I have to admit, the giant bomb forum is my favorite place to post up our event information. You fools are taco FIENDS!  
 
 @lordofultima:  how can I get "TACO MAN" to appear under my avatar the way "Moderator" appears under yours? Whose taco do I have to taco?

I think they use canadian bacon for tortillas, maple syrup for salsa, and kids in the hall quotes for meat.

#16 Posted by sxezskoz (40 posts) -

#17 Posted by Jeffsekai (7028 posts) -
@sxezskoz: Are you guys ever gonna Stream them tournament?

#18 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -

I got no team :( 
 
It is for the best, going to this tourny is asking for a DUI. I already have 12.

#19 Posted by sxezskoz (40 posts) -
@Jeffsekai: sorry, we're kinda anti-streaming since we feel that it diminishes what we're actually about. we do intend to record matches and post them when we have the gear, but streaming is not on the agenda. 
 
@Stang: there's still some guys looking for a 3rd on SRK if you just want to jump on someone's team- you might even get a designated driver out of it :D

I'm no good at SF 4, but I'd totally be down for the Shaq-Fu contest. Also the tacos and the getting drunk. Unfortunately I won't be traveling abroad until a couple weeks from now. SO POOP.
