"That's how you prepare for the ATC" Episode 49

For two weeks now, we managed to keep Ray on the show. It’s a fucking miracle. In this episode we get caught up on some Maximum Effort and our After-Action Reviews.  Ray tests out his ATC list on Andy and we discuss some tactics that were crucial in our games.  Andy and Ray also discuss ways they have been preparing for the big events they are attending this month.  Ray is headed off to the American Team Championship (ATC) and Andy is headed off to the Bay Area Open (BAO). You can see Ray's ATC list posted at the bottom of the show notes.

What are we drinking? Andy made a safe selection this week and went with the Stone Brewing Tangerine Express IPA.

“This ain’t no just-add-juice approach. This one is for adults. We use bountiful whole tangerine purée, which brings pithy, crisp bitterness to the citrus flavor. In addition to the complexities of the tangerine — the likes of which you can only get by using the whole fruit — we judiciously employ just a hint of whole pineapple for a backnote (you’d likely not even pick it out of the mix if we didn’t tell you it was there). We’re not looking for a sweet concoction to appease the “I want my beer to taste like fruit juice” crowd. This is Stone. We like our IPAs to taste like IPAs. Big, bold and not for kids.”

We are having another patron and now Itunes Review contest.  At the end of July we will hold a raffle.  For every dollar that is being pledged per month you will get an entry.  I am also opening this up to Itunes reviews.  Anyone who has given us an Itunes review will also get an additional entry.  Up for grabs is one of our VGRpodcast Tshirts.  You can check them out at

If you think we are wrong or full of shit, tell us about.  You can tell us how full of shit we are by leaving us a review or a comment on itunes, Podbean or our facebook page.  Don’t forget to become a patron of the show at You can now also leave us a voice mail and we will play it on the air the next time we record. The phone number for the talk shit line is 442-444-0791.  Remember, if you are going to call let us know who you are and where you are calling from.  You don’t have the balls to leave us a shitty message.
