TC Newspaper Article

What a surprise when I opened the evening newspaper in Fort Wayne,In and saw a picture an article about TC and Biotest ,granted it was a wire report out of Colorado Spring but they printed it. Nice big article a third of the back page.

Mind telling us what it said?

Cool, can you scan it?

Scan it and upload it. I’d like to read it. Or post a link to the newspaper’s website, if they have one.

This might be it, from October 31 in The Gazette in Colorado Springs.

Thats gotta be it. Good article. Glad to see Biotest getting some respect.

Obviously I can’t be sure, but he may be referring to this article.

EDIT: Damn. Too late.

Yes that is the link :slight_smile:

Good stuff. Spike Shooter in 7-11? Damn. Let me tell you what, Spike Shooter is going to be very, very big. People who are used to Red Bull and Rockstar are going to get their minds melted. It’s the best legal stimulant I’ve ever tried.

Good article, although it is a bit of a puff piece on Biotest.

Here’s hoping that a) Spike Shooters are HUGE and b) TC and Tim Patterson reinvest some of those profits into stuff that will work for their “fan base,” i.e., the original Biotest customers/supporters and current customers who are resisting the urge to merely be average.

Hey, that’s a pretty cool article. It looks like the media managed not to mangle the message for a change… ?

very nice write up!

maybe next we’ll see some Biotest vending machines

I can’t wait to get my hands on some Spike Shooters when they start selling them in 7-11. The article says November, I hope it’s sooner rather than later.

has anyone seen them in 7-11 yet? I hate to be skeptical but since it is a dietary supplement and since it is stronger than those other energy drinks, i have a hard time thinking 7-11 would sell them because of risk of abuse.

is red bull a dietary supplement?

I’ve looked for the last 2 weeks and still no sign! Hopefully soon though. I want to try it out!

I never tried Rockstar but I found Red Bull too bitter for my taste. That’s why I love the Spike tabs. I’m looking forward to when I can go into my 7-11 and bring out a half dozen to have on hand at work. I’ve already turned on my buddies at work to Spike, and I’m sure the liquid will equally be great!

It still hasn’t showed up around here… Can’t wait to try it…

Went to my local 7-11 today and they had Spike Shooters for 2.49. This was in San Ramon, CA.
