I only apologize in advance for my dog’s behavior and my Halo skills circa January through the last week of February in 2013. It’s not that I sucked at Halo, I was apologizing for my pure rawesomeness. You can ask OB, I was coming in first place for points scored overall for every single game, consistently. It’s like I wasn’t even trying and I was still sticking fools with plasma grenades across the map for double kills. I was unconscious underneath that Spartan helmet for those seven weeks, and I’ll never play that great again.
I was going to continue the article with a declaration of the generally great gaming skills of the MiddleEasy crew (you can’t outperform us at: any iteration of Halo, CS 1.6, Diablo III, Lego: Ninjago or Magic: The Gathering) but I literally just came to the realization that I’ve peaked at Halo, and I will probably never play as well as I did last month. I feel hollow inside. Gamers need a PED. I’m getting older now, and sometimes it’s tough to keep up with the kids. Man, I started this article full of confidence. I’m just being honest with myself though.
Chris Weidman is feeling like I was a month ago in Halo, untouchable, and he’s even apologizing to Dana White in advance for ruining the series of proposed superfights Anderson Silva has on his plate.
Dana White recalls what Chris Weidman said to him post UFC 158:
“I talked to Chris Weidman myself. Guy looks me right in the eye and says, ‘I’m telling you, I apologize that I’m going to (expletive) up all your superfights, if you take Anderson Silva out of the mix, the superfights are all gone,'”
“He says, ‘I’m gonna (expletive) up all your superfights and I’m gonna be your next champion, but what I will do for you is I’ll give him an immediate rematch in Madison Square Garden as soon as he loses.’”
We have to admit, that’s just about the ballsiest thing anyone’s said about Anderson since Chael. Or do we mean ballerist? Ballersiest… Nah, combining those words just doesn’t work. Bummer.
