Seattle, WA - Soccer fan Bill Warden's attempt to set up a Stoke City FC watch party, this past weekend, was ruined as local skaters misinterpreted his online posting for a Stoke event and showed up to partake in the sweet street session that Warden was supposedly setting up.
"I saw Stoke trending on Twitter in Seattle two weekends ago and got all excited about it," stated Warden to The Nutmeg News. "I put out a Craigslist post saying 'hey, come down to The Atlantic Crossing to catch some Stoke this Saturday,' but all that happened was a couple of hungover crusty skaters showed up and drank a couple beers at 7am."
Our reporters spoke to skater Zach "Meat" Boggs about the mixup, "He told me, 'Lets get a beer and watch some Stoke.' I assumed he meant we were going to have a session over at Roosevelt High School on the sly, but instead we ended up at some random English bar with a bunch of weird people in foreign scarves watching a soccer game. He doesn't even know how to do a 50/50 on a handrail. What a fucking poser."
Warden stated that this wasn't the first time for such mistakes as he stated, "The worst was a few years back when I saw an add for an event stating that 'Stoke will be at full intensity' and blew $75 by going to the Tony Hawk Boom Boom Huck Jam competition in Tacoma."
Regardless of the screwup, Boggs, Warden, and the rest of the 206 Skate Brigade reportedly continued to drink beer until the situation made sense and Warden broke his finger attempting to learn how to skate at the age of 39.
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Warden continues to advertise his Stoke sessions.
