    Default I beat Greg Oden at Guitar Hero

    On Thursday, my girlfriend and I went to a Blazer game and got tickets to Cricket Wireless's O-Fon (phone) launch party, hosted by Greg Oden. It was way more than I expected. Oden came in and was really chill. People got all the autographs they wanted, and it all came without pushing and shoving. It was more of a take turns. I got an autograph on my Oden jersey (now hanging proudly on my wall), got to shake his hand, talk to him a little bit, and get some pictures with him. They had karaoke and my girlfriend has a great singing voice, so she sang Whitney Houston's "I will always love you" and dedicated it to Greg. Really worked in her favor because he started singing along a little bit, and then gave her a hug after she finished. That was the highlight for her. For me, it was getting to play guitar hero with him. He only played 2 songs, and the second I got to play with him. He asked "Do you want to play on hard?" I said "sure," but didn't come across as too confident since I haven't played in several months. I think he took that comment as 'I have no idea what I am doing'. I was joking with the guys behind me saying that I was pretty good but out of practice, but I don't think Greg heard me, because after I beat him, he said, "You cheated, you didn't tell me you were that good." He was acting upset, and I honestly couldn't tell if he was joking or not. I told him that I usually play co-op mode, so I wasn't even thinking of it as a competition, to which he responded, "Yeah, whatever." Anyway, on to my picture proof (unfortunately off a cell phone). Oh, and Greg took stood in front of a green screen where they made it look like he was standing next to himself licking his own clone.

    That's awesome man. Oden looks like a real chill guy. Did he say when he'll be back on the court?

    Yeah, I intentionally didn't post pics of her. I don't think she'd be happy with me spreading pics of her on the net.

    Mamba - What would you suggest? I see my hair is laying weird in the first 2 pics, but if you mean beyond that, I've always believe my hair looks better longer than shorter. In my opinion, I pull off longer hair better, but I can't do that because I do therapy with clients and have to keep my hair more professional.

    Yeah, I know. It throws off some clients too. I'm 24 and in my 2nd year working towards my doctorate. Usually I have facial hair, which makes me look more like 21, but I shaved it off for a Halloween costume party, and I'm getting professional pictures taken with my girlfriend tomorrow, so I kept it clean shaved rather than halfway grown in for the photos.

    Can't grow a full beard, but I'll grow back my goatee after tomorrow. The spiked look really really looks bad on me, and no matter what I do with my hair I always look young. The goatee will add a few years, but I'm stickin with the hair as it is for a while. I'll probably change it in a few months. I usually do, but I usually regret not keeping it at least at the length it currently is. Thanks for the advise though
