I was attending the grand opening of Geek Squad City, the mothership service center for Best Buy's Geek Squad computer support service. The event was huge, involving hundreds of geeks, a dozen VW Beetles, and a helicopter with stuntmen, dressed in Geek Squad uniforms, rappelling down from a Geek Squad helicopter. It was very surreal. The spokesperson for Geek Squad is the tech-nerdy(?) Fabio Lanzoni. Here, Fabio poses with my tailgunner (keeps my gear from being stolen, recognizes photo ops), Patti. I have to say that I expected Fabio to be kind of an uptight individual, but he turns out to be a very cool dude who is very funny. He even signed my media pass.
