Galactical was awesome! For the first time in my con career I made it to the finals. Granted one of the other attendees had two guys in the finals so because I won overall based on points I got in, but I at least did it. It was also great to see Shane again, and meet his friends who are obviously going to be new game fans and to play with them was cool too. I am glad Kevin and Andrew could make it again too, poor Andy was a one armed man but still did great. I enjoyed getting to meet The Hobo and play a match against him, the guy is a real hoot. Grant puts on an awesome con year after year and this time was no different. I will be back next year and sorry Shane but the cup and title are coming home with me and Gordon G. Smack!
Zeke, did I see you smile real big when Shayne and Spec were duking it out? You really looked happy and man that was what this was all about.
probably, it was a great match and despite Perfect Specimen getting his finisher up to the max, I was able to win it thanks largely to a well timed use of Shane's Fury.
I think that was the match (or was it the one against Kevin?) where at one point I remember repeatedly just avoiding getting pinned as I had to roll a 5 or higher to stay alive and I got a 5, and then a 6 or higher to stay alive and I rolled a 6, and then a 7 or higher to stay alive and I rolled a 7, and then an 8 or higher to stay alive and I rolled an 8.
About to leave for Night 3 of BOLA at PWG soon (early start time today,) hopefully next year Labor Day for the 3rd straight year will feature both BOLA and GalactiCal. And thanks again to Grant for picking me up at my hotel and for putting together an awesome GalactiCal yesterday!
