Welcome back to the Daily Shot, where I make a lot of mistakes. A quick grocery list of goofy things I said that I must now recant, before we get started:
- is fairly good in limited, not mediocre
- There is nothing at all wrong with playing a maindeck in limited, as it has cycling for 2.
Now that those things are out of the way, let’s get to the column today.
One of the most overlooked aspects of the Sideboard coverage for any given event is the”Photo Coverage”. In an effort to draw greater attention to the fine work of the Sideboard team, I present to you:
Captionville, USA. PT Boston edition.
“Judge, he’s scaring me.”
“See, those sideburns are just out of control. Why can’t you be more like Kyle, here?”
Chris Page takes his Level 4 Judge Exam.
“Let me give you the number of my dealer. He never cuts it with anything.”
“Whoa! Ha ha ha, that Lexington Steele sure brings a lot of energy to a scene!”
As Ho and Kibler laugh, Ben Rubin utters a surprised grunt as he topdecks a picture of Peter Szigeti’s ass.
Prior to deck construction, Prerelease players listen intently as Colin Jackson explains the exciting new Morph mechanic.
Justin Gary is actually holding 100-proof moonshine.
“Want to come watch? We’re shaving his unibrow for luck!”
Thawed by the unseasonable weather, a Cro-Magnon man stumbles into the play area.
“K, I’ll give you two , an , and…what? Just cause they’re rotating out doesn’t mean they’re worthless!”
“Did you just disagree with one of my picks? Don’t forget who is running this sh*t!”*
“Now, let’s check the Sniper Scope Cam….”
Carrot Top gets $30,000 to appear at PT Boston.
As the draft gets tense, Rood and Wolfman discover that Elijah has been replaced by a wax dummy.
Halfway through the Rochester, Baberowski inexplicably asks Kai if he believes in the concept of karmic realignment.
Maher:”Don’t write checks your ass can’t cash, Elijah. I might look like a clean-cut youth, but I’m FROM THE PROJECTS.”
Mark Rosewater wonders who just grabbed his jimmies. Both possibilities are scary.
“I’m going to go over to StarCity and see if the latest installment of ‘The Daily Shot’ is up. I can’t get enough of that Geordie Tait!”
This has been Captionville, USA. See you tomorrow.
