Matty, you gotta help me out. As the undisputed Voice of Paintball you have a responsibility. It's a lexical responsibility. I didn't realize it until this morning so please don't take this as criticism. More like begging. When I heard some French guy going on and on doing commentary on the Paris Open and the only English involved was "feast" and "feasting" I knew there was a problem. A feast here, a feast there. It's all good. And I can appreciate the difficulty in trying to keep the commentary fresh but every expression you use is gonna get repeated a thousand fold. Kinda like the agg epidemic. Harmless enough at first until it hits some unexpected critical mass and --boom--we're screwed and there's little agglets overrunning fields around the country like rabbits. All I'm asking, Matty, is that you expand the paintball lingo lexicon. Make it up on the fly. Try different stuff out. Just go for it. Thanks.
