Welcome to the Weekly Weasel, which this week is the unofficial Tempest hype thread.
THE AFOREMENTIONED TEMPEST HYPE THREAD
Five brave weasels of good standing and stately demeanor voyage to our nation’s capital this week. Four of the new guard will be roadtripping and making a monumental first appearance at Tempest. The venerable Prime Weasel Brian Shelden, by the power entrusted to him by Weasels and credit card miles, will be flying. The scheming starts Friday-should be an excellent weekend of stabs and songs (spoilers for the team round). We’ll be sure to post recaps of our experiences. Also, if anybody knows of something to do in Cleveland on a Thursday night, seriously hit up the comment section.
I’m serious about the Cleveland thing. Ohio is the WORST. We’re desperate.
THE WISE OLD WEASEL ARRIVES (FASHIONABLY LATE) TOMORROW
(update: it will apparently be more fashionably late. Look out for this next week)
As we mentioned whenever this was last posted, tomorrow we will be discussing the play of Germany within the club. Some statistics will be provided to tee up your strategic insights on the Fatherland. Out of towners/ friends of the Weasels are more than welcome to chime in. In the spirit of both Columbus Day and Octoberfest, your writer will discuss the importance of the Italian-German alliance. Looking forward to hearing all your awesome ideas on Germany.
