Cardboard Fighters Are Sneaky

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – When engaging in a cardboard war, always be on the lookout for surprise attackers.

That’s the advice from Robert Easley, founder of the Cardboard Tube Fighting League, which puts together massive duels between fighters armed with cardboard tubes and homemade cardboard armor.

The CTFL’s next tournament will be in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park on July 19, and Easley is prepared for any “bizarre situation” since in past years the tourneys have been invaded by droves of cardboard robots and fierce pirates looking for a fight.

One time, a group of scallywags descended in a makeshift ship wearing little paper hats, ready to charge.

Easley recalls the invasion fondly and adds, “It was beautiful.”

Though he’s not sure if the event will be attacked this year, Easley is ready for anything, especially since he declared war on a tough rival cardboard dueling league some time ago.

He says, “They’re more hardcore. They’re okay with getting and giving a bloody nose.”
