For those who read my last blog post “Little White Lie” I had promised a follow up so here it is. Early Saturday morning I arrived at Generals Cup 2013 at Gator Paintball in Hudson to find a sleeping campground still as it was early in the morning and if I had to guess, everyone was up late Friday night. So I pull into the parking spot that my “partner in crime” saved for me the night before and waited for the Crewe to wake up. The first to wake up was my accomplice and the one who I had intended the prank to be for. As I watched him climb out of his tent and stretch I couldn’t help but wonder what his first reaction would be. Suddenly I see a stare come in my direction and he squints, rubs his eyes and walks closer. Then straight out of left field he flips me the bird, laughs and comes over. He claims he knew something was up but there were less than a handful of people who knew (including the field owner and event promoter). The weekend was full of shenanigans and major bruising, but in the end our side lost and we had a blast doing so. Saturday’s team meal was at Hooters in Spring Hill just as I had wanted. The wife and I generally frequent the Clearwater Hooters and refer to it as “Our Hooters” as it’s our favorite out of them all. The weekend was long, but worth it in the end as the Wrecking Crewe took home two awards, one of which was from our opposing team which I consider to be the highest honor of the weekend. The team also had three individuals highlighted for individual achievements. All in all I’d say the weekend was a total success. The team had its first event, took home a few awards, but we also let the paintball world know we may be the new kids on the block, and we are a force to be reckoned with and now appear on everyone’s radar.
What was your best prank ever? Did it turn out as you planned?
