Ladies’ Night—Not Just For The Gals

For all of you that haven’t been inundated with Chris’ “SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY! …we’ll sell you the whole seat, but you’ll only need THE EDGE”—tweets about the first Ladies’ Night Break on Saturday, January 17th, you may have been offline for the last month!

I’m super excited to be the ring-leader for my first live-break, and am going to do my best to ensure that it doesn’t turn into a clown show. Because if there are two things I hate, it’s disorganization and clowns.

This break is being held in celebration of all of the amazing women and girls in the hobby. Don’t worry, men. You’re allowed in, too! We just hope you’ll include your girlfriends, wives, daughters and nieces! Going stag is just fine and dandy, too!

Chris asked me to choose the benefitting charity for this break and I happily chose the V-Day foundation. A major part of their mission statement is as follows (from their website):

“By raising money and consciousness, it will unify and strengthen existing anti-violence efforts, triggering far-reaching awareness, it will lay the groundwork for new educational, protective, and legislative endeavors throughout the world.”

I believe this cause is one that we can, and should, get behind!

Throughout the course of the night, I’ll be doing random drawings for prizes! The prizes will come from the V-Day website. You need not be present to win – you’ll just have an extra surprise coming your way!

If you’re looking for a play-along drinking game (it’s on a Saturday, after all), you can bet your Ty Cobb rookie that I’ll do the following:

  • Mangle the ever-loving crap out of, at least, 100 players’ names
  • Ask Chris for help and then immediately tell him to back-off like a petulant 4th grader
  • Accidentally disconnect from the live-stream
  • In Crackin’ Wax tradition, incorrectly predict “Ohhh, I think we have a hit here!” when it is, in fact, a decoy
  • Say, “Is this something special?” when I pull anything that looks remotely shiny
  • Start to swear and then remember this is to be PG and artfully turn it into a non-swear, a la SHHhhugar-Plum-Fairy
  • Thanks again for your continued support of Crackin’ Wax’s charity-breaks; we’ll keep doing them as long as you’ll keep participating in the fun. We still have some good spots left, so please spread the word—let’s get this filled!

    See you on the 17th! Whoop whoop!

      This should help with the pronunciation…

      And, I might be grabbing a THIRD team tomorrow or the day after…gotta check in with my younger brother and his girlfriend in Colorado. He’s a die-hard Astros fan, and his birthday’s in March. Might make a good 30th birthday present.
