Re: A nine-year-old boy saved Pokémon TCG: Lucas Ayala's persuasive letter to his tea

I tried something like this back in grade school in the late 90s when all of the parents and teachers were suspicious of possible "satanic ties" in the franchise. My school had banned carrying the cards on school property, but since it was the only thing we really had to pass the time indoors when it rained during recess, I had to fight it. I ended up suspended over my "protest". :(

Good to see that there are some people in the world who still have some common sense in them, even if it takes a 9 year old kid to beat it out of them.

Re: A nine-year-old boy saved Pokémon TCG: Lucas Ayala's persuasive letter to his tea

My exact reaction to this, motion for motion, word for word...

"What...in the FUUUCK?" *reading* "So, thanks to the efforts of a nine-year-old boy, the card game has been unbanned in Queens school..........San Fransisco, California?"

*pause*

"The trading card game is SAVED!!!!!" (dramatic)

*pause*

*super serious slam of right palm onto desk*

*while reading article, sees note about math calculations* "Don't you like, learn about that in Grade 3. *raising hands slightly* (dryly) Seriously?"

turned Lucas into a mini-star among students (mumbling) "People still play it?" (thoughts) "Well, his is nine. But he looks like the kind of kid who gets beat up weekly..."

I know, I'm a jackass. :p Just found the "saved TCG" part an amusing choice of words, that's all. Of all the words to chose, "unbanned", "promotes", "condones", "helped", "bedazzled", it just had to be the one that implied the fate of the Pokemon TCG, the balance of the very game worldwide, rested on this one kid getting it unbanned in Queens school.

A very persuasive kid no doubt, maybe even intelligent beyond his years, but still. Again, probably just partially the jackass in me, but also partially the satirist of news articles from my early days of posting. :/ But while we're on the subject how's about this for a TCG quip? I knew a kid who played in my local league the WotC days. He hated losing, possibly more than me. Today, he and his brother are professional hockey players, and are in the farm team of the Chicago Blackhawks.

But yeah, in summary, indifferent to the TCG now, the opposite to funny choices of words, feel good for the kid, etc.

Re: A nine-year-old boy saved Pokémon TCG: Lucas Ayala's persuasive letter to his tea

Haha, this is awesome. Good for him.

On a side note, when I first saw the title, I thought it was "A nine-year-old boy saved by Pokémon TCG". Like, I thought he was dying but the TCG saved him or something. o_o

The title of this article is misleading, but that kid is AMAZING.

Awesome. Why couldn't something like this have happened when I was in grade school?

I guess I'm happy for him, but this doesn't seem as important as the title made it sound. Also, some of my friends did the same thing at our middle school a few years back, but you didn't hear about that on the news :[

Re: A nine-year-old boy saved Pokémon TCG: Lucas Ayala's persuasive letter to his tea

I think that the things which he did are good for him and his school and may make other schools and universities consider the series more. I first read this article by seeing the title on the front page of the forums where it says "A nine-year-old boy saved Pokémon TCG: Lucas..." I thought that title was impossible because it looks like it may be about a change in the TCG part of the franchise but it is a local article and may not be suitable to be read internationally.

Wow, that's cool. Kudos to you, kid!

Where I went to school, trading cards were banned because they were "gambling items" or something. Then I go back in 8th grade and they say that it's OK to have them. How in the hell...?
