You know, when I said there was 100 Days left it didn’t sound like a lot of time. 97 for some reason sounds like more time than it is. Today I’m working 1pm-11pm closing, and opening 6am-4pm tomorrow, so today needs to be pretty light physically.

Got home close to midnight last night and got up early to get the blood moving. Forgot to take my magnesium, ate a meal right before bed, and woke up with my mouth tape stuck to the side of my face. I was really trying to sabotage myself!

If you’ve ever worked in the restaurant industry, you know the times where you have to send everyone home and work with a skeleton crew and get crushed to make your numbers. So I didn’t have time to eat last night, but I did have a spoonful of honey to replace my liver glycogen before bed. Call it accidental fasting!
The Real Deal Podcast #01 The Breakdown
Created a few zone maps for the World Cup layout. The Back Center bunker is a pretty good place to live covering the Snake Side, and most of the angles to shoot you out of that bunker coming from the Doritos, all the way back to the Back Left/D1 spot. The Back Right also has a shot that might be kind of a blind shot, but you could control that pretty easily it seems. Keeping someone out of the snake can be tricky with the pins blocking the entrance, but the closest way in is that tiny cake and I think you can keep them under wraps shooting over the pins. If the opposing team has someone in the snake and anybody at all in a Dorito, it’s going to be pretty hard to live.
The Dorito Temple will have a body in it every single point of the World Cup – mark my words! You can police the Dorito side really well, you can probably put a blind shot in on the Back Center Can, at least enough to annoy someone. You can also put paint in on the backfield of the Snake Side, starting with the first Cake all the way over to the rest of the Snake. If you can get somebody else to plug the Dorito Side of the Wall up for you, you can really live for a long time, slowly unwrapping if anyone starts to get into the Snake Side Bunkers.
On that note, someone in the God (snake side mini temple) can plug that up pretty well for you, with a solid lane to keep a guy out of D4.
I am ecstatic that Nick Leival has been added on as a coach for the Combine. Nick is an emotionless monster; always ice cold and laser focused. Not to say that emotions don’t have their place on the battlefield, but they can empower you or derail you at the flip of a switch if you don’t have sound mental tools to keep them in check. That said, a game with smack talk is naturally more exciting to watch and to play in.
