Ron knew of our agreement and when he saw me at the ATM pulling out the rest of his fee, he said he respected me and offered to buy my dinner.

After that he came back to Fresno to perform a show with Dan, so Esem and I went to say hi to him. He asked if KOTD had hit me up yet and I said no. He pulled out his phone and texted Lush or Malathion or SOMEONE cause I got offered a PY a couple weeks later per his suggestion.

I feel like I wouldnt be respected as a battler, personality, anything, if it wasnt for Ron. I cant imagine where things couldve possibly gone without him. Probably more sideways or diagonal than upwards. I did not pay Cutter and thankfully have not had to pay a league/battler since then, besides a $50 KOTD tryout fee in 2013 (and the occasional travel expense, which is sometimes covered as well)
Wow. That's a great story! real talk.
