Kesler a native of the Detroit area (born in Livonia, Michigan a suburb of Detroit) was joined by Jack Johnson and Marty Turco (both whom played for the University of Michigan) at the Best Buy in Westland, on Tuesday and was solo on Wednesday making stops in Commerce Township and in Farmington Hills.

They had three stations where you could play the games on the Wii; however, the biggest attraction was to meet Ryan Kesler.
