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!

    We all know that Mark is snug like a bug in a rug right now waiting for the AM so he can be a kid for a few hours.
    Thank you for that great NEW Christmas themed posting that we will all remember.

    I hope tomorrow you day is filled with smiles, family and all the laughter you can handle. But not too many cookies!

    Very nice Emma! Made me smile from ear to ear! That reminds me; I haven’t parodied a new song on ITD in a LONG time! Hope your Christmas was great! Mine was fine; I’m just trying to get over this cold that I’ve had for about a week.

    Hey Emma!
    Okay, I know I said it’ll be closer to March when I was able to give you dates that we’ll be at Camelback, but I have a closer idea. I think we’re going to be driving from LA either Saturday or Sunday 3/20 or 3/21. We were only planning on staying in the area for a few days, but I know my husband wants to be there to catch the 1:05 game on Monday the 22nd (at Camelback) against the Angels. My mom will be with us! We were only thinking of staying in the area for a few days; we can’t afford to stay too much longer.

    I wanted to ask you something. I REALLY want to have an autograph book with me (I was thinking of having one for my mom too!) Last year at Camelback, did you get autographs? How willing were the guys to give autographs? Were some more willing than others? I just wanted to know from someone that was there last year. I personally want to think that every player would be willing to give his autograph, but I didn’t know if some give into the mentality that, “I don’t want to give my autograph for free when I could be paid to do it.”

    What do you think? Am I being too cynical? And if any of your fellow bloggers on this site want to chime in on this question, please, the more info, the better!!! 🙂

    Thanks Babu! Happy Holiday season to you too!
    That is wonderful that you already have dates set. Your husband, mom and you will have a great time!

    Spring training is absolutely the best time to get autographs and pictures taken with the boys. The guys are all relaxed and more willing to sign autographs and take pictures and talk with the fans. I don’t get many autographs, I am more into taking pictures and just talking with the guys but plenty of fans take lots of things to sign. I have gotten some baseball signs by guys in Vero Beach as well as Camelback.
    I hope to see you there! I’ll let you know of the dates I will be there. Just watch out for the cameras on the freeway!
