Just a quick update to the last post.
It seems that only one of you guys thought you’d test fate and see how close to tKOXI you could get your wife pregnant.
If you are like me and can’t tell the difference between children, these are Ian’s kids. And number four (FOUR?!?!?!) is due on May 5th. Two weeks before tKOXI. While Ian’s tKO trophy case leaves a little to be desired, if this isn’t the definition of clutch, than I don’t know what is. He’s already claiming there won’t be any conflicts with next year’s tournament. I’m not exactly sure how he’s going to pull that off, but at this point, Ian has reached Shane status, in that I’ll believe anything he tells me. Anyway, Ian and his wife have a registry set up here. Be a pal and get him something nice.
In a little tKO behind the scenes, we almost lost Nathan for the next two years due to a potential move to Japan. However, that appears to have been put on hold for now at least and our reigning champion says will be back to defend. To be honest, I don’t even know if have the Kendallville Open if Nathan isn’t here. It was hard enough for us to carry on last year without Danny.
I also made my annual plea to the Board to expand. I was shot down as expected, however they opened the door for possible expansion in 2018. At this rate, we’ll get to my dream of 64 plus 4 play in games by 2036. Not sure how I feel about that, but at least you’re saying there’s a chance.
What does all this mean? Unless someone drops out, Dre and Trey are due for an incredible live broadcast of having their dreams of competing in tKOXI crushed, so all is not lost.
