The dawning of a new day – Thursday

Posted: September 11th, 2008 by ROM

After the thumps of the last battle drums faded into the dank marshland of SE Portland, and the battle smoke wafted away into the Willamette Valley, and a few battle-hardened birds tentatively chirruped to celebrate the dawning of a new day, I wiped the blood from my Ray Bans and saw standing tall and proud and also a little weary on a pile of rotting corpses the one victor… or five, or however many we had actually playing – plus everyone else showing support – the Crazy Flipper Fingers!

When we arrived, Getaway was shorting out, and so Tilt almost cancelled the pinball portion of the rumble in exchange for an all out West Side Story synchronized fake stab-off in the alley behind the Good Foot. But I crawled underneath the machines and switched around a bunch of plugs and stuff, and that sort of made things better (sorry, Bounceback… even though I can’t be held responsible for the game shutting off right as you started running your modes – I still apologize.  I fixed it even more after that.).

OOO, while they may not wear cool t-shirts like us, or have a sweet battle cry, represented in good form. They wanked big time about Fastbreak though (man, shut up and play, I say!). So we appeased them and nixed it from the line-up. We played five on five, two vs two (and one vs one) on three machines, and played each one twice. 5 points awarded for 1st place, 3 for 2nd, 1 for 3rd, and 0 for 4th. I know, with that scoring system it was technically not “two vs two”- more like every person for themselves. But anyway, after we’d all played each game twice, the calculators emerged and we crunched those numbers like the heroes we are, and, as I mentioned above, CFF emerged victorious.

My personal impressions: totally fun. It went pretty smoothly, we got to play a lot of pinball, and we all had some good games. Indy 500 is rad, and I got over 1 billion on it for a 1st place score. I’m writing this post, so I can talk about myself like that. Um, what else? I don’t know.

The battle may be over, but the war still rages on inside our brains. Nay, I doubt this is the last we’ve seen of OOO.

Additionally, if there are any other tuff clubs in Portland who want to rumble, let’s have it, fuckers.

I don’t think anyone took pictures. Sorry.

    Bull riding is code for club steam.

    added a pic for you in the post above. there are tons of them available, someone’s been following this OOO crew everywhere. just search for “out of order” + “shit” or “toilet” or something else that reminds you of them, and tons of pictures will pop right up. it’s easy.
