Twas the Night Before Christmas

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


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.

    Merry Christmas, Emma,
    Is that a “Miss Piggy” bobblehead I see? Hmm…
    Also, I trust you heard of the passing of former MLB RHP Frank Pastore (1975 2nd round pick of the Reds). He was in a coma for four weeks after sustaining injuries after in a motorcycle accident and died today (Monday). I mention this because it was a Dodger (Steve Sax) who essentially ended his pitching career with a line drive off his right elbow in 1987.

    Yes it is Miss Piggy! She is a pitcher! Yes, I heard of his passing. He died last Monday December 17. I read the obituary in the La Times. Sad how he died. It was on the 210 very close to my house. It was also because of the accident with Steve Sax that he became religious. Merry Christmas. You know I wish SABR LA would have the SABR Day at Dodger Stadium. They are having their Fanfest that day, the very first time they have a Winter Fanfest.

      Is the Fanfest at Dodger Stadium by invitation only (i.e., for season ticket holders?). If not, I would be inclined to go, but for only a little while as I have to work a basketball game at UC Riverside that afternoon. Otherwise, I would be at SABR (La Habra), a little closer to my home in Riverside and UCR.

        John, the invitation is for all. I would like to go to both. We will see what I do. Depends who will he gherr.
        Will, that is great that you are going to Spring Training. not sure what dates I will be there but I like going for St Patrick day.

    Emma, I know it’s been a while. Hope you are doing well? I just wanted to let you know that I will be going to Spring Training this coming season with some of the TBLA gang. I will be there from Feb. 22 to March 4. Do you have any plans of going to Spring Training yourself? Also do you have any plans of going to New York in June to see our Bums play the Yanks?

    Have a great Christmas,
