Anyone who follows my blog knows my team will always be “Tampa Bay Damage”. Well as I’m sitting here posting this blog they’re packing their gear and kissing their loved ones goodbye to board a plane and head to Forney, Texas for the official kick-off of their 2013 PSP season. Back in January all teams started grinding for the 2013 season and I’m hoping it’ll be one hell of a season. While I’ve only been keeping up on professional paintball for the past few years I’ve come to realize it takes a lot for these guys, both physically and mentally to do what they do and continue to do so. I’m sure if you asked any pro player why they do what they do and I‘d bet the answer would be simple “For the love of the game”. Several years ago I would have disagreed with that statement, but the more I play the more I can say it’s true for me. Sure you’ll find those few “Self Promoters” that try to ruin the good times for the others, but they never seem to. I’d like to wish my friends on Tampa Bay Damage the best of luck at the PSP Dallas Open this weekend and safe travels. As you’re taking point after point, closing that gap for 1st place, remember all those who can’t physically be there with you, but are always there cheering for you wherever they may be.
