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!

    Hey Emma!
    I know, it’s been a long time! Love those pics! Yes, those seat replicas are very cute indeed! Did you read on ITD that I officially have my business and my own website! Check it out: www.

    Okay, sorry for the cheap plug! 🙂 From your last thread, yes, we Dodger fans can get all gloom and doom about our ownership problems and all, but you’ve got it right girl – I can’t stay away from Dodger Stadium just to make a statement.

    Guess what? I think we are going to Camelback this ST!!! I can’t wait!!! We’re going (I think) the last full week of March. Of course, we’re probably going to go to many of the parks (especially the Cubs and the Angels), but we’ll be there! Actually, now that I think of it, I think there is a ST game between the Dodgers and Angels sometime that week. I don’t know; we’ll see! I’ll let you know when I know more…

    Mee too I love them! During December when a small box arrives from around the area, I know…and I get excited opening it and looking at it!
    I did read about your website! Congratulations on starting your business! I’ll check it out! Have you done business cards? And that is wonderful that you are going to Camelback! You and your husband will love it! Hopefully we will be there at the same time! I love running into people I know! Yes! Let me know when you know more about your trip. I am excited for you!!

    Thx Emma!
    Yeah, I do have business cards. Actually, they just arrived today! Do you want some? If you want, you can e-mail me your address and I’ll send some to you – if you don’t mind a little late Christmas letter with it! I’m excited about ST. I will definitely let you know more when I get more news; probably closer to March…

    Funny thing about my website. I’ve been working with the company that is hosting my website. You KNOW I had to get the Dodgers and ITD in there someway. You know many on ITD have given me the nickname CP – Hey! CP Bookkeeping! Plus, when you look at my website look at the color up at top!!! Yep, you guessed it! Dodger Blue!!! 🙂

    I loved that seat idea.
    I fired off an Email to my Season Ticket Rep asking him why we are not that clever.
    Heck, I have not gotten anything from them for the last two years.
    Used to get good stuff (lol).
    Again, hope you have the best holiday season and a safe New Years.
    I will try and get down a shot of Patron to wish you the best for 2010. (The things I do for online friends)

    the link did not work. Maybe I got something wrong there. I’ll email you my address.
    You are so sweet. LOL. Patron goes down smooooth. And good for you that you notified your season ticket rep.
    You too! Have a great Holiday and a safe year!
    Go Dodgers! Go Rays! My brother Vic’s two favorite teams.

    Interesting Emma. I just looked at my website, just to make sure I spelled it right up above, and I did. (You know, all of those double letters in a row!) Anyways, don’t feel bad; bookkeeping is NOT an easy word to spell! 🙂

    I like that collection of baseball books there, Emma. I’m building a library of my own. Merry Christmas to you!

    I found you! You are probably right that I was not spelling bookkeepnig..I mean bookkeeping correct. LOL. Website looks great girl!
    I love books! I have a few more baseball books that are…well around the house.
    Thanks! Thank you for stopping by! I sent the Dodgers an email that I love our gift this year. Well, I do love it every year!
    Same to you! Have a great Christmas. I always try to have fun and look at the bright side of things!

    I’m sorry for the off topic question but would you maybe tell me where to find the design that you’re using? I would like to have the same blog template or maybe one that is similar to yours. Could you maybe tell me where you got it from?

  10. Emma

    All questions welcome. The design is a standard for MLB once you choose your MLB baseball team. Hope that helps! If not let me know, and I’ll try to be more specific. Thanks
