Just over a year ago, I reached the milestone of #1 ranked Rose player in Canada on Xbox Live. While this was met with no fanfare beyond any created by me, it’s still an accomplishment I hold near and dear.

Though I haven’t played the game with much vigor (or much at all) in 2012, I just crossed another milestone.
