On behalf of “GRAPSF” let it be known that Kyle Rodriguez has now been inducted into the club of “Old Salty Bastards”. Though he has not been around for an absurdly long time like some of us he has shown his dedication to our community and disgust for all things “not real”.
He joins the ranks of other salty bastard such as myself, Matt Meade and a host of others from the “GRAPSF” days who I wish to not call out unless necessary but, they know who they are. (Exposed: Danimal Jay Joshua Smedley). We remember when he started as a lowly scrub proclaiming “i just need to…” and “i keep messing up…” while losing round after round, salt ever building. Over time he came to realize how little he really knew, as is the natural progression. Now as he has matured as a player and become a force to be reckoned with in multi-games as many of us have he has now crossed the threshold of old and salty. The slightest mention of things things “not real” fill him simultaneously with endless rage and bountiful apathy.
While he joined us while we were still “GRAPSF” and we will consider him always as such I feel that as we enter a new era in the FGC on the dawn of the release of our next major tournament game he shall ceremoniously be dubbed the first Old Salty Bastard of the GRFGC to give our newer members someone to look up to.
Kyle Rodriguez is here by awarded “OG” Status in the GRFGC and I know he will continue to be one of the pillars of our community as we move forward and will continue to help both newcomers and seasoned players learn, adapt and overcome.
Pictures and Award ceremony to be held tomorrow Feb. 6th at GRFGC’s Filthy Casuals about 3pm or whenever the fuck we feel like it.
Real Talk: thanks for sticking with us, Kyle Rodriguez, when a lot of other people dropped off the face of the earth. There is no such thing as a local community if people don’t come out to play and help each other out. You’ve shown your dedication with more than just your presence. Can’t wait body you in SF5. Get fucked.
