    Red Sox. Yankees. Beer. A Good Cause. Doesn't Get Much Better Than That!
    Well, as you can see under the "Organizations I Care About" Links, one of the causes I am tied to is the National Down Syndrome Society. And tomorrow, I get to combine that, with a Red Sox v. Yankees game and my favorite bar. Can't get much better than that now can it.

    For those of you who don't know about the organization, NDSS is committed to being the national leader in supporting and enhancing the quality of life and realizing the potential of all people with Down syndrome through education, research, and advocacy initiatives.

    So here's how you can help. Show up at the bar. Drink beer. Watch the Red Sox Game. Buy some raffle tickets. I know, I know, it's a tall order. Here are the details:

    WHEN: Friday, August 18th. We are building the fundraiser around the 8:05 RED SOX v. YANKEES game, but I would get there early, Prof. Thom's always gets packed for these games. Oh wait, I haven’t told you where yet …

    WHERE: Professor Thom's. Located on 2nd Avenue, between 13th and 14th Streets

    WHY: Because you were going to watch the Sox game anyway. Because you were going to be drinking that night anyway. Because you want to win one of the many great raffle prizes we'll be having. Because you support individuals with Down syndrome (hmmm, maybe I should have put that first). Because you support ME damnit!

    Anyway, it's sure to be a GREAT time, so I look forward to seeing some of you there.

      Hey, is there any way for me to buy a raffle ticket if I can't come?

      I would go, except there are 2 little things preventing me.

      1. The bar is just a wee tad out of my neighborhood.

      2. I'll be at the game. Woo-hoo!

      Don't be too jealous now. :)

      Great cause:

      As I may say about the doubleheader;

      "Pukebarf"!

      I was supposed to be at that game :(

      But, instead, I went to the Iowa State Fair and had Snickers on a Stick.

      Not as great as the Sox and Yankees, but a damn great time, nonetheless.

      Hopefully at least something good came out of this abomination of a weekend. How was the NDSS aspect of the night?

      I even got Jenny to try and show up at this thing friday night when she posted on the board wondering where she could go to watch the game.
