July Letter from SBJ

Hey Guys! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I just got back for the National Pokémon Tournament last week. While there, I met a ton of Pokémon fans and some who knew about "It's Super Effective". This year I didn't play the video game. With 2 week prior to Nationals, I attempted to perfect my Vanilluxe/Vileplume/Victini deck for the TCG segment. Due to the slow nature of the deck, I lost 2 matches because of time alone.

Nationals Wrap Up and Looking Forward with Dragons

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I've written and article but I really wanted to express my passion I have for the Trading Card Game right now. I had a blast at Nationals with SBJ, Irene, Chris, Travis, Will, Dominick, Kelsey and Kay and I wanted to especially thank them for cheering me on in the top cut at Nationals. I finished 61st in my flight out of 502 players and in the top 128 of 1005 players in the masters division.

Pokémon Nationals Travelogue

Well, dudes, I've been home from Pokémon Nationals for a few days now and felt like it was time to capture my thoughts in an article.  This was my first trip to Nationals and my first time meeting up with the rest of the Pokémon Podcast crew.  My memory may not be the greatest, please forgive any inaccuracies, I will try to capture as many vignettes as possible.  Keep in mind as well that I spent most of my time with Irene and Kidd, they will most likely show up more frequently in my tales.

First off - the drive to Indianapolis from DC is horrible.  Ten hours.  The first four are through the western mountains of Maryland, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.  Then it is completely flat and boring through Ohio and Indiana.  I was about seven and a half hours into the trip when I texted Irene and told her I was going to turn around and go home.  I just couldn't take it anymore!
