Who Went To The Call of Duty: Black Ops Launch?

Metallica did. Bobby Kotick too. So did I and a ton of military dudes, all of who came out to play Call of Duty: Black Ops and... OK, they were really there to see Metallica. Did you go?

There wasn't much that was newsworthy at last night's Call of Duty: Black Ops launch party, outside of the million bucks the Call of Duty Endowment donated to veterans. But we already covered that. Sure, there was a giant novelty check—proof of that right here—but when I popped in and out, it seemed the draw was Metallica and a chance to play Black Ops a few days early.

And maybe Zach Braff.

What's the point of all this? An excuse to give you an off topic open thread disguised as one marginally on topic. So, enjoy some conversation in the comments while we celebrate our weekend and I look for my ...And Justice For All cassette.
