Coming off of a solid win at WTFox 2, Cloud9s Joseph Mango Marquez has his eyes set on one thing: the 3v0, or his coveted third Evolution Championship Series (Evo) trophy.Evo welcomed back Super Smash Brothers Melee in 2013 after its community won a donation drive. The annual tournament presents the largest stage that fighting games have to offer, and Mango seized the opportunity to win his first Evo trophy. A year later, he repeated his championship run by winning another trophy.2015 started slowly for Mango, who had several questionable performances until Mothers Day, when he went on a massive losers bracket run to win Press Start. Flash-forward to Evo 2015, where Mango yet again had an early start in losers after losing to Justin Plup McGrath. He made it to the final day after a nail-biting set against Sami Druggedfox Muhanna. Despite the close calls, the story felt familiar. He ran through losers at Evo 2013 and had made several long losers runs in the past. Victory was not out of reach for him.The final day progressed as expected; Mango made quick work of Daniel ChuDat Rodriguez and his next opponent would be none other than Juan Hungrybox Debiedma. Things looked smooth as Mango took game one and had the lead in game two, but Hungrybox persevered to snatch the game away from Mango. Even with the loss, Mango still had a coveted counter-pick stage in Yoshis Story, ideal for killing Hungryboxs Jigglypuff at low percentages.With an early grab, Mango looked to convert into an up-air, but instead fell off the edge for an early self-destruct. This early deficit exploded into a larger one as Mango fell to another self-inflicted death. The lead had become too large to overcome and the storybook ending that Mango was looking for came to a screeching halt in the form of a painful fifth place finish.After the awards ceremony, he quickly faded into the background in Vegas, disguised in a pair of jeans, a button-up shirt, and sunglasses, a far cry from his usual beanie, Cloud9 shirt, and shorts. No one recognized him for hours as he grieved for his failure.A lot has happened since then. Hes had his low points, like when he finished 17th at HTC Throwdown, but hes begun to find his groove and also regain his competitive drive to be the best.Last year [in 2015], I didnt see the fire in him. He was complacent. But this year I see it. Hes angry and wants to win. I havent seen this Mango in over two years, said Monica Noriega, Mangos mother.On the other side of the console, his rivals have improved significantly from 2014 and Mango recognizes the respect that he now owes them. He stated that hes inviting several of southern Californias top players to his house for extended practice. Along with the usual Norwalk partners such as Joey Lucky Aldama and Johnny s2j Kim, Mango is inviting other top players such as Weston Westballz Dennis and Hugo HugS Gonzalez.Even with a fantastic victory at WTFox 2, Mango knows that he needs to do everything possible to win, even if it means adjusting his lifestyle habits. To prepare physically, he has reduced his consumption of alcohol and started maintaining a better sleeping schedule. The regrets of Evo 2015 still linger in the back of his mind. On a family outing, his mother reminisced over Mangos younger years.Even when he was a little kid, he only wanted to win. Hed get angry if he didnt, even if he placed second, she said.To Mango, its either win or bust. Second place is a failure. Sure, that amount of pressure could be self-destructive, but its that same mindset that pushed Mango into winning his first two Evo trophies.A year ago, he felt lost in a meta that seemed to surpass him with constant optimization in gameplay from the Swedes and Hungrybox. Now, he believes that he has figured out the meta through fine-tuning his pacing of aggressive and passive play. If he can find the right frame of mind to reach top eight, he believes that he can take the whole thing. Its up to him to maximize those chances.During Evo weekend on July 15-17, youre not going to see Mango partying late at night in a hotel room. Youre not going to see him eating hamburgers and fries like a normal gamer would. Instead, hell be in bed at a reasonable hour and hell be eating a balanced breakfast comprised of yogurt and fruits. Its all business from here until Sunday night, when he hopefully wins his third Evo trophy in front of the huge audience at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. Slip On Vans Cheap .

PITTSBURGH -- In the end, familiarity was the deciding factor for Rob Scuderi. For the Pittsburgh Penguins, too. Less than an hour into NHL free agency, the Penguins were reunited with an old friend. Four years after he signed with the Los Angeles Kings weeks after helping the Penguins to their third Stanley Cup, Scuderi signed a four-year, $13.5 million contract with Pittsburgh early Friday afternoon. "When moving your family, the transition can be kind of odd and awkward," the 34-year-old defenceman said. "I thought going to Pittsburgh, the familiarity with the area would make for an easier transition. "And most important, the team in a win-now mode." Scuderi, who also won the 2012 Cup with Los Angeles, missed only nine games over his four seasons with the Kings. The Penguins advanced to the Stanley Cup Final during Scuderis final two seasons with the Penguins; since, they have won three playoff series in four years. They were swept by the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference finals last month. Scuderis teams are 13-5 in playoff series with two Stanley Cups, three appearances in the final and four conference finals over the past seven years. "Lets face it, Im a plug," Scuderi said of his simple game. "I play good defence, Im going to move the puck tape-to-tape when I can, and when I dont have an opportunity to, Im going to put the puck in the safest areas. Its not the prettiest thing in the world, everyone knows that. But it can be effective. "One of the reasons I felt comfortable coming back is that tthe Penguins said that was what they were looking for.dddddddddddd I want to make sure Im a good fit for what they need and that together we can do some good things." Scuderi has seven goals and 79 assists in 585 career NHL games, including one goal and 11 assists in 48 games last season. He had a career bests in points (16) and plus-minus (+23) with the Penguins in 2008-09. A 1998 fifth-round pick of Pittsburghs, the Syosset, N.Y., native became a regular with the Penguins following the 2004-05 lockout. He was a reliable presence on the ice and popular in the dressing room, but with the Penguins up against the salary cap he was let go in free agency in July 2009, signing a four-year, $13.6 million deal with Los Angeles. His extended family remains in Long Island, and thats where his wifes family also resides. Scuderi said that was no small factor in his decision to relocate back east. Other than the Kings, Scuderi said he was only willing to consider signing with Eastern Conference teams. "To be able to play (the three New York City area-based) teams consistently wand with Pittsburgh being a seven-hour drive or a one-hour flight as compared to a cross-country flight is something that I missed over the last few years. I missed having them be part of our lives and their grandkids lives." Scuderi has appeared in 515 of a possible 540 regular-season games since the 2006-07 season, including the past 264 consecutive regular-season contests. He hasnt missed a game since Dec. 7, 2009, playing in every game of the past three seasons.
