Twas the Night Before Christmas at the MLB Blogs!

Twas the Night Before Christmas at the MLB Blogs!
“Twas the Night Before Christmas and in every house
All good MLB bloggers and readers were clicking their mouse

They hung all their stockings, decorated their trees
and now it was time to sit down and see
What everyone posted on this Christmas Eve.

A nice break to read a bunch of good bloggers
Was just what they needed, but Oh no! the buggers!

When they went to the MLB site, none could be found.
“Oh no, we’re afraid Mark went out of town
Is the server down the reason we cannot read?
How could he do this in our time of need?

The bloggers all panicked, they shivered in fright,
They pined for their read/write and settled in for the night.

“Did we  misspell the link? Did we hit the wrong key?
Did it go to LALA land?” Oh such misery!
And then in a flash, with a stroke of a key,
One by one, they discovered their Christmas Eve reads.

Their eyes how they twinkled, they laughed and smiled.
And they settled into the chair to read/write for a while.

Their hearts were delighted, they felt just like kids,
But it’s still such a mystery where the MLB links had hid.
Was it there all the time and they just didn’t see?
Or did Santa step in and do a good deed?

Good baseball fans are on Santa’s list
And good MLB bloggers and readers he vows never to miss.

It’s been a long night, time to climb into bed,
So they shut down their computers and laid down their heads.

But in a quiet of night, before things came to an end,
They heard “Thanks for reading and writing with me,
Its great to read and write with baseball friends!”

I wish you peace and joy!
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night! Happy New Year!

Blue Holiday Spirit!

How a Dodger fan copes this season?   That is my friend Erik’s arm and yes, that is a Dodger tattoo on his arm.  We were enjoying a shot of Patron.

speaking of patron.. (I heard a fan call Jaime, Patron, out of respect.  Patron means “the boss.”   “Un Patron para el patron.”    

Happy belated birthday Jaime Jarrin!

Jaime Jarrin has been the Spanish voice of the Dodgers for 50 years!   He turned 74 December 10th.   I remembered but have not been posting lately, but I have been reading you all! 

Jaime was born in Quito, Ecuador.  Jaime began work as a broadcaster in Ecuador when he was 16.  He went on to become the announcer for the National Congress of Ecuador.  He came to the U.S. in June of 1955.  At that time he had never seen a baseball game!  

When the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles in 1958, KWKW, where Jarrin was the news and sports director, picked up the Spanish language rights for the games and the rest is history.    

  

Here is a pic of the two Hall of Famers, Vin Scully and Jaime Jarrin.  the picture is from 2009 giveaway calendar.

Gentlemen: You look marvelous!!

 

Dodger Christmas Gift for Season Ticket Holders!

So Saturday I get this box and I knew it was my Dodger Christmas gift for season ticket holders!   The year before we had gotten a Christmas globe and the year before that a mini repplica of Dodger Stadium.  This year is a replica  of our seats!  

My friend Erik got his in the form of a bench since he sits in the pavilion.   Here is a picture

 

Here is my friend LTD23’s pic

Aren’t they adorable!   I love them!!!  

Until I saw these pictures, I realized that I don’t have the letters and numbers for mine.  I must have dropped it when I openned the box.  

Here is a pic of mine but along some other Dodger memorabillia and some my baseball books.

Did I say that the seats are adorable!?!!

Next to the box snowman is my Dodger Stadium replica, my Dodger seats from this year, and the Dodger Xmas globe.   You can see part of the baseball books.  There is Miss Piggy in a Dodger uniform, a Dodger Dog, Jackie Robinson statue and Sandy Koufax statue.  

Everyone have a wonderful, safe and healthy merry Christmas!
