Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Yesterday we witnessed an amazing moment in Detroit sports. Armando Galarraga pitched his heart out. Jim Joyce blew a historic call. Yes, it should have been a perfect game.

The amazing part is what happened afterward. Galarraga displayed true sportsmanship. Jim Joyce, the distraught umpire, apologized and Galarraga forgave him.

We all make mistakes. How often do we admit them?

That takes moxie.

I'm attending a Family Fun Day event at The Friendship Circle from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. Sunday. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come! Friendship Circle is using this event as a way to reach out to the community and get people to learn more about who they are and what they do (FC provides services to families with disabled children). The facility is awesome!
