This one though is unlike any other ever attempted here at VFTD. This time y'all are on the hot seat(s). Thing is I'm bored and there isn't all that much going on. The 'How Big is Paintball?' group page on Facebook has turned into everybody's cheap date--and you know I mean party slut--for their own paintball promotions, which, if you think about it tells you everything you need to know about the non-playing parts of paintball. Then there's the announcement that something called The Paintball University is expanding on last year's rousing 'Woman of the Year' success by adding a 'Man of the Year' award with both to be announced at Living Legends in a few short weeks. (If you're looking for links to any of these, keep looking, 'cus I ain't providing any.) Not only do they get to award some member(s) of their happy little inbred family with meaningless self-congratulatory plaques they also get the benefit of simultaneously promoting the university and its services minus the usual mercenary overtones. Of course if their website is any indication they's still living in the 80s. I know, I shouldn't be so cynical and it's really largely harmless--so that's all I'ma say about that. (VFTD cares. I look forward to your angry comments and semi-literate emails.)
Today's Another Cynical VFTD Game asks you (yes, you) to send VFTD a positive paintball story--preferably a true one. And if there are any good ones or any really bad ones they will receive feature billing and be posted under the 'Positively Paintball' heading as counters to my routine cynicism. If you are wondering why this is another cynical VFTD game here's the beauty of this game. You (yes, you) aren't going to do it. You can't be bothered. Somebody else will send one in. And in choosing not to participate you (yes, you) will be proving my point and confirming my cynicism. Clever, yes? So, get to writing. (haha) I'm really looking forward to all those positive paintball stories y'all will be sending in. Not.
