All of us here at MLG have a bit of a warm and fuzzy feeling right now. We've just learned that the Mayor of Providence, Angel Taveras, has declared Friday, November 18th to be Major League Gaming Day in Providence. Thank you, city of Providence, for this incredible honor!

In honor of MLG day, New England Patriots Running Back Stevan Ridley will be joining a host of MLG pro Call of Duty: Black Ops players in an expo match during MLG Providence. They'll be joined by nine-year old Austin, who's coming to the event to play with his favorite pros as part of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. 

To start things off, the Mayor will be joining MLG'c CEO and Co-Founder, Sundance DiGiovanni, on the Main Stage at 5pm ET this Friday as part of the National Championship opening ceremony. Join us as we kick off MLG Providence in style!
