I Love Softball, but...

...I can't wait for my wife's league to be over so I can start attending the occassional MOB gathering at Keegan's. You know, meet some of the other Minnesota bloggers, play a little trivia - the usual. (And I'm not just saying that so they don't kick me out of the MOB until I've had a chance to get over to Keegan's and meet the guys in person.)

Being part Irish, Keegan's appeals to me as a meeting place.

Tonight, though, for those of you in the Cities is a special event for MOB'ers. (MOBsters? MOB-ites?) From the Elder himself:

"While we know that everyone is caught up with the horrible news coming out of London, we still wanted to take a moment and remind our local readers that there will be a fundraiser for Soldiers' Angels tonight at Keegan's Irish Pub in Minneapolis. Here are the details:

Where: Keegan's on Hennepin and University in Minneapolis

When: 8pm-???

What: All American Trivia Night and fundraiser for Soldiers' Angels. Reps from SA will be on hand to collect donations and a portion of the night's drink specials will go toward the cause.

Thanks for your support.

UPDATE: My wife caught this at the Soldiers' Angels web site:

Soldiers' Angels currently supports thousands of American Service Members stationed wherever we raise our Country's Flag and the number is growing daily. We also work tirelessly supporting our Wounded Soldiers, with transitional backpacks, personal visits, phone calls, etc. Additionally, we send our thanks via letters and email to the military of Great Britain, Poland and Australia who serve by our soldiers side in Iraq."

A wonderful cause. If you're in the area, stop by and show SA your support.
