EVENT HORIZON is a wrap, and all Coaches have returned to their locker rooms. Wounds must be mended.
On January 27, 2019 – an elite gathering of DreadBall Coaches descended upon a planet Earth watering hole titled ‘Franklin Hall.’ Adult beverages were consumed. Adult words were spoken. Below is a Tournament Organizer’s account of the day, followed by some stats. Scroll past images for their hilarious captions.
Prior to the loaded transport’s departure, it was time to announce my team of the day. An Xtreme team was constructed and aptly renamed, the Pojo Pussies.
Coaches arrived as soon as Franklin Hall unlocked their doors. Tabs were opened. Rosters, Home/Visitor cards, and Tournament Score Sheets were distributed. Balls were launched before high noon.
Four rounds of mayhem ensued. Mayhem is stressed, because all games were conducted with the Event Deck. Elmer and Dobbs know how to create crazy! Blinding lights, streaking fans, and countless brawls threw the most seasoned Coach into a tailspin. Random photos from various matches are posted below.
One of the most startling events witnessed was through a Matsudan Team Captain card.
And at the end of the day, there was one Hero. North American DreadBall Circuit tournaments are equitable with sharing superlatives. Because Event Horizon was non-sanctioned, the lion’s share went to Kevin Cornell’s Marauder team – THE NUT PUNCHERS!
And… There was one zero. The BreadDoll‘s very own Miniature Master and Hobby Highlighter got the titular prize for last place.
By the numbers
Coach Name / Team Name (team type) / Tournament Points / Fan Check “Cheers” / Serous Injuries = record
- Kevin / Nut Punchers (Marauders) / 9 / 149 / 3 = 3-1
- Elizabeth / Salad Fingers (Judwan) / 9 / 28 / 0 = 3-1
- Andrew / Pojo Pussies (Xtreme) / 9 / 25 / 2 = 2-1-bye
- Wesley / The Spoons (Ada Lorana) / 7 / 30 / 0 = 2-1-tie
- Brett / Matrices (Neobots) / 6 / 40 / 1 = 2-1-bye
- Dave / MURDER (Matsudan) / 4 / 22 / 0 = 0-1-tie-bye
- Geoff / Thunder (Void Sirens) / 3 / 55 / 0 = 1-2-bye
- Juan just drank beer, and ridiculed Coaches through rounds 3 & 4.
EVENT HORIZON, Franklin Hall, and a BreadDoll. Good times! If planet Earth is still intact, it’ll happen again in 1/2020. Meanwhile, look for some BreadDoll editors at Adepticon.
