Detroit Red Wings Prospect Drives To The Wrong Grand Rapids
I always trusted my GPS until I saw the episode of the office where Michael Scott and Dwight Schrute followed the GPS directions and drove right into a lake.
A GPS fail recently happened with Detroit Red Wings prospect Jonatan Berggren.
After being cut from the team at the end of training camp he was assigned to The Grand Rapids Griffins their AHL affiliate located in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Unfortunately for Berggren, he set his GPS for Grand Rapids - just not the one in Michigan.
Here's what Berggren had to say about the mix up.
She told me to enter the arena’s address on the GPS, but I could not find it. We only enter Grand Rapids so we can apply for it when we arrive, I said. It said Grand Rapids OH, and I had never heard it before. But wow, there’s probably only one Grand Rapids in the US, I thought. It was also two hours from Detroit, and they had told me it would take about that long.
So it felt damn nice when there were only 20 minutes left, but still odd in some way. I’ve read about Grand Rapids and it’s supposed to be pretty big. But this looks like a village, when will the city come !? Once we entered Grand Rapids we were met by farmers as well. We checked it out and there are only seven hundred people living in that small cave.
Thankfully Berggren and his girlfriend figured things out and made the 3-hour drive northwest to Grand Rapids, Michigan, and found the arena.
The Griffins kick off their season on October 15th at the Van Andel Arena vs the Rockford IceHogs.
Just to be safe maybe somebody can drive him to the game.
