OK. So, yesterday (Monday) I road-tripped down to the Smackdown-cast house show in Tucson. Small crowd, very intimate, the guys knocked themselves out, great fun.
Toward the end of the intermission, a bit of murmuring & pointing among some of the crowd over on my side. Along comes Jeff Hardy (yes, Jeff) walking along between the floor & lower level sections. Obligatory squealing girls -- he turns, smiles & waves appropriately. He comes back the other way a couple of minutes later. Talks to a few people. Heads back toward the dressing room area -- lingers around watching the Jamie Noble / Rey Mysterio match.
So I think to myself, "Self," I think, "that's odd. Well, maybe for some reason he's just not booked at the live Vegas Raw show. So he came to Tucson instead?!?!" Ooooh-kay.
I get home, watch the Raw show that I'd taped. And there's Jeff Hardy!!! WTF!?!
Now by my precise calculations, given the respective show start times, etc, it might be theoretically possible to finish the Vegas show, run to a waiting jet, & show up in Tucson by the intermission there. But ... not real likely.
Are there Jeff Hardy clones running around out in the world??? Too weird.
Here is a reprint of my highly acclaimed third slash opinion piece, hopefully in the correct forum this time (it was a draw between here and guest column feedback, so I chose here. Yay). Enjoy! /////// ... TIL IT'S RAW Hi.
