I'll be there. Come yell at me during the BBCP bracket or with the poverty anime game side tournaments in the BYOC area (where we can only afford to give away doujins and dakimakuras).

True, but then you'd most likely reach the issue that was stated earlier.

Great OT Kadey!

I'm super excited for my second Evo. Hope I get to meet more GAFfers this year and hope I can make it out of my Marvel pool and go at least 1-2 in USF4!

Good luck to all other GAFfers, and any FGC-GAFfers who want to get in some games, either PM me or tweet me and hit me up and everything should be good!

My schedule for EVO:

Friday: buy shit I don't need early, cheer/sidebet for my SF homies @ pools, spend too much time at the Aksys booth playing GGXrd and P4U2, go help out a buddy record his marriage proposal to his girl, get drunk.

Saturday: watch/sidebet UMVC3 pools, bop everyone in my pool until Scrubeks, don't go 0-3 against scrubeks, try to at least get out on losers side, casuals, MM against Honzo, get STUPID drunk.

Sunday: get chairs with the crew, plan the day out, go watch WC finals, try to watch at least the top 4 for Smash, kill my lungs during UMVC3/AE finals, get IDIOT drunk.
