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.

“Could we have misspelled 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!

    Holy Moly,
    Emma it seems that everyone is writing their version of “The Night Before Christmas” this season.
    But what is cool about each version is the local and team oriented difference that makes it all seem brand new every time you read one of them.
    Hopefully we will all be here clicking our mouses tonight.
    Feliz Navidad, Merry Christmas and Buno Natale to you and your family.

    Feliz Navidad! Mele Kalikimaka, Frohe Wiehnachten, Buno Natale, and Nadolig Llawen. Now I want to hear the Welsh melody “All Thru the Night.” It is beautiful!

    I am going to go to your blog. Need to ask you something about wineries in Santa Barbara.
    I am looking forward to midnight mass at our local church.

    Thanks Randy. Right now my spirit needs lifting. I’ve been working since 5 with problems at work when this week should be a holiday week for me since the company is shutdown. The problems of IT do not know is a holiday. On top I got plumbing problems at work with someone that came in to do work and is now worst, left that he can’t fix and now I find myself looking for another plumber while I need to fix problems at work.
    Hi Peter,
    I did have a nice vacation. Just hope after today, things will be better.
