I have been attending the Tech Ready 7 conference in Seattle this week. I have learned some incredible stuff that we will talk about later. One of the best activities here is a party where you compete in various video game competitions. I am a huge fan of the 80’s classic games. Frogger in particular was a personal favorite. I was the last competitor in the competition and I had the high score beaten. The crown of Frogger king was mine! Matt Hester walks up behind me and taps me on the shoulder and whispers “I can beat you.”
I laughed and asked the contest organizer to add Matt to the list. He beat me with his first frog. You can see his gloating here. I had to be content with second place.
On related notes Harold Wong is the champion of the Galaxian world.
Chris Avis is the Guitar hero champion.
Shawn Travers is the Halo3 Tournament champion. He’ll be wearing his new HALO helmet on the flight home.
Now that I look at it I am guessing our managers are probably wondering how we can all be so good at video games. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm…………..
Gotta Run; Kevin Remde is competing in the Twinkie eating contest. Another potential champion in the making.
