From what I’ve been reading on the blogs, “Meet The Players” was its usual cluster fuck as the team was “stuck in traffic” (accident) for over an hour while fans had to smell the sweet aroma of monkey poo from the zoo where the event took place. I heard fans were so bored waiting in line, one climbed into a cage and fought an emu.
Of course, since the players were over an hour late, fans were told they couldn’t take pictures (isn‘t that the reason they spent time, money on gas, and standing in line for 2 and a half hours?) Yes, once again this was a well co-ordinated event as tickets weren’t even scanned, and of course, it was freezing. How many years have they done this and they STILL can’t get it right? Steve Jobs would have fired the lot years ago. At least there was free food.
Just get rid of it! The players hate doing it, the fans are usually grumpy. The only decent time I’ve ever had at one of those things was at Tip-A-King at Paramount studios. After that, it’s been all down hill and no matter where they move the event, it always seems like a disaster.
Spotted: “Rental Man” aka “Mental Man” was on a corner today in Studio City holding a cardboard sign reading, “Need Gas to Get Home.” – I guess being an idiot for 65,000 a year just doesn’t quite stretch these days, huh?
So, the mayor of Toronto is a crack head. Brian Burke knew this a long time ago
