Earlier today, I woke up bright and early to attend a TURBO Movie Snail Race. It was actually a “TURBO 500” Today Show event on the Rockefeller Center Plaza. Afterwards we attended a roundtable with Ryan Reynolds, the voice of Turbo in the movie before meeting up with my family to see an advanced screening of TURBO. I will write more about that in a later post.
Have I ever mentioned that I’m not really a “morning person”. When I left my home around 6am, the doorman joked, “What is this? I never see you leaving this early in the morning.” “I know,” I responded with a smile. It was worth the early morning though, because the “Turbo” filled day was a blast. Chatting with my fellow blogging friends (including Davina, Kerrie, Mitch and Onica); interviewing Ryan Reynolds (who is quite funny) and seeing how much “my guys” enjoyed the movie combined to make a special day!
At the TODAY plaza, Ryan Reynolds along with TODAY’s Matt, Savannah, Natalie and Willie competed in a race between snails…somewhat. Actually, they played skee ball to move their snails up the side of Studio 1A. Since I was at the event as a part of a press outing for the movie, I was definitely Team TurboRyan. Did he win?
