I’ve been debating writing something about the blogger meet and greet with Ted Black the other day, then Ryan over at the Roost went ahead and wrote just about what I would have, right down to the Galactic Senate pod bit. So read that, first, if you haven’t. How do I feel? Well, it’s clear why Terry Pegula has Ted as the public face of the franchise - he fits in just as well with us regular folk as he probably does in the boardroom. I, on the other hand, write on the internet for a reason. Like Ryan said, Ted is a guy you want to listen to and believe. I’m happy to have been included, especially for game with an ending like that. It’s an interesting look at how the other half (or is it 1%?) watches games even without meeting the team prez. Oh, and hey: rope line thoughts:
- John Scott is big. (shocking, right?)
- I like Jason Pominville as captain, but he sounds hilarious trying to pump guys up.
- Steve Ott gave a little girl a stick, which was fun to see. I wonder how often that happens?
- It must be really strange for the players. Felt like they were trying NOT to look at us. Awkward. Apparently there are times when the players are more interactive. It was a tie game at the time which may have had an effect.
