    Hi guys,

    I agree, Europe in the Fall is pretty much the greatest place on Earth.

    Re: Moche Final- Not sure what David was talking about when he was talking scores. Felipe scored a 10, but you’re saying he was underscored? I think you’re mixed up (you called it a 9 something). I understand the argument against Italo’s score since it was a 1 maneuver wave. I do not agree, but I understand.

    Re: Mav’s, yea. Shit show.
