Who writes for us?


President & Author

FriendlyFireOn is a Super Smash Brothers Melee Falco player and stream aficionado from Cincinnati, Ohio. He initially found his fortune from diamond mining in South Africa before moving to Ohio to start The Turnip. After countless hours of backbreaking labor and thousands of dollars, he developed a website to bring true and accurate news to the oft-misled Super Smash Bros. Melee community.


Brigham Pratt


Brigham Pratt was discovered by FriendlyFireOn in Aspen, Colorado at the ripe age of 3 months old. Brigham had been created by scientists from Aspen to be an efficient machine with one purpose: to write the truth. Pratt’s one true directive is to let the people of smash know what has happened, when it has happened, why it has happened, and whether or not UCF is on.
