Boy, after reading all those stories about going to the Winter Meetings, it sure sounded like an exciting thing to do.
But I, Ken Arneson, have come out of my blogging hibernation to give you this very important message: All those stories about the Winter Meetings ARE LIES!
The Winter Meetings are not exciting at all! Hanging around a hotel lobby for hours and hours waiting for some trade or other to happen is just about the most torturously boring thing you can possibly imagine. In fact, it’s so bad, it’s actually hazardous to your health!
I secretly recorded my whole experience on videotape. To prove my point, I put together a small excerpt. Be warned, it’s pretty gruesome. But if you must, watch the film and see for yourself. (Flash required, 1 MB). But don’t say I didn’t warn you.
If you were considering going to Dallas for next year’s Winter Meetings, think again! Stay home! Trust me on this.
