Firebathero proleague ceremony
This is a throwback to the time when Firebathero did the most ridiculous ceremony I’ve ever seen. It was when he won Proleague in Brood War. I thought it was relevant as he played in ASL last night. You don’t need to know the game at all, the victory celebration is ridiculous though. Watch it […]
