I agree and I hope you were not offended by the comment I made. I kept wishing her mother would have stopped her on the first line and told her to start again. I think she had alot of guts to keep going.

I'd love to go. There was something about a "group box" in the magazine they gave us last night but I threw it out. I think we would have a blast!!!

Doorway, I take absolutely NO offense to your comment.

In fact, I didn't appreciate the way the other poster replied to your comment, but I see that you addressed it.

Moving along now. Nothing more to see here.

I just sent in an inquiry through the Checkers website about the group rate. They have them but there were a few other things I wanted to know. Once I get that information back we can start gauging interest in one of the Saturday games. If we get enough of us, and I think we can, we can possibly start looking at getting the rate for one of those games. It doesn't have to be right away but at least we'd all have something to toss around.

Plus you'd all get to spend the evening with yours truly (that better not have been a collective groan I just heard...).

Can't even blame the brew. I had none and didn't see anything in UNCGDad's hand. He's a nice guy. Too bad you missed him!!

I was there (thanks to OP for the code!) and I just couldn't stand someone saying the poor girl stunk. To make a joke in reference to something completely different like you did really wasn't offensive imo. I laughed at the guy trying to tear open the box, it actually enticed me to pick up a box and truth be told that sucker was sealed pretty good.

But being the father of a 9 year old girl I found it in bad taste when someone else said "she stunk". All parents know that kids make mistakes, this poor girl just had a hard time if front of probably the biggest venue of her life.

Just my 2 cents anyway...
