  1. I must say, I did not recognize Jay Boosh by his voice. Great cast as usual guys, keep up the good work!

    Also, 5-9 in the tourney were X-1-1, 10-16 were all X-2s. I was X-1 going into the last round, lost to Gideon, even though I kept attacking him, and ended up in 20th place, which kind of sucked.

    The chess match was if Kyt won a single game, Smithers bought him dinner, and if I won all 3, then he bought me dinner. This started because he thought Kyt was good at chess, and wanted some entertainment.

    So again, it was awesome meeting you guys, now that Nats is confirmed in Toronto, hope to see you all (minus Smitty again 🙁 ) there!

  2. 5th-11th place (at least) was X-1-1. I was 11th.

    Congrats to Tygue for winning that sweaty shirt!

  3. Sweet! I won a prize! That full-art BSZ is sweet. I love that card. Though, I love pretty much every black card 🙂

    Thank you!

  4. Hey guys. I’ve started listening to you guys thanks to Alex (DeckConstruct).. I really like your podcast and went back and listened to ALL the episodes. I’ve started following you guys on Twitter and hope to hear some more awesome stuff from you guys.

  5. HELLS YEAH! I win the stinky sweaty Boosh Shirt! See I wanna wash the shirt just so it’s clean, but at the same time it would lose it’s sentimental value and would be de-Booshed…..

    Now to decide if I want to frame that shirt or sport it during FNM’s in Honour of the Boosh…..hmmm long thought on this one. Either way Jay your shirt will have a good home and will be cherished for years to come, or until the moth’s decide to eat it.

    Awesome cast guys!

    OH and like they said, you can check my Youtube channel to watch the Chess matches between KYT and Alex….man those were awesome shit. or Follow me on twitter (which you should also do)

    Peace out,

    Tygue McKay

  9. Great cast as usual.

    Just something not clear in my head, i didnt understand the point that kyt was approching with the facetofacegames/manadeprived t-shirt that were wearing at tcg toronto. Was there some player that were wearing the shirt without being associated to manaD or facetoface in your mind? Didnt understand that fact.

  10. I’ll admit I was one of those peeps that chatted with kyt and I don’t have twitter. So that had to change….I’m now on twitter thefabulous_1

    Btw great cast guys it was nice meeting jay and kyt.

  11. Hey! You guys are always talking about “the chat window” and I was wondering where this mysterious chat window is. I’m a long time lover of the The Eh Team and an American. Please keep this great stuff up!
