If you like hugs and if you like Nick Cannon, you probably need to go Citi Field this Friday for the Mets-Brewers game:
The New York Mets today announced they are teaming up with Nick Cannon, host of 92.3 NOW’s Morning Show, to “Hug It Out” and help Cannon break the Guinness World Record for most hugs in one hour this Friday, August 19 at Citi Field. Cannon, who is also the host of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” is planning to hug more than 1,800 people to break the existing record of hugs given out in an hour.
Just remember: you’re not just hugging Nick Cannon. You’re hugging everyone he’s ever hugged. Everyone.
And of course, the question is whether or not the Mets can get 1,800 people to come to Citi Field in the first place.
