In Central Florida? Come see Tiger Woods, Derek Jeter and more

Click for a larger image On Tuesday, February 3rd, join me for the freeGillette – EA SPORTS Champions of Gaming powered by Xbox LIVE event’ at the University of Central Florida. Xbox.com has all the details, but here are the basics: 

What: Gillette – EA SPORTS Champions of Gaming powered by Xbox LIVE
Where: The UCF Arena (Here are directions)
When: Tuesday, February 3rd. 3:00pm-7:00pm
Who: Tiger Woods, Derek Jeter, Denny Hamlin and more*

I’ll be there throughout the event as the MC, meeting people and giving away a bunch of EA and Gillette prizes. Plus Geoff Keighley and his Spike TV crew will also be on hand grabbing footage for their February 18th show.  The event is open to the public, so if you are in the area and want to see a few sports stars, some great gaming and maybe grab some prizes. It is worth mentioning again that admission is free. See you Tuesday.

  • hied

    I would go if my schedule permitted. If you go by Winter Garden, feel free to stop by. :)

    Have you decided on a TV? If you get a Samsung make sure the optical audio out syncs up with the video. I’m having lip sync problems.

  • Kendoguk

    Yes post some codes

  • RICE md

    I used to live in Orlando.

  • Cohibaluvr

    Wow, no way. Two of my favorite athletes in one place. It gets no better than that….except I’m way up here in Michigan :-(

  • Kewl

    Derek Jeter ?? Never heard of him. Yet again another US-centric post from micronelsonsoft.com

  • Joergen8

    Well if Major did post something with Hamilton in it, the Yanks wouldnt know who he was. For some reason the first colored champion in the worlds most premium racing sport doesnt register in that country. Yet a bunch of yokels racing in a small circle with cars from the early 1970s is really important. ;)

    They dont know Schumacher but we’re supposed to know whoever the latest steroid pumping homerun record holder is. :(

    Any chance you’ll be doing a Meet and Eat as well while you’re in the area?

  • HunCity87

    haha…well said Joergen 8…

  • Quicksilver4648

    Hey, I live about an hour from UCF. However, I am up at my college, FSU, which is about 6 hours away. Darn, otherwise I would go.

  • KaiQom

  • Code to Joy

    Grrr.. you come to Orlando three weeks after I move away? You gotta come to DC sometime…


    Shame I don’t live in America. It’s going to be a nice evet.

  • Master Chief

    @ Joergen8: You make fun of guys racing “cars from the early 1970s”… right after you call someone “colored”. So what ancient decade does that make YOU from then? o_O

  • unbreakabIe

    Very cool. I am 2 and a half hours away, but I probably won’t get down there.

  • Anonymous

    Yo I decked out my avatar with a Germany shirt :) I love Germany. They are cool to like :) Also, cool event but I live in New Jersey :( We are getting the sh*ttiest weather ever. Florida sounds so nice right now. Good luck at the event Major

  • C9 JUKE

    Hey Major –

    Will there be a meet and eat? I just moved to the area and am considering coming.

  • Azwethinkweiz12

    Yay I live 20 mins away from the UCF arena!

  • Rich

    Hmmm, is anyone else getting a virus warning for http://www.majornelson.com/blog/blog.html

    It claims it’s a worm called HTML Script: Inf. I think Avast is spazzing out :(

  • Vasilii Zaytsev

    Come to Canada, you Americans.

  • BrarStar

    Oh man I wanna be there so bad, just way to far for me.

    I live about a hr and a half west. Might see if I can get off of work to come hang out. Sounds like it’ll be fun. Darn, I just got my vacation time at work and here I am using it all already, Oh well, definitely worth it!

  • StyxBoatman

    Oh! Darn it!!! Anything happening afterwards? For those of us who work ’til 5:00/6:00 and can’t make it out there on time??? :-( Don’t make me call in sick!

  • John Q Taxpayer

    I live in South Florida, but I’d rather see The Devil himself before going out of my way to visit Jeter. Go Sox, you Yankee dirtbags!

  • Warrengonline

    Gawd, I thought we were going to be at Tiburon Office? Awww… I might try to show up (I’d like to – Mon to Weds are my busy days as of late). I’ll have to get some of my sports friends together for that. This is the second opp to see Mr. Woods, will I make it this time? We’ll have to wait and see. IF so ‘SNK is the FUTURE’ ;)

  • freeleeday

    Sweet, I get out of class at 2:45 and am free til 6. Probably stopping by and woo go Knights!

  • Nick Marino

  • darkjester74

    I was getting similar warnings (I do not use Avast, I use AVG after dumping Norton System Works – waste of money for a home user) to other sites when I googled: Shane Mercado and Mozilla Firefox warned me after clicking a few link, so I googled my websites and it gave me the same warning and other websites. I right-clicked the link you posted and opened a new tab and it opened just fine, no warnings of any time.
