Group #$%^@ Everything: Need to win the whole damn thing | (99) Scott Iwafuchi – (1) ZettaC

Yeah… this will be tough. If anyone can pull it off though, it’s Probably JiveTime or Ray Rizzo. They need to go all the way, so time to try your best, guys!

    It’s strange to see Ray Rizzo so low that he has to win everything to get an invite. Of course, if anyone can, he can.
