Patrick has been a dear friend to Steel for a very long time.  The best part of their friendship is the fact that I really enjoy Patrick's company too.  He has a gregarious personality and a laugh that is unforgettable.  Patrick is always happy, congenial and a big tease which means he fits in around here perfectly.  Patrick goes to school in San Luis Obispo now so we don't get to see him as much as we used to, but he's home on Spring Break now so it was a treat to visit with him again.  They are headed to the Oakland A's game tomorrow so they are getting their tail-gate menu prepared tonight.
