Not a bad morning view to wake up to on Day 2. Where yesterday was all about Travel & Transit, day 2 had a completely different vibe. All of our focus was on getting ready for our Oake on the Water broadcast with Eric Hutchinson and to be honest, things were a bit frenzied. Coordinating the delivery of the production gear, talent, staff and guests is no small feat when combined with the lack of cell service or texting...did we forget to mention that? Not an international calling plan among us!
By early afternoon, Oake on the Water was in full swing from the open-air conference room at the Iberostar. Ocean behind us, a room full of friends from Minnesota in front of us and Eric Hutchinson beside us...things don't get much better.
After we wrapped up air with Eric things got awesome but also a little weird...let's start with the awesome: Eric and Elliott began taking requests and played for another half-hour just for our guests. That set even included an impromptu cover of The Champ's classic 'Tequila'...it was stellar. Even though the heat & sun was intense and he was decked out in a suit coat and dress pants, Eric & Elliott hung out for another hour or so just chatting with our guests and snapping photos.
The weird? Well, this happened:
Perhaps eHutch was inspired by the strength and machismo that oake exuded while masked or he was trying to disburse the embarrassment a bit in an act of bro-solidarity...whatever the case may be, Eric Hutchinson also ended up in the mask:
I believe he was muttering under his breath, "I regret this already." Keep an eye on TMZ.com as I'm sure more photos will be surfacing and Eric Hutchinson in a Luchadore mask is obviously breaking news.
