Yet another main event fail...
Is every robot supposed to fight 4 or 5 times before they rank them up for 16 bot play-offs?

I've been away too long.  Somebody is Jonathan Schultz of HUGE?  Last I remember, he was just borrowing other people's bots to run at events.  You've come a long way in a short time, Somebody.

Now I'm really rooting for HUGE to win.  Or Bombshell, but it's not looking good for Mike at this point.

I stole Alex's (SKBT/Shish-ka-bot) robot in February 2016. Got into Battlebots in Feb 2018. It's been a little surreal. Mike was there, Alex also helped on us and SubZero, Kyle (zipdragon64) was with Bale Spear. Little reunion

Somebody, if possible, you have to get the announcer guy- I forget his name, he’s the guy who introduces the bots- to reference GTM.

Do it for science.
