Friday Night Fights: You don't know Jake

3:30 PM on 07.27.2012 // mrandydixon

It recently came to my attention that a friend of a friend (of a friend) hunts Bigfoot. Like, legitimately. The dude owns a gas station, and every year for a week he heads into the woods to attempt to capture the mythical creature so he can, no joke, "put him in a cage to show to his customers". He just returned from his latest trip this week, and apparently he got so close he "could smell him".

These are the people in my life.

Anyway, this got me thinking about what mythical creature I would hunt if I was mentally deranged. After no thought at all (because I'm mentally deranged), I settled on the surviving relatives of Jake the Alligator Man. (Are people outside the Pacific Northwest aware of Jake? My gut says no, but with the recent invention of the World Wide Internetwork, you can never be too sure.)

What about you? If you had just escaped from Holmes Asylum, what would you do -- and hunt -- with all your free time?

Friday Night Fights

New to FNF? Read this! Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It's a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!

The planning for FNF starts in the forums, where community members volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up in the community blogs followed by a recap post here on the front page.

To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! If you'd rather host something yourself, sound off in the comments section below!
