LWJC reader Jimmy T. shot an email over to me over the weekend that contained this video — yes, this is the legendary trailer that Ponder created for the B5 Tournament nearly a decade ago, but more importantly (and hilariously), it’s the spark that started the hot and steamy relationship between John Choi and Sandstorm. Check out this historical recap:
