Oh now I feel safer.....

I just talked to one of my friends who happens to run a comic book and gaming store here in town. He just returned from the 2006 GAMA Trade Show which took place March 13-16 at the Riviera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. He said he had a great time but was disturbed by something he saw at the Exhibiters Hall. While he was walking down the aisle he noticed several 'men in black' suits (his words not mine) talking to people and handing out their freebee. He stopped and took a little closer look at them because they were so out of place at the convention. Keep in mind this is a Gaming convention - where people who like to play card games or board games attend. Or really the people who run the stores who but they games to sell to others. These men in black were from the Department of Homeland Security. They were handing out GOLF TEES as a free giveaway. HUH? You know the little pieces of wood or plastic you set your golf ball on when you start a hole. He said almost everyone who they handed the tees to asked what they were! Maybe its because gamers wouldn't go outside in direct sunlight unless they had to. Talk about missing your target audience. Somehow it doesnt make me feel any safer.

Maybe there were microphones in the golf tees and the NSA wants to know what geeks talk about when they play golf.
