Post Cup Catch Up: PART 2 of Live the life with Marcello Margot and Alex Goldman of the Las Angeles Ironmen.
Posted on November 5th, 2014
Alex and I traveled to Italy, my favorite place in the world, as always it treated us great and it was an awesome way to end the European season. Landing in Rome with my best friend that I’ve played paintball with since I was 13 was unreal. We couldn’t stop talking about how awesome it was that because we’ve stuck with a sport that we loved we were in a position to travel the world and do what we love. Not to mention.. It’s ITALY! We dropped our bags off at the hotel early Monday morning and it was nothing but pasta from there on out. We explored most of Rome and just enjoyed the architecture that literally every street corner had to offer. We ate like kings, saw some beautiful sights, and got kissed by the Italian culture.
Now we are back in America and getting ready for the World Cup with a practice against dynasty this weekend. Stay tuned I’ll keep you guys updated!
Post World Cup Catch Up : PART 1 of 2- Live the life with Marcello Margot and Alex Goldman of the Los Angeles Ironmen

With a successful season wrapping up Marcello Margot and Alex Goldman of the Los Angeles Ironmen and Euro team HULK give us a glimpse of their final Millennium Series Paintball event. Make sure to check in for Part 2 of their travels leading up to the PSP World Cup next week!
Alex Goldman and I headed to Chantilly, France for the last millennium event of the year sitting in first place well ahead of the rest of the teams in our division. The only way we would not win the series is if we got dead last. Well, in a crazy turn of events, and after winning the first two events and placing second at the third, we almost didn’t even earn a pro spot.
The season long goal for team Hulk was to bring me and Alex over to help them earn a CPL spot for the 2015 millennium series season. Everything was going as planned until this last event, where it seemed as if nothing was going our way. It’s easy to blame the poor performance on exterior things but at the end of the day we as a team just didn’t show up to win the event. We thought it would be as easy as the previous events and didn’t realize that every team who would play us was going to give us their very best, knowing that we were the best team in the division.
We ended the prelims going 1-2 which didn’t put us through to Sunday. Not going to lie, I was stunned. I couldn’t believe we weren’t playing on Sunday and what was worse, was the fact that the second and third place teams in the series were lined up in a way that they wouldn’t meet each other until the finals, which would knock us down to third place overall. The stars were aligning for us to go from being the unstoppable team that was obviously going to win the series to the team that didn’t even get promoted to the CPL. The paintball gods really like to scare you sometimes!
Fortunately, both of the teams that were in position to knock us down, didn’t show up to win either. The last place team in the league, that actually knocked us out of Sunday ended up winning the event and played great throughout the entire weekend. What a bittersweet feeling. It never feels as good to win the series when you don’t win the last event of the year. It’s just not the same. As you can see in the picture below, we weren’t thrilled.

The event included 2 full days of battle and a large final confrontation, against an oversized team of warriors.
Paint was flying everywhere. Battles were fought in wooded areas, on roads, inside two and 3 story buildings and in the famous PRZ “warehouse” and “hallway of death”.
The game scenario included: airstrikes, helicopter drops, hitman/sniper cards, riot shields and rocket launchers. It was a battle over multiple flag dominations and missions… developed to truly test the skills of a General and his XOs.
The Dye DAMS and Box Rotors were predominant at this event and proved to be an excellent choice for battles in any locations… whether it was for long distance shots or CQB fights.
AZTEK was up front all weekend, fighting alongside his teammates. Up close and personal is how the Dye Tactical Warriors like to do it!
