On Wednesday afternoon, the male staff at my school took the ferry over to watch the Mariners. There is something of a bonding that takes place among males at a predominately female workplace like an elementary school. After a great meal at Fado Irish Pub, we watched the Mariners win a game against the Twins. Well, technically we didn't witness the win, because it was 9-9 at the top of the ninth when we had to catch the ferry. It was fun being out with 'the boys.' Thanks to Don, it was a free evening for me, as he treated me to dinner and the game, compliments of my birthday.
