good friends

My friend Jamie was in town for the STP (Seattle to Portland bike ride) and I met him and some of his friends out for a few games of pool. First off, I need to start out by saying that this man is the kind of friend that will drop what he is doing and help you out under any circumstance. He is such a good friend. He bought me a University of Delaware shirt the minute I found out I was moving back east. He also helped me move out of my Alki apartment and move into my Corvallis apartment. Yep. I had my first Corvallis meal at the Fox and the Firkin with Jamie, where he pointed out that Mike Reilly had just walked past our table after doing the live football radio show inside the restaurant. He is a jem and I am thankful to have him as a friend.
His friends Jared and Mike were also down for the event and we had food and drink before playing several games of pool. Pool is a favorite pastime for Jamie and myself. We used to meet at Jillian's in Tacoma back in the day.

It was a great night and the goal is to hopefully join them in the STP madness next year. That's 200 miles in two days. I better start training soon!

Hey, you forgot to mention that I caught Mike Reilly checking you out! Ha ha. That still cracks me up when I think about it!
