About M.E. myself and I

I have been an M.E. sufferer for a long time now, but sports replay gaming is an easy hobby for me to enjoy. Originally from Canvey Island, Essex, I was introduced to replay gaming a few years ago, leading to my first purchase: Cricket World. Most sports I share will be common, but there are some more obscure replays thrown in. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy your stay. Feel free to say hello! - Chris

Controlled Chaos - Tampa Open, Heat 2

Tampa Open - Tampa, Florida
Heat 2
Jamie Eilers, Tom Gariepy, Bob Alexander, Jason Ingle, Leo May, Ed Smith, Randy Tondreau, Darryl Lozier, Will Murphy, Sam Harbin, Rob Remaley, Kenny Rose

Like the previous heat the second heat also had a large pack fighting long and hard for the best part of ten minutes after Sam Harbin and Bob Alexander were the only drivers eliminated during the opening six minutes. Harbin, runner-up in the Arizona Derby, had Jason Ingle and Darryl Lozier as regular dance partners, and Alexander was too eager in his pursuit of Ingle and Tom Gariepy who he blindsided three times, to last the distance.

Jamie Eilers finished in second place at Frostbite but will miss the final for a second derby running after taking eight hits, three of which came from Ed Smith as they had a good old battle between them before Eilers caught Kenny Rose off guard twice in quick succession.

Ingle was next to fall in ninth as after surviving the early onslaught from Alexander he had a pack of four cars closing in with several hard shots within the space of a minute, and the eighth spot went to Kenny Rose who suffered the wrath of Rob Remaley throughout before he and Tom Gariepy finished the job.

Gariepy would end up in sixth, the early damage done by numerous Bob Alexander blindsides taking their toll, but not before the elimination of Ed Smith in seventh place as his sneak attack on Leo May was ill-timed, resulting in his car giving up the ghost.

The final two consolation heat places went to the Canadians Randy Tondreau and Darryl Lozier, the former working over Eilers before he stalled and became stuck to leave him a sitting duck, and the latter chasing both Murphy and Remaley before he was forced to call it a race.

Both Murphy and Remaley were giving joint second place as a final big hit from Murphy finished them both off. This left Leo May to win his first heat of the season hitting seven of the twelve entrants with Kenny Rose and Jamie Eilers, both of whom caught him with blindsides, the more common victims.
