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 - Valentine's Day Massacre, Heat 2

Valentine's Day Massacre - Chicago, Illinois
Heat 2
John McCrory, Steven Redden, Danny Krol, Ed Smith, Scott Hutchins, Tom Gariepy, Jamie Eilers, Bobby Gallagher, Darrell Andresen, Timmy Barnes, Bill Malbrough, John Ruiz

Tom Gariepy, Jamie Eilers and Bobby Gallagher all stalled at the start but were able to refire quickly and enter the fray. The trend continued with Darrell Andresen, Timmy Barnes, Bill Malbrough and John Ruiz all coming to a dead stop. Andresen and Barnes quickly got moving again but Malbrough would be a large magnet for his opponents and Ruiz would be counted out.

Danny Krol passed through the first two minutes of action hitting Ed Smith and Malbrough before he garnered some attention of his own from numerous drivers, Andresen providing the finishing blow. Runner-up at the season opening Frostbite derby Jamie Eilers was done in ninth place, targeting Malbrough but coming off just as bad himself and Smith missed out on the consolation heat thanks to a trio of hits within seconds of each other.

Timmy Barnes was another victim of Andresen's finishing technique, and John McCrory battered Steve Redden into submission before he too was eliminated. They would all be joined in the consolation heat by third place man at Frostbite Scott Hutchins as he too came out second best against Andresen.

Out of the final three only Darrell Andresen had featured in a final before, finishing eighth at Frostbite and tenth in Arizona before missing out in Tampa. He would finish the heat in second place after Tom Gariepy stalled out, leaving alternate driver Bobby Gallagher, in place of Bill Edgington since his injury in the season opener, standing tall as he was able to beat Andresen after the Brit stalled.
