This is Chachi.
I've known Chachi for a minute or two. It's been just long enough for him to learn to find joy in driving me crazy by taunting me via The Twitters, running up to me and hug-tackling me whenever I see him in person (Have I mentioned that I am anti-hug? I'm anti-hug. Yet, he's still alive ... ), and various other forms of torture.
In other words, he's a pretty good guy.
He's also a HUGE geek. The biggest. I've never met anyone who geeks out over video games as much as he does. Y'all, he has video game tattoos. Mention Zelda to him and you just might end up in a half hour discussion about which game is best (Ocarina of Time is the correct answer, btw).
Chachi combines his love of gaming, his willingness to risk life and limb, and that "pretty good guy" thing every year and does a charity evernt called Chachi Plays. Basically, he raises money for some fantastic local charities. He's doing Chachi Plays for the fourth time right now. Toonseum and Dreams of Hope are the beneficiaries. He's going to play video games for 24 straight hours so that at-risk kids in Pittsburgh can have access to art programs.
