It's official. We just got word that the rumored City of Portland vs. Occupy Portland softball game is happening early next month. Check out the details!
Portland City Park Rangers have challenged Occupy Portland to a friendly game of softball. Occupy Portland gladly accepted this invitation and in turn has invited all unions that represent Portland city workers, as well as the general public, to join in the celebration of unity and mutual respect.
We ask that all who attend leave their alcohol and politics at home. We will supply a BBQ and soft drinks as well as family-friendly music in the evening. Some vegan food will be provided, however we do recommend that people bring their favorite vegan dish to share. Blankets and lawn chairs are recommended.

There's already a Facebook page where crucial questions—like rosters, uniforms, and mascots—are being discussed.
My question: If the game is open to city union members, does that mean Portland cops, members of the Portland Police Association, will be participating, too? I didn't see them on the distro list, but that could be ... interesting.
