Just when I thought my head might explode after a day full of great ideas, theories, debates and conversations with smart people, my colleague Michelle brought me the world's largest mojito and things went.. well somewhere from there. First it was out to a great Lebanese dinner where we debated the end to accounting as we know it.
Then a great group of rowdy PR folks stumbled by and we were suddenly swept away into the Great Table Hockey Game tournament. For the uninitiated, this game consists of two normally intelligent people trying to get a cork across a table between two limes. I'm not making this up.
I'm pleased to say that in this particular version of Miracle over Ice with a chaser on the side -- the Canadians were soundly defeated. It was a brutal game, but I believe the blood on the floor (well maybe it was red wine) came in a spat about the relative value of the "Return on Kisses" metric vs. Ad Value Equivalency.
John Gilfeather took the semi-finals over Canadian Fraser Likely, but lost in the finals to the home team -- IPR's Michelle Hinson 10 to 4.
The best "where is my camera" moment came when Dan -- the guy who runs the bar -- brought out a REAL hockey stick and Fraser proved that he was at least as good a hockey player as he is a researcher. The correlations between the amount of alcohol consumed and number of goals scored are being processed as we speak but we do know that the margin of error is at least 100%.
