Favourite bloodbowl race – Orcs there Big, there Mean and there Green
Favourite bloodbowl moment – The Plague Ridden Cowboys run to the finals in there debut season no claw or kill players we had to rely on tactics and positioning the amount of times we scraped a victory late on was amazing, the last game of the league needing a win it was 1-1 turn 15 no re rolls and my opponent had just scored somehow we managed to punch it in turn 16 and booked ourselves into the play offs just when it looked like the team had blown it. Rollercoaster emotions that game for sure.
Worst bloodbowl moment – Challenge Final. I decided that looking after my team for their debut in the pros was more important then trying to win the Challenge Final. So ended up a poor spectacle because i played it very passive something I regret. Also Shawn Michaels death to the low dirty rats of NTB he deserved a better death then getting stamped on and we have vowed to Steve Michaels the Cowboys will not rest until we get justice for Shawn. Oh and anytime it Rains!!!!
Funniest bloodbowl moment – Has to be when my son Jamie pitch cleared the Skuttle Butts because Lou Liz was announcing and turn 16 he was trying to keep it together but couldn’t stop laughing and i just thought it was hilarious, i was in tears of laughter listening to it, i remember playing that back a few times.
