Happy Friday the 13th with a full moon in the sky! I'm glad that it's January and not October, right?
Our son is at the 3rd annual golf and poker tournament for the Major League Baseball Players Association Players Trust at the MGM Grand Hotel of Las Vegas. The tables were full of players from the past and present, the cause was righteous, and the end result was a lot of fun. The poker tournament took place the night before the annual golf tournament for the Players Trust, a charitable wing of the union that was established in 1996 and gives back to communities with programs such as Buses for Baseball, which brings underprivileged children to MLB stadiums, Action Teams that work with high schoolers to volunteer in their communities, and global international disaster relief.
He won 1st place in the Poker Competion! We knew he has many qualities and abilities but we are not so sure about this one. We are soooo happy that it was for charity! Hopefully he doesn't feel the need to change his name to something like Slick or Ace or Florida Slim.
