One of the topics last month for our monthly company  meeting in the cafeteria was talking about the company 2012 season tickets.  They started with:   

Our Meeting with Tommy

First we told Tommy we wanted free tickets

Then Tommy countered with $$

Finally we sent our chief negotiator and got them down to $$

They were only looking for pictures of Tommy but the guy doing that part of the presentation was surprised to find a picture of Tommy with me.  He decided to use it.   There are about 500 employees here so I had a few stop me asking me “So you know Tommy?”   lol.  

Charlie Dressen (7) days till Dodgers Opening Day at Dodger Stadium

Charlie Dressen was a Brooklyn Dodgers  coach from 1939 – 1946.  He took over as manager in 1951.  After leading the Dodgers to a World Sereis in 1952 and 1953 -but losing both times to the Yankees, he demanded a three-year contract from team principals  Walter O’Malley and buzzie Bavasi.  Instead, O’Malley fired him and replaced with Walter Alson, a man who would go on to manager the club for more than two decades, always on a one-year contract. 

 

Freeway Series. 

Is  the Freeway Series with the Anaheim Angels.  Dodgers lost the first game last night at Anaheim by the score of 12-3.  Ugh. 

I am going to tonight’s game but I can’t get there for batting practice.  Kristen of http://blithescribe.mlblogs.com/ will be there.  I’ll will try to go see her after I say hi to a lot of people at the stadium.   I am excited to see Our Lady of Chavez Ravine again.
