Default Last Friday I met Jay Triano & he was smashed!

It took me a while figure out if I wanted to let everyone here know how much of a regular guy Jay is

I was at Real Sports Bar in the players lounge in the middle of the bar & grill (did u know that there are 2 booth tables there with there own tap?), because my co-workers & I were celebrating the post launch of the Sportsnet rebrand, FX Canada, The Barker channel & the new CityNews channel...Jay turned up at around 105-1030, I was already buzzed LOL, then I saw Jay & I almost pushed my self past one of my co-workers I saids what's up Jay I told him grabbing his shoulders (man he is so much taller then on TV I thought to myself) he said how's it going man are your here with Sportsnet? I was like yah! & guess what I did man! Guess what I did! Jay says what did you do? I said I'm the creater & designer of the old Jack Armstrong Hello T-shirt! He was like wow man that shirt was awsome & then he said hello! & with a drunk slurr I said I did some design work for Chris Bosh & guess what? he didn't pay me for it! He said, go figure Bosh was like that, & he chuckled. I then left & went to the washroom, thinking like a fan did I come on to forward in my drunkenness?
So I decided to go back & say that I hope I wasn't to forward Jay I'm pretty buzzed man & Jay said no worrie brother I've been drinking since 5pm Lol, I was like wow I thought I was makin a fool of my self! Jay was like nah were drunk like crazy (he was with one of the Raps player person reps he looked like he was 6'5" I didn't catch his name he's at all the raps practices & events...)
Well anyways we left real sports the headed to 11 the bar around the corner & guess what Jay & his boy ended up there about 20 minutes after, then in his drunken chill out state, he said hello to my self & the rest of my co-workers, shaking hands with some of them...
I thought to my self wow Jay is just like he is on TV calm cool & chill even when he is drunk as fuck! LoL! It was good times.

Get me a job at Sportsnet. I'm a high school senior that has no prior experience in the media. I have no special talent besides video games and drawing. I'm overweight and unpleasant to look at. But I promise you, I know more about sports than any of the goons on Sportsnet.

I ran into Jay at a bar after a game and he was very friendly. He joined us and really talked to us. Really just a great guy. Might have been his undoing as a coach.
