**** new t-shirt for 4th place finish at grands*****

-Custom Printed
-Words read: "i went to this game tournament, finished fourth and all i got was this lousy t-shirt"


you hear that john?


Eli I will be leaving my cross country meet around 11:45 ish at the absolute earliest and it is a half hour plus drive which puts me at 12:15 at the earliest. That is the ideal situation. So if you could assume im coming to single melee. till you make the last pool. That would be very great.

See you guys saturday and remember john Brother of Maplewood


hahahahahahahhahahah

nice 1
i want that now!!!!!!!!!

maby ill trade it for all the cash money ill win i gots 45 already

Im actually just kidding about the t-shirt thing, but that would be pretty cool.


wooooo im rdy to win


I'm guessing that FriedJellyWalnut is kidding, but maybe not?
Hmmmmmmmmm.....

Also, nobody said anything about fourth place being a tshirt, it's actually going to be a real prize this time, just for John Durski's sake :P.

Um, if you guys will look closely, that FRIEDjellyWALNUT (or rather FRIEDjeliyWALNUT, note the lowercase "i" in place of the lowercase l), spelled my name wrong.

Doofs, probably John, and also, I usually type with correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling, him (or her) does not.

I'm not resigning from AADL-GT, and I still am looking for a confirmation on the clan situation.


Hahaha, sorry, didn't even notice the lowercase 'i'. Ingenius!!

And yeah FjW, it probably was John :P

i knew and yeah won 50 at preseason(35 for first in melee and 15 for second in team kart)


I didn't notice the "i", but I did notice that FJW never spells it as form instead of from. All of the posts made by the FJiW used form...

[gtlogo:RED]


hahah didnt notice the i either, thats sick

oh and hope u guys are having fun right now -_-

if eli sees this on here while the tourneys going on make sure u give my shout outs to 5th column!

Hey guys, thanks for coming today, it was a great event after it got rolling. We'll keep improving the system for next month. In the meantime, you can get the best look at the leaderboard by selecting GT 2007 or going directly here, but as you can see, it needs some cleanup that ejk and I will do on monday. Thanks again... the season is off to a great start and it's clear that there is going to be some intense competition between the Bros of Maplewood and Us.... stay tuned!


y would i do that to my friend!!!!!

i bet it was the roysters who have a grudge with mike


I don't think it was the Roysters, but it doesn't matter. I can't really take this season that seriously with all the standardized tests and all, it's gonna be a busy year for me. Darned Junior year.


yup

maby it was a gost wooooooooooooooo


so.....results?

Until Eli writes up the story of the day's events, you can always look at the results from the database online (even LIVE during an event) at http://www.aadl.org/aadlgt/results

Today's Events:
http://www.aadl.org/aadlgt/results/143
http://www.aadl.org/aadlgt/results/144 (a little weird because of the way we entered the scores into the database. Meh.)
http://www.aadl.org/aadlgt/results/145
http://www.aadl.org/aadlgt/results/146

/*== ejk ==*/


i am pretty close to the most games played


i like how my score no longer appears in the "entire career" leaderboard anymore.

also, there's another lain. only, it's Lain. wtf is this?


Yay, I'm at the top of the leaderboards! (for 2007, of course)

It was some good times, I walked away with 55 dollars to target. Good stuff, good stuff.

Congratulations Johninabox, you're a mere 275 points behind me. It's close.

Oh, and our clan is at the top too!


That t-shirt should just say:

"My name is John Durski, and I have two other shirts just like this one."


or simply,

"Lawl I suck"

Jay Kay ; )


srry but i have 8 of the t-shirts not 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The Podcast was very good! Good job to Tom, Eric, Elizabeth, Eli, and anyone else who was involved in the making of it.

It was quite simple in its content though, I would've liked player interviews (although I'm sure that will be coming in later editions of the podcast, always gotta interview the staff first, right Eli?)

Another thing, you should record some of the audio during the tournaments, like the trash talking and stuff, and just randomly add that to the podcasts. I think it's pretty funny to see video game geeks rip on each other in their natural setting, which is in front of a T.V., controller in hand. ;-)


i made my own podcast im just to kool to give it to you right now


Ok, so here's a list so far of people that I want to interview for a podcast:

johninabox
Tub O Lard
TurtlePerson 2
Bad Driver
Monkeyman
D Rex
Lain
Pwnerer
Orochimaru
Omega
FRIEDJellyWALNUT

Obviously we don't have to do everybody at once (though it might be nice to get clans in at the same time), but keep some time on the weekends open once school starts to possibly come in to be interviewed.

Would this interview be in the studio or could it be over skype or xfire or something like that?

"TORTURIS EXUVIAS EUNT"


yea ofcourse im first!!!!!

no applause needed i understand that you are all wanting to give me free stuff, plz dont make your self look even more noobish!!!!

im so kool!!!!!!


johninabox = too good


Can anyone tell me where I can find some French Toast Sticks relatively close to/in the downtown area?


Tom im in of course
Also will the tourtament be on the internet to download?


I would prefer that the interview be in the "studio", since it would probably be taxing on the interwebs if we tried to get multiple people over Skype/xfire at the same time. If it's not possible to get into the studio, i can understand that, but I think it'd be better if we had the clans in all at once.

Thanks, Charles, I saw your video, nice job! I got your email too, and the phone calls too. =) Thanks for the directions too, but you really don't need to tell me how to use a URL. Just because I'm over 30 doesn't make me an adult.
