Missed the game

Discussion created by trans0816 on Apr 10, 2013

As a youth minister, one of my favorite activities each summer was taking a group to at least one Texas Rangers game.  One year, I had a youth intern working for me who wanted to learn how to plan events.  I assigned him the task of organizing and planning the outing to the game.  We settled on a date and I left him to the job.  He signed up a large group of students, arranged for the buses, got permission slips from parents......everything except purchase the tickets.  About a week before the game we discovered the mistake and I hastily cancelled the trip.  The game?  July 28, 2004....the night Kenny Rogers pitched a perfect game for the Rangers!  Almost 20 years later, I still give him grief over his miscue.
