Super Smash Bros. Slamfest '99 Apr. 24, 1999

MGM Grand
Mario & Yoshi -VS- Donkey Kong & Pikachu

This would be the event that answered the age-old question... or maybe not...

At the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, Mario and Yoshi squared off with Donkey Kong and Pikachu. The "Slamfest" was being broadcasted over the internet live. The excitement was there. The thrill was there. The crowd was there.

Mario and Donkey would start the match. Donkey Kong, being much larger than our favorite plumber, quickly took Mario out. Yoshi came in and got his revenge on the gorilla. Pikachu would come in for the monkey only to be knocked down by Yoshi's lethal tail.

Then, before anyone knew it, Mario went crazy. He wiped out Donkey Kong, Pikachu, and his own teamate, Yoshi. Ultimately, the match would end in a crash which knocked out everyone resulting in a draw. "Everyone is a winner!" the announcer yelled.

Wow, just like a Barney episode gone bad. It sucked...

Even though I wasn't able to go see the match myself(I uhh...lost my plane tickets, yeah, that's right...), I was able to question a member of the audience, 8 yr. old, Maree O'Brothers. When I asked him what he thought of the fight, he said, "It was rigged you idiot. It was just a stupid promotion for a video game. Get a life!". His comment left me thinking how sad the youth of today sad, so young, so innocent...
