rochester will never be defeated by a sundae of any size!!! That trip was off the hook. Can't believe those pussies thought it was cold at 55 degrees. That's shorts weather in Rochester. We'll see everyone at the Michigan PTC!
