So I've been around Destructoid for a few years and have seen the Avatar Adoption Program and figured I would give it a go.  Be prepared for a sob story that is sure to get me adopted.  May I present my avatar:





My avatar, drawn by the one and only Mikey Turvey, has cancer...  No, not that.  My avatar's dog was run over three times....No.  That won't work either.  Ok, I may as well be honest.  I live in Florida, which some of you may know as the wang of the United States, where other states and countries send their criminals to start over.  We don't have video game conventions and most people have the douche-y "Salt Life" or "I Kill Fish" stickers on their cars, in an attempt to be a redneck.  Come on, it's Florida.  I'm an original Texan and it's pathetic here.  So based on that, as you can see Florida may not be the prime demographic for convention planners to bring one to Florida for me to attend.

So since we don't have video game conventions I will, more than likely, never get a chance to go to a PAX Prime, PAX East, Magfest, GDC, Mexican Luchador Juegos Conference or anything closely related where I would finally get to meet fellow Dtoiders and get involved in all the fun shenanigans I keep hearing about.  Besides the fact I would have to disguise a trip to a convention as a family trip that my wife would have no interest in going on, it would cost about $2000 or more for plane tickets, a hotel, rental car, food and entertainment to treat my wife and son on a trip.  That's just not going to happen anytime soon.  I've been playing the lottery but so far, no luck.

So, PAX Goers, I ask of you, let me live vicariously through you this year at PAX.  Photos with my pseudoself with y'all would be awesome.  I could never repay you!  



So would you,  puh-weeeze???
