I don't want to ruin the joke, but since people on the internet seem to be sarcasm-challenged: Aaron is kidding. We are members of the mutual admiration society, fellow hockey goaltenders, and share an affinity for as much beer as we can find. No joke: we contributed to the drying up of the Guinness tap at the sportsbar across the street from the hotel in Phoenix.
I've done two shows with Aaron, and I've been lucky to sit next to him both times. He's what we call Good People™ and even though he totally fucked up the beard curve at the convention, I hope to see him again sooner than later.
