I'll give my quick rundown of what it's like to work the NHL All Star Game Fan Fair at the end. Unfortunately, there wasn't really much to go a full post on so we're going to address some properly inflated topics.
*It ain't no Champions Lane - Ohio Buckeyes took 12 days to actually throw their dick-sniffing party for some reason but they did so on Saturday morning at their dump stadium. I was surprised that only 45K were there and I think Poopson counts as two thousand. Fake fans IMO. Of course, our dipshit mayor had to go change the name of Lane Ave to Undisputed Way. Idiot. Champions Lane is still the superior street.
*RIP Mr. Cub - Ernie Banks died on Friday and if you think that his corpse would avoid jokes here then you have no idea how this site works. Poor guy nearly made it 84 years all while being a loser every day of his entire life. I never understood why he always wanted to play two games other than he sure did enjoy losing. If only he would have chosen the superior Chicago team he would have been able to hoist a trophy in 2005 while the manager called him in a "pendejo". Yes, that will do.
*The NHL Fantasy Draft is a solid watch - I highly doubt that any of you watched this on Friday night but it was enjoyable. All the players are waiting to get drafted fantasy football style onto their All Star team while getting blasted on top shelf liquor. More sports need to get their best players drunk on live TV while Ovi is campaigning to win a free Honda Accord (what they give to their Mr. Irrelevant).
*LOL Dumb Teams - The 2011 NBA Draft was quite a significant amount of garbage. Yeah, Kyrie was a legit #1 pick and is a star but the rest of the top ten is a real who's who of role players and feces. I say this because Klay Thompson, the #11 pick that year, went off for 37 points in one quarter on Friday night. Here are a few guys taken before him in 2011: Derrick Williams, Bismack Biyombo, Jan Vesely, and JIMMER!
*G$ as Ambassador - Fun weekend in Columbus. And just being a part of it all was cool. Thursday, I helped out with a street hockey clinic which was kind of boring but whatever. Friday and Saturday, I helped run the Precision Passing station which was enjoyable. I got to do some serious work on my stick-handling, puck possession, and saucer passes. Friday, Phil Kessel and his bruhs came by these game areas and were trying them out (not Kessel himself who was attached to this smoking hot Asian broad) but his boyz did. I can't even begin to tell you how BRAH these guys were. I tried to explain how these simple drills worked and all of them might as well have replied with a "CAN IT GO OFF-ROADIN' BRAH!" Hilarious. And Kessel's boys are terrible. Sunday, I worked the Fantasy Draft location where people could get their pics taken where Friday's event was held. Big -Rex stopped by to say hello. Nick Foligno showed up randomly and took pictures on the stage after saying hello to me. We are bros now. The only thing that I regret is not getting a picture with the Cup. The problem was that my shifts never lined up where I could achieve that. If you closed the convention down, it was easy. I never did.
It was enjoyable and a good experience. From everything that I've read online, the city has blown away NHL officials and fans and that is a good thing. Columbus done good. I would recommend doing something like this. In FACT, I will probably look into the MLB All Star Game this July in Cincy. Peace out, bruh.
