I’ve often said that I run into people at every event I go to – except baseball games. Well, that was a lie, it turns out. Saturday night I went to see the Bethesda Big Train, a team in a summer league for college students. Revels was performing, and they’d given us a bunch of free tickets. Before the game, I was waiting with some other Revels folks to sing the national anthem when I saw Alan Mairson standing a few feet away. Alan and I both left jobs at National Geographic in November, 2008. He now writes the blog Society Matters and is the bat boy/girl coordinator for the Big Train. Ok, and he also has a day job.
(I don’t really know everybody, but I like to pretend I do. Read about it.)
