This is the April Fool's post for the year 2000. This was meant to be a poke at the Cola factions on AOL's Multiplayer Battletech message boards.

     "Hello," an older gentleman said into the camera, "We are outside the LeoTech Press Area where LeoTech owner Vincent Leo is expected to make a very important announcement regarding soft drinks. I have word that the press conference is about to begin."

     Vincent Leo, who was wearing a pair of black jeans, a dark green shirt, and a pair of black sunglasses, walked onto the stage and behind the podium. He looked out to the collection of press and began his speech.
     "Ladies and gentlemen," Vincent began, "Today I have came before you to unveil LeoTech's latest venture. I unveil LeoTech Cola!"
     The black curtain behind him dropped, revealing a pair of giant cans of LeoTech Cola, one to each side of Vincent.
     "This cola will be in direct competition with Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and other colas. We will offer our cola at a lower cost to consumers. I foresee great profits to be made in this cola. That will be all for this press conference."
     Vincent Leo walked off the stage; not expecting what was about to happen.

     "What happened?!" Vincent yelled at the intern.      "All of our factories were destroyed by the cola companies," the male intern blurted out in fear. "They showed absolutely no mercy on us. Our entire defense force was destroyed with minimal damage to their forces." Suddenly, a knocking was heard at the door.
     "Come in," Vincent said. By the end of the sentence, Coke Special Forces broke through the door. The intern panicked and tried to get out of the office and ended up being tossed through a window to the left of the door.
     "Vincent Leo," the leader of the forces said, "LeoTech has been destroyed. You will come with us or be terminated immediately. Vincent reluctantly went with them.

Vincent woke up from his nap.
     "That dream should keep me from trying anything that stupid."
