I downloaded the videos from pointbuzz and watched them on opening day of Skyhawk. I am almost sure at the very end of one of the videos I saw Paul Rueben getting on the ride. Was he there and is the best swing ride ever?
Well, he attended alot of coaster events, and often was the person the media interviewed. Why, I don't know... Maybe he was president of ACE or something.
He really made a name for himself in the coaster-nerd community by declaring Dragster the his favorite coaster (or maybe the wording was The World's Best Coaster) before it even opened. So now, he's an easy target for jokes, apparently.
What part of my posts indicates that I'm being pissy, that I need to "chill out," that I'm "jumping" on someone, etc.? My first post was a little smart-assy, but I tried to be as chill as possible in the second one.
I guess chill doesn't come across in internet forums...
Which brings me to another point, why *is* P-Diddy the subject of such vitriol? Yes, he often says that many rides are "best" or "his favorite", but why not just take that at face value? I remember someone on these, or other forums stating that their favorite coaster is whichever one they happen to be on at the time. That's fair.
And honestly, my opinion has changed several times over the years, most often when I get to ride a new ride. Heck, even *without* getting on something new, if you asked me what was my favorite coaster you'd likely get the response of The Legend, Lightining Racer, Raging Bull, or even Phantom's Revenge depending on what day you asked me. I dont think that a flip-floppy opinion is enough to make the man so ill-regarded.
Now if he makes a pompous-diva-like ass of himself off camera, that would be a completely different story...
