My dad (Prof’s Pop) is a graduate of the Naval Academy (Class of ’68). He passed along this note for any other Navy alum in the Bay Area…

NAVY ALUMNI: Join us FRIDAY evening MAY 14th VS Seattle Mariners. Last year we witnessed the largest comeback in Rays history vs the Cleveland Indians. Need minimum of forty (40) attendees to get the group rate ($40 last yr).

Don Coughlin action guy – please email him ( if you plan to attend. Need early probable head count before we commit to forty. Not binding as we know plans change.

And of course, if any Marines want to go and need a ride, we’re sure the Navy guys would be happy to help.

    Beat Army! We'll have to catch the Rays on the other end up here in the Pacific Northwest. I'm a Marine, USNA'90, and Rays fan. My wife (USN) was at MacDill for a few years, and now we're at Naval Station Everett, north of Seattle. Still following the blog; keep up the good work!

    I read this site everyday and am graduating USNA in May. I will seriously consider going to this because I should be home on leave at the time.
