Yojimbo is supposed to be filling in tonight for njsykora, but he's busy being a dad and doing all those real life things that end up being more important then recapping the Cblogs. How can Yojimbo's real life be more important then Dtoid you might wonder? Well when you get to be as old as Yojimbo is you'll understand. Luckily for him, and all of you guys, I am able to step in and take over his duties. Or am I taking over njsykora's duties? I don't know. Does it matter? I'm here now and that's all that matters!
Before I begin the recap, let me just say that I'm extremely excited about this weekend. Why am I excited you might ask? Well, I'm excited because me and 7 of my friends are getting together all day Saturday to have an 8-person 4v4 LAN party, in which we plan on playing COD4, TF2, and L4D. It's 8 hours filled with lots of smack talking, lots of junk food, lots of beer, and a huge body count. If anyone lives near the Raleigh, NC area and would ever like to participate please let me know. We hold this LAN party about once every 2 months and always on a Saturday. We are looking for more people to kill, I mean to play along with us, so if you are interested please let me know.
