NBA CHAMPS AT THE SCHOTT IN A PRE-SEASON GAME V. THE WIZARDS ON 10/18! CHECK OUT THE ARENA GUY’S EXCLUSIVE LOOK AT HIS PERMANENT OSU LOCKER!
LeBron James has always been clear that if he hadn’t gone straight from high school to the pros, he would have been a Buckeye! To honor his love for the Ohio State University, a permanent locker in the Men’s Basketball locker room was named just for King James. The Arena Guy got to see the locker up close and talked to Dave Egelhoff, the Director of Operations for OSU Men’s Basketball, to get the inside scoop on what LeBron and this locker means to the OSU Men’s Basketball program and for recruiting. Check out the video below.

TRULY THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH!
The always entertaining Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus wowed families with their all-new production “Out of This World” October 14 -16 at the Schottenstein Center! The Arena Guy had a blast ‘clowning around” at the show. One highlight was Ringling Bros. clown Professor Renzo who TRIED to teach The Arena Guy how to juggle. Professor Renzo said young children could easily do it. Could the Arena Guy? Well, watch this video to find out.
So impressed by Professor Renzo’s clown makeup, The Arena Guy decided he should become a clown to and got his face painted too. What wasn’t captured on video were the little kids in line who pointed at him and laughed! One said, “Mommy, look at that old person get painted!” Oh well..Check out the video of The Arena Guy being one of the first people ever to get his face painted by this artist!
Most of all, the Arena Guy had fun just ‘clowning around!’ Check out the video!
Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus was such fun!!!! The whole experience turned The Arena Guy into a kid again! For those who may have missed it this year, make sure to make plans to attend next year with your family! It is surely ‘The Greatest Show on Earth!”
