Have you heard of the Coke Zero Fans first initiative? Maybe you have, maybe you’ve heard about parts of it. Last night I got to experience a great moment when regular people got surprised with a night of their life.
What they did was select a random random mens league hockey game at the Master Card Centre (Leaf official practice arena). Sneak into the dressing room before anyone arrived and fill it with new jersey’s a leaf’s jersey and a coke jersey, coke and tons of other stuff.
When the guys arrived they were totally stunned and confused as to what was going on. It was pretty awesome. Then all of a sudden Komisarek, Versteeg & Armstrong walked in and surprised the crap out of them.
Then a Coke representative dropped all the details. All the guys are going to compete in a skills challenge with the leaf’s for a chance to win the opportunity to be “A Leaf for the day”.
On September 21, 2010 the winner will spend the day as a Leaf, goto press conferences, eat meals and play in an exhibition game against the Senators. From what I understand you can’t buy tickets for this game you can only win them! I might have a couple to give away, so you had better watch out!
Are you sure you don’t want a Coke Zero?

Pointing at something on the Media wall.
Here is a whole bunch of what I think we were referred to as the “New Media” crew. (re: the nerds who are always on their phones and do stuff with the internet). There was also barely a cell signal in there, which made tweeting and txt’ing near impossible.
Here’s another one of me.
Thanks to everyone there who let me take part in such a kewl an memorable night! #CokeZeroFansFirst
