Tonight is the premiere of the most anticipated first round matchup in the history of SHUFFLINSANITY.
The Golden Tangs and Philly Specials hold a whopping 5 championships between them and feature some of the best shufflers ever to slide a biscuit on a tropicana cabana blue court.
Their styles couldn't be more different.
The Golden Tangs are mild mannered scholars obsessed with strategy and the scriptures of Floyd Swem, Charles Haslem and Karl Von Shuller They play a thoughtful and conservative style that centers around choosing the right shot and playing towards the percentages.
The Philly Specials are brash shot-making bad-boys who indulge in some trash talking and seem to channel their hometown hero Allen Iverson on the court (and also when asked about practice).
As always the action kicks off at 8pm est / 7pm cst
