I believe this needs an "interview". I'll put on my best Erin Andrews hat (you can wear her shoes) and we can conduct an interview/chat for round 2.


Grue: So, congratulations on your first round victory. Do you feel you benefited form a favorable draw or were you confident you could advance through any of the opening groups?

Who do you see as the bigger challenge in round 2?

Feel free to leave questions for Assassin. Do you have one for another participant? leave it below.

Are there any Cheetoh's left?

Good question,

First I want to thank the Lord, my savior. Second, my teammates and coaches. Coach Fox gave me a great opportunity and I'm trying to take full advantage of it. Lastly, God again. He has been there through the ups and downs. He gave me a great opportunity, even though I can't throw a pass to save my life.

God bless.

Great question, thanks for you're time.

What I didnt want to do was over look our opponents, which we we didn't do. Our opponents were skilled in the three phases of the game, but today was just our day. Our 3 phases out played their phases, plain and simple. The research team preformed well, and the execution was exactly what we planned. Something we haven't gotten the last few weeks. The team is really coming together. I'm proud of my men today.

We have to move on from this week and starting looking ahead to next week. We have two games within a week which is unusual.. We have to prepare our men for two tough battles. We plan on watching a lot of film this week and executing the game plan.

I feel our team can beat anyone in th league. Record means nothing to us. I tell my men every week that throw the records out the window, each team is 0-0 when we play. My men play hard each and every week. They play for me and more importantly for each other.

Record wise, I can see WWJ as a threat. But my players play hard no matter who the opposition. MarlinsFan is a very underrated player. We need to contain his abilities and play to our strengths.

They are who we think they are.

Is there anything you do to prep? Some people read encyclopedias while listening to thrash metal while others search for a zen state on a mountain top. How do you prepare for WWJ's challenge?

24 hours is just so little time.

I have a question for you, Assassin. How much would winning this tournament mean to you, especially if you could combine it with a victory in FFTI II?

It would mean more to me then God means to Tebow. Or syrup to a Canadian.

I feel it would cement my legacy as a Tder and get me one step closer to my dream. That dream is in Canton, Ohio. Ever since I was 7 years old, I wanted to be the best. I promised my dad one day that I would be the best. He taught me everything I know. I want to be remembered as a hard worker, winner and clutch when it counts. I believe post season (tournament) play is where I shine best and winning these two tournaments would only further show my talent and abilities.

Thank you and God Bless.

I cannot divulge all information due to my opponents possibly lurking in the interview room writing down notes. No, they is not fooling anyone by using a crayon. My preparation is an all day event which starts on Monday and lasts all week. It's a long day at the end of the day. My preparation involves some calming music, usually Slipknot, Avenge SevenFold, or Beethoven while I cook a breakfast of red skittles and 6 Aronold Palmers. I've already said to much.

Next.

Have you ever been tempted to dupe, just once to push that vote total over the top?

Well that is the tie break done for me. I do hope some will vote on the TD. Mahewman got real busy, and thought I was going to win(I know eh? Silliness!) :)

So, this is an important TD as it is breaking a tie. Hope, and look forward to your Votes for either, and comments....if anyone has any.

Thanks again Grue! I've been having fun!
