Appearance

In his prime years, Flash was taller than most gnomes, and as a professional athlete, donned a rather muscular build, as a result of spending majority of his day time in the gym. Like most gnomes, Flash's face is round in shape,with pointy ears extending outward from both sides of his head, similar to that of an Elf.

In his later years, Flash sprouted a tough brown colored beard to further signify his brutal persona, hoping to strike fear into his many opponents while on the gnome ball field.

As a player, Flash wore a padded jet-black sleeve on his right shooting arm, which he claimed to help him keep his focus during the duration of a close game, as well as help him keep his arms balanced and help with his follow through. On his legs he wore tight jet-black paddings, to protect him from any residual damage suffered after acrobatic plays to the basket.

Throughout his career, Flash's shoes changed on several occasions, as a result of obtaining his signature shoe brand, the Flash Backs.

Early Life

Fizzlewhistle was born on the 36th of Moevyng in the year of 125 in the 5th Age to a 16 year old single mother. Growing up was a struggle for Buago, who moved many times during his childhood and never received the same toys and joy other gnomes his age normally had.

As a youth, Fizzlewhistle was a social outcast, bullied by the other children for his lack of athletiscm. This harsh criticism would later fuel Buago to work hard to achieve greatness.

Amateur Career

High School

The summer of his 9th grade year, Fizzlewhistle worked hard to improve his gnomeball skills. He was satisfied with his level of play, and was confident in his ability to make the school team. During try outs, the coaches ignored Fizzlewhistle for how he looked, giving more attention to those who looked physically bigger. This angered Fizzlewhistle, who knew darn well that gnomeball was a game of skill, and he knew deep down, that he had a love for the game which was unrivaled, and that he had worked so much harder than the rest of them. This didn't help him, however, as he was cut from the team his freshmen year.

Encouraged by his failure to make the team his freshmen year, Fizzlewhistle worked intensively to improve his game. He finally gained the respect he deserved from his peers, constantly showing them up in head-to-head situations. Try outs came around, but just like last year, Fizzlewhistle was cut from the gnomeball team his sophomore year.

Moving around every so often finally seemed to be finally be somewhat beneficial for Fizzlewhistle, as he made the varsity gnome ball team after having to switch schools. His junior season, Fizzlewhistle finished with averages of 28 points, 8 rebounds, and 9 assists.

In his senior season, Fizzlewhistle became the center of attention, rated as the best gnome ball player in the nation. He concluded his senior season with averages of 34 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists. Fizzlewhistle was highly recruited by colleges despite playing only 2 seasons in high school.

College

Fizzlewhistle committed to Yew Univeristy towards the end of his senior year. He registered 30 points in his debut for Yew University, before ending the season with averages of 17 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists. Despite his stellar play, Yew University was knocked out in a double overtime loss in the final four. At the end of his lone year at Yew University, Fizzlewhistle declared for the 144 5th Age NGL Draft.

Led by their star player, Christian Hasslehoff, the Tortoises took a 1-0 series lead despite a record setting 47 point performance from Fizzlewhistle. The Tortoises went on to sweep the Fizzytwinkles, 4 games to none, eliminating them from playoff contention. Fizzlewhislte finished with averages of 40.2 points, 7.4 assists, and 7.2 rebounds in his first ever playoff series. After the series had ended, Twame Brown, a Kandarin sports analyst, stated, "I have seen the future... And it's Flash Fizzlewhistle." Fizzlewhistle earned his nickname, after using his legitimate speed to create mismatches during the series.

On the 4th of Rinta, in the Year of 148 of the 5th Age, Fizzlewhistle recorded the first ever triple double in NGL history, registering 22 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in a win over the Cabin Crystals.

Although Christian Hasslehoff averaged 23.4 points compared to Fizzlewhistle's 35.6 points in the series, the Tortoises won the series in 6 games. The Tortoises went on to win their second championship in 3 years.

At the beginning of the 150 NGL season, the Fizzytwinkles traded for former All-Star, Ryan Ellis, hoping he could provide Fizzlewhistle some much needed scoring help. The duo proved to work rather well, with the Fizzytwinkles finishing as the league's top overall seed with 39 wins. Fizzlewhislte was voted as league MVP for the second consecutive season, averaging 30.2 points compared to 17.4 points from his All-Star teammate, Ryan Ellis.

Despite averaging 17.4 points during the season, Ellis' average dropped to 11.2 points in the third round of the playoffs. Fizzlewhistle took his game to another level, averaging 37.6 points for the series, however, for the third straight year, the Fizzytwinkles bowed out to the Tortoises. After the game 6 loss, Fizzlewhistle stated he was "tired of losing", resulting in numerous trade rumors involving Ellis.

First Championship

The Fizzytwinkles once again finished atop the Eastern Conference, finishing with 41 regular season wins. Despite averages of 28.4 points, 7.4 assists, 4.8 rebounds, and 2.8 steals, Fizzlewhistle was not voted as the MVP. He did however, manage to grab his second career All-Star game MVP, after leading the East over the West, while contributing 40 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists.

Fizzlewhistle also missed the All-Star game, the first time since 145, that he was not elected as an All-Star. He suffered an ACL-Tear in his right leg, leaving reporters to declare that his career was over.

The Flash we were all so used to seeing... I don't really see any way of that ever happening again. Buago will never again be the same player, not after an injury like that.

–A reporter's response to Fizzlewhistle's ACL tear in his right knee

They however, would fail to make it past the first round, losing in 6 games to the Terrorbirds.

Hes just not the same player he once was... Buago is a shell of his former self.. If the Fizzytwinkles plan on ever winning another championship, they'll need to do so.. Without him.

–A reporter after the Fizzytwinkles' game 6 loss to the Terrorbirds


...You know.. Its tough. Is tough. Not bein' able to move my body like I used to... Not bein' able to do some of the stuff I used to. Its tough man, its definately tough. To see that everyone is agaisnt me now, all of a sudden.. It hurts man. To have no one believe in you, and tell you that your career is over.. Man I've been hearin' crap like that my whole life. It's only more motivation for me.

–Flash Fizzlewhislte after the game 6 loss

Uhm.. Its hard, man. Extremely tough. To know that we were up there the whole time.. To know we had a great opprotunity to win the game.. It just makes it that much harder to believe that we lost. I could've made some plays that could've really helped out our team.. But the shots just didn't fall tonight. But you know it happens.. It happens. And you gotta recover, you know.. You gotta get back on your feet and see the bigger picture. We'll be back man, I promise. We ain't done yet.

–Twame Brown, a sports writer, after the Fizzytwinkles' game 6 win over the Tree Village Crystals


Its unbelieveable man... It just feels so good. To know how hard we worked for this.. After losing last year man, and bein' able to say, you know, "we gotta play harder, we gotta come back better." Man every guy in that locker room was determined since day one, man. This is the best it gets. After everyone counted us out, after everyone told us we couldn't do it no more... Man, we at the top of the world! Its that simple man, the top!

–An emotional Buago, after winning his fourth championship


Decline

The 159 season marked a decline in Fizzlewhistle as a player. Due to old age, he was no longer able to play as much as he had in the past, playing a career low 35.4 minutes per game, as well as struggling to stay healthy. None the less, the Fizzytwinkles captured the 4th seed come playoff time, and willed their way back into a third consecutive finals appearance. However, their will filled attempt would come up short, as they were swept in the final round, lossing the fourth game by a total number of 38 points.

Fizzlewhistle completed the 160 NGL season with averages of 22.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 2.9 steals, and 1.2 blocks on a career low 34.5 minutes per game.

Fizzlewhistle struggled with injures in the 161 NGL Z season, appearing in only 22 games for the Fizzytwinkles. Despite his struggles, he managed 17.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 5.5 assits, and 2.4 steals. The Fizzytwinkles missed the playoffs without Fizzlewhistle for majority of the season. The Fizzytwinkles refused to trade away their former star player, stating he had done "too much" for them in the past to betray him like that.

In 162, Fizzlewhistle battled his injuries, starting all 50 regular season games for the Fizzytwinkles. He averaged the worst stats of his career, but mamaged to lead the Fizzytwinkles back into the playoffs after a 32 win season. The Fizzytwinkles managed a 7th seed, and once again, were eliminated in the first round. Fizzlewhistle struggled greatly in the five game series, averaging 11.2 points, the lowest of his post season career.

Why is this guy still playing..? He's dead weight out there! He's slowly killing himself running back and forth across the field... This guy needs to consider retiring. Not only is he old, but he sucks. Its hard to believe this guy is a former MVP.

–A reporter after the Fizzytwinkles early playoff exit


Fizzlewhistle entered the 163 season with little to no expectations. The taste of defeat from the season before still lingered in his bones, his pride damaged almost permanently by such a failure.

Fizzlewhistle had his lowest scoring season of his career at 15.4 points per game, leading the Fizzytwinkles to a 33 win season, and qualifying as the 8th seed in the 163 NGL playoffs. The Fizzywhistles managed to take game 1 of the series, agaisnt the Warheads, but lost the next 4, as well as the series, resulting in yet another first round exit.

I just don't know anymore, man.. To say that lost felt bitter would be an understatement. We didn't work hard enough the whole year, kept slacking off... And to make things worse, I'm obviously not getting any younger. It's tough man.. It's tough.

–Buago, in response to another first round exit


Redemption

Before the start of the 164 NGL season, the Fizzytwinkles aquired Asgarian small forward, Dew Tinnie through free agency, pairing him alongside Fizzlewhistle. Fizzlewhistle took a step down, playing the sidekick role to a more youthful and energetic Tinnie. Led by the duo of Fizzlewhistle and Tinnie, the Fizzytwinkles entered the 164 postseason with a chip on their shoulder, as the 5th seed. They managed an upset of the 4th seeded Terrorbirds, defeating them in a tough game 7, led by Fizzlewhistle's 20 points.

They got lucky, thats all. Surely, an old team like the Fizzytwinkles can't last much longer... Especially after an exhausting game 7 like that one.

–A reporter's response to the Fizzytwinkles first round win


The Fizzytwinkles were met by the Eastern Conference's favorite, the Newbark Warheads, led by leauge MVP, Tar Jenkins, in the second round of the 164 NGL playoffs. After losing both games on the road, the Fizzletwinkles found themselves down 2-0 in the series. Fizzlewhistle refused to lose, scoring 45 points in game 3 to help the Fizzytwinkles survive.

The Fizzletwinkies managed to steal away game 5 behind 27 points from Fizzlewhistle, and closed out the top seeded Warheads in game 6, with 35 points from Fizzlewhistle.

Wow.. I didn't know he still had it in him. He looked like Flash out there tonight.. I'm stunned man. I don't know what to say.

–Tar Jenkins' response to Fizzlewhistle's big series


The Fizzlewhistles found themselves in the east finals as the fifth seed. There, they were met by the youthful Terrorbirds.

They had a great run.. But I think it ends here for the Fizzytwinkles

Retirement and HIV controversy

Fizzlewhistle officially retired following a game 7 victory in the 164 NGL finals, capturing his fifth NGL championship title. It was later discovered that he was forced to retire, after contracting HIV after having slept around frequently. It was revealed in The Gnome magazine in an interview with Fizzlewhistle, that he had slept with over a thousand woman throughout his gnomeball career, and contracted the virus by not using protection.

I would like to apologize to all of those I may have infected over the course of the last 20 or so years. I would also like to apologize to my teammates, for sleeping with their wives... Daughters, even. Lastly, I would like to apologize to the leauge itself, for taking advantage of the power I obtained as a player here. I was unware of the consequences at the time, and will spend the rest of my life in regret.

–Fizzlewhistle, during his HIV press conference

Character Conception

I've been a basketball fan my whole life!!! Basketball I can honestly say is a huge part of everything for me, like I don't know where I would be without it. I first fell in love with basketball during the year 2000's, when Shaq and Kobe were winning all of their championships, and Shaq was always my favorite player! I mean come on, when your a little kid and all you see is this huge guy dunking on everyone and just dominating the game as a whole, your going to become pretty obsessive! Anyways, sometime during my childhood Shaq got traded to the Miami Heat, after they failed to beat Detroit in the 2004 NBA Finals. So then, I became a Heat fan, and I've been one since! I still rememeber watching Dwyane Wade take over during 2006, and after Shaq retired, he's been my favorite player!
