Hey gang –
My usual post is one that links to a particularily funny or obscure video. I do this because it is my defense mechanism to make particularily funny or obscure comments or actions when I feel intimidated by the intellectual superiority of those around me. Because I spent a lot of time in college hanging out with the likes of Chad, Michael Lee, and Aly, I also spent many a nights participating in dialogues that went something like this:
Mike (sipping his Tequila): The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never made up their minds to be either good or evil.
Aly (delicately puffing on a clove cigarette): Although the world is full of suffering, it is full of the overcoming of it.
Matt (making armpit farts): So this blonde walks into a library…
…and so on ad nauseum. So I sit in the sidelines here at the Roadhouse and show my face only to post on the funny and obscure.
This is not one of those posts.
I have the pleasure of working with a guy named Ruben. He’s a great guy with a great heart. One of his closest friends, Manny Bernal, recently passed away due to complications from cancer. Manny’s sister and Ruben have put together a fund in Manny’s honor that awards a scholarship to a designated senior on Manny’s former high school baseball team.
Ruben has purchased a bunch of seats to Sunday’s Dodgers/Reds game and is selling them to raise money for the scholarship fund. If you’re gonna be in Los Angeles and want to hit the game, or if you just feel like you want to help out the fund with a little cash, check out the flyer and give Ruben a call.
Thanks guys. I promise I’ll post some funny stuff on Friday.
