And who doesn’t love a good mystery? Not that this is a good mystery, mind you. In fact, I’m not sure it even counts as an actual mystery. Really, the only mystery to waffles is “how can I get some more after I’ve eaten the ones I have?”

You’ll have to forgive me for not having something a bit more clever here, today marks the first day of Evo. “What’s Evo?” Why, it’s only the Evolution Championship Series, the world’s largest (and arguably most important and recognized) fighting game tournament in the whole dang world. Every year, about 3 quadrillion fans, hopefuls, professional gamers, and complete lunatics gather in Las Vegas to determine who among them is the best darn player of just about every darn fighting game worth playing right now. And for the convenience of those of us with the sense to stay the hell away from Vegas, it’s all streamed live on the Internet.

So yeah. I’m a bit distracted. This year’s event looks to be particularly crazy, so if you’ll excuse me I’m going to wrap this up, turn my TV to a live stream, and watch people in another state play Street Fighter for the next 8 hours or so. God, I love the future.
