    Dear people that like dave mcginnis,
    he is a loser. I hear that he hates those people that call themselves the tet offensive. I dont know them personally, but i hear that they are really cool and that they destroy everyone that comes near there borders.

    If you have any comments or hate mail. Please email Ctheis09@gmail.com

    • Wasn’t me. Also, why put Theis’ email down? Who would do that?

    • JacobN1

      also, no

    • I personally as a member of the TET Offensive do not endorse this comment and its content

    • Although the TET Offensive is pretty good at debate per se

    • I agree with the really cool part and that we destroy people. But I think I can speak for the TET and say we don’t hate McGinnis. Actually, at St. Marks I actually think I gave him a 1.

    • Kid get a life and stop trolling on a random online forum.

  • I did not. The spicy chicken soup was good, though.

  • This was not me. I do not endorse this comment, nor am affiliated with it.

  • Finally you won a tournament Terrence! Congrats!! You deserve this more than anyone! GDS

  • Terrence negated against megan in quarters

    • Mathew Pregasen

      Jason Smith, Hero of Proper Pairings, Records, and Bid Counts!!!
