McTavish and Mediate supporting Chartity: Operation Second Chance

McTavish and FredWe saw the last minute email sent at midnight trying to get people to come out to Cleveland Park for a charity event called "Operation Second Chance." The charity benefits military service members and their families that have been injured and are now located at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Although I was in desperate need of catching up on photo-processing (as you can tell by the tardiness of my posting), I decided I couldn't miss the opportunity to go out and support the troops. Well, that and the fact that I have a soccer crush on McTavish :0) There is this guy with a Scottish accent that sits behind me during the games. His famous phrase now, is "Give to McTavish!" said every so Scottish-ly since McTavish's is one of the team's leading scorers. I had a great time getting meet the folks from Operation Second Chance as well as McTavish and Mediate. I was also surprised to learn that McTavish had a little interest in photography too. Maybe in the off season he can get some free time to come out and shoot with Sean and I :0) As for Dom, I had no idea he was from TX. Moreover, his brother is graduating from Baylor University on May 17th just like I am. Since I have the opportunity to go to graduation and Dom doesn't, I'm going to have to see if I can bring him back something cool from BU. We'll see how long the lines are at the bookstore :0) To wrap things up, despite the small turn out, Operation Second Chance had huge success with the fund raiser - totaling near $1000 to support the troops. Yet again Screaming Eagles prove that we do way to much charity work. Isn't that right Paul? Good job guys.
