BOB,
Great to see you and tom get to run 2 regionals in the eastren USA. Always a blast to play at team TJ's events wherever they are held.

I am confused because emerald hits streets before the the milford regional so can we use the new set in milford regionals?? :confused:

See ya all next month for regionals where i hope to do better then my 2nd place finishes from MA and RI even though 2nd this time means i go to worlds. :thumb: :biggrin: :pokeball:

Expect a good 35 in the 15+,15 or more in 11-14 and a good 10 or more in 10- this time due to the crowds flodding in for the regionals. Thats an estimate i can see not dont known what the final tally will be yet.

LOLOL thats a great dream to have. Me get anotehr finals rematch againt cap. I know it probabily wont happen but hey if i get a finals rematch against him i hope all my buddies would be there to see it :biggrin: I know ill be rolling back the tears from knowing ill be finally playing in worlds but ill also be sitting there with the biggest smile i can give knowing ill have cap in another rematch.

5 years i wanted to be in the best in this game. I have Never been arrogant or selfish and always bided my time when i play a deck. For 4 years i either came so close or crashed into the losers column but this year i may just do it, i may just win my way to worlds so all i can do is play hard and see. Ive been to both worlds they had but paid my way there each time. Ive never won my way to worlds before so If i win the trip i think ill be like wwe superstar chris beniot when he won the title at wrestlemaina 20. Ill just cry in joy and be overwelmed in many emotions. This game has been a HUGE part of my life for so long giving me alot of my buddies and memories ill always cherish so its as much a hobby as a 2nd life for me :)

Ill see ya all at regionals :biggrin:

Ohh and gdog if i make the finals id want to face you and get a good hard battle for the title.

Pending the tourney ending and who makes it to the finals if any i think your family and the firefighers crew should all go to the applebees and celebrate a great toruney after it ends. There is one a few miles past TJ's in milford and it would be cool to have a huge dinner with you and the crew from NC. :clap:

Yeah welcome to the Great north East where one day it is Sunny and in the 80's and the next day there is 3 feet of snow. Actually the extended Memorial Day forecast looks to be in the 70's. Dont hold me on that though. Thats why Im no meteorologist.

Bob when it comes to a worlds trip you know half the country will travle through thunderstorms and massive rains to make it.

Great to hear the forcast looks sunny and mild with little chance of rain.

I heard a charter bus of people are coming for this from out in the NYC/NJ area. :eek:

I still hold this notion made my nick cap true: "I dont know how TJ's will hopld all the people coming down" I cant see TJ's being enough space for the regionals even with all the room they pack. I hope this isent so big it really jams the downstairs area. I am wondering if everyone postings hit if its gonna sounds liek and be like the spanish running of the bulls to see who is playing who??

I know in greensboro they needed 2 boards to post the 15+ pairings due to how packed it got. :redface:
