West Coast Bias: West Regionals Recap

Smythe won the tournament, I got sixth place twice, but the real heroes are Long Beach for taking silver in the community division.

West Coast Bias: Heroes and Villains Invitational

It took us long enough, but we’re back with the second episode of West Coast Bias! Ryan Smythe does all the hard work, I accidentally drop one of my hottest takes, and we’re both obviously biased. (But you knew that already.)
