  • You mean for not knowing about the tournament? Of course he should have known it’s coming! Get your pogs ready DC!

  • Accountering

    I used to play Pokemon WAYYY back in the day. I didn’t know these were still around. Now that I am an adult, my reaction is: another group of people coming to the city, staying in hotels, and spending money in the city. Great stuff, enjoy the tournament!

  • On a related note- the Magic: the Gathering Pro Tour is coming to DC in February. I guess Forbes was right when they ranked us the coolest city in the US!
