Crossing the Bridge

My goal is simple: To be the first American competitive Call of Duty player to play on a European team and bridge the connection between the continental rivalry that exists during competition. This event is in Blackpool, England, on August 4th/5th, and I have a team of 3 European players that plan on attending this event with me. Never has this been done before on the competitive scene of the game. In the past we have had American teams win European events on European soil, but never has an American played on a team with the opponent, and that is where I want to change things. I would like to show the world of Call of Duty that rivals can come together and play no matter where they are from, and that no gamer is superior or inferior just because they are from a different place. The event is called EGL7 (European Gaming League event number 7) at Now obviously the costs for this event are huge as there are hotels, plane tickets, and event team passes to be paid for, and the players on my team still relatively young. I am 20, and I am looking for help to send me and my team on a journey that will impress the community of the e-sport and make this boundary less visible. I also would like to show other players that these goals of playing your favorite game with passion is possible. I thank all of you who take the time to read and share this, and I hope to be that first person to bridge the Atlantic and grasp the true meaning of the that specail word, TEAM
