|Proposed new logo design for Team Sleepy|
"I was inspired after watching Chris "ChrisG" Gonzalez body all of New York week in and week out with his Morrigan/Doom/Vergil team, so I began taking short naps while the matches played out", said Mr. Fontanez in a brief interview which was cut short when he abruptly began snoring and appeared to have fallen asleep. FGCNN reporters attempted to touch Mr. Fontanez's laptop in an attempt to rouse him from his slumber, at which point he suddenly regained consciousness and added, "I bust my ass day in and day out and I don't get to take breaks, so I figure I should try to get some Z's in during the streams. Besides, Marvel is getting boring and Vortex Fighter is enough to put anyone under these days. That's where the idea for 'Team Sleepy' came from".
Mr. Fontanez made the introduction, ironically, during a series of Team Tournaments on the inaugural day of the Winter Brawl stream. Mr. Fontanez started off the stream with his trademark introduction: "What's up guys, this is--" and nodded off, lightly snoring while the stream went on unattended. Spooky's team mates, Min "TS|Min" An and Arturo "Sabin" Sanchez could also been seen taking naps during their match against Team Korea in the Super Street Fighter IV Team Tournament, with Mr. An losing to Avermedia's Kelvin Jeon after opting to go for a siesta, and Mr. Sanchez pulling off a win when he unexpectedly awoke during a critical point in the match and made an amazing read. "I don't even know what happened, I was half-asleep dreaming about Kamui when I woke up and just pressed some buttons, but it worked out in the end", said a dazed Mr. Sanchez. Shorty thereafter, Mr. Sanchez was observed falling asleep in the spectator's area, mumbling something about subscribing to his Youtube channel.
In addition to the rebranding. Mr. Fontanez also intends to expand his programming offerings into areas such as sleep observation. Mr. Fontanez plans to set up a webcam in his room and stream himself sleeping, which he says "will give the skulls a deeper connection to myself as a person and the brand. I want Team Sleepy to be a family". Mr. Fontanez admits that such a stream may violate Twitch.tv's Terms of Service, but FGCNN Analysists suspect this will not be an issue, as Twitch is known to enforce their Terms of Service to suit their best interests.
Will "Team Sleepy" help Mr. Fontanez and his company cross over into the mainstream? Is Mr. Fontanez overworked, underpaid, and drowning in sleep debt? Will Mr. Fontanez regret the change now that Mr. Gonzalez has relocated to California? Let us know in the comments below!
