Thanks for coming, everyone. Things went pretty well this time around.

Darkrain, thanks for helping out so much, and congrats on your win. Good job to the other high finishers also, especially our own homeboy Matt R. aka Doormatt aka Matt-a-door.

In response to Tom Turbine: Well, look, I moved my mouse over the clock on the taskbar and it said February 8, 2009, so that's what I put in the title! You expect me to keep track of the date? Anyway, fixed.

I think that one was recorded. We got all the big ones near the end.

I consider this tournament a rousing success, because I didn't have to play a single Peach or Jigglypuff. Although everybody I played was like "I hate Ice Climbers" and it made me feel bad.

Shoutouts:

Zjinn - IC ditto in pools >_<. I thought Souroush was you at first since he played IC's. Your Samus would definitely have beat me easy.

BlackPanther - No hard feelings man. IC's just take some practice.

Climhazard/Zeus - So much camping that I thought I was in a national park. Good stuff nonetheless.

Big R - Your Falco is so good that my moves don't even come out.

Dr. Dude - I gotta tell you, I was so scared to play you because I'm bad against Ganon.

Souroush - WTF at freeze-glitching people. What is this, 2005?

Matt R and Tom R - Thanks for the housing and putting up with me calling so much on Friday. You guys
are too good at Smash and at life. Awesome showing at the tournament.

Dmac - Should have beat me in pools, must have been tough playing so many matches in a row.

Darkrain - If I could, I'd make a combo video with "Raindrops keep falling on my head" as the music.

Sliq - Your cosplay is best.

Ameer - Get well, get well soon.

A lot of people who I played but didn't get your names (I have a bad habit of this): You are all better than me.

People from St. Louis: I'll leave your shoutouts in the St. Louis thread.

Streets of Champaign - My driving skills got pwned hard by this city. Disappearing streets, one-way streets, roadblocks, signs that you CAN'T SEE at night, all manner of jaywalkers, roads that lead to the highway that can't get on the highway. Mindgames are overwhelming.

What an awesome first tournament it was for me ^_^.

Definitely going to thank Tink, Zjiin, and Darkrain(although we didn't talk, I really enjoyed the match on YS) for our Falcon dittos. Definitely need to work on my tech chase and pick up the speed EVEN MORE.

Thank you everyone in my pools, for 0-2'ing me xD. Oranos, Soroush, Dew Rag, Daniel, funny name I can't remember, and Nekomancer(I think that's what it was), you guys make me want to play Melee even more now.

My biggest thanks goes out to Tomacawk and Ripple for coming and picking up the Peoria peepz who weren't going to be able to go because of ride issues, but you drove a nice distance to come pick us up! Can't thank you enough and it was awesome meeting you guys!

My last thanks goes out to the city of Champaign and how bizarre it was. In the morning it's a calm day with people running everywhere(Which I wish I could've done, but my gear was at home and I didn't want to be sweaty xP), but at night it's this amazing rave party with large lines and crap talking girls lol.

Darn good tournament, looking forward to another one!!!

It just occurred to me that Eddie and I were the only two attendees this weekend who had been to Snexus 1 (March 2003, my first tournament experience), and I think that goes for Snexus 2 and FoB 1 as well. Almost no one from those days/tournaments still plays Melee (a few of them play Brawl), but look at us two old guys still showing up. Eddie deserves props for still being good in addition to that.

I had a lot of fun at this tournament. And I don't know who said it above me, but I was also extremely glad to not have to fight any Jiggs or Peaches.

Dope - I didn't even know who you were at first, but great stuff in pools. Your Falco is very weird.

Eddie - VERY close matches and very fun.

darkatma - You're the Sheik player I played in Loser's right? Sorry for being so gay on Corneria, LOL but I had to do it. Those were probably the most intense matches I had the whole tournament.

dekuscrub - Stupid Marth! Agh, I just can't fight Marth very well some times. You're really good, though.

Kels - Very patient Fox. Good stuff. I should have played some more with you.

Legan - Your Link is impressive. Really had me worried first match.

Dunno if I'm forgetting anything/anyone, but good stuff everybody.
