Geneva's Underground Gaming Ring

Geneva's Underground Gaming Ring

I was walking on the boardwalk one fateful day when I heard quite a commotion coming from Mr. Steven Tye’s room. When I opened the door, I discovered about fifty people huddled around a projector screen. What could they possibly be watching? When I asked, many people responded enthusiastically, “This is the Super Smash Bros tournament,” they said in unison. . Tye describes not as a club, but an “impromptu-and-spontaneous-community-gathering-sharing-a-friendly-competition group.” The competition has swept the campus and study halls can be heard with quiet whispers of who they predict the grand winner will be. When this discussion was brought up in my Wednesday afternoon study hall, many were eager to let their thoughts be heard. “ I think Nathan Masso has a good shot”, said freshman Presley Pruitt whereas freshman Nathan “McCola” McCullough is on the side of Phil Ackermann. Freshman Garrett Fritcher is rooting for his brother Cole and hopes Trey Stepanow goes far in the competition. When I asked Mr. Paul Johnson what he thought of all this Super Smash Bros talk, he eloquently responded with “bruh,” and proposed that this new fad should be called the “Super Smash Bruhs” club. Earlier that fateful Wednesday, I watched the competition, a day full of heartbreaking losses and thrilling wins. It was an emotional day. Some scored big while others lost it all. I interviewed Nathan Masso who beat Tanner Bruss in a thrilling match. His spirits were soaring. When asked how he felt about his win, he compares the thrill of “making a hole in one in cornhole” to the rush of winning a Super Smash Bros game. On the other side of things, a fan favorite teacher Tye suffered a tough loss. He could be seen rolling on the floor in agony after barely losing a tight match. Tye says this on his loss, “I felt like I had it all and then I saw it slip through my fingers.” Mackenzie FitzGerald, a fellow spectator, says this about the tournament, “I love going in there. I don’t understand what’s happening, I just cheer when everyone screams.”
