Throwback Theatre: Election Tribute

So the popular vote was cast, electoral college decided, Obama’s term is extended, and pot is legal in two states.. Did I miss anything? To stay in the spirit of the week, Throwback-Theatre-Thursday jumps in on the madness of political frenzy.

This week we’re offering up three clips that all fall on election years: 2000, 2004, 2008. While there are many candidates in the sea of YouTube footy, these three steal the vote.

2000: Legendary players from Avalanche and Aftershock take to the trenches in this clip from NPPL Pittsburgh. Old school footage is like politics, finding stuff worth paying attention to requires sifting through a mess of unwatchable (or unlistenable) tripe. This clip is no “talking point”; its got substance. High quality video, names on jerseys that should be in a hall-of-fame, and a hell of a bunkering at the 2:06 mark.

2004: Traumahead Sportz was more of a Czar than a President in the paintball media world. They ruled with an uncontested iron fist for many a year. If this clip from PSP Chicago 2004 doesn’t get you stoked on paintball, put down yer gun and play laser-tag. Appearances from Lasoya, Dynasty’d Lang, an OG HK squad and pro teams shooting Karnivores. This is the kind of video that unifies a [Pb]nation.

2008: NPPL Jacksonville live-and-direct from the crumbling pavement of the Jag’s stadium. Taking less than desirable things, wrapping them up in something pretty, and selling them to the people. Some beautiful footage and great editing paint an elegant picture of J-Ville. Clip includes match footy from the likes of M.O.D. and THE “Dream Team”, one-on-one battles from Dynasty and Infamous heads, and a cameo from none other than Marcus “The Carcass” Nielson aka “Dank the Tank.” Enjoy.

Many minutes of good paintball worthy of discussion. So stop the political bickering, and sound off!

Video of the day: Dynasty vs XSV, NPPL Miami 2005

Back in 2005 we witnessed a paintball rivalry unlike any other. Pro paintball teams Sacramento XSV and San Diego Dynasty were at the top of their game and the battles between the two teams always kept us on the edge of our seats. While browsing Vimeo this morning we stumbled on a piece of pro paintball history, XSV matched up against Dynasty at the NPPL Miami event in 2005. Special thanks to Traumahead Sports for putting the footage together and placing it online for our continued enjoyment.
