We at Icygeek are not Pokemon players, but there are some constants in any CCG community. People love to trash talk. People also like to one-up each other. However, there is going too far and then there is WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH YOU??? This happened at the World Championships of Pokemon where…,,,two looney-tunes, who make Team Rocket look like swell guys, decided to threaten to go on a shooting massacre at the tournament.
That headline doesn’t mean they stopped someone from taking a card Massacre and bedazzling it into a foil. It means two people got angry at a Facebook community and actually brought guns on the premises after making threats to go absolutely postal. Boston Police, especially after the Boston bombing, don’t have much of a sense of humor about such things. They thankfully took these two schmucks into custody and the championships went unhindered.
If this was Magic, no doubt a lifetime ban would be issued. Who knows what punishment these schmucks will get. Maybe being forced to play Yu-Gi-Oh?
