I’ve been posting this for what? two years. Made just a few changes to the one two years ago.
It was a Night before Christmas
Twas the Night Before Christmas and in every house
All baseball fans 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 what friends had posted was just what they needed but they frownded!
When they went to click on their sites, none could be found!
Oh no! we’re afraid everyone is out of town!
Is the internet down the reason we cannot read?
How could this happen in our time of need?
The users all panicked, they shivered in fright,
They pined for their read/write and settled in for the night.
“Did we misspell the links? 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 all 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 bloggers and posters 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
“HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!”
Look what Santa Dodgers sent me. (it was sent to all Season ticket holders. The coffee mug at the end. The items before like the stadium in 2008, the Globe with the glove and the replica seats are from prior years. The Christmas card with Tommy is next. Miss Piggy bobblehead is in the back. I have Kermit too somewhere.
Dodgers are breaking our hearts and our season ticket family my removing the last two rows (R& P) of the Top Deck. I felt like they served me an eviction noticed when I got the call on Wednesday
I think instead of a call the day before they opened Select A Seat meetings for Season ticket holders, we should have been notified way before. The Dodgers said that they were holding rows O & N for the displaced fans yet when I went yesterday the only open seats in my section (3) on what will now be the last row (O) were three seats.
I will miss having my season ticket family together. I will miss having my friend Lorena next to me watching the game while we make plans for our road games. I will miss Ray and Ray Junior asking them “what happened in that play” since they also keep score.
I will miss Steve & Rhonda and their two little girls. Rhonda emailed me wondering what everyone is doing about the seats. She tells me “The girls will miss their best friends!!” Rachel likes to sit with Lorena and I and dance with us during Adrian Gonzales att Bat music. She also likes to sing with us Take me out to the Ball Game and “God Bless America”
I will miss Martha & her husband and kid. I will miss Todd and wife and their two sons. I will miss Chuck and Robin. I will miss Mary & Art. I will miss Joe and his girlfriend. Where is our Candy Man James with his dad and his two kids going to sit? Sad day for the displaced season ticket holders in the last two rows of the Top Deck. How far apart are all of us going to end up?
I was told that the removal of the seats is to expand the handicap area but that the sections with the wall will be Standing Room only. I feel like the casual fans that will take the “Standing Room only” are more important than the faithful season ticket holders. Another reason that I liked my last row is that is in the shade and I can watch the game standing up if I like without anyone in back of me.
Other season ticket holders are also moving because now instead of only the first row having a higher price, rows A thru H will have a higher price. Between those season ticket holders moving beyond H and the ones from the last two rows there are not many choices left.
I ended up with seats in section 3, the new last row. Ray ended up in Section 5. Rene in section 2. Margie in section 2 but moving to the handicap when those are built. Lore has an appointment on Monday, the earliest she can meet them. Jeanine and two other friends moved from row B in section 3 to row L. I have not heard from the rest.

My season tickets went up 50%. I got my invoice some time ago but I have not responded. I have also gotten a couple of calls from Dodger reps that have gone to voice mail. I can’t deal with the calls right now. I am not a happy camper with how the Dodger season went and what a bleak future we Dodger fans are facing with the pending divorce.
It would be a different story had the Dodgers done better. The Giants winning the World Series did not help. Right now, well, I rather not talk to anyone from the Dodgers about renewing my season tickets.
I should change my voice mail to something like “Sorry I am not available right now, I have
crawled under a rock. I will be hibernating until I forget the Giants won the World Series or until the Dodgers get a new owner that will sign a legitimate number one pitcher and a left fielder and a third baseman.” What do you think?
I have gotten calls, emails from fellow season ticket holders asking me what I plan on doing. I know they are not happy. Some of the tickets are going up more than that now that the Dodgers will charge more for the first rows in a level so for some the increase will be more than 50%.
I know my mood will pass and in the end I’ll give them my money. I mentioned in my prior post that I am reading “Eat Pray Love”. I am at the eating part of the book where Elizabeth is in Italy. Hanging out at a soccer game with friends, Elizabeth’s friend Lucas Spaghetti (She says that is his real name) says to her
We can change our wives, We can change our jobs, our nationalities and even our religions, but we can never change our team.”
Elizabeth also mentions that the word for “fan” in Italian is tifoso. Derived from the word Typhus. In other words_one who is mightly fevered.”
