I’ve heard of couples that meet in World of Warcraft, but what about a couple that chooses to celebrate their first wedding anniversary at BlizzCon?
Meet the Mathews who traveled from Lawton, Okla. for the 2-day show.
Ashley, 22, shrieked during the exclusive “World of Warcraft: Cataclysm” trailer during the keynote speech. She’s really into WoW. No wonder she hunted down BlizzCon tickets on eBay and paid $200 each. It was a surprise for husband Steve on their first anniversary (awww…)
Their friends don’t think they’re strange. They play WoW too.
“We try to stay close to friends who play,” Mathews said.
We’ve just posted our BlizzCon story that will be in tomorrow’s paper. Take a peek yourself and see the latest photo slide show, shot by a professional photographer not by us bloggers with crappy point and shoots.
Know those fancy goody bags Blizzard is giving out? We can’t keep ours so we’re going to give them away to readers. Leave a comment on any of our BlizzCon 2009 posts and when it’s all over, we’ll put all the names in a digital hat and pick some winners. Good luck!
