    I'm sorry

    Thanks man! I'm glad everything is alright with your boys. I love watching her grow every day but the amount of worry isn't describable until you actually have a kid. I've heard people say that.. but man have I felt that now haha.

    I'm sorry

    Thanks man! We’re planning on coming to ELU 2019 because I’ve competed twice, couldn’t come this past year because of the baby and I want to be a Tori’s Angel and expose my daughter to the awesome of Extra Life asap.
  3. Note -- I didn't see a 'forum suggestions' or anything like that anywhere or any other specific place to post this. So I noticed this while looking through the forums, I think it's a bit redundant to have this "Location" in front of someone's location and kind of makes the profile looks messy. If it's meant to be like that I apologize.

    Anyone seen anything about this game? It looks pretty awesome so far.

    I'm sorry

    I'm sorry for being very inactive lately when it comes to meetings or raising money, my mind has been elsewhere. My baby girl Olivia Ray was born on June 12th 2018 at 3:40am and it was possibly the scariest 24hrs of my entire life. When she was born she had the umbilical chord wrapped around her neck and wasn't breathing when she came out. They instantly bagged her forcing air into her lungs to get her to start breathing and rushed her up to the NICu, I went with her and watching them stick things everywhere and hook all these wires up to her, I felt so helpless. He was moving her limbs and she was pretty much limp with the occasional movements. For anyone familiar with APGAR scores, hers were all 0 at birth. They placed her on the CPAP machine to help her breath. She spent quite a bit of time on that and we could only see her occasionally because they were very closely monitoring her. They found that she had a pneumothorax in her right lung and needed to stick a needle in her chest to relieve the pressure and make sure her lung didn't collapse. Once they did that she recovered rather well and didn't need the CPAP machine anymore and they put her on high flow oxygen. She is quite the little fighter though because she spent some time on that to get her breathing regular and she resolved the air on her left side all by herself and we got to take her home on June 14th! So all in all it has been one of the scariest/most satisfying times of my entire life. My wife got induced on 6/10 and we didn't get to leave until the 14th but she just had her first doctors appointment today and she is recovering and doing so well since the time she was born. She weighed 7lbs 9oz and was 20 inches long. It is now July 9th and in a few days she'll be a month old and she is a happy, healthy baby.
  6. I'm definitely planning on getting one, just have to decide where it's going to be.
  7. I only signed up for the video games as well but haven't played any except Rocket League. So it's gonna be interesting lol
  8. Yeah I got it fixed, thanks.
  9. I can't open any of the links in the email for some reason.
  10. This was the same for me. It was my first year last year and I kind of stayed to myself and wish I didn't. But @Xeserox you'll know me down there so it's a start!
  11. Like Sean said, there is absolutely nothing that can prepare you for the experience you'll have down there. It was my first time last year and I'm gonna make it a point to try and be there every single year it's held from now on. Playing in the tournament with a chance to win money for your local hospital is nice but the life changing experience of meeting and talking with those kids is the thing you'll remember.
  12. This is the place that there is no room to hook up consoles, right? I can bring multiple consoles and monitors... would just need the power and wifi or if there are ethernet cables available.
  13. Judging from the games this year, I'm gonna have a hard time and gonna need to put some practice in. Got pretty far in Madden last year but I'm not familiar with all of these indie type PC games lol.
  14. If it happens before the event (tuesday or wednesday) then I'm definitely in.
