Hello CHIKARA fans!
It's your Director of Fun, Wink Vavasseur here again, with more news about this complicated round-robin
thing we have going on. I'm sure you all recall that before the "12 Large: Summit" officially began, Amasis,
the dancing guy from the Osirian Portal, had to withdraw due to injury. At the time, I ruled that a replacement
from the Osirian Portal could be elected to his position in the tournament, and in a moment of weakness, or
foolishness, or both, I left that decision to you, CHIKARA ARMY BRIGADEERS.
I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but in your lack of vision, you chose Snakeface over my Hieracon.
Hieracon, you may recall, is the guy I specifically brought to CHIKARA to mentor the Osirian Portal, who at
the time, I thought were just called "the Egyptian dudes." No sooner is my man on the job, but people are
cheering the Osirian Portal again, one of their silly little videos goes viral, and the team is on fire like never before!
So why'd you all vote for the snake guy? Doesn't add up, if you ask ol' Wink. In a poll conducted by the Journal
of Scientific Medicine, you should know that snakes are in the top three of least popular things, right
behind spiders and public speaking. Why'd it have to be snakes, right? Indiana Jones.
Anyway, yet another injury has cropped up - this time, to Brodie Lee. Yesterday, he informed me that he would
be unable to face Eddie Kingston at our upcoming Ohio event. It would be an understatement to say that Brodie's
demeanor was gruff. Suffice to say that if I were polled yesterday, speaking to Brodie Lee would've
made my list of least popular things. Also, he kept mentioning his boot. I don't know what that means.
As I previously stated, in a situation like this, if a wrestler cannot compete in scheduled tournament matches,
he must accept those losses via forfeit, and points will automatically go to his scheduled opponent. However,
Mr. Lee has told me he may get a more promising prognosis in the weeks to come. If he is able to rejoin the "12 Large:
Summit" and resume wrestling before all his scheduled matches will have been forfeit, I feel that should
be permitted in the spirit of good sportsmanship.
One of the least interesting aspects of my job directing the fun here is making up the, uh ... line-ups for each game?
Eh, your terminology is Greek to me. Anyway, I strongly dislike having to re-do them when something like an injury
happens - trust me when I say, it can be a bit of a hassle. Still, this is just cause to revisit these upcoming
events in the middle western United States of America. I feel the need to do some 11th hour tinkering creeping up on me!
Maybe reverse alphabetical order? We'll see!
