I haven't been to worlds in 3 years, since before my kids were born. But, in my imagination anyway, there's no time like the present.
The reality, of course, is way, way different. But that's 6:00 Dave's problem, not mine. And that guy sucks, and he whines a lot, and he gets dropped before things even get stirred up. So count me in.
When in Pro, do as the pros do.
