One of those tenuously connected duties is this: I put up the scores for a golf league for senior citizens. As a result, I'm on their mailing list.
So this morning, I opened my e-mail to find a letter from the President of the league. I was expecting the latest set of scores. Instead, I find a collection of notes and announcements. Heading the list is this:
Big mystery that needs to be solved. At the awards banquet, somebody won tickets to a regular season Stars hockey game. The problem is that nobody remembers who it was. [Name Omitted] won the pre-season tickets but we don’t know who won the regular season tickets. If you were the winner, or know who it was, please tell [Name] or [Other Name] at [e-mail] or call him at [phone number].
This probably shouldn't be quite so funny to me.
