    Default How cool is this?.......

    I was just sitting having a coffee and I look up and I see a guy wearing a Canadian shirt. He looked awfully familiar. Low and behold it was Rod Ferguson. I couldn't not say hi, so I introduced myself. I won't say where we were to ensure his privacy.....and mine. Likely see him often enough there though. Came off geniune and well...Canadian. For the record, he's a really nice guy. Only talked to him for a couple of minutes. If I didn't have kIds there I'd love to buy him a beer and thank him for his work.

    Anyways....just wanted to share. I feel like a kid. LOL. Rod, if you see this and want to game with me shoot me a FR. Nice talking to you. Cheers.

    The fact that he's Canadian just puts him over the top when it comes to my favourite people in the gaming industry. XD

    Ottawa. Not too far from where I grew up, although he hadn't heard of my town. Haha. I've lived in NC longer though. Does that win me a weapon skin? LOL. I likely see many EPIC folks often and don't know it. I know a few have lived in my neighborhood. One left epic and moved not long ago. Met one while getting an X-ray a year or so ago.

    He just seems extremely personable to me, like the kinda person you could walk up to and be all "Omg I love you! Can i have a hug?" and he'd be totally cool with it lol.

    "Omg I love you! Can i have a hug?" - Im betting this is what you would do if you ever met him. XD

    Ahhh. Thats awesome. Rod seems like a really great guy and seeing him in real life is equatable to seeing a mythical beast or rare pokemon.

    Totally was. Seemed like an everyman. For lack of a better word. Is that a word? He's just like you or me, but he just has a cooler job. :> Serously though. He reminds me of any number of friends I have in Canada or here in NC. Just a guy you could pour a pint with. Very friendly. Nice demeanor. He could have easily brushed me off as he likely gets bothered often by fans. Although I bet he lives in relative anonymity here. Maybe not. I don't know. It's hot as heck here and he was on his way out so I didn't want to pester him. Think we were going to hit 105F today. Still, it was cool to run into him. I'm not an awestruck kinda guy by any means. Still...I felt nervous. LOL.

    Maybe I was wrong. According to my wife it isn't cool. Told her about my encounter last night and she made fun of me and called me a loser. Ouch babe. She didn't know the name and when I explained it still didn't think it was cool. Dang. Harsh. Oh well. She's not into video games. What can you do? But honey....he helped make Gears of War. You know that game that I sneak up to the bonus room to play when I can.....

    That's awesome. I told him I couldn't wait and hoped it was baddass (judgement). Or something like that. Your link made me want a Canadian really bad. Thanks for that. Alli get here is Blue as far as Canadian beers. My hockey team always drinks it after the game. My old one that is. My current ice team only buys PBR, Bursch, or other cheap brand. Can't complain $10 for the season = win.

    You should google and watch the Molson I am Canadian commercials. Pure gold.

    Nope. Pretty much the opposite of that. I played on Guardian with a guy names Cliffy Bleszinski. He was a great player and used a lot of good tricks. Not sure if he was the real cliffyb or not. Had no bio and friends not viewable. His character had a golden helmet too. Blue 71 rank. Would be funny if it was him. He stole a few of my downs too. Lol. Retro all the way and power weapons. He racked up 4 thousand points plus. He was good. Great even. Real Cliffy? I have no idea. Don't think so. I though his was epic something.

    Time for bed. Double xp was fun.
