I’m not saying that the man in handcuffs is Minor Leaguer.

I’ve mentioned it in a couple of GameThreads, but I thought I’d put it in a post. The world famous Minor Leaguer is bringing his campaign to get Luke Maile voted onto All-Star to Calgary June 19th and we are going to have a meetup.

Actually Minor Leaguer is doing a whole Western Canada tour, knocking on doors and kissing babies trying to get out the vote for Maile.

The plan is to meet at Red Rock Bar. The address is 60 Crowfoot Crescent NW. I’ll admit I picked this place because it is walking distance from my house and because I’m slightly addicted to their dry ribs. The last few times we’ve had a meet up in Calgary I’ve picked places too far from my house and then haven’t been able to drink because I had to drive home. The way this season is going, I really need to drink.

They have several tv’s and the game will be on many of them.

The bar is a 5-10 minute walk from Crowfoot LRT station, if you want to take the train. Or you can bug me on twitter and I’ll pick you up at the station.

The game is a 5:00 Mountain time start, ML and I will be there about 4:45.

But....Tuesday’s are wing nights there, so I’m going to reserve a table or two. I’ll ask you to let me know, in this thread or by email if you are able to join us. I’ll will likely be buying chicken wings for the table.

ML will have Maile for All-Star buttons he will be passing out at the meetup. And he’ll be signing photos. Or you can get a selfie with him for the low price of a beer. Make that 2 beer, his agent will want one too.

The game is a 5:00 Mountain time start, ML and I will be there about 4:45. Join us if you can.
