    Quoted from nwpinball:

    Hey, can someone that picked up a program at TPF do me a favor and spin through it and see if there is an ad for the NW Pinball & Arcade Show? I sent one in, but never got any confirmation or anything, so I wanna make sure it ran. Thanks!

    i can check when I get home for ya this afternoon

    Yep, NW Pinball & Arcade Show ad is in there.

    Quoted from Frax:

    I got blown out by myself. Not even scoring 10 million on GOT was just horrible, and even then I lost by ONE shot because I picked the orbit instead of the ramp and didn't get control back. Just stupid, stupid decisions, both in games to pick and what I did with them. Joe Kosack is the one that whacked me, and clearly I don't need to feel bad about losing to him since he ended up in the final four. I'm just embarassed with my own performance, is all.
    I went because it was something I consider once-in-a-lifetime, but the less times I can remember doing that poorly at something...maybe the better. It's a really bitter pill to go out first round, it's going to take a while to get that taste out. I've already signed up for one tournament next month...I guess I'm not down and out yet.

    I went 0-4 on my trip to nationals a couple years ago. At least you got one win!

    Joe made it to the round of 8 and finished tied for 6th along with Eric Fisher, Joe Lemire and Salem Ayoob.

    Well, I guess throw another +1 of Suckitude on my character sheet then.

    Not sure why you would take it that way.

    If you made it to the Nationals, you should be beaming with joy. There are hundreds of other players that would have been glad to have had the opportunity to even play one game there.

    Maybe I'm too hard on myself, but maybe they're not hard enough on themselves, and that's why they're not there? I'm hard on myself because I *know* I can do better. I *did* better at our SCS. My issue is consistency and adaptability to new situations. If I ever find the secret to that one? Pfft. It's going to be a very very bad day for a lot of tournament players.

    Hey man. Watch the TPF boadcast. Start it at about 1.5 hours in and watch my NGS game. It will make you feel MUCH better as you will see it's not only you as I think you know I'm a much better player than my brackets went....

    Best part of that game was I made it on the "worlds worst pinball scores" list. Pretty sure the absolute min you can score on that game is 6000 points and I came in at 9000 points. Now that is an accomplishment.....

    #212 3 years ago

    Yeah, I might watch the whole TPF broadcast tomorrow. I need like a full day off for it, and haven't gotten around to it yet. I'm REALLY REALLY glad that it got broadcast this year, I really hope that's a tradition that TPF keeps alive!

    I saw it on the broadcast...you are a man in a league of your own! At least you got a shout out to the family.
