Topic 2 of this episode of the GameOverGreggy Show was brought to the table by special guest Matty Kerr, who asked the guys who they would want to meet/hang out/have dinner with. Matty really wanted to meet the Kinda Funny guys so he made it happen by supporting them on Patreon and flying out to San Francisco.
Like Matty, I would love to meet Greg, Colin, Nick, Tim (and I guess Kevin). I have watched/listened to hundreds of hours of content that these guys produce, and I feel like I’ve gotten to know them—in a weird way they have become a part of my life. It would be awesome to get to meet them in person, and I think it’s pretty cool that one day it could actually happen.
Aside from the Kinda Funny crew, here are some other people I would love to have dinner with:
As Greg said on the show, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is awesome—he is the living definition of that word. He’s such an inspiration to me, and I would love to talk to him for a bit and find out exactly how he does all that he does.
I met Drew Brees briefly at an event a couple years ago—he was the keynote speaker of an annual dinner held here in Winnipeg. I got to shake his hand and take a picture with him, but there wasn’t any time to chat. He’s a future hall of fame quarterback and a hero of mine, so it would be great to spend an evening talking football with him.
The Tragically Hip are one of my favourite bands and I would love to pick the brain of lead singer Gord Downie. It would be so cool to talk to him about his process and certain songs. I would also like to find out what the early years were like for him and the rest of the band.
I’m a big fan of Zach Braff’s work, particularly Garden State and Scrubs, and I would love to talk to Zach about projects he has for the future. I would also talk to Zach about music as it seems we have some similar tastes.
So that’s my short list of people I would want to have dinner with. Let me know in the comments who you would choose to have dinner with if you had the opportunity.
