What? My Son On The Cover Of A Magazine?

Ok, so it's fake...........it's still really cool! My son Michael, (the one on the left) competed in Major League Gaming, in New Jersey on April 3rd - 5th and had the time of his life. There are 4 players on each team and Michael's team placed 35 out of 128 teams, which is really pretty good, I think.

He had a blast and said, it was really fun to finally meet his teammates in person, after playing with them online for so long. All four of them flew to New Jersey and met up and got a motel room together. Not only did he get to meet the guys on his team, but he also met several other guys that he has played online with too. Apparently, once a team would lose, they would go around and cheer on the remaining teams, so that's how they were able to meet so many other guys that they've only known by name and voice online.

He came back, with so many awesome stories to tell, along with the memories of quite an experience and funfilled adventure. Oh...how I wish I could share with you some of his funny stories, but I would never be able to get all the details right.

I'm so glad he was able to go and do something fun like this.........we all know how much guys LOVE competition! I know it was a huge thrill for him! I couldn't believe it when he said, "Mom you know how much I loved playing football.....well, I loved this even more!" What? Shut up! (as it was so well put in Princess Diaries) I couldn't believe my ears, I mean, he seriously lives and breathes football. Wow, it really MUST have been a BLAST!!!

  3. Thanks for commenting on my blog. I have photoshop elements too and have no idea how to use it!! I put my logo on my picture using Paint. I right click on the picture and open it with paint and then do the name. I found a link for adding a logo with Photoshop, I can email you the link if you let me know your email. Mine is on my profile.
    Take care
