If you waited in line to meet LeBron James at Blaze Pizza in Culver City on Tuesday afternoon, you may have gone home very disappointed when James never actually showed up to the pizza party he teased himself earlier in the week. But, hey, at least you probably didn’t go home hungry?
Presumably, a lot of people in Los Angeles are now big fans of LeBron James, thanks to LeBron joining the Lakers in free agency this summer. Presumably, a lot of people in Los Angeles were already big fans of pizza, thanks to pizza being delicious as heck.
With that in mind, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that hordes of people showed up to Blaze Pizza locations around Los Angeles on Tuesday. For starters, each of the L.A. locations promised to give out free pizza during a three-hour afternoon window, and the only thing better than pizza is free pizza.
On top of that, LeBron broke his lengthy Twitter hiatus on Monday to tease a possible appearance at the Culver City location during that giveaway.
As a result, people flooded to Blaze locations around L.A. in hopes of coming across some free pizza and/or a face-to-face meeting with the Lakers’ new star. The lines were quite aggressive.
