Regarding the Rehearsal Dinner

Dear Northwest League scheduler:

If you happen to stumble across this blog, I would like to bend your ear for a moment.

Baseball has played an important part in Sweetie's and my relationship. Not only are we both fans of the sport, but it could be reasonably argued that were it not for the sport of baseball we would not be together now, and therefore not planning this joyeous wedding. Therefore, it is important to us to work baseball into our wedding festivities.

However, we are not the sort of people who want a baseball-centric wedding. The engagement was a perfect reflection of this: Sweetie had known from the moment we started dating that a baseball game proposal was grounds for immediate break-up. However, we did attend a baseball game earlier that day. (A Northwest League game at that!)

We have decided the perfect way for us to work baseball into the wedding celebration is to have the rehersal dinner at a baseball game. Specifically, we would like to do it at an Everett AquaSox baseball game. So, if you could arrange for them to play at home on Friday, July 29, 2005 we would be ever so appreciative.

Having worked for a Northwest League team in the past, I can empathize with the difficulty you must face in scheduling the season. However, if you are feeling generous you would have them playing the Tri-City Dust Devils. And it would be really supercalafragalisticexpealadocious if the Dust Devils mascot were to make an appearance. I know you have no control over that, but a girl can dream.

Thanks for listening to my request,

Did you really send them this letter?

And, if so, you obviously have time to start making arangements for my wedding.

I have not actually sent a letter. But I know of at least one reader who has connections, so it's not unfeasible that they might actually see it.

The Tri-Cities have the hydro races that weekend, which means the Dust Devils are likely going to ask to be out of town, which would mean a better than 50% chance Everett will be at home.

Scheduling the season is difficult enough with 10 teams with scheduling issues, I'm not going to add my letter to the official mix.

Doesn't the Northwest League have 8 teams, not 10?

Of course it does! Which makes scheduling even more difficult, but pushes the odds a little more closely in our favor that the AquaSox will be home on July 30.

When I said 10 teams I meant 10 cities. Because it's the Tri-City Dust Devils, so you have to add another two. And let's not go down the road that there are four tri-cities, because that's just wrong.
