It will take a lot of guile to get it done. They might have to write a blanka check for him. Ken they do it?

Maybe he'll just make a Cammy-0 in preseason. If he' Sagat the arm I suspect he does, he won't be playing long.

/M. Bison.

I think they're Able. Maybe he's part of their plan to bring in next-Gen technology to go with their scouting. Maybe he can wear number Twelve.

That's the thing the Cubs need. Quick-to-input special moves. No more of this walk-backwards-for-two-seconds stuff that they've been wasting entire rounds trying to pull off. The Sonic Boom isn't worth it.

The trick to those is to charge in mid air during transitions. But I agree; I prefer Hadouken-style players to charge players.

They should pick him up in an E-Honda.

Ryu kidding me? The Guile of the Cubs, I tell ya.
 
2012-11-09 12:48:25 PM
...don't they remember the last Ryu they signed?

The ospreys of Daytona Beach do. And they're terrified.

He'll ride the bench unlike drafting a college stud.

Because Epstein has a great track record of bringing over only the best pitching talent from Asia.

He's known as quite the fireballer. I hear he's down right fierce.

Check my math, it's correct.

Never even heard of him doing that.

No, that one sucks, you can't even tell he is jumping. Boo.

Everyone knows you're supposed to go jab fireball to fierce fireball to set up a corner trap.

No love for my favorite Street Fighter?

I guess the Cubs are telling him to "Get over here!"

Meanwhile, Ryu's temporally-displaced twin brother Fou-lu goes into talks to outright purchase the Chicago White Sox with plans to rename the former US Cellular Field in a sponsorship deal with Empire Carpeting. :D

/Y'all do know there's more Ryus out there than just Mr. SERIOUS HADOUKEN IS SERIOUS, plus the BOF IV ref does fit the specifically Korean bit a little better
//also shows that I watched waaaaaaay too much WGN as a kid
///now I have the original "588-2300! Empiiiiiiire!" song stuck in my head
////that said, the Street Fighter references have been some of the funniest since I last saw Jackie Chan dressed up like Chun-Li

Great Porn Dragon: /Y'all do know there's more Ryus out there than just Mr. SERIOUS HADOUKEN IS SERIOUS,


We do, but the headline specifically referenced the Street Fighter one.

For your baseball team, the day loss #100 graced the schedule was the low point of franchise history. For the Cubs, it was Tuesday.
 
2012-11-09 09:03:09 PM
The only thing I'm concerned about with the cubs right now is who's going to be working in the broadcast booth with Len Kaspar. I'm pulling for Dan Plesac because I'm good friends with his cousin and I'll get free tickets and VIP passes.

Point taken :D...somehow, though, I can't see either Ken or Sagat going for the White Sox. Maybe M. Bison, but not Ken or Sagat.

(Ken I would see more as a Dodgers or A's fan anyways, but that's just my two pence re Ryu's rivals.)

That's beautiful... DeeJay think anybody Ken top this? Adon think so. Sodom even try.

If I could, I would Photoshop raul Julia's face on the Orson Welles clapping animgif. So much win.

No idea about baseball, but:

Ken lives in San Francisco, he's totally a Giants fan.
