Watch Felix’s Tacoma home debut with USSM!
If you’re reading this, you’re aware of the phenomenon that is King Felix Hernandez.
Currently, Felix’s first home start for Tacoma is scheduled for Monday, April 18. As you can see from this fine schedule, that game is slated to begin at 6:05 p.m.
We’re planning a USS Mariner meetup to eat, drink and make merry as we watch Felix (hopefully) mow down Fresno. Join us, won’t you?
As we all know, in this wild game called baseball, things can change as quickly as Chris Snelling can hurt himself. So please note that this date may change, too. Watch the ‘blog for updates in case our gathering is OTBE’d (OverTaken By Events). I think all of us would like to coordinate the meetup around Felix’s debut, so to the extent that’s possible, we’ll do it. Details inside …
But wait, as they say! There’s much more!
We will be gathering at Engine House 9 for dinner beforehand. We should be there by 4 p.m. For directions and such, here is Engine House 9’s website, with unfortunate embedded sound.
There is a fairly good chance that, after Derek is finished contributing to the Rainiers’ revenue stream via the beer vendor, we will return to said establishment for post-game merriment.
But wait! There’s even more!
Fine fellow and highly recommended Rainers broadcaster Mike Curto has agreed to hook us up right and proper. Mike will generously supply us with five pairs of tickets to distribute to USS Mariner readers.
How do you become one of the lucky five who will get two free ducats? Easy. You email me (jeffmshaw at this place called hotmail). We’ll put all the names we get before noon on Monday in a hat and do a random drawing. I’ll reply to the winners and place a note here when the fortunate fivesome has been selected. If you’re among them, you email me back with the name of the friend you’re bringing, and it’s on.
Now, aren’t you glad you read this until the end? And won’t you be still happier if, surrounded by your fellow fans, you get to see the M’s top prospect this month?
Hope to see you there.
