Coming Attractions

It's World Cup week (of the PSP variety) and preparations are progressing apace--as is the growing level of excitement and energy as soon over 350 teams will gather to compete in the world's largest and most prestigious event. The action begins Thursday with divisional play while the pros (and webcast start on Friday as usual.) For those planning on tuning in over the weekend--or even if you just want to get up to speed--Paintball Access has been running a series of year in review features for each of the Champions level teams competing at Cup. Each review covers a team's results this season and a prognosis for the upcoming event. It's a great way to get some knowledge about a few teams you may not be all that familiar with.
Similarly our friends over at Social have a fresh, if slightly misguided article on Art Chaos speculating that perhaps the team that began the season with such fanfare is finally living up to expectations given recent wins at Riverside and Chantilly. I say misguided only in that it seems the author imagines the team is something new, a collection of star players something like Houston Heat was a few years ago. In fact, with one exception, all the rostered players on Chaos have played together at one time or another on either or both Art Chaos and Russian Legion. Regardless it's an interesting read.
As usual I will do my best to provide a daily report during Cup but I make no promises. It's a busy busy week. If, during the course of the event you have any questions drop me a line and I'll see if I can come up with some answers.
And next week VFTD will be making a special announcement. Curious? I think you're gonna like it.

I commented on the Social post much the same as you have here, my input never got published, I guess some pages are more autocratic than others!

Anyway, hope you have a great time at Cup and I look forward to any updates, sorry I won't be around this year to come and say Hi.

I hope the special announcement is that you are starting a Podcast.

With a bit of luck I may get to your side of the pond more often in future.

Appreciate the kind words but that sounds like work.
