Un-Badass Picture of the Week: The 2009 Pokemon Card Championship Winner


We appear to be all out of badass this week, so instead I bring you this guy, who won the 2009 Pokemon Card Championship. Things to note:

– The stance, oh the stance

– The two age-appropriate Asian kids who took second and third

– The hat which I pray doesn’t say “Daddy”

– The shirt which really needs to stick another “X” on to the “XL”

– The German flag. Is it…? Is it the Numa Numa kid?

*ed note: I went to a massive Pokemon event at a mall a while ago and it was one of the most fun things I’ve ever done. I beat up a bunch of kids with Charizard, Venusaur and Blastoise in the Gameboy game and got all the way to the finals where I played the “pro” from Nintendo who looked a lot like this guy.

But I was twelve, so it was OK.
