What to expect for JoeCon 2011 Coverage

So…for one of the very few years since 2003 I will not be a JoeCon in Orlando this year.  The primary reason for this was initially because I was traveling out of town for work next week, but now as it turns out, my daughter Allison will be having surgery on Friday.  This was initially scheduled for February, but various reschedulings have taken place, and now she’s slotted in for a Friday appointment.

The procedure would be minor in most cases, but on an 18 month old, it is not quite so minor, and so, for obvious reasons, that is where my main focus will be for Friday and for a chunk of the weekend.  If I have the opportunity, I will certainly provide coverage and insight, and will most likely do some evening recaps, but I just wanted to let folks know ahead of time what was up.

I am extremely fired up to see what Hasbro has to offer, and I’m just as excited to bring coverage to my readers as I ever have been, but real life may intercede this weekend, and I appreciate everyone realizing this, and understanding that any lack of at-the-second coverage this weekend is not a result of any personal opinions with the brand.

Even if those bastards did kill G.I. Joe: Renegades.  :shifty:

  1. I totally understand. Family (especially your kids) comes first. I’ll keep her & you in my prayers.

  2. I echo Majik4007. Wish I could go, too. Maybe next year. Best wishes to you and yours in anticipation of the surgery.

  3. Best wishes to your daughter, yourself and the rest of your family. It’s always good to see a geek with his priorities firmly intact. If I were you I wouldn’t worry about “con coverage” at all; there’re a plethora of other “news” outlets to soothe the savage geek and anyone who expects coverage from you, or gives you grief over it, is a turd with a seriously dicked up perspective.

  4. All the best to you, your family and especially your daughter Justin. Don’t sweat it. Giving us the news that everything went well for her would top ANY news we may get out of JoeCon.

  5. Your daughter will be in my thoughts and prayers on Friday. I’ll be here for the coverage whenever you have the opportunity to post it! Good luck!

  6. Crimey. No worries at all. A little someone needs her own hero that weekend. Hope all goes well.

  7. I’ll do exactly the same thing even if this is the only G.I. Joe convention I’ll have a chance to go to. God bless you and your family, my family will pray for your baby.

  8. All the best to your Daughter and to your family. We are all holding thumbs for you man.

  9. I pray that all goes well with your daughter Justin. God bless you and your loved ones and thanks for all the info you provide for the collectors Yo Joe!!!
