To celebrate the close of VMworld 2010, there will be a best 5 of 9 match to the death between @Beaker – Chris Hoff, aka hohoff from Cisco and his army of vSquirrels vs @sakacc – Chad Sakac, aka “Mr VMware at EMC” and his squad of vSpecialists.
So – a little more detail?
- The game = dodgeball, 10-person teams, following official dodgeball rules here.
- The location = VMware vGym has been graciously offered (here)
- The date/time = Thursday, Sept 2nd, 8pm PT
Here’s all the FAQ you could possibly need:
Q: Will it be broadcast?
A: DAMN STRAIGHT – I want to televise destroying Beaker :-)
Q: What do I need to bring refreshment wise?
A: Nada, I’m bringing the beer kegs (still working out details on this one)
Q: What do I need to know about dodgeball to follow the exciting matches?
A1: That people wearing gold shorts and knee high socks are acutely aware of just how cool that makes them.
A2: In the immortal words of Patches O'Houlihan: “If you're going to become true dodgeballers, then you've got to learn the five d's of dodgeball: dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge!”
…Oh and Chris – BRING IT.
