Southern Ontario Open Youngbloods Tournament Podcast: Menoth Represent!

Nick, Adam, Kassem, and I went to the Southern Ontario Open tournament on Saturday, May 24th… great times had by all, and a solid podcast resulting from it!

Nick will be posting his results in his own thread, but the podcast is being attached to mine because… well, no good reason, so just because!

Thankfully, Nick took much better pictures for his report, so check those out for your pretty-picture fix!
