It's come to my attention my pax 08 wrap-up is late, so late that CTZ posted a wrap-up wrap-up without me. My entire pax trip could have ended after I got an amazing cheer at the Destructoid panel. Seriously I was just trying to get the panel's attention really... then everybody started screaming "HUSKY!!!" and my ego immediately became bigger than the entire show floor. Honestly meeting all of you in that short fifteen minutes was too much for this hog to bear, I was ready to pack it up and leave after that...
...I was just too drunk :D
Which brings me to a second point - my original fear of going to PAX was that of actually "swinging the bat" if you will. I was afraid I'd end up getting super drunk and becoming "that guy" - so if I ever did become "that guy" - I'm sorry, I'm really not that mean I'm just incredibly sarcastic.
Regardless I wanted to send a shoutout to all of you, because you're just so fucking epic. If I forgot anybody I'm really sorry! It's not that I don't love you! It's just that I met so many amazing people it's insane.
