I sure hope this commercial airs before the end of June. Lately, AADL has had some luck with their television commercials getting out before the events. I'll be working a lot this summer and I can't guarantee I'll make it to all of these but I'll try to get to what I can.


Awesome line up. I'm going to try and make it to a few of those. Don't know which ones yet, except that I want to attend street fighter. I'm also waiting for pokemondays to start up again. I'll have some level 100 pokemon for the library if they need them.
