I don’t know if I will be able to go up to Everett this year to either watch games or cover them, but I would like to. My work schedule makes covering Saturday evening adn Sunday afternoon games far more plausible than it used to. I’m still undecided but would like to go to at least watch a game, if not pressbox it. For now, though, the AquaSox have released their promo schedule below. Root beer float night I may need to make a more earnest attempt to attend, though it will be happening the day after one of our monthly barbecues, and I’m not sure I can leave the house in whatever condition it might be in after that. Anyway, here you go!
