Y2J started his career off like every other young Werewolf in the game of Blood Bowl. Hoping to cause casualties, score TD's and make a name for himself in the bloodiest of all Blood Bowl Leagues ....Thunderbowl.
Little did coach Lord Chaos know, that he was going to do all of that and then some.
Season 1 of the BC League was actually season 16 in ancient Thunderbowl records. The defunct 15 seasons fell into history books with the death of LRB4 and a new league had risen with the birth of LRB5. It was called the BC League. The Rottin' Ass Rasslers were the new Necro team to headline LC's Thunderbowl career.
Y2J was hired in season 2 of the BC League by the Rottin' Ass Rasslers, shortly after their loss in the season 1 Thunderbowl Finals to the 206'ers. The 206'ers were a broken LRB5 Khemri team coached by LC's evil, ugly twin brother Keggie Mckill.
See back in game 5 of season 1, the original RAR werewolf, Triple H (who gained Mighty Blow on his second skill and was supossed to be the franchise player) was killed in a game vs the 206'ers, who again was coached by LC's evil, ugly twin brother Keggie Mckill. The RAR ended up playing 4 of the last 5 season games and the Thunderbowl Final, with mercenary Werewolves. Just to fill the void of the empty #3 spot. It was a rough go even though they went 7-2-1 in season 1 and they longed for a second Wolf.
Season 2 (17)
In the 2nd game of season 2, the RAR hired Y2J to team up with the Rock and face a Chaos Dwarf team called the Darkland Warriors. In his first game ever, Y2J got a casualty and helped his team to a 3-2 win. In his second match ever, he scored a TD vs the 206'ers, who again was coached by LC's evil, ugly twin brother Keggie Mckill. Even though they lost the match and ended their rivalry against the 206'ers a dismal 0-3, Y2J was one SPP away from his first skill.
2 games passed and the RAR had split them with a loss to the Triple Skulls and a win vs the Freaks, and Y2J was slowing down and coach LC was starting to think he was just another weak ass Werewolf. Then it happened. Game 7 vs the Warlords. Bright rising star, the Rock was killed and the RAR were once again left with one lone pussy Werewolf. But Y2J played 4 games with the Rock and was a quick learner. He got a casualty and they won 2-1. He gained his first skill and guess what happened? C'mon, what do you think happened. Did you think ...IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK! Cause you see the Rock taught Y2J one thing before he died. ONE THING! He taught him to take his claws ....shine them up real nice ....turn them sumbitches sideways ....AND SHOVE THEM STRAIGHT UP ALL HIS OPPONENTS CANDY ASSES!!!!!
That's right, I went there. This is a Wrestling themed team for a reason. ...He gained Mightyblow on his first skill.
The following game was the beginning of the new era in RAR history. It was game 8 vs Grom's Beerback Blazers (the same game where the other future HOF Werewolf, HBK made his debut) and Y2J lit it up! Gaining 1 completion, 3 casualties and a TD to dominate the Beerbacks 3-0, Y2J gained his second skill in as many games. He rolled doubles again and chose Juggernaught.
Athough the RAR lost a tight game 9 vs the Scandinavian Superstars. they won their game 10 vs the Love Machine and sent their coach packing from Thunderbowl to go eat Thor pity burgers and play 40k. The RAR ended the season 7-3-0 and Y2J was preparing for his first playoff match.
Y2J could do little to help in round 1 of the playoffs as the Ulthuanian Lords pulled off a brilliant push play to score a one turn TD on turn 16 and send it to overtime. Where they won the toss and scored with ease to knock the RAR out of the pitchure. (See how I did that? Pitch-ure. Awesome play on words.) The Lords went on to win the Thunderbowl Final vs the 206'ers who was coached by ...Aw fuck it. They won the fuckin thing and the RAR went on a 2 season hiatus.
Season 5 (20)
After another failed hunt for the TB title with a Lizardman team called the Annoying Goofs, coach Lord Chaos decided to bring back the RAR one more time. But this ended up being Elsie's worst season to date in the BC League as a TB coach and again the RAR's future was being re-evaluated.
Athough game 1 was a disastrous beginning for the RAR, as they lossed 4-2 to the Rat Bastards, Y2J picked up where he had left off 2 season ago and gave the Bastard's Rat Ogre MA-1. In another losing effort in game 2 vs the Moonlight Embrace, Y2J rolled the casualty board with a BH, AV-1 to a Wight and a kill on a Flesh Golem. Athough the RAR were now 0-2 to start the season, Y2J gained his 3rd skill and was now 3/3 with doubles. He gained Piling on.
In his next 4 games Y2J helped the RAR turn things around going 3-0-1, mounting 7 casualties and 3 tds. Then the celebration stopped as in game 7, the RAR found themselves vs a hot Dwarf team called the Short and Restless and they got shut out 2-0. But once again Y2J shined, gaining 2 more casualties, brining his casualty streak to 7 games and gaining the coveted Block skill for his 4th skill. The celebration was short lived again as Y2J did fuck all to help his team as they lossed 4-1 to Aztecas to drop them below .500 again.
In game 9, Y2J got 2 casualties vs the Dirty Death Dogs brining the team back up to .500 with a record of 4-4-1. Game 10 was another memorable game vs the Freaks and Weirdos where Y2J earned his first ever MVP for gaining 0 SPP and recording a 20+ straight push fest, where frenzy and rerolls only brought more Arrows. Go figure.
Playoffs saw the RAR leave in the second round where Y2J choked again and gained no SPP in both games, leaving LC no choice but to put this failing team on the back burner once again. Even though Y2J led the league this season in SPP with 47 and Casualties with 15, LC had enough of them for the time being.
First Ever Challenge Match
After Lord Chaos failed yet again to make it to the TB Final with his Goofs in season 6, season 7 was an amazing 6 months for him as he went undefeated for the first time in regular season play, with a Norse team called the FN Givers. Compiling a record of 9-0-1 in regular season play, he also took the Givers all the way to the Powerbowl Final, only to lose to the Dread. Before the playoffs started however, something else happened.
With shitty coach attendance records every season, the TBRC brought in a new system where any previous TB team could play a challenge match on Cup Day vs an opponent as long as both teams were not active in the current season's playoffs. The RAR were itching to play again and with the Givers having a bye first round, LC scanned the room for an opponent. It took literally seconds for him to lock his sights on highly elite coach Redman who also had a bye first round. There was only one option. LC walked across the Compass Point Inn ballroom floor, tapped the giant Tony Hogan on the shoulder and said "I could not live with myself if I did not challenge your Heathens to a game with my Rasslers right now." To no surprise coach Redman, who is no pussy, accepted the challenge and why wouldn't he? The Heathens of Blood Bowl were previous 2 time Thunderbowl Champions with a awesome record of 22-1-6. Only losing once to some forgotten Elf team. They were a team themed of notorious Thunderbowl coaches as the players. A mighty Undead team with killer players themselves, like Spaceman Spiff and Rimmer. He had nothing to lose. After all, he had the devil behind him.
Not only was this a challenge match of 2 power house teams, it was historic as it was the first challenge match in the history of TB and it embodied the word challenge as it was going to be a hell of one for both teams. The game started off strong for Y2J as he set his sights on the Heathen's #1 scorer, an AG+ Ghoul named after Y2J's coach Lord Chaos. From the famous words of the Fresh Prince "One shot that's all it took, he hit me on the ribs and my insides shook." Except it wasn't his ribs, it was his neck as Y2J gave Lord Chaos AG-1 and retired his ass from the game of BB. Y2J had to use piling on to do so and it only took one classic Hogan foul to end the Y2J terror as he was BH and sent off the pitch himself by turn 3. Even though he was gone, Y2J set the tone for the RAR who bashed their way to a 1-0 victory and handed the unstoppable Heathens their second career loss. Boo Yah!
Season 9 (24)
Coach LC ended up using a new C league High Elf team called the Elfpire Blocks Back in season 8 as he said he'd be the flip flopper in case there were odd numbers. Even though the RAR were ready to kick some ass in season 8, they had to wait one more season.
6 months passed and athough the Elfpire were top seed in the playoffs, they were bounced in yet another 2nd round upset in the Powerbowl playoffs and LC was getting sick of the rookie C league after 2 straight seasons in it and nothing to show. It was time to play with the big boys in B league again and who better than the RAR, who were coming off their greatest win of all time vs the Heathens.
This time around, despite losing 3 players to death in game 1, they broke their franchise record going 8-1-1 and Y2J was kicking some serious ass. With setting a league record of 20 casualties in a season and a league record of 61 SPP in a season, Y2J had his eyes on his first Thunderbowl Championship. But once again, it was not to be as Y2J and the RAR made yet another early exit, losing in 2nd round to Game Over Man 4-2. Game Over Man was a Slann team who was bumped up to the Thunderbowl Playoffs due to a no show. After going down 4-0 by the early stages of the second half, Y2J decided to do what he did best a cause a mother fuckin ruckas! If he couldn't win the game, then God Dammit, he was going to make sure the other team didn't win their next match! Y2J badly hurt 2 players then killed their best player, Xenomorph - An AG+ and St+ Lineman, on turn 16. Xenomorph never made it to the semis but he did land a spot on the RAR roster as a zombie and is still there to this day.
With another early exit for the RAR, Lord Chaos gained the new nick name "Lord Choke" as he had never made it passed the second round in the B League, despite being top seed several times. Y2J had a great season, getting a casualty in every single game including playoffs. Next season he was going to bring the TB gold home, right?
Season 10 (25)
Game 1: Athough the RAR were not set to face those bastard 206ers from the past, they were set to open the season vs LC's evil, ugly twin brother Keggie and his new CD team, the Dwarblin Dentaurs. Y2J didn't even get a chance to make an impact in this game as he was injured by Bullnicio Cen-tauro late in the first half. Before Keggie could roll the injury, LC pulled a trick out of the book of Redman and rolled the regen first to try and nulify the injury roll and make in not matter before it was even rolled. ....But it mattered. Y2J failed the regen. Instead of rolling the injury right away, coach keggie announced to the 30+ venue of nerds and geeks that he just injured the great Y2J and was about to roll. With everyone either standing up from their chairs or crowding around the table, Keggie rolled the dice of doom. .....ST - 1!!!!! The crowd roared and cheered and even laughed at the misfortune of LC's best player.
Was this the end of Y2J? He had 142 SPP at this point. Could a St 2 Werewolf last long enough in a high powered Blood Bowl league like Thunderbowl to even attempt to gain 34 SPP and become a legend? Well a 10 page thread in the TB forums suggested he couldn't do it. That he was a loser and not worth the weight in TV. Elsie thought otherwise. He would not give up hope on the great Y2J. Despite all the negative press and the head shaking and even nick names of "Y2STR", LC said " He's going to become a legend or die trying!" Athough the RAR should have lossed the game to the Dentaurs, the rattled team managed to keep it a tie.
In game 2 a Y2J-less RAR managed to tie another CD team and was now set for game 3 vs their third CD team in a row. The 40 Grinders, coached by Blamaham, Y2J's worst critic. This was Y2J's first game with 2 St and he wanted to prove everyone wrong and that he still had it. ...He didn't though. He failed to hurt anyone on his first 2 knockdowns and was fouled to death by a rookie Hobgoblin. Lucky for him, regen worked this time and he was able to play again. But after another failed attempt at injuring a player he was KO'd and barely played the rest of the match. The RAR tied the match and was now 0-0-3 to start the season. The great team that once was was looking like a bunch of hasbeens, without their great leader at his full potential.
The next match for Y2J and the RAR was an Ogre team who proved to be a tough match in the previous season, the Lucky Charms. Y2J was jacked for this one. The forums were buzzing about how shitty he was and how he was a shell of his former self but he did not let it get ot him. Y2J wreaked havoc on the Ogres, tieing the TB record with casualties in a single game by a player with 6. (The record was later broke in a scandal) An Ogre and 4 Snotlings were BH before he killed another Ogre late in the game. The RAR were still undefeated but 1-0-3 was still a shit record.
Y2J then got 9 casualties and a TD in his next 3 games vs Chaos, High Elves and Orcs and helped his team to a a 4-0-3 record. And he also officially took the all time casualty lead from Jehovah Joe with 61 casualties.
The last 3 games of the season, athough the RAR never lost, he did very little except to score a TD in the last game of the season vs the Plainsmen. He was fouled once again and BH too in that game. He finally did it though. He became a legend. That 1 TD in game 10 was all he needed. He gained 34 SPP in 8 games with ST 2. Sure he had all the other tools to do so but he still accomplished an amazing feat. When many coaches would have dropped him and left him for dead. The same coaches who are scared off high TV. Scared of inducements. He showed all of them he was well worth it and he walked into the playoffs with Dauntless.
Y2J had seriously injured 2 High Elves and BH another in a win over the Excelsiors in the first round but once again ...yeah yeah yeah ...the RAR were bounced in round 2 in a crazy 7-5 loss to the Infectious Ratpack. Y2J was Ko'd for the better half of it and so was his dreams of winning a TB championship.
Season 11 (26)
Fuck it, LC was going to keep playing the RAR. Y2J was ready to take every foul coming. He was ready to Pile On even on KO's and take on the entire league by himself. The difference was, he didn't need to, this time he had a team behind him.
Game One was another classic battle vs the Excelsiors, who despite having a roster that looks like someone spilt Xmas tic tacs on the Stat section, always hung in there with the RAR. Y2J scored 3 casualties against the High Elves in a win. The next 2 games saw him only getting 1 casualty and 1 completion. Game 4, the RAR did the unthinkable and had to forfeit for the first time ever in LC's career to motherfuckin Goblins.
Game 5 saw the RAR face off with the Steel Dragons. A Veteran Dwarf team coached by the other original Thunderbowl member, General Jason. A coach that LC had the longest history with, dating back to season 1, and by season 1, I mean the actual season 1 that was forgotten in the ancient archives. A coach he hadn't played for 9 seasons. Athough the RAR only tied this match, Y2J set another TB milestone by becoming the first player in BC League history to go double digits in kills when he recorded his 10th kill by murdering Dirk Diggler.
The RAR won another in game 6 and was set to face the 40 Grinders in game 7. Last season, Y2J was humiliated by this team and he felt it hard on the forums for it. This time he wasn't going to let coach Blamaham drop his pants and shit on his head again. Y2J compiled 5 casualties vs the Chaos Dwarves and controlled the pitch to lead his team to another victory.
The RAR won their next 2 games and Y2J ended the season with 3 casualties in game 10 vs Orc World Order and helped tie a franchise record with a 8-1-1 record. The only loss being the forfeit vs motherfuckin Goblins. With a bye 1st round of the playoffs, the RAR were set for the dreaded 2nd round.
Y2J only scored 1 casualty in round 2 vs. the Immortals but he was a major factor in the OT win, KOing several Elves in the second half to keep the attrition to the RAR's advantage and send the team into the semi finals for the first time in their history.
The semis were not going to be easy as the RAR had to face the last team to actually beat them on the pitch, going back to last season's playoffs, the Infectious Ratpack. Y2J again, only scored 1 casualty but he still pounded Skaven into the tits down position and into the KO box on several occasions. When the RAR won another coin toss, Y2J sat back and watched his fellow Werewolf HBK take his team to the Thunderbowl finals.
The Final was vs the #1 seed, the Steel Dragons. The only team the RAR couldn't beat this season. Coach General Jason vs Lord Chaos. The 2 original coaches from a distant TB era were set to face off for TB gold for the first time ever. For all the gravy. Y2J could taste it and was ready ...holding a plate of mash potatoes.
The Final started late and was a bit of a blur and athough music pumped in the background, there was little coaches left to watch it and the final somewhat resembled the poker matches in the Russian's basement from the movie Rounders. Y2J didn't wait long when he recorded his first casualty on turn 1. He got another in the game at one point and definitely helped keep the Dwarves in check for the most part of the game. Going up 1-0 by turn 2 of the game, The RAR got a blitz, where Y2J was able to blitz a Dwarf away from the ball after a failed Dragons pick up and help his team take the lead 2-0. With time ticking away in the middle of the second half and all the coaches gone except the 2 lone warriors on either side of the table, Y2J and the RAR could sense it was in the bag. And sure enough, as the final buzzer went, the RAR and Y2J did it.
After 13 years and 26 seasons, Lord Chaos finally won the Thunderbowl Championship. And there was one player in all of LC's coaching career that made this happen more than any other. One player that was deemed unkeepable after breaking his collarbone. One player that everyone laughed at after that notorious day 25 games prior. One player that survived countless fouls, injuries and deaths. One player that was talked about more than any other in the league. One player that had the most bounties on his head and was the top story constantly in the headlines of TBMZ. One player that held and still holds constant Thunderbowl records. One player that despite this being his Hall Of Fame write up, plans on breaking more records season after season.
One player ....named Y2J.
