News flags - Captain Morgan, the pirate famous for hocking his rums and posing with one bent leg in the air, is real. Or he's real to the degree that there are a couple of people on the planet whose jobs are to dress as Captain Morgan and travel around promoting the brand. I got hired to follow him around during one of his jaunts around Columbus, and it was quite the adventure. The Captain and his crew of promoters drove around the city, stopping by at least half a dozen bars and a Bluejackets hockey game. Rum cocktails and giant captain head were tossed around to open hands and the Captain was mobbed by crowds of partiers attempting selfies. It was definitely a fun night, but I was definitely worn out afterward!
