Meeting MC Hammer

This week’s example of the power of blogging is the following story.

I was on my way out the door from a meeting in a cafe on University Avenue when the contact I had hot chocolate with noticed a friend at one of the tables. We strolled over and greeted the party. My friend introduced me to Geoff Arone, one of the co-founders of Flock. Geoff in turn motioned to his dining companion a dapper man in a three-piece suit, and asked if we already knew him.

Recognition flashed through my brain, and I extended my hand. “MC Hammer, I presume? I’m a big fan of your blog.” (I successfully resisted the temptation to add, “Please Hammer, don’t hurt me.”)

Yes, it was in fact the multi-platinum rapper turned minister and blogger.

I’ll leave it to you to speculate what MC Hammer was doing having coffee with a Bessemer EIR….

  1. It would have been awesome if he asked you or the time and you replied in your best MC Hammer impression, “Hammer Time! UhOh UhOh!!”
