Initial Update

My heart's beatin, my heart's beatin, my hands are shakin, my hands are shakin, but im still shootin and im still gettin headshots its like BOOM HEADSHOT!

A good segway I think to the post concerning Initial's first night of competitive action in years. The first match was a 2v2 on Nuke, that is still very difficult for me to think about. Me and Xep started off on T against a team that pretty much specialized on Nuke (they were like 6-0 on the map in various ladders), and got off to a rocky 11-4 1st half deficit. We fought back in the 2nd half where we were leading 8-2 at one point, but just couldn't hold it together and lost 16-14. Needless to say, the shooting is a little rusty. This team will be faced again however, with a much different outcome when it happens.

The next match saw us facing off on a 3v3 on mill. Term was called home from the H-Town bars to join what proved to be an epic match. We lost the first half 7-8 (as T's), and rallied back in the 2nd to win the 2nd half (8-7). This led to a 8 rd overtime, which we were able to win 6-2. I think all 3 of us can agree the game isn't quite near its peak, but the clutch play still proved to be there.

So to add a little humor to my first post on boski's blog, I just had a customer come to our recreation office window (i very rarely have to deal with the front desk, and of course when I do I get nutjobs). Long story short, this guy asks me if we can offer a class in the fall for teaching how to construct wells. I assumed he had to mean something other than a literal WATER WELL but to my astonishment, this is what he meant. I said well sir we dont necessarily have an area to teach this class, to which he gave me some ridiculous explanation. I said well I don't think this class would fill up and besides, our fall schedule has already been submitted (not really but this proposal wasn't worth our time). He took offensive to this apparently and proceeded to tell me all of the benefits that having a well can provide to the community and to the environment. He asked me what programs I was in charge of to which I named him all of my sports programs, and he said....I'm pretty sure this is an exact quote, "Those kids would be much better served in their rise to adulthood if they knew the benefits of wells and saving drain water". He pretty much left after this, and I have spent the rest of my day telling everyone in the office about this guy. This really is just a taste of the various nutjobs up here in Maryland tho, so I probably will have more stories to come

Man doesn't it take like digging equipment to make a well? I mean you gonna throw kids out there with a fucking shovel and say go to town? They'd be digging that hole for years. Maybe you could teach that class and Term could use the kids to dig for oil.

The result of the first match was very disheartening. Regardless, Initial currently holds the #1 spot in one ladder and #2 in another. It's only a matter of time until we hold the top spot in all 5 of our ladders.

should have told the guy to dig a grave for himself because he deserves to be shot
