A Champion among us

Not a HF related thread, but thought you'd all get a kick out of this just the same...

It is with great pride I would like to congratulate my team mate from "The Legion of the Red Fist", Mr. Rob Krueger as the 2003 World RPS Champion. How many of us can ever say we were a World Champion?...

The Legion of the Red Fist is the most vaunted and dominant RPS team in the world, consisting of five grand master Roshombo players.

Roberto took home the title on Saturday night, and made appearances on the the Today Show (NBC) and CBC yesterday morning. A few of the many reports of his victory can be found at the following:

http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/s975703.htm
http://www.rpschamps.com/
http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/americ...petition.reut/

Of note, if you're ever trying to resolve a dispute with one of us, you might want to flip a coin...

Well, that tears it - we DEFINITELY need to go out for drinks again, and Krueger is buying!

Kruegs, congratulations - you'll be glad to know that a coworker of ours was among the 319 other competitors, along with her boyfriend. She got eliminated in the second round, but at least had the satisfaction of gloating over her boyfriend, who got knocked out in round 1. They both had a great time, though, and stuck around through the rest of the event.

I only have one question...was there a bruin like minimum alchohol consumption limit before proceeding onto each round? if so, looks like all those pre-season training sessions have paid off Rob

I can vouch for Rob's alcohol intake. Nothing liking being on the Today Show in front of 25 million people, hung over to the gills. But he's a trooper.

Insanity! Thanks for the congrats!

This is too much - its hilarious. Saw that it made the Telegraph in Calcutta India. Humour. Truely an international affair. For a good laugh, try a google news search - Rob Krueger. Unreal.

It was definitely the type of event that the HFNHL Bruins would participate in...

Rockit,

Kruegs

Damn, we'll have to start charging the RPS society for use of so many Red Fist member pics. Good to see my form on scissors was still solid after 6 hours of drinking...

The Red Fist Nation cometh...

For those anxious to see Rob in action, he's getting flown down to LA for an appearance on the Ellen Degeneris show. No, I'm not joking.

From what I understand, he had offers from Letterman and Leno, but I guess he's a big fan of Ellen. Who knew?

Who's not a fan of lesbiens?

Maybe Rob is just curious about what goes on backstage at her show.

That's all well and good, but until he's on the Tom Green Show, it's not that impressive in my books.

Worlds colliding! Worlds colliding! I'm having a major George Costanza-grade freakout here, folks.

It's bad enough that you two blokes were there. Worse still that the denizen of the next cubicle at work was there with her boyfriend, but now I realize that the Host and MC, Michael Booth (the snappy dresser in the tux with green waistcoat) was one of the principals with whom I launched Tempest Theatre Group (a Shakespeare repertory company) in Toronto some (eek!) 12 years ago... his partner Keri Alletson worked hospitality and media relations on this event (so no surprise you got tons of coverage - she's a crackerjack publicist), and yet a third member of the group, Greg Cooke, did the merchandising.

It's probably a good thing I wasn't there - much like the prospect of the Red Sox and Cubs getting to the World Series together, the world would likely have imploded.

(P.S. - One of the other principles behind Tempest, for those who get cable in Toronto, is now going by the name Jonathan Llyr, and is host of "Hypa Space" on Space TV. He was my MacBeth when I directed the Scottish play at U of T way back in second year... if RPS was anything like our theatre days, there was PLENTY of drinking going on. Oh, wait - that's why Kruegs and Quain went, isn't it? DE)

Holy crap...I just heard Rob on Fox Sports Radio. Talking about Fist Full of Dollars and Toolboxes and Avalanches. We were cracking up driving home. Nice to know you put your skills to use at home too, Rob!

Congrats to the World Champion for once again proving victorious - this time in a live head-to-head showdown with the ESPN anchor.

That was a lot more amusing than most of the stuff they put on there to fill time. The anchor was baffled for like 20 minutes after that on how you beat him.

By the way, you're lucky I wasn't the anchor.. watching at home, I totally called your scissors at the end!
