Blog Wars II : Attack of the Cockleburr

December 19th, 2006 by Kevin

My first attempt at a MOB-wide paintball game resulted in Blog Wars I : The Phantom Ecker. Since then I have received alot of positive feedback and assurances that they are in again for next year. Probably the only negative feedback I've gotten is Andy's jealousy about my ammo pack and the extreme number of cockleburrs.

So I thought I'd all let you know that planning has already begun for Blog Wars II : Attack of the Cockleburr. This time it'll be in the spring. Definitely before it gets too warm and hopefully before the cockleburrs are in bloom. I figure that fall equals election season and is therefore just too damn busy for most people.

The real reason for this post though is to warn you all. You see after getting the MVP title I've been feeling a little pressure to defend my title next year. Since I've had my current equipment for a few years now I figure it's time to invest in some new technology. I put my staff on it, and this is what they came up with.


That's right….a paintballing tank. A full recall of it's trial runs can be found here. So be warned everyone. The Ecker division of the MN Militia is already working on perfecting their Blitzkrieg tactics. I hope to have my own paintballing Luftwaffe off the ground (pun sorta intended) by Blog Wars III : Revenge of the Chickenhawks.

    Such wonderful memories. If anyone reads this who didn’t participate last time, you don’t want to miss it! Shooting people is fun.

    I’m still pulling burrs out of my MOB shirt that I wore that day. I like the idea of a full armor division, you’d roll right over those pesky burrs.

    Yes!! I can’t wait to play again! Uh, Kevi, I want to be on your team again ok?

    I was just about finished perfecting my RPPB – Rocket-Propelled Paint Ball; now I’ve got to start work on an armor-piercing round?

    A paintball tank?? I like it. Hope nobody comes up with a paintball RPG.

    I echo Ben – That’s the best memory I have from last year and a whole heck of a lot of fun. Nobody made fun of me when I fell on my face and later almost passed out either.
    I encourage new comers because these guys know what they’re doing and they’re very patient.
