Inside The Dodgers Blog Group Get Together

The first blog that I started reading and posting here was http://insidethedodgers.mlblogs.com/  We have a nice group of faithful pasionate Dodger fans there.  A while back someone suggested that we should have a group  get together at the stadium and that maybe our leader from the blog Josh Rawitch who is VP of communications for the Dodgers should give us the tour.   . 

Josh agreed and finally this is going to happen! http://insidethedodgers.mlblogs.com/archives/2009/06/inside_the_dodgers_tour.html#comments   the tour will take place this Saturday at 11:30 A.M.  We got a special price for the tour and also for tickets later on that night.  I know a few of the posters there like Amy27, Cats, Dnelly, Trueblue, Carol, Roberto6, and I can’t wait to meet the rest!  

Someone there suggested that the Dodgers should fly here oldbrooklynfan who lives in New York.   Well!  Josh wrote that he talked to Frank McCourt and Frank agreed!   At first oldbrooklynfan declined but after working things out, he posted the following:

Hi Everbody
I just want to say first off that I am very nervous, I can hardly sleep or eat but I am preparing myself for the trip.
I am giving Josh via e-mail all the information that he’s asking for so that he can arrange the trip.
I haven’t been on a plane in over 45 years and that was when I flew in from Hawaii after my tour of duty ended in the Army.>>(9/30/63)
I really had no plans of flying again.
When Josh contacted me I was in tremendous shock, but after thinking it over, I began to feel, If I turned it down, I know I’d regret it the rest of my life, since I’ve remained a Dodger fan after they left Brooklyn.
Again I want to thank all of you on ITD for suggesting it and making it all possible.

Jane,
I met oldbrooklynfan today. He arrived at noon so when Josh Raditch said he had arrived I found out where he was sitting. When I get a chance, I will post a picture.
