This Friendly Encounter is a hodgepodge of worlds colliding. The Chicago Bliss, Johngy's Beat, Resistance Pro and a photographer friend combined for a fun night.
The Chicago Bliss "invaded" RPro in the summer of 2014. That was one of the most fun nights I ever had at RPro. It was also a bit surreal. I am happy to have had a hand in putting those two great organizations together.
Assistant Coach Ryan Andrews showed his support by arriving in Johngy gear. Long-time convention colleague, photographer Jim Strong also wore the Johngy shirt. That's a lot of orange and a lot of Johngy. I snapped the photo below, which also included Assistant Coach John Witte and Bliss player Dana Dixon.
These are good people and I am proud to call them friends. These are also people who have become friends with each other. Worlds colliding, worlds meshing.
