    Hey PatsFans,

    I know there was a request for some photos from our charity fundraiser with Benjamin Watson, so here you go! Happy to oblige as always! The event was a lot of fun, Benjamin is a fantastic person. I was glad to be able to help get the word out about his charitable foundation "One More" (One More) and raise some proceeds for Benjamin and his wife Kirsten to continue the good work they are doing through One More. So here are the photos!




    Here's a shot of Benjamin signing an autograph for my little sister Ali:

    Here's a shot of the scene at Boston Billiards. Check out the red, white and blue balloons! That was a feature of our "balloon pop benefit" - pop a balloon and win a prize!

    Here a group of collectors survey the goods after having Benjamin sign their items!

    Here are the items we were offering for Benjamin to sign:

    Here's my lovely wife Jenn working our merchandise table - we had a wide variety of autographed items to offer:

    I know I'm going to get ragged on for this statement by someone who has a stick shoved way too far up their wazoo but...
