Well it’s not that bad… and maybe I’ve become cynical, but when I got the invite I wasn’t excited.
Friday, July 13th is Blogger Night. Yawn…
I had the time to spare. I had the money. I just didn’t want to go.
Maybe it was because when the Dodgers started allowing “bloggers” to sit in the pressbox, I was the first one to be there! Not a blogger from LA, but a stinking blogger from Indiana. Who knew?
I thank Josh Rawitch for that (hope all is well in AZ, Josh – I have your number but I haven’t called… sorry, maybe someday!).
I am sure if I was there, there would be some fireworks. I would have to tell the moron from the LFP that he is a punk and a hypocrite (to say nothing of being a cretin) and maybe beat his ass. In case he doesn’t know what “cretin” means, here’s the definition: “A Person that is: brainless, stupid, child-like, and full of pointless information that makes no sense and appeals only to other cretins. They can be found in abundance in every single populated internet forum, where they race to post as many mind-numbing messages as possible in a single session. In addition, they seemingly interbreed with other cretins, ensuring that their cretinous genes continue long after they end up dead meaning the Internet will never be rid of their kind. More’s the pity.”
I would have to hear Ned Colletti say that he is working overtime looking for deals that will help the Dodgers and blah, blah, blah. Then Stan Kasten would come in and say that Dodger Pride is alive and well, and finally Magic would walk in and make me vomit! I can script the whole thing.
I had no desire to go and see anyone but Jon Weisman.
I would pay admission to see him. For the record, I think he is struggling with the blogging thing, like me.
I do wish Roberto a FULL and speedy recovery – he is a good kid.
Anyway, this is my swan song. I was never a writer, as many of you so eloquently pointed out. I will be rooting for the Dodgers. I will be watching the Dodgers. I just won’t be writing for the Dodgers.
I have to do other things. I hope you understand.
I have been doing this for over 10 years. It’s time.
I’ll be reading the blogs: Mostly Mike Petriello and Jon Weisman, that are relevant. Jared Massey is a friend and a good writer who is at Ladugout.com (Good Luck, Jared).
Will I ever be back? I have no clue – never say “Never.”
Believe me, I will be rooting for the Dodgers – maybe I’ll post something from time-to-time, but I’m done for now.
I love you all… even Mike Dixon.
If someone wants to take this blog over, let me know. I’ll help you if I can.
I’m off for a week with my wife of 15 years to celebrate our anniversary in Newport, Rhode Island.
