When we incorporated the new website, we wanted something that could be pointed to to help identify all RPG pages- even those that aren't pure paintball. Well, I like blue paint (truthfully I like all paintballs) but there was a story behind it.
So by customer demand:
The Story of the Big Blue Paintball
In college I commanded Grey Storm, The Citadel Paintball team. We were participating in a recball event and I was leading two squads against an enemy position. I pulled both squad leaders together to discuss a flanking maneuver I wanted to do.
We were in range, but barely. I squatted behind a huge fallen pine tree. I noticed there was 6-7 inches of open space below the tree where it had not fallen all the way, but I thought nothing of it.
Well, as I was talking to my squadleaders the "Big Blue" golden BB fired by the opposition zoomed beneath the tree and struck me in a sensitive area. (My wife would have been pleased)
As luck would have it, the paintball was blue.
So it has become an inside joke.
Welcome to the inside.
