The Intersection of (offline) Life and (online) Life [NHL TweetUp 2009]

If you read my last post (actually… it’s the one right before my Easter post, but I’m lazy and can’t figure out how to properly word its location…), you know that our family has become obsessed a big fan of hockey. (If you haven’t read it, then scroll down and read it. I’ll wait) And now, because of this newfound obsession hobby, my online and offline lives have intersected once again.

Last night, my family attended the Nashville area NHL TweetUp. All over North America, TweetUps were being held to kickoff the NHL playoffs. While our beloved Preds didn’t make it into the playoffs <sob> it was still a great chance to meet face-to-face with other obsessed fans who I have gotten to know through Twitter.

My little guy had his photo taken. He was representin’, yo!

We got to meet Mr. and Mrs. “Forechecker” (and their cute kids)

We missed out on seeing Gnash. He came and went before we arrived. But how neat that the Predators actually got involved with the event (they also donated a lot of autographed items for giveaways)

If you want to read more about the NHL TweetUps and find out if there is one in your city (some cities are holding theirs later in the week), read here and here.

Thanks to the organizers and the Predators, for making this event a success!

    I never got to meet you at the TweetUp (but then again, I didn’t get to meet a lot of people) but it was a blast! I did see your little guy walking around behind me a couple times. : )

    Hope to see you at the Draft Party! Codey and I at The 303:30 will be doing a live podcast from there!

  2. Not a hockey fan, but Tweetup sounds fun.
