Or as I would like to refer to it…men in tight pants, cold beers and footlong dogs.

$9.00

Originally I thought a suite would be a good idea, but we want to keep this somewhat affordable. And for EVERYONE including bloggers with Significant Others and Children. At a baseball game ALL ARE WELCOME! The more the merrier :)

Opening night is the 14th. Anyone game? I left a message with the BISONS requesting more information…and will let everyone know more when I do!

UPDATE: FRIDAY THE 14th is GOOD FRIDAY. Does this make a difference for anyone?

AND THE FRIDAY NIGHT BASH INCLUDES:
“The fridaynightbash!® series returns in 2006 with all the features that have made it a Western New York Tradition. Back is the pre game tent parties, highlighted by DJs or live music bands and food and drink specials. After the Bisons game, enjoy a spectacular post game fireworks show as the sky lights up with an awesome display of power and light.”

(Oh, and please spread the word! OF COURSE!)

Impromptu petition in comment section below! HELP WEIRD AL GET A STAR ON THE WALK OF FAME!

MAKE IT HAPPEN FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD IN THE WORLD!

Um, call me naive, but why are they asking for our MONEY to make this happen? I thought that the link was going to take me to a petition to sign.

Oh the things I learn!

Q: What needs to be done to get Al a star? Could you please explain the process?

A: The only way to get a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame is to be nominated and have your nomination accepted by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce review board. Only a handful of the hundreds of applications submitted each year are accepted, and sometimes it takes several years before a nomination is accepted. Not everyone who gets nominated eventually gets accepted, but we think Al’s accomplishments warrant a star and we’re ready for the long haul if need be.

The actual nomination process involves an extensive application and the compiling of a lot of material to be included with it. But don’t you worry about the tedious stuff —- we’re on it!

If the nomination is selected, it’s then up to us to put our money where our mouth is and sponsor the star. That’s where you come in. Your contributions are a very important part of this whole process!

Q: So how much do we need to raise?

A: It currently takes $15,000 to sponsor a Star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

AND LOOK AT ALL THE 27 MERCHANDISE AVAILABLE TO BUY!!!!

Does Baby A need one of these?

Chandler and Charlotte…sitting in a tree :)

TV stars Matthew Perry and Kristin Davis are Hollywood’s new ‘it’ couple, according to new reports.
The couple were spotted kissing while dining at Los Angeles restaurant La Dolce Vita recently, where they shared a ice-cream and looked like a couple in love. A fellow diner tells magazine Life & Style, “He kept his arm around her the entire time and kissed her forehead at one point.” Meanwhile, a friend of Sex And The City star Davis’ says, “She’s really fallen for Matthew.”

Think they are as cute as their characters? If so….awwwwwwwww. :)

THINK PINK!

There are SO MANY people in our office wearing PINK today, I almost thought I missed out on a Breast Cancer Awareness Clothing Day at work. No joke. I think at least 12 women I counted. And one man.

And thankfully, zero tiny yippy dogs.

That’s a lot of PINK! Think SPRING everyone! It’s a gorgeous GORGEOUS early spring day out there today!

Of course I wore navy blue and cream. D’oh!
