Since Ian of Detroit Bad Boys said it so well, I am quoting his announcement of The First annual Need4Sheed/Detroit Bad Boys Blogfest. Consider this the official press release:
What’s so special about April 1 (other than it being the birthday of the late Bo Schembechler, Method Man, and Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito1)?
April 1, 2007 (a Sunday) happens to be the date of the inaugural Need4Sheed/Detroit Bad Boys Blogfest. A date when creators, commenters, readers, and/or hangers-on (i.e., me) of your favorite Piston blogs, Need4Sheed and DBB, will join forces at the Palace of Auburn Hills for an afternoon of
D-Wade flopping, Delfino domination, and frequent trips to the Red Bull Bar.
There might be prizes. There will probably be profanity and/or awkward high-fives. And there will definitely be an opportunity for you to meet up with some of the personalities that have made N4S and DBB so successful…namely you all. Honestly, there are any number of sites to get your basketball news/views from, and most are just as capable of stringing together a few sentences without too many typos. But sites like N4S and DBB only work because you all choose to visit and share your opinions. This is a way for us all to put faces to names.
Is (Matt) Watson really 7 feet tall? You’ll find out.
Does Natalie roll with an entourage? You’ll find out.
Am I “Pierce Brosnan” sexy? Not by a longshot.
We looked into a group rate and it really wasn’t much of a discount – so go ahead and buy your tickets and plan on meeting up before, during and/or after the game. We’ll have more details as the game approaches about when/where we’ll meet, but for sure it’ll be in the Palace, and possibly at a nearby establishment afterward, as well, if enough people are interested.
This should be a great time. We hope to see you there.
