    Our local paper published an article about me and my brothers playing pokemon. There is one mistake in it. It says that I finished 4th at MD states. I was first :biggrin:.

    Hmmm, the article states that you've learned to win and lose graciously....Yelling, "I lost to YOU" at the top of your voice at MD states must have been an exception. LOL!

    I think it was DarthPika that blurted that, not drmario. Still, a big laugh out loud for this post. =p

    Nice article, Peter.

    With this new recognition, you four should start a league :thumb:

    One of my opponents did that to me. It was hilarious :lol:

    I thought of that, but what do we do with all the league stuff if no one shows up?

    That doesn't count.

    I don't have to be good loser if it happens to be to you. :tongue:

    Keep it for next season. People will show up eventually if they know where your league is. This is especially if you appear in a local paper and the paper mentions the place where your league is. The paper is about events around annapolis. I doubt you're the only 4 people in annapolis with any interest in pokemon.

    My story: Closest places for Pokemon near me were Rockville MD and Woodbridge VA, both outside of what I'd consider good travel time for league play. I started a league in an area where TCGs were dead. End of 1st season had 8 people. Now I average 45 people a week.

    Which reminds me, I need to turn in the league report *heh heh*.

    For the regional match tomorrow, he said his strategy is simple: "Win - don't misplay at all." <--Genius, Patrick, Genius...

    Nobdy named Patrick said that, that was MY strategy. But it didn't work. Stupid togekiss...

    Yeah I just read the article. I'm guessing the strategy didn't work. It should have been, "beg opponent to let me win", considering thats what you did. by the way, I never knew you guys were honeschooled. Greetings, mah brethren!!!

    It must have been QUITE a shock to them.....:biggrin:

    Homeschoolers are known for their excellent spelling.

    Annnnnd....what did that have to do with anything? However, it does seem a good number of Homeschoolers actually do the TCG.
