Happy Thanksgiving!

First off, thank you all for your well wishes for Chad and your feedback regarding the news of the last couple days. I will make sure that the get-wells make it to Chad and that your comments are passed along to everyone at the Dodgers involved in the offseason decision-making processes.

In the meantime, I wish you and all your families a great holiday on behalf of everyone at the Dodger organization.

Happy Thanksgiving Josh! Wishing you and your family the best!
Did not get a chance to wish Chad a speedy recovery. Chad: You should have stayed in your home in AZ or better yet here where we have wonderful weather, just a little rain for a few days. Deb & Richard from Defiance, Oh also send you their best wishes! thanks for helping me pronounce their last name 🙂 Ever since I met them in Vero Beach, I keep in contact with them.
Happy Thanksgiving to all the ITD members here! Stay safe!

Happy Thankgiving Josh!!! You have been great through all of our rants and raves. I wish you the best of luck in the next few days, weeks as your job, I’m sure, will have some undo pressure placed on the recent events that will sure to unfold in the very near future. Once again, have a very Happy Thanksgiving, thanks for giving us this forum, and best wishes always!!!

Emma – Happy Thanksgiving to you as well dear….. 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving Josh! Thanks for the well wishes, and the same go for you and yours and everyone with the Dodgers family.

Dodger4life – LOL!!!!

75 Days until Spring Training
Until then the fans will be praying
The young guns will be playing
Furcal will be staying
CC or Manny, Frank will be paying
Andruw and Pierre, we’ll be trading
75 Days until Spring Training
Until then the fans will be praying


I came back before hitting the hay. Good night all and have a great day tomorrow.
I also didn’t give well wishes to Chad.
So Chad, I really do hope your feeling better & I’m sorry your leg is broken! Maybe we should get you some ice skates for Christmas:)! I can joke about that because I’ve broken, cut, torn so many things in my years of sports and just living that I’ve spent many a days in the emergency room! Hang in there and enjoy your relaxing time with your family. I recommend Christmas Vacation as a good Christmas movie to rent while your sitting there with your leg up! Also munch on a pomegranate while watching and your wound feel any pain. The struggle to get those dang little treasures out of the fruit will distract you!!

Thank-you Josh,
I wish you and your family a Happy Thansgiving.
I wish the entire Dodger organization from the very top to the newest fan, a wonderful and safe holiday season.

Here are just a few things I’m thankful for this year.
Im thankful that I live in the greatest country in the world.
I’m thankful that my family and friends are safe, happy and healthy.
I’m thankful for my belief in something more powerful than I.
I’m thankful for all of the Dodger organization past and present.
I’m thankful to be one of the many wonderful fan’s of the best team on the globe, Go Dodger’s!

Today let’s all be thankful and Please remember those fighting and protecting our freedom. For all of you I am Truly Thankful God- Bless 🙂

I’ll join the belated-wishes-to-Chad

Chad, sorry to hear about the accident. Hope you get well soon, and here’s to hoping for another season as great as the last one. Next time you get to October, you’ll get ’em good! Take care

Ward Dear… my cranberries did bounce!!! LOL!!! I know you are probably in bed, but in case you are out there somewhere, I wanted to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. Have a blast with your family as I am sure you always do. Take care and God Bless to you and your family 🙂

If you want some late night/early morning reading, go over to Dodger Thoughts and Sons of Steve Garvey. You can find each link to the right of this page. It will make you feel good that it is not just us that are having issues with the McCourt’s current financial escapade and really not giving us a choice.

Good-Night ITD, Enjoy your Turkey, Tamales and all the trimmings.
God-bless Us All 🙂

Good Night Dodger4life!!! Always a pleasure talking with you, and you yourself have a Happy Thanksgiving with your family. Take Care and God Bless 🙂

Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving to all! Thanks, Josh for all you do for us and I really do hope you pass along our feelings about the team status. What we say comes from the heart because we love our Dodgers. We are very smart baseball fans and know what-is-what.

Good morning all and Happy Thanksgiving! That little poll should tell Ms Jamie how the Dodgers fans feel! It is great that they want to help out the community but not at the expense of our beloved Dodgers!!!

Thanks for the new post Josh…the other one was so long that I could not even get to the bottom of it!!!

Happy Thanksgiving my ITD friends!
I’m so sorry about last night. I know I called out some of my ITD friends that I haven’t talked to in a while, then in my next post I say bye. To those who were saying hi when I had already left, sorry for leaving without warning. I would’ve loved to talk to everyone last night, but I did have more cooking to do.

Well, I’m NOT gonna do that here. Yes, this is a short visit, just like last night, but I’ll put in the same post that I’ll catch up with y’all later…

Happy Thanksgiving my friends!

Just popping in to add to all of the good wishes from the great people here on ITD!

Happy Thanksgiving to one and all! I echo the wonderful sentiments by our friend Dodger4life. Since he has the moniker of us all, he may as well speak for us all as well. I’ll add another Thanks to it though. My wife landed herself a job yesterday. It’s only a part-time job, 20 hours a week. But it gets her off the unemployment bandwagon, which she truly hated. Thank God for that!

Talk to you all soon, and may God Bless each and every one of us!


THAT is wonderful news Ward Dear!! I just happened to have a break, and was checking in myself. I am so happy for her. She’s been in my prayers, and that is just great!!!! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!!!

congrats Eric that is great news….somehow on my desktop my login is Dodgerboy not ramslover….go figure….

Today I am truly thankful that Jaime McCourt opened her fat stupid mouth yesterday and not today. That would have trulu ruined my Thanksgiving. The McCourt’s ineptitude has been a big topic amongst my family today, especially with my family from Los Angeles. It is pretty much unanimous in here that the McCourt’s should sell the team. I am sure they bought the team with a real desire to succeed but as we all know the McCourt’s have been a complete disaster and there is no indication it will get any better. Frank, I am sure you tried your best but please sell the team. If you want to leave a good legacy in Los Angeles the best thing for you to do is sell the team to someone who knows what they are doing. Dodger fans will thank you, you will be a hero.

Josh, you’re the VP of Public Relations correct? Tell Jamie to not speak anymore. Make up a fake injury like they did for Mark Sweeney and tell the press she broke her jaw and it had to be wired shut. Every time she says something It always seems to embarrass the franchise. I just read the transcript of her interview on 710 ESPN and like usual she embaressed the team. This situation just keeps getting worse to me. I think the collapse of the McCourt era is underway. I bet we have new owners by 2011. McCourt is right about the economy and I can understand his point. I am as sour about the economy as everyone and I don’t think McCourt will be able to survive the next year or so. Especially with the new administrations tax increases to the rich, the continuting inflation and devaluation of our currency Frank doesn’t stand a chance. If he’s pinching pennys now just wait until next offseason.

Hello Everyone, I trust your Thanksgiving was a sucsess.
DodgerEric tell your wife congradulations, and she has many unicorns. God Bless Everybody, enjoy your evening.

GO DODGER’s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Any thing it takes to win a championship?
CC I’d like you to meet Manny and our Young Gun’s.
Manny and our Young Guns, I’d like you to meet CC.
Baseball I’d like you to meet the competition!!!!!

Good Evening ITD readers and writers!!!! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!!

ramslover – I see nellyjune as my sign in name, and it has yet to post like that on ITD. It sounds like we have a similar issue.

Max – nice posts!!!!!

dodger4life – Make sure you enjoy your evening as well 🙂 Like Dodgereric said, your name speaks for all of us – dodger 4 life 🙂

The Yankee’s are willing to go as high as 150 million for CC
Whatever it takes to win a Championship?

Nelly if someday, I have to move in to a cardboard box, God forbid.
My box will be Dodger Blue with the letter’s LA on it!!!!!!
Dodger4life in all season’s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That would be great Dodger4life – We would all know who you are then, wouldn’t we? ….but I am not hoping for that 🙂

I’d probably need a really big box to aquire all the people wanting to live there. lol!!!!

Especially, after Frank does ” Whatever It Takes To Win A Championship? “

The McCourts continue to make the Dodgers the laughingstock of MLB. I can’t believe how this once proud franchise with what used to be one of the most respected front offices and ownership is now the butt of jokes and ridicule across the league. Jaime and Frank need to let their baseball people do their job and stay out of the way. Of course, if the McCourts are so worried about the effect of the economy of all of us loyal fans, we would all sincerely appreciate a rollback in prices on tickets, parking and concessions…LOL.

THAT would be one fun box!!!!! Party time – Dodger Box style!!!!!

LMAO!!!!! Mad Dog For Everybody!!!!! lol!!!

LMAO!!!! Can you imagine us camped out at Dodger Stadium – year round tail gating party!! Gin and lemonade all around!!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving, JOSH and to your family and friends.
and to the rest of the Dodger organization.

Let the good times roll!! Youll have to supply the music lol!!!!
Happy Thanksgiving to you too joepierre.

Maybe we can get the McCourts to donate to the cause. They like spending their money on charities – wouldn’t the Dodger Box be the perfect charity?

Get’s my vote 🙂

….and if we are really good, maybe they will build us a ballpark too – LOL!!!!!

The Still from Mash 4077 and a Lemon Tree, that’s doable I think. lol!!!

DodgerTown here we come 🙂


Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends at ITD.
Josh- we are All Thankful for you and this blog that you are so dedicated to on a regular basis. No doubt that you are a busy man and you still find time to not only post, but listen to us and understand our feelings. I hope you enjoyed the day with your family.
I hope everyone else’s day went well. I am all done with family and am at my own place showered and relaxed. 9 hours with the family was good enough for me. I must say that I look forward to my birthday/christmas this year. I can’t wait for all the decorations and lights..yeah for the Holidays 🙂
Have a good night everyone and take care.

Happy Thanksgiving Amy, Sweet Dodger Dreams…. 🙂

After dinner the family was sitting around talking, so I mentioned the fact about the bug’s and spider’s it was a big hit. lol!!
Thanks DodgerEric 🙂

I told my family all of them. My neice loved the unicorn/blessings thing and the pregnant goldfish being a twit is just hilarious!!!

Oh sorry!!! Good night Amy – I am glad you are home and nice and comfy. Have a great evening!!!!

Hey, does anyone want that last piece of pumpkin pie?

Hey !!!! Good Evening Ward Dear …… not a chance dear. That is great to hear about Chris.

I still have three pie’s left. Good-Evening DodgerEric 🙂

Dodger4life – make sure the Dodger Box has fried chicken and cold beers on Friday nights (not that I drink beer) – LOL!!!

So, Ward Dear….. does that mean all the cookies are gone if there is pumpkin pie left? 🙂

Good Thanksgiving Evening all!

Yeah, she’s pretty happy. She’s back in the financial planning biz again, which she truly loves to do. The insurance game depressed the hell out of her. Like I said earlier, it’s only 20 a week, but she’s pretty happy.

What kinda pies are they D4?

Dodgerblue Chickens running around Dodgertown I like it.
Blue beer will be Brewed daily 🙂

Pumpkin, Chocolate and Lemon 🙂

I trust you had the cookie’s 🙂

Oh, no. I still have about 3 dozen here. I took 6 to my sister-in-law’s. Matt made his own pumpkin pie yesterday, crust and all. It’s pretty good!

Hurray for Matt 🙂

Ward Dear…..that is just great. As long as she’s happy, that’s what counts. Good for her 🙂

Dodger4life – everything blue sounds like a plan.

Wow!!!!! Dodgereric – my daughter loves pumpkin pie, and she is very impressed Matt made his own pumpkin pie. She made a gingerbread trifle and brownies, but the pumpkin pie wins out for difficulty 🙂

I am glad you saved some cookies for your own family.

We are on the homade bread and butter thing around here. My brother has two cow’s and two pigs a lot of chickens. It is kind of like old tyme day’s around here.

He used the last of the pie dough to make a picture of a turkey and put it in the center. He’s an interesting kid. My mom complemented him on the crust. She said she could never get one that she liked.

Oh man, there’s nothing that makes a house smell better than homemade bread.

Wow!!! That’s great dodger4life – homemade bread is a very good thing 🙂

That is impressive DodgerEric.
We have good bread day’s and not so good bread day’s, Today was awesome.
Fudge day’s are always bad though…

Ward Dear…..that is fabulous!!!!

If you think about it Dodgereric, if Matt wants to be a firefighter, he is going to have to learn how to be a cook too. Firefighters are some of the best cooks around. So, keep him cooking and baking.

Hurray for Matt again 🙂

LOL!!! Dodger4life – there’s a couple of cookie recipes that I do that have that same issue. It has to be the right everything for them to be tried. Believe me, I’ve tried….. 🙂

We keep on trying, one of these day’s…..

Oooooo, fuuuuudge!! We do fudge once a year. Christmas only.

Chris’ uncle and grandfather were both firemen in Chicago. She’s heard all the stories. And you can’t keep him out of the kitchen if you tried. He wants to learn how to make ‘my’ cookies. He’ll get his chance in a few more weeks. He was talking with my mom on the way home tonight. He’s going over to her place to make Christmas cookies when the time comes.

Sport Illustrated’s Turkey’s Of The Year~ Anruw Jones # 10.

That is great Ward Dear. Michael actually enjoys cooking more than Mariya right now, in general. Mariya has her favorites she will do everytime. Where Michael is more willing to try out new things. This is the first year all four of us were in the kitchen at one point working on something. It was a blast this year.

I hope you are counting down 🙂 I want to know who the top 5 are 🙂

I think Al Davis deserves to be much higher on that list (I think northstate would agree). I feel sorry for Detroit – that’s just sad. As for Andruw – well deserved. However, Ned needs to be side by side with him. Manny being Manny I guess got him on the list, and I am sure if this were done in the last few days, the McCourts might have been two to be added.

I think the turkey is sending me to bed.

Good night my friends and God Bless you!

Alan Iverson skipped practice today not playing tommorrow add him to that list. Yes the McCourts are in a league of there own.

Good Night Ward Dear….. thanks for hanging out with us. I am glad you had a great Thanksgiving, and I am so very happy about Chris. Take Care and God Bless to you and your family. Good night 🙂

Good-Night and God bless DodgerEric, Once again Congradulate the misses…

Good late evening ITD boys and girls!
Well, how was everyone’s turkey day! We went to my mom’s place in LA. It’s always great to see family that many of us haven’t seen in a long time. I hope everyone isn’t too stuffed!

Well, I had to sign on. I can’t say how long I’ll be here because I’m getting tired already, but I couldn’t go without talking to my ITD friends!

Happy Thanksgiving CP,
My day was good. Im glad to hear yours was as well.

Good Evening CP!!! You are up late!!!! I am glad to hear you had a good Thanksgiving. Mine was great as well – still cleaning up though, but it’s me taking my time.

Hey Dodger4life! So how are things in Idaho? Cold?

My Nellygirl! Yeah, I’m up late. Again, I don’t know how long I’ll be up this late, but we’ll see! So you were cooking today, huh? Who was there? I would imagine your mom and your sister were there, since they don’t live that far away from you, huh?

6-4-2 doulbe play has the Mason and Ireland podcast with J. McCourt, What a pregnant goldfish….

31 degrees at the present time 🙂

That’s right! My mom and dad; my sister, her husband and my niece, my younger of my two brothers and his wife and son, my grandfather, and my aunt and her daughter. We had 16 total. It was great seeing my grandpa – he’s 91, and for the most part is doing pretty good for being 91. It was also my brothers birthday. He was actually born on Thanksgiving 28 years ago. My other older younger brother was stayed down in LaQuinta and had my sister-in-laws family there.

Brrrrr Dodger4life! Too cold for me! Yeah, call me a spoiled Southern Californian, but I don’t do well with extreme weather conditions – be it extreme hot, extreme cold, extreme muggy, etc.

LMAO!!!! Dodger4life ~ See, Dodgereric states all these fascinating facts and phrases, and we always manage to use them in our everyday talk here on ITD. He is the originator of the Ethieraholic term. We just took claim to it.

He does have a way about him does’nt he. the cold weather isnt that bad CP.
Happy belated birthday Mr. Sciocia 50 years young
GO DODGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow Nelly! That was quite a group. And you still have a grandpa? I’ve been without grandparents since 1980. I always wished that my husband and my son knew my grandparents, but my son wasn’t born until 1987 and I didn’t meet my husband until 1995. Even my first husband wasn’t around when the last of my grandparents died. Well, enjoy your grandpa! Your kids must go nuts over him, and vice versa, huh? So how many siblings do you have in total?

Dodger4life – Are you talking about Mike Scoscia? The Angels manager and former Dodger great? If you are, I didn’t realize that he’s only a few years older than me!

The one and only CP

oh my goodness!!! It is Mike Scioscia’s Birthday!!!!! I knew that!!!!!!! Happy Birthday Mike Scioscia! He was my first Dodger love, you know? Andre is in very good company 🙂

CP – I am the oldest of four (42,40,32 and 28).

Dodger4life – Dodgereric is a group of unicorns 🙂

……and so are you and many others on ITD. We have a fabulous group on here, don’t we?

Scioscia~Sorry mike
Thanks Nelly and yes everybody does thier part.

Well, Happy Birthday Mike! You are still a Dodger in my book and will always be a Dodger to me!

I’m the youngest of five. And among my cousins, yeah, I’m towards the bottom. Probably why I don’t have any grandparents around anymore. Ya know Nelly, the reason why I’m so jealous that you still have a grandpa is because of my special relationship with my grandpa, my mom’s dad. He emigrated from Japan to the US around the 1900s. He eventually settled down in the tiny farming town of Ducor, north of Bakersfield. Well, my grandpa even though he didn’t speak a word of English, always loved and listened to Dodger games! He’s the one “responsible” for the long, line of Dodger fans in my family! He passed it down to my mom, who passed it down to me. My son is kinda getting the Dodger fan in him, but my nephews are huge Dodger fans! I can remember one of my grandpa’s later birthdays and he got a lot of Dodger stuff! A rally towel, anything and everything Dodger! We took a picture of him with a HUGE smile on his face, sitting in his favorite easy chair! Ah, great memories of grandpa!

Oh, and can one of you two tell me what a pregnant goldfish is? Is this another of Eric’s concoctions?

You are most welcome Dodger4life….. and you are not the first and you are certainly not the last person to spell Mike’s name wrong. I am pretty sure I spelled it wrong myself. I usually have to look it up before I type it, but tonight I winged it!!!

One of eric’s useless information pieces. A pregnant goldfish is called a twit. A group of unicorns is called a blessing.

Got it Nelly! That Eric; he is something else!

My grandparent’s are gone too, Cp along with my father so I know the feeling. I miss them all. I also have a son whom I lost. I dont let that one get out very often though.

Oh Dodger4life, I’m sorry to hear that. I still have my son, but my sister, Linda, died when she was only 46. I miss her so much. Linda was the oldest of the family and I was the youngest. Linda was like a second mom to me. My dad died five years ago. It’s just so hard to lose those so close to you.

That is a great story CP. My grandfather grew up in Brooklyn New York, hence the Dodger fan was born in my mom, then passed onto to her kids. I married into a Giants family. Well, my in-laws were really more A’s fans.

So Nelly, what did your mom say to you when you were going to marry a Giant fan! 😉 j/k

Dodger4life – I am so sorry 😦

My dad’s sister (June- imagine that!) was killed in a car accident. My dad survived, she didnt’. I never knew her, but she had blond hair and blue eyes, hence my sister being the only one in the family with blond hair and blue eyes.

I lost my grandad in 87, my dad in 88 and my son in 91, So its been a while. God will only give us what we can handle. It is just up to us to handle it. Im doing fine, I hope you are as well 🙂

I don’t think she said anything. I wasn’t as big of a Dodger fan as she was back then. I liked the Dodgers back then – I love them now 🙂

Now here is something I could never do. My sister went to a wedding where the bride and groom were serious Dodger fans, and for wedding colors they chose orange and black because orange is her favorite color. That is just not right, I say!!!!

All my kids have brown hair and eye’s. Hence thier mother bieng Mexican and Indian they say blue eyes skip a generation in these cases.

Yeah Dodger4life, God does only give us what we can handle. I’m much better than in ‘99 when my sister died and again in ’03 when my dad died. I just have to remember to enjoy every day that God allows me to walk on this planet. Because tomorrow is promised to no one.

Well, I don’t mean to be such a downer, but I’ve gotta go. It’s WAY past my bedtime. I’ll catch up with the two of you later… (Notice I didn’t say tomorrow; it is tomorrow!) Good night!

Kind of like Don Drysdale sponsering The Giants in my Little League. But the fact that he only came to see them play the Dodger’s and telling me to go whip thier butts for him was kind of cool.

Dodger4life – God must love the way you handle things because He gives you an awful lot to handle. You are very inspiring with all you have been through. God has a purpose, and He is using you in some grand way for sure. Yes, I know, He uses all of us in his own timing.

Okay, I had to come back for one last time. Nelly, yeah, serious Dodger fans getting married and they choose orange and black???

Okay, now I’ll say good night!

Good night Cp, God Bless 🙂

One can only hope Nelly 🙂

I keep getting FNC breaking news e-mails about what is going on in India – just horrible stuff, isn’t it?

Good night CP!!! Thanks for staying up with us. Always a pleasure to talk to you 🙂 Take care and God Bless…..

I was’nt drunk in public ,I was drunk in a bar, they threw me into public. I love Ron White 🙂

Isn’t he fabulous!!!

He and Bill Engval are my two favorites out of the blue collar group.

I like them all. But I could agree.

If I could only choose one of the four, probably Bill Engval because of the topic he talks about mostly – his family.

Going away from the blue collar guys, George Carlin ranks way up there, and I do like Jeff Dunham – he is hilarious and fascinating all at the same time because of what he does with Walter and gang.

The McCourt situation would fit right into Ron Whites Stand up act.

They would very much so because he hates people who try to rip him off,and they definitley fit into that category.

I loved Carlin, Dunham and Walter make me laugh also Johnathan Winters was hillarious also just wacko.

Johnathan Winters – wow! I have’t heard that name in a long time.

I dont think his was an act just total insanity, but funny 🙂

insanity fits him very well. I think of Robin Williams when insanity is mentioned.

Witty can make a joke about anything. Jay Leno had him and Chelsey Latley on one night, Kind of like a who’s funnier kind of thing. No contest she was humbled. But yes a little out there also 🙂

That is very true, and those mentioned above have mastered that craft of taking life’s simple things and making them down right hilarious.

And to do it in front of an audience that is only there to humored. Masterful 🙂

Good-Night Nelly, It’s 3;16 again God Bless to you and your family, It has been fun once again 🙂

Good Night Dodger4life!! Take and God Bless to you as well.

Good morning ITD. Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving with family and friends. Just ran across an interesting article in our local paper and thought you’d enjoy it……..Eighteen percent of pro football fans are so dedicated to their teams that thry would never marry a fan of their team’s biggest rival. More than four in 10 pro football fans would rather have their child become an NFL star than win the Nobel Prize. Those disturbing findings were produced by Expedia’s “Go Like a Pro Survey”, which also revealed: Forty one percent would miss their own birthday party to see a game. Thirty-nine percent would skip a hot date to see a game. Twenty-five percent have better memory for pro football statistics than they do for birth dates and anniversary dates for family and friends. One in five fans would travel 1,000 miles or more to see their team play an important game.
All I have to say is that I thought baseball fans were fanatics!!!

Edit … should be “they”

I had a horrible thanksgiving. What a way to start the day. My uncle apparently having a heartattack and passing away at around 6:10 am yesterday morning unbelieveable way to start the day. I just can’t understand this at all. I’ve lost my grandfather in 2000, my aunt in 2005, my grandmother in 2006 and now my uncle and 2 other on my mother side/grandfather side probably my mother aunt or my grandfather aunt. I don’t know which is the right term to called them related to me. You wouldn’t believe who still living and I really hate to say this but her time is coming soon and going to be another sad day here. My great grandmother is still living and she’s around 95 years old. My other family members should still be living not my great grandmother and this is so weird.

I’m so sorry, Shad. I know what it is like to lose someone around the holidays. My prayers are with you and I hope you take care of yourself.

Thanks and this was my favorite uncle to. I was very close to my uncle when I was young and always spent a night on the weekend to see my cousin to play video game and go swimming. I hate missing those days

All the uncles that I have on my mother side, he’s the only one that married to my aunt for a long time.

Good morning ITD boys and girls!
Ya know, the older I get, the less and less desire I have to wake up early in the morning for the after-Thanksgiving sales.

Shad – I am so sorry about your uncle. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to lose someone so close on a traditionally happy occasion. My thoughts and prayers and with you and your family.

Good morning Nelly! But did you notice something. I saw your “good morning” post before I posted mine, but look at your time stamp; it says you posted at 10:19? Wooooo… That’s weird….

Thanks my mother told me that 2 of his 4 kids that normal stay with my aunt and uncle are blaming themself on what happen. My aunt and uncle was like up all night and I heard my uncle was taking a little nap.

That weird my last post was after CP.

Good Morning ITD readers and writers!!!! I hope everyone had a great day yesterday…

I am sorry to hear about your day Shad – you and your family are in my prayers 🙂

Okay, something’s going on here. Not only did Nelly’s time stamp list a time that hasn’t even passed yet, Nelly’s “10:19 AM” comment and my two comments don’t even list up on the “Recent Comments” listing. Okay, something is going on with MLB’s servers… Strange…

Okay, I’m out of here for a while. My last comment posted at “10:54 AM.” It’s not even 10:00 AM… I’ll see y’all later… Hopefully MLB’s servers will be working properly again…

Okay, I said I was going to reprise my first song parody on 11/28/08! Now that it’s the OFFICIAL first shopping day of the Christmas season, here is the reprise of my, “Juan Pierre got run over by a reindeer” sung to that lovable novelty Christmas song, Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer. Maybe sung better if Ned is the one singing this song.

Oh, and I don’t care what time stamp I get for this!

Juan Pierre got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from my house Christmas Eve.
You can say there’s no such thing as Santa
But as for me an’ Torre, we believe.

Juan was drinking too much eggnog
All night we laughed and caroused around
But he forgot he has no arm strength
As he tried to pull a weed from the ground

When we found him Christmas morning
We only saw his little head
That was sticking up from the snow
With deer droppings all around him like a bed

Juan Pierre got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from my house Christmas Eve.
You can say there’s no such thing as Santa,
But as for me an’ Torre, we believe.

Now we’re all so proud of Torre
He’s been taking this so well
Mumbling, “PVLs, who’d of thought?”
Playing young kids like he’s under a spell

It’s not Christmas without Slappy
All the family’s dressed in blue
And with his unmatched 5″ hat size
Who do we give his extra hats to?

Juan Pierre got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from my house Christmas Eve.
You can say there’s no such thing as Santa,
But as for me an’ Torre, we believe

Oh, and a note: I didn’t know but I was just guessing on JP’s hat size!!!

Now that is strange CP!!! Good Morning, if it stamps that way!!! Catch up to you later – bye!!!

It’s official – the Christmas season has begun. CP has posted the first song as she will traditionally from now on. May the ITD song writing staff now commence writing Holiday songs involving our beloved Dodger team. Nice going CP!!!!

Shad-very sorry to hear of your loss. Hang in there.
I see where Furcal will probably not return to the Dodgers. O well. I’d like to have him back myself, but when it comes right down to it, how much of the time was he healthy? I do not think enough to risk four more with untold millions.
I ran into a Giants fan from Scottsdale one time, and he made the very good point that we were rooting for laundry. What’s the point of having favorites when they are down the road and gone in a few years. Take Manny. It did not take him long to win us over ( clutch home runs will do that ), but a few months and he’s on to the the next big pay check.
It will be interesting to see how it shakes out with Martin-Loney-Kemp-Ethier.

My condolences on the passing of your uncle Shad. I’m sure he will be missed, but with you always.

To all the rest of ITD, hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I feel sorry for Josh. First we give him a headache, now the McCourt’s a PR nightmare. Hang in there buddy! – I suppose coming over to the dark side is out of the question…

We’ll know the McCourt’s tenure is over when Josh writes his first song.

Helllo everyone. Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving.
Shad, very sorry to hear of your Uncles passing. My condolences and prayers go out to you and your family.
Hang in there!!!

At this point in time, I wish WE signed a couple pitchers from India. Anything to think that McNedCo’s at least doing something positive instead of the SS Frank running over its supporter(s) [you guessed it, its the ship hitting the fan.]

Hey Wally!!!!
How was your Thanksgiving!?!
This blog is on mountain time zone for some reason.

Hello Everybody, I hope your Thansgiving went well.
Shad that is a tough way to start any day. Hang in there
it will only make you stronger.

just checking ~ testing 1,2,3……

Okay – I am going to try this one more time – three times is a charm, right?

Anyhow, jhall ~ Michael and I spent some of yesterday morning watching a special on HBO about the rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan. That was a great special! You have some wonderful traditions and craziness over your Buckeyes in Columbus (as does Michigan). It was a fun morning watching that. If you haven’t seen it, hopefully you will get to – it’s worth watching.

Hey Nelly!! Nice Thanksgiving, thanks. How was yours? Yep, the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry is alot of fun. Glad you enjoyed the special about it. Hang on Sloopy!!! LOL!!!!

I’ve seen it and it is a good special. However, not nearly as fun as living it. HaHa!!!!

Hi-ya Wally & D4!!

Of course this might post yesterday.

jhall – I am sure living it has got to be just so much fun. It’s great to know somebody who is part of it – LOL!!!!

enchanted – you weren’t up there earlier. I guess ITD wanted to go Mountain Time Zone today. Well, us west coasters will get to experience yours and dodger4life’s time zone for a while. However, this is very strange. I keep having to check my clock to make sure it didn’t change back.

See Dodger4life wasn’t up there earlier ethier. On my screen he just showed up – wow -this is definitely Twilight Zone stuff….. 🙂

Dodger4life – how are you? Did you get any sleep?

A couple of hours, I’m good Nelly, You?

I love a good laugh, Funny stuff…. 🙂

Thanks Nell’!!! I guess that’s why I love college football. The rivalries are very passionate and very deeply ingrained.

Hey Beav and D4L!!!!!!!!!!

Same thing here Nell’.

Funny stuff happening with the blog. Keep getting submission errors.

I keep getting a submission error on top of the fact that jhall’s posts are now scattered among enchanted’s and dodger4life’s posts, which they weren’t originally. Also, the recent posts bar to the left has me followed by knouffbrock, which it should be jhall – this is just crazy stuff happening.

Thanks for your help in keeping this Blog the most fun blog around…. 🙂

We keep getting submission errors – are you?

jhall – Dodger4life says to say “hi” – LOL!!!!!

Life is good today…. 🙂

Hey Nell’, it must be the Tink Effect. LOL!!!!!

Far out!!!!

I think the blog is confusing the time zones!!!

Good afternoon, evening or perhaps morning…….the way the times are stamped, who knows! Is this what they mean when they call it “Black Friday”!

Wow, I posted after all of you and my time was an hour ahead. It’s actually close to the real time here.

Freaky Friday Trumom!!! LOL!!!

This is so weird! My name doesn’t even come up on the recent posts.

Here’s one that’s GUARANTEED to bring back memories, and you don’t have to choose between it and a free agent. Sweet – Little Willy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3iHFizLOh_E&feature=related

West coast, east coast
Wifey Jamie, Jamie wears the crown, she’s the queen of Dodgertown.

Under a mil she’s feeling alright

Hey now, pay now, pay now hooooow?
‘Cuz wifey Jamie, Jamie won’t stay home
But you can’t send Jamie back, Jamie won’t go
Try telling Frank about it but, oh no
Wifey Jamie, Jamie won’t stay home.
West coast, east coast
Wifey Jamie really drives ‘em wild with her off the cuff style
Inside, outside
Jamie talks so lamey with her contract bashin’ curt polite smile
Mama done curse Neddy down through the hall
Cuz none of Neddy’s men can play ball at all
Hey now, pay now, pay now hooooow?
‘Cuz wifey Jamie, Jamie won’t stay home
But you can’t send Jamie back, Jamie won’t go
Try telling Frank about it but, oh no
Wifey Jamie, Jamie won’t stay home.

NedCo – Just open mouth and insert foot.™

Now there are two of jhall’s posts that weren’t here earlier.

We have entered ITD Twilight Zone – where the strange and scary things happen

LOL!!!! that was good Dodger4life – Amazing what’s happened to John Travolta since that show – just awesome!!!!

Hello everyone, I hope everyone had a great turkey day!! Shad I am sorry for your lost!!!

Talking Dodger baseball… it seems that Furcal is gone, what about signing Viquel to a 1 year deal…he hit .313 over his last 115 at bats last year and is still the best defensively….If Dejesus is ready at the All Star break, you bring him up and let him learn under Omar…I know he is an ex-Giant, but he is a true professional.

Just a thought!!!

I really am amazed that Jamie McCourt would be that naive to think that Dodgers fans would want 50 baseball fields instead of a bona fide ML ballplayer….I have to give props to Plaschke and Simers for jumping all over this article…

Please sell the Dodgers and with your profits open a non-profit charity. That it seems is what you really want to run!!!

this is whacked out Friday!!

ooooohhhhhh freaky!!!! trublu’s post showed up out of nowhere, – maybe we are experiencing an ITD version of “Back to the Future”

Freaky Friday trumom was not there – lol!!!! This is just plain freaky!!! That is a good word for it jhall, but where did you come from ?- LOL!!!! I know, Columbus, Ohio – LMAO!!!!!!

Okay – how did Ramslover end up here ahead of me and Dodger4life when I posted at 4:19pst, mind you—–dododododododododod- This is just play trippy 🙂

See, and I already saw the Charlie Brown clip – when it was posted after me, but now I am before it….. This didn’t even take mind altering drugs or alcohol to make this day feel like a total trip.

Dodger4life – this is just trippy that I have already seen the video, but it’s posted after me.

enchanted – fabulous song!!!!!!!


Does’nt this remind you of the McCourt’s and our Championship?


Allright I’ll play along……..

Awesome E…..

Dodger4life – that explains it all!!!! ITD has been taken over by aliens – LMAO!!!!!


I am going to a highschool football game. Have fun playing the ITD version of the Twilight Zone. I will be back for late night ITD – take care and stay warm (that’s my goal)

Hang in the Oregon
GO DUCK’S!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GO DODGER’S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The = There

WE LOVE OUR DODGER’S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GO DODGER’S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The biggest problem with the McCourts is that they want to be celebrities, like being the owners of a Major League Baseball team isn’t enough, and not just any baseball team, but the LOS ANGELES DODGERS. They’re just confused, when they bought the Dodgers they thought it was the Hollywood Dodgers, we have enough celebrities, plenty.

I have to show some love to Plaschke, he was fair and reasoned, it was a very thought out piece, he could have easily gone on his soap box, but he didn’t, good job. To be fair to the McCourts, it isn’t like they haven’t been willing to open up the wallet and get free agents, but when the GM comes back with crap [Pierre, Schmidt, Jones, Loaiza, Furcal(injured 2 out of 3 yrs), Penny], I’d be gun shy too.

Now, like ramslover, there is nothing wrong with bargain shopping just in case the big name free agents fall though, here are some names:

SP – Randy Johnson
RP – Juan Cruz
2B/3B – Felipe Lopez
SS/2B – Omar Vizquel
OF – Bobby Abreu (I’d take him over Manny)
OF – Juan Rivera
C – Dave Ross (good backup)
SP – Carl Pavano/Bartolo Colon (minor league contracts, we always to find something good in the scrap heap)

Hey Nelly, did you just post from the future?

Hey everyone,
I see were still having technical difficulties 🙂

What’s going on North 🙂

Nothing much, D4L, just got back from watching my Alma Mater trounce Palm Springs in HS Football action. How are you?

Good Evening ITD readers and writers!!!
It looks like everything has calmed down since our ITD Twilight Episode which lasted almost all day.

Well, maybe it isn’t fine. I am still on mountain time I guess. It’s only 10:32 pst.

I’m doing just fine North, We were bust earlier but then we hit the twilight zone:)

Nelly is lost in outer space somewhere…..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0NYKWLMgx0
Here is something to listen to Nelly

Thanks Dodger4life and nsblues for keeping me informed of my out of time zone experience – LOL!!!!

Your Back, Cool 🙂

Hey that one went through! I think I have to wait until I catch up to mountain time, then I can post again until someone from the pst posts, then I have to wait again.

That is not how I typed my last post that is just how it came up….

Just stopping by to say hello & goodnight night!
I hope everyone had a nice turkey day and black friday.
Shad I’m sorry to hear about your Uncle. My prayers are with you & your family. I lost my Uncle last year at this time as well. It was tough. He was pretty much my Dad since I was 10, so I feel for you. The good thing is you have his memories and in time you will smile when you think of him and your times together. I know that happened to me yesterday for the 1st time in awhile.
I’ll try to keep it short. You see my Uncle was this big strong sea man and was a Captan of steamships. He is from England and very tough and sometimes gruff. But he had a heart of gold. A couple of years ago we are driving to Roseville, Ca. for Thanksgiving where my Cousin (His daughter lives). There was very bad traffic and what should of taken about 1 & 1/2 hours took almost 5.
We had been driving from separate areas but the length of the drive was the same as we were in the same traffic, so I was not in a good mood either. We pulled up just behind him and I got out of the car and was trying to adjust my attitude and help him out of the car. I say Happy Thanksgiving!! His response was “Oh bloody hell! What’s so happy about it?” and walks past me. It just cracked me up. Just a classic.
While in traffic yesterday I relived that moment and brought a smile to my face and made me laugh.
I do hope everyone is doing well out there and having a wonderful weekend. I saw a piece on the news about how people can get bummed during the holidays. If your reading this and that’s you, all I can say is you’re not alone and try to find things that are special for you and do them. Be active with people. Help out in a soup kitchen, go visit with someone in a nursing home or something like that. Have some spiced apple cider and enjoy the warmness. Go for a walk with a friend. Take in a holiday service at a church nearby your house. You know, the simple things.
I used to struggle with sadness this time of year and those types of things have helped make me really enjoy the holidays.
Sorry to go on long but I babble when I’m tired!

I am on mountain time too now.

Okay that is weird. I see what you guys have been talking about!
My post was at the correct time for here in California, but it was placed before other posts that I read before I did my post.

Barstow whooped on Palm Springs tonight I take it North?

Everything is posting an hour later now? Hmmmmm – I think this one goes into the ITD history books as the strangest day.

I think it is taking the time you post and place it by the time whether it is MT or PT. I’m at 12:13 and it will go before D4’s @12:14 about Boise beating Fresno today.

Boise State beat Fresno State- 61 to 10 today.

Now they are hoping to play USC in the Rose Bowl.

I’d like to see that but it is not going to happen.

You are our historian,
Mark this date in The ITD history Book’s 🙂

Cool! It makes it seem like I know what people are going to say before they say it!
Like @ 12:23 Nelly is going to talk about the Fresno state fans in shock and it being talked about in the local news. Even though the time stamp for this post will be 12:18 which is the correct time by my computer!
It’s like Back To The Future!!! I feel like Marty!! Wheres Doc??!!!

The Fresno State fans are in shock – they keep talking about it on our local news,and it will be in the paper tomorrow too (after they talk about the Merced High game of course).


Here’s one that may descibe what has happened today – LOL!!!!!

Dodger4life – you are locked out again – I’m sorry. I will try to find your keys – LOL!!!!!!

dcollins – this is a total trip!!!!!!!

Where’s Marty McFly when you need him?

Nelly, you are an hour ahead of me! I’m replying to your posts at 1:18 & 1:22 and my post will be at 12:27 and go in front of yours.
Very strange indeed!! Also sort of fun!

dcollins ~ Not that time it didn’t – your last post posted in the mountain time zone too – uh oh!!!

Yikes!! Now I’m with your time!!!
Okay I’ve got to hit the hay now. I can’t take this anymore!!! Just to weird!
Do you think they are getting back at us for the songs???

Some feel that is definitely a theory 🙂 Good night dcollins – take care…..

That was way too funny DCollins Have a wonderful night.

You guys were talking comedians earlier.
Brian Regan is awesome. He is great visually as well as well as his humor as he has great expressions.
We are going to be seeing Ron White in San Jose in January.
He’s funny.

I think I see black helicopters above my house nelly!! Oh no I hear the door banging down! They are also coming in the windows! There are a bunch of men dressed in blue & white Dodg……

Im hopeing they take you to Wherever all the great Dodger’s are DCollins 🙂

Whomever is minding the store at MLBblogs Happy holiday’s 🙂

LMAO!!!! Please let us out of this time warp – please!!!!!!!!

dcollins – That was just hilarious!!! I took me 15 minutes to get back on — another problem I have been having along with other people – submission errors

There coming to take us away, ha,ha………..to a happy place where life is beautiful all the time…….

Okay – so this time it posted the correct time. So, does that mean I am fixed – LMAO!!!!!!!

We can only hope Nelly 🙂

Dodger4life – are we okay now? It looks like it may be over…..That was on trippy ride there for a while.

Oh no!!!!!! maybe not 😦

Good night Dodger4life – this has been was crazy day!! Take care and God Bless!!!!

hey, my good night post posted at 3:08, which is the right time, but I am posting after you dodger4life – just craziness I tell you – LOL!!!!!

This locksmith is cutting into my charitable donations 🙂

Good Night Nelly, God Bless you and your family 🙂

Good Night good people minding the store God bless you too:)

Good Night ITD God Bless us all…..

May God Bless Our Beloved Dodger’s also 🙂

GO DODGER’S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I miss my Dodger’s baseball 🙂 I dont remember #32 too young 🙂

Good morning. This is a test. It is 7:30 a.m. here and I want to see what time is posted.

Hey, maybe things are back to normal and Freaky Friday is gone forever!

So, is Back to the Future, Freaky Friday, Twilight Zone, Time Warp over yet? Please say it is………… It was great visiting the Mountain Time Zone, but I really want to be back in my own time zone now thank you very much.

So far so good I see 🙂

Dodger4life – I hope you got some sleep.

trublue – that was just trippy yesterday, fun, but very weird.

“Give me your tired, your old,
Your befuddled masses yearning to rake green,
The wretched refuse of this year’s free agent pool.
Send these, the worthless, pop fly-lossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the green girdle.”
– Ned Colletti

Deck the fields with aged jolly
Tis the season for Ned’s follies
Contract now your vet’ran pleasures
See the ancient player treasures

Good Morning, enchanted!!!! It looks like you got up in a very festive mood this morning – nice job!!!!! LOL!!!!!

Enchanted ~ All I can say is “Fa-la-la-la-la-la-LA-LA-LA! LOL

I think we can officially say the time warp is over – Thank Goodness!!!

oh no!!!!! It did it again – crap!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s posting an hour later for me again – it is only 9:30 in California, right? I had to open my big mouth didn’t I? I couldn’t just leave it alone. Geez!!!!!!!

LMAO!!!!!!! enchanted – That is absolutely incredible in any time zone – OMG!!!!!!!! How your mind works sometimes just simply amazes me to no end. The third verse from the bottom is my favorite if I had to pick one – just classic and pretty much how I feel about those two. ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!!! STANDING OVATION FOR YOU!!!

Well, my last comment posted at the right time pst, but now it looks like I can read enchanted’s mind. Boy, I wish I could – I mean who wouldn’t want to know what’s going on inside his head?

I think they would want to examine many of our heads, but I could imagine that you would be the first in line – LOL!!!!!

enchanted – I think you are in the time warp now. Your posts are all coming up an hour later (which to you is in your own time zone). Mine have appeared so far to go back to the pacific time zone.

Outstanding Beav!!! Nice song also!!! LOL my friend!!!

I see we still have a time warp!!!

Great poem from Beav coming up!! LOL!!!

TWow, this time warp stuff is . . . like something out of Star Trek.
And speaking of old TV shows, I was “prompted” to write a little ditty based on Green Acres. (There must be something creative in the air, or maybe I just haven’t anything better to do before I give the economy a tiny kick.)
Green Girdle is the place to be
R.E. developing is the life for me
Land spreading out so far and wide
Keep Old Boston,
just give me that countryside.
L. A. is where I’d rather stay
Among the stars is where we want to play
I just adore a new stadium view
Money, I love you, but give me JP and Andruw.
The scores
The stores
Fresh air
We haven’t a prayer
You are my team. The fans want to scream.
Green Girdle, we are there!

I posted in PST, and it’s so confusing. Feeling like Alice in Wonderland . . . .

LMAO Diggie!!! Good job!!!

Twas the night before Winter Meetings, and all through Frank’s house
Not an outfielder looming, except for The Mouse.
The turned out pockets were hung by the chimney with care
In hopes no guaranteed contracts would find there way there.
The young guns were nestled all snug in the fold
“cuz none had yet been traded or sold
And Jamie at her functions, and Frank in denial
Said 30 millions to much for Manny without as much as a smile
When out on the mound our hopes were aflutter
With visions of AJ & CC, we’d like one or the utter
Away our hopes blew up in a flash
“cuz Frank said to Ned, “We ain’t got the cash.”
The moon on the breast of our crest-fallen hearts
We knew then and there Ned would just get us old farts.
When what to our pondering eyes should appear?
The plight of accounting saying Frank’s in arrears.
With a little Grecian Formula for the old gray beards
This off-season could be far worse than we feards
Slower than molasses on a cold winter’s day
Ned whistled and shouted and bade them to play
Now Johnson and Brocail and Durham and Moises
Sign Aurilia and Ausmus and a few other choices.
From the bottom of the list at the bottom the well
They may not be pretty, but they sure look like hell
Like dry leaves that before the wild hurricane go
Its for sure that the vet’rans Ned gets will all blow
So up in the high decks, fans knew what to do
Resurrect the Dead Horsemen, these guys look like glue
And then in a twinkling, a rumor I heard
We’ll go after Hudson, but I knew it absurd
As I looked at the line-up and fretted around
I knew soon the basement our team would be bound
But how Joe’s eyes twinkle as he leans ‘gainst the rail
And laughs, how he laughs at Ned chasing his tail
His folksy rapport, his droll little speaches
Won’t matter at all to these old sons of beeches
Now Druw’s in the Dominican Republic I hear
Hoping his once powerful swing would appear
And Juanpy’s still pouting, he’s really been stuck
I know that it’s Christmas, but I don’t give a [beep]
While up in the booth Vin Scully will say
We had a proud organization back in the day
Remember them fondly when we start to lose
And not all the yelling, cat-calls and boos
So remember we will though there’s still two more stanzas
I’ve run out of rhyme, so they’re not in my planza
But I heard Ned exclaim as he flew off to Las Vego
To our chances next season say hasta luego.

I’m sure Josh, Ned, Frank and Jamie would like to have my head examined Nells!!

Good afternoon ITD, has anyone else seen the helicopter’s.

I hope today is going better?

I cant stay long as I am doing my Saturday beer and football soon.

Hooray for beer, I sure can use one 🙂

Hi Nelly ~What’s going on E, great stuff from you both 🙂

Enchanted ~ thanks for making my day very enjoyable.


Schmidt can now throw the ball farther than Pierre 🙂

Hey E once again, I Logged off and back on …..

Fantastic Diggie!!!! Whichever time zone I am in right now, I have no clue.

Wally/jhall – How are you doing? or should I say how are you going to be? LOL!!!!!!

Dodger4life – have fun with beer and football – that works regardless of time zone.

I’m just full of the Winter Meetings spirit Diggie!
…or as least full of something that rhymes with Schmidt.

I’d say “hey” D4, but I don’t know what time zone you’d hear it in. LOL!

Enchanted really got the ” Old Bat On The Ball ” with that pitch. Just listen to the crowd chant his name…. It is like the Beattles have just landed 🙂 This is one hot Christmas album folk’s. Hurray now while supplies last 🙂

Well, it looks like Dodger4life is all screwed up now. I just posted at 1:34, and he is still in the 2 o’clock hour.

See ya everyone~ Have fun I’m off to the beer and football place 🙂

Oh enchanted!!!!! I just noticed your cd for sale – LMAO!!!!! Fantastic X 3 today!!!!!

Iam trying to test this new system by getting locked out .

System check 123……..

Anybody out there???

dodger4life – Where’s my drink?

See, now I am back in my own time zone, and now everyone else is an hour ahead. Is it me or them?

Have a drink for me Dodger4life – this is just trippy!!!!

Hi, I’m here. But I will probably get my post way up the ladder.

It’s just an hour ahead.

No record of posting but it is here.

Hi Trueblue, I have’nt talk to you for a while 🙂

It has been so strange the last few days, dodger4life. Was reading all the stuff from earlier today and last night.

I am going to the Red Eye saloon and Grill in a minute so I cant stay long.

I think I nedd a drink, too, Dodger4life! Enjoy yourself and I’ll see you later.

Yea, I was having a conversation by myself this morning and got locked out lol!!!!

See ya True,
Have a good day anyway’s and yes have a drink 🙂

It looks like you’re still here by yourself. My name isn’t even coming up….lol

Nelly~ Marty MacFly is on his way LOL!!!!

I will do that Nelly~ You have some lemonade with true for me 🙂

I sure will – Have fun!!! Talk to you later, depending on time zone.

Okay, it looks like I am back in the mountain time zone again. It’s only 2:44 here in California.

Good afternoon ITD boys and girls!
It looks like the time stamps are all wrong again! Right before I left yesterday, I thought the times corrected itself, but apparently, NOT! I’ll be curious to see what MLB will give for this time stamp. It’s 3:49 in California…

Well, it gave me the right time, but Nelly, you’re stuck in the Mountain Time Zone. This is too weird. I never did like The Twilight Zone…

Nelly – You’re right. Perhaps all these time problems we’ve been having have to do with the new security team trying to confuse us. Maybe NSB will draw us a picture of our latest mascot: Bizarro (as in the Smallville variety)! All he’d have to do is draw Bizarro with an ITD RULES T-shirt!

And the funniest thing about this particular post is that it’ll appear BEFORE your “4:12 PM” comment!

good eveing all. I trust that you all are enjoying the extended weekend 🙂 I know I am.

…..has anyone seen dcollins since last night when the helicopters landed? He hasn’t been around, and it’s only a matter of time before they come to get the rest of us. Maybe we need to contact Area 51 to see if they have had any suspicious activity surrounding the Los Angeles Dodgers. Oh wait! what am I talking about, we have Frank as our owner, Ned as our GM and Joe as our manager – we are surrounded by suspicious activity. Maybe it’s the new security team trying out a new system. Maybe if they confuse us enough we will just go away. What they don’t know is we live for stuff like this……….the bizarre and ridiculous. With Andruw, JP, Schmidt, etc., we have learned to deal with the bizarre and ridiculous.

Hey CP! The system doesn’t allow me to post when I have a time stamp before the pacific coast time. I get submission errors. This one will probably stamp an hour later, and once it realizes it, it locks me out until my time lapses again. Funny you mention Smallville because maybe we can get Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luther) to help us out of this time warp. He is a huge Dodger fan as he was at Under the Lights with us.

Now that one showed up with the right time stamp, but it will only be a matter of time before I go back to the mountain time zone. It’s been happening this whole time.

CP – you and just switched places – LMAO!!!!!!!!!!

dcollins – Where are you? Where are you dcollins? Give us a sign, any sign…….. Who is next? No one knows…… but if you hear helicopters, run as fast as you can and hide………it could save your life.

Amy! How are you my girl and fellow Ethieraholic??? Some of us are okay, but then some of us (like Nelly) is stuck in the Mountain time zone. See her “4:12 PM” comment? That was there before I made my three previous comments! The time stamps have been weird since yesterday…

Oh, wow! Just as soon as I open my big mouth and say that my posts are showing up with the correct time stamp, that last one time warps me in the Mountain Time Zone too! Too weird!

CP! I’m well. How are you?? is the job search still on? or did we land something? I wish you all the best!!
I am enjoying mommy’s leftovers and such. Always nice to eat turkey sandwiches. To me, they are a lot better than warm turkey out of the over. I like it cold 🙂 And the pie…Gotta love pie! Mom makes them from scratch and are the best ones ever.

dcollins……where are you? any sign of dcollins? Oh no!!…..be on the look out for those helicopters. Who will be next? Nobody knows.

dodger4life – there is no sign of him anywhere. Where could he have gone? dcollins…. where are you?

Good Evening ITD readers, writers and others!!!

Just checking in to see if we are back to normal. I guess normal is a relative term when talking about us, isn’t it?

Let’s give it a go, 9:13 in Boise

Oklahoma State, has to play defense if they want to win, but alot of scoring 🙂

Hey Amy!
I’m sorry it’s taking me so long to answer you back. But the weirdest thing happened after I asked you my question to you and you answered me. I got a “submission error” and couldn’t post at all! I could read, but I couldn’t post. So I just got off my computer until now. But in answer to your question, yes, the job search still on. Looking for a job has become a chore to me. I mean, looking for a job in the best of times is a full-time job, but in times like these, it’s nothing but a chore. But thx for wishing me all the best!!

Well Nelly, are you back on? I just saw your e-mail and replied back to you. I know, it’s a reply you sent over 4 hours ago, but like I told Amy, I got frustrated and just got off the computer until now. And yes, normal is a relative term when talking about ITD – at least lately it has been…

This Oaklahoma/Oaklahoma St. game is just crazy!!!

Hey Dodger4life! Some weird happenings here in ITDland, hasn’t it been?

My Nellygirl is back! And in the right time zone! Well, for now…

CP – I am here, and it appears everything is okay for now anyway.

Dodger4life is here safe and sound, but where is dcollins? We haven’t heard from him since the helicopters were surrounding his house late last night/early this morning.

I just hope Amy doesn’t think I was “blowing her off” by not answering her question right away. Amy, whenever you get back here, NO, I was NOT blowing you off!

Did she know we were in the middle of a time warp? It didn’t seem like she did.

Nelly, I don’t know if she knew that we were in the time warp. I tried to tell her, and maybe she caught onto it, maybe she didn’t. I just hope she didn’t go away mad…

Hello, hello??? I’m just testing to make sure that everyone is here okay…

Oh, Nelly. I just had a thought! And a very scary thought indeed. Good ole Frank isn’t testing us tonight by contemplating moving the Dodgers to somewhere in the Mountain Time Zone??? Ugh, perish the thought…

CP~ everyone seem’s to be catching on pretty quick.

I wonder if when you are taken away by helicopter, Do they Brainwash you? I sure hope they did’nt give DCollins some mind altering drug’s.
And make him think he is a Gnat’s fan now.

Now that would be scary!! I guess that depends on where you live – Dodger4life and enchanted may benefit from that move.

Bring them To Boise I would enjoy that lol!!!!


Dodger4life – I can’t seem to find him anywhere. I have asked him to give us a sign that he is at least alive, but nothing……..just silence…..

Well Dodger4life, dcollins did say that there were a bunch of men dressed in blue & white! I would hope that dcollins isn’t being brainwashed to become a gnats fan!

But I’ll ask too, DCOLLINS, WHERE ARE YOU???


Potatoes and beer is all you will need!!!!

Dodger4life!!! LMAO!!!

Then again, there is New Mexico…….

Oh no, not New Mexico Nelly! I can’t even fathom my Dodgers being that far away from me! But, if that ever did happen, well, I know how Dodger4life and Enchanted feel! And how Brooklynites felt 50 years ago…

But Dodger4life, I might be able to handle the Boise Dodgers. Hmmm…. Still sounds funny to me…

You can have your potatoes mashed, smashed, fried, baked, double baked, scalloped, and shredded……

Oh, and I forgot about jhall, scurtis, boblee, and every other outside-of-California Dodger fan feels…

In New Mexico you could have tacos and beer as opposed to potatoes and beer – hmmmmm!!!!!

Don’t forget about Dodger Hash Browns and Dodger Home Fries!

I will be selling them Nelly 🙂 When the copter’s come I bet they take you to an undisclosed location, where they confine you to a small space, filled with Gnat memorabilia. They pipe in Gnat reruns until you reform. Hang in the DCollins
We are all behind ya 🙂

Ah, got it now Nelly! Tacos and beer!

We allready have purple potatoes. Blue should’nt be that hard. We could really use more ballfield’s for our park system.

I wonder when Josh posts a new thread, if he’s going to address the time warp issues we’ve been having (until now). Now just watch, as soon as I say, “until now” I’ll go back to the MT zone… Ooooh, perish the thought…

Nope, still the right time zone…

Every Friday in New Mexico, could be Freaky Friday Night…

I already live that nightmare – it’s called my son’s room – LOL!!! The smell is horrible too. LMAO!!!!! Oh dcollins!!!! please hang in there…..we will come, eventually 🙂

Dodger4life – Talk to Jamie about more ball fields… She’s an expert about such things…

You already have the blue football field, so a blue baseball should be a piece of cake.

Maybe DCollins was to great a force to be recond with maybe the’ve reformed 🙂

Dcollins – Hang in there buddy! Your wifey needs ya! We need ya!

I do believe he reformed his wife……so maybe they took him for experimentation.

I am sure they got an earful about a lot of stuff 🙂

He is ITD’s Head of Security, maybe we have our own helicopter’s now 🙂

Oh, I forgot that dcollins is ITD’s Head of Security! That explains it! And the men dressed in blue and white!

You are in New Mexico again, say hi to Enchanted 🙂

Boise State would whip USC 🙂

No doubt about that!!!!!

uh oh!!! I am back in the mountain time zone – time warp here we go again………. HELP!!!!!

Oh, no Nelly! Just when things were going so well…

Nelly, I just joined you in the Mountain Time Zone!!!

Uh oh, it’s getting awfully quiet here in ITDland…

You know New Mexico is home to Roswell – hmmmm!!! Maybe this is enchanted’s way of messing with our minds. Nah – he just writes songs – those mess with our minds enough as it is…… LMAO!!!!!!!

Dodger4life – I think Boise would have a shot at any of these top teams right now, don’t you?

Well Nelly & Dodger4life, I’ve gotta go. I’m running the visuals at church tomorrow and I’ve got to get up early. I’ll catch up with y’all later…

Next time you post a new thread, can you please enlighten us as to why we keep on getting stuck in time warps???

I am going to plead the 5th 🙂
We have problems with the line from a bigger school. We allway’s have a shot but reallistically USC would be difficult.

Have a wonderful evening and day tommorrow CP 🙂
God Bless and Good-Night 🙂

Yes, I don’t think it would be easy ethier, but I think they would be good competition for any of the big schools. Isn’t it true many schools don’t want to play Boise because it’s not worth the risk of losing? That is a compliment for sure.

Good Night CP!!! Take care and God Bless!!!

So, you are now on mountain time too? Isn’t this just a bizarre problem to be having?

Well, technically, you really are in the mountain time zone….duh!!!!! LMAO!!!!!

dcollins……..where….are…..you? Hello, are you there dcollins? nothing, just silence……………………..

Dodger4life – Did you get locked out again? It will take another hour to find your keys. That means I will lose my keys and be locked out next, not to return for an hour as well. dcollins – hang in there for a little while longer. If you are there, please give us a sign you are still a Dodger fan.

GO DODGER’S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday Night Live, There is absolutly nothing else on…

You know, maybe dcollins hasn’t been the only one taken. We haven’t heard from Dodgereric since this whole time warp thing started, and who better to take for experimentation then him. I mean think about all the knowledge he has. I mean did any of us know a pregnant goldfish was a twit,and did any of us know that a group of unicorns was called a blessing. On top of all that, his knowledge of baseball history is astounding. And think about it, dcollins a Northern California Dodger fan and Dodgereric a Southern California Dodger fan – what a perfect combination for experimentation.


Greatest baseball play ever!!!!

Thanks Dodger4life for that video clip – I do like Rick Monday. He’s a #16 too, but that clip is just great!!!!

Hello? just checking to see if I’ve been locked out……don’t mind me…. 🙂

GO DODGER’S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thinking Dodger Blue
The whole year through
365 Days a year
7 Days a week
24 hours a day
There’s nothing better
Than bleeding Dodger Blue

Is this a sign I need to change time zones?

Good night ITD readers,writers and others. Hopefully all will be right with ITD soon. It’s been fun, but it’s time to go back to the way it used to be. Take care and God Bless!!

Sign Manny, Sign CC, bring back our Youn Gun’s, Fill the rest of the hole’s and I will reform…..

Anything it take’s to win a Championship???

Hey my last post was stamped at the right time – there is still hope for a normal (ITD normal) tomorrow. Good Night again!!!


Her you go…… More of the same 🙂

GO DODGER’S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


My grandad the last of 9 kids during the great depression.
One of the toughest men, I’ve ever known, served in WW2.
Cried when he heard this man sing this song.

Good-Night ITD, and GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!!

I leave you with Ray Charles~America 🙂

Juan Pierre is the best outfielder in baseball.
Ned made the correct decision in signing him as well as all his other moves…
Every move of every game that Joe made were the correct moves.
The kids are finally getting it. They are beginning to execute.
The McCourts are correct with their thoughts and observations on all things baseball related. It is insensitive to spend money on free agents when people are losing their homes and jobs, while at the same time charging higher ticket prices for a seat to a ST game and a towel is an awesome decision.
PVL’s are the glue from the Dead Horsemen that held this team together last year.
Go Frank, Jamie, Ned, and Joe!!!

Oh and go Dodgers…

I have a splitting headache and I don’t know why.

Is anyone else out there going shopping for Black friday tomorrow??? I’m going to hit up Best Buy!!!

dcollins – what happened to you? OMG!!!!!! Dodger4life – something happened to dcollins. He actually thinks like “they” do…… Oh no!!! what now?

I’m feeling verr yyy sleeppp

Dodger4life – Where are you? Did you lose your keys again? It’s dcollins……something has happened to him. He’s not the same.

OMG!!!! He actually thinks JP can play the outfield. Something is seriously wrong with him. We never thought it would be this bad.

Where are you Dodger4life? Dodger4life where did you go?………Oh no!!!! not him now………….

Good morning ITD. I see things were still strange last night. Wonder if this will ever get straightened out.

So far, so good. It is the right time for me!

Still no Dodger4life? I can only imagine…….

Good Morning, ITD readers and writers! So far everything seems fine, but I thought that yesteday morning, too.

I hope everyone is enjoying their morning.

First, the name changes…….and now people are disappearing………something very odd going on here!

…..maybe the Invasion of the Name Changers and the Time Warp are part of the same plan……

Dodger4life is still MIA………….Did they exchange dcollins for Dodger4life? And who knows what happened to Dodgereric/Ward dear?……….He’s been missing for days now every since that last slice of pumpkin pie was offered. Oh where could they be? Then there is what to do with dcollins who has been brainwashed into thinking like “they” do. Oh, what’s to come of ITD?

Is anyone here on ITD? It looks like we’re still having the same problems as before…

I noticed that dcollins’ name showed back up, but take a look at what he said. He said, “Is anyone else out there going shopping for Black friday tomorrow??? …” That comment posted on November 30, 2008, 1:25 AM! November 30th! Black Friday was November 28th! Again, strange things are going on here…

CP – are you still there? It appears everything is doing well now, but I haven’t posted much today, and it seems to start flipping out when I have done a few posts.

72 Days until Spring Training
Until then we will be praying
That our young guns will be playing
Furcal will be staying
Manny or CC, Frank will be paying
Andruw and JP we’ll be trading
72 Days until Spring Training
Until then we will be praying

Thinking Dodger Blue
The whole year through!!!

How is everyone this evening?
I would have to assume the time warp is finally over 🙂

Nelly! Just got back onto the computer. I got your reply to my e-mail. Thx! Hopefully, things will go smoother!

How was your Sunday? I spent some a school setting up for Monday. I figure if I can get through Monday, I can worry about the rest of the week tomorrow after school.

CP – it’s not fixed!!! I posted at 6:48 – oh no!!!!

Oh, it was fine. We went to church this morning. Like I told you last night, I was running the visuals this morning, so I woke up early. Jim wasn’t singing today, so HE got to sleep in! The rest of the day consisted of posting our podcast, and then hanging our Christmas lights (outdoors). No, we haven’t got a tree yet. We probably won’t until next week or so.

Nelly! You were 6:49 PM and I’m 6:51 PM! Oh no, we’re going to the dark side!!! Well, if I have to go to the dark side, at least I have company!!! 🙂

northstateblues thinks this issue might be because mlb.com is trying a new profile program. He’s probably right because the last time they tried to update something, we had name change issues and most everyone had to start signing in.

LOL!!!! This is just bizarre that is happening to some, but not all, and that is what is screwing everything up. If it just stayed mountain time, and everyones posts were stamped mountain time, then it wouldn’t make any difference. It’s the back and forth between time zones that is probably shutting the system down and locking us out with submission errors.

Yeah Nelly, it’s that back and forth that is the problem. Like you, I could live with the mountain time zone, but I don’t like it shutting us down! Let’s see what this does…

Again Nelly, you can ask your new friend Michael Rosenbaum for his take on this “Bizarro” mess! 🙂

It seems like once you are locked out, it takes about 15-20 minutes to get back on. Be on the lookout for helicopters…..

dcollins – are you okay?

dodger4life – where are you?

dodgereric/Ward Dear – I hope you are okay?

Good Night CP!!!! Talk to you tomorrow 🙂

Good evening/night/morning? This is really beginning to bother me. We have a lot to discuss when the winter meetings begin.

First, they took away me “e”s and now, I’m not even listed as a recent entry! I think I’m disappearing!!

Yea, I made it as an entry! A little late, but I’m alive!

Submission error! Give me a break. Our men are disappearing!!!!

Now, I posted ahead of you….right time, too. This really sucks!!!!

The Invasion of the Body (boy) Snatchers!!!! The women are left to rule the world!!! LOL

I’m still posting at the right time, but ahead of you. This is soooooooo weird!


some reading if you happen to get locked out with a submission error – Schmidt’s in the article. He might actually pitch……someday 🙂

Is the Invasion of the Name Changer and The Time Warp part of the same plan?
Here’s a (fun) theory –

“NedVision – The Transformed Dodger Fan: The Experiment”
Participants: ITD Bloggers
Testers: Dr. FNJ
Objective: To transform Dodger Fan thinking to that of the current Dodger Management

“Where the Boys Are” – Obviously not here – LOL!!!!

So, if I post at the actually time of my previous post which is an hour later, what will happen – nobody knows but mlblogs.

My time is right, so far. I’m testing this one.

Spoke too soon! Now I’m an hour ahead.

You something even funnier, my posts are 3 minutes shy of an hour over – meaning, my computer clock say 8:58, but it will post at 9:55 – is this the most bizarre issue or what?

I think this is all Enchanted’s fault!!! LOL

Can we please have our ITD blog back? This time warp stuff was fun while it lasted, but I want it back to normal. We will have Dodger business to talk about tomorrow as I’m sure their business at hand of finding players will resume as well.

Good Morning, ITD readers and writers!!!
71 more days until Spring Training!!!!!!
Let’s hope we get some things straightened out this week in the business of the Dodgers 🙂

Good morning. Please, please get this mess straightened out, Josh! Find out what’s wrong and fix it if you can.

Goooood morning ITD!!!!

What in the wide, wide world of sports is-a goin’ on here?

It has been a crazy weekend. The time zones are off kilter and half of the time we are getting locked out with the ever popular “submission error”. All the men have disappeared, Dodgereric. Boy, am I glad to see you back!!! Dcollins and dodger4life were here for a bit, but that is it!

It all started on Black Friday and we started calling it Freaky Friday.

Well, let me check…………..yep, still a man.

My router blew up on Friday at some time. Matt was bummed out because his on-line gaming went away and I was going thru ITD withdrawls all weekend. We should get a new one today sometime I hope.

I just went back a dozen or so posts and caught a whiff of what you’re talking about. When I get some time I’ll look back further. Are there any songs for me to post?

Ward Dear……I am soooo glad to see you!!!!!
Talk about withdrawls……….it was awful!!!!!!
Dodger4life, dcollins and I were having fun with our time warp issues, though. I am glad everything is well with you 🙂

Check, I’ll take care of those later.

It looks like we’re still stagnant in the FA/trade market. Aren’t the Winter Meetings starting this week?

Whoa, I see what you mean! My post went ahead of the two from Tru @ 9:51 & 9:54! I guess NoCal is on Mountain Time!

Good morning, June Darlin’! Nice to see you too! But I guess this conversation thing is going to be challenging with the time stamps all screwy.

Good morning ITD boys and girls!
Eric! You’re back! It’s great to see ya again! The song I posted last Friday was only a repost of my “Juan Pierre Got Run Over By a Reindeer” song. That was my first song parody and I wanted to reprise it once the OFFICIAL first day of Christmas shopping started! Unfortunately, that’s when we started getting these time warp issues!

Well, let’s see where this particular post ends up? On my computer, it is now 9:26 AM PST…

It posts the right time; for now…

Tru & Nelly – It looks like you’re still in the mountain time zone…

But Tru, I’m not on the Recent Comments list either…

You’re right Tru!

And I’m still behind you Tru!

I thought Josh would’ve come back with a new thread to explain all this madness. Perhaps he will later today or tomorrow. Hopefully, the sooner, the better…

And I’m STILL not the Recent Comments!

How much you want to guess that I won’t be able to post past 9:51 AM…

My Nellygirl! Don’t ya love all this time warp stuff! NOT!

No Nelly! Don’t move to the mountain time zone!

LOL!! This is like the scene in Animal House when the guys syncronized their watches and Belushi’s was way different from everyone else’s.

Tru, you’re in a different dimension right now! We’ll call you TruWarp! LOL!!

That’s so bizarre! Junie, your post at 9:05 went OK. I wonder if north or anyone else in NoCal would have the same problem?

But I think the most annoying thing for me is that I have to scroll up and down, at the bottom, to see the most “recent” post! It could be the right time, or it could be an hour ahead!

We’ll have to have our own timestamps! 9:46AM

But Eric, right NOW I’m posting in the right time zone, but I definitely haven’t been in the right time zone all the time! And then, those darn submission errors…

9:50 AM PST – Just testing

Okay, I’m going to try to post at 9:51 AM and see what happens…

I think Enchanted and CP had songs on Friday……..right before the oddities started happening.

Okay, how about 9:52???

Strange (9:53)…

And I am STILL not on the Recent Comments (9:54)!

It starting again………I post but am not listed on recent comments.

Well, what is going to happen? (9:59)

Well, I’ve gotta go. I have things to do around the house and I hate posting in a time warp like this! I know I’m not in a time warp (for now), but Tru & Nelly are! Josh, oh Josh, where are you when we need you? We need you to come back with a new thread to explain all this!

CP ~ I bet my post will be ahead of yours when actually, I’m posting at 9:33.

See, all the fun you missed Dodgereric/Ward Dear……. I was actually able to read enchanted’s mind at times – so very bizarre (the time warp, not enchanted’s mind – well, it could apply to both, now couldn’t it?) – LOL!!!!

This is really beginning to annoy me!

I guess I am just going to have to move to the mountain time zone, I guess 🙂

Hey Nells! Winter meetings are from Dec. 8-11. Last day to offer arbitration to our FAs is Dec. 7, so we may not get much action until next week.

They’re really in a can’t lose situation by offering arbitration to Manny, Lowe, Blake and Biemel. You have to to Manny and Lowe so you’ll get two picks, and with Biemel and Blake, you only would have to sign them for the year if they accept. Otherwise we’d get a pick for them as well. The rest either aren’t eligible to receive a pick and/or worthy of taking the chance they’ll accept arbitration.

I still think if nothing else Ned HAS TO sign Hudson to give us a legit lead-off man, otherwise we’ll be stuck with Pierre. Then he’d better go after some decent pitching.

Submission error!!!!! This is getting riduculous

TruWarp testing, testing! 10:50 a.m.

enchanted – I know not much is going to happen, but I just want the ITD to run normal again. It was great being in your time zone for 4 days, but I want to go back home to the pacific time zone.

I think this going back and forth between time zones is started to make me dizzy. mountain, pacific, mountain, pacific, mountain, pacific and the submission error – geez!!!!!!!

Good afternoon, My name is dodger4life I was told to report here and ask for DCollins.

LMAO!!!!!!!!! too funny Dodger4life, too funny 🙂

Good afternoon/evening/morning! My name is Trublu and I was told to report here and ask for Dcollins!!! 1:15 p.m.

I am looking bfor the one thay call dcollins? Are you such???

He will fill me in on the next assignment….

There are big things to come of the future….

It’s 1:29 and maybe if we click our heels on our ruby red slippers, everything will be okay! Oh, Toto, where are you? Auntie Em, I miss you!!

LMAO, Dcollins! I’m posting after you but, will appear at way up on the list………1:32 pm

I’m the only one in the right time zone. For the moment, that is! Hmmmmmmmm!

Aarrrrgghhhh! I have been locked out since just after posting my song on 11/29!!! It’s not nice when we get locked out, not matter what time zone we’re in. As Spock would say, “It’s not logical.”

dcollins……..are you there? Dodger4life is back!!!! We need you now, please!!!!!

Now this is really weird . . I posted at 1:11, and now the time stamp says 2:11. I’m hearing the theme from “Twilight Zone” in the background. There’s a tornado coming . . . . LOL

d4 your instructions will be downloaded to you from the Mother Ship.
When received, go to the meeting point for further instructions.
We will achieve the set goal soon enough…

Tru-for the moment you are to remain. When needed you will be called…

Since we’re in a time warp, can we go back to the day before Ned signed Pierre, Schmidt and Jones, tie him up and stick him in the broom closet?

Thank you wise one 🙂
I am off, to await word from the Mothership…

Have awonderful day, Dodgerfaithful’s 🙂

Now THAT is a wonderful idea enchanted!!!!!!!!

OMG! I’m in, I’m in…I’ve been trying all day today to log in. But I guess there is MLB technical difficulties. Don’t if it’s because it is CYBER MONDAY or it is just MLB…??
THANK YOU JOSH – I hope your Thanksgiving was as wonderful as mine.
Hello all ITD – hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! I haven’t checked in since Wednesday, but I did remember November 28th JUAN PIERRE GOT RAN OVER BY A REINDEER.
CP – That is funny…so he got ran over by a reindeer or a mob of angry Dodger fans…LOL! ITD CHRISTMAS CAROL TIME!
I see that we have not signed Manny yet…what are they waiting for. I’m glad that they are finally thinking of others…LOWE & FURCAL. hopefully they stay blue…DODGER BLUE!

Good afternoon ITD boys and girls!
Enchanted – I would love nothing better than to go backwards in time before Ned made those awful signings!

So when I was on this morning, I (don’t jinx it, don’t jinx it) was on PST. Right now, it’s 2:47 PST – let’s see what time stamp I get this time…

Good afternoon Dodgersrule! Don’t you love the time warp we’re in??? NOT! Some of us are in the Pacific Time zone, others are in the Mountain Time zone. It’s been like this since Friday. And some of us (including me) have gotten “submission errors.” Meaning, we can’t post at all. So if you start to have a conversation with me or anyone else here, and then you ask a question and it’s not returned within reason, then that might be what’s happening! I was talking to AmyW the other day, I asked her how she was, she asked me a question, and then I got my submission error and could not respond back to her. Weird happenings on ITD…

Did anyone catch the latest mailbag?
I think Ken got it correct with what he would of done with Manny.
He doesn’t usually go off the company line all that much. This seemed a little bit off what was done.

But I’m glad that you liked the reindeer song!

I guess Northern California is still on Mountain time.
Maybe it’s the tectonic plates that have us moving there!
No offense but I hope not anytime to soon!!!! I like my ocean.

So CA is also on mountain time, and I’m only 1 1/2 miles from the beach as the seagull flies.

Okay, it seems like people are getting submission errors and can’t post. Or else, I’m here by my lonesome 😦

Well, I’ve gotta go run some errands. Maybe I’ll be back tonight. If I do, we’ll see what’s happening here in ITDland by then… Oh, by the way, this post is 3:07 PST…

Still stuck in the warp? I wonder what time zone I’m in…

Kinda nervous about winter meetings. Mainly ’cause I’m not sure what direction we’re gonna take. Probably will be an interesting ride like always, though.

All I’m hoping for is no panicked decisions to lock in a past-his-prime PVL long enough to logjam an upcoming talent. “Better a year early than a year late” obviously hasn’t applied to PVL’s lately.

Actually, the motto lately has been closer to “better a decade early than a decade late”.

northstateblues ~ How are you doing? Did you catch up on all of your reading? It seems like every time we think our time zone issue is over, it comes right back and tells us – no it’s not over quite yet.

I think the time warp has captured Josh! 3:30 pm

It actually posted my name this time……..maybe things are getting back to normal.

I’m furious! I just heard the Dodgers were going to trade Maury Wills to the Pirates! That’s terrible! First Sandy had to retire and now this! I’m so mad that I can’t focus for my 7th grade English final! I know we just got swept in the Series, but we need hitting, not to get rid of our sparkplug! Come on, we’re not even getting anyone in return! Someone say SOMETHING to O’Malley PLEASE!!!

LMAO, Dodgereric!!!

Boy, that Babe Herman is really something, ain’t he?

…..By dodgereric on July 21, 1930 4:05 PM

Damn, here we go again!! 4:15 pm, pst

I posted after you, Enchanted, and I’m way up there! Please let this end!!

I don’t even know if my posts are being counted.

LMAO!!!! ~ That’s very good Ward Dear. Welcome to the ITD version of The Twilight Zone, where you have no idea what time zone you will end up in next. As long as it doesn’t go to Hawaii’s time zone where I would have to repeat the next three hours.

OH NO!!!!!!!! I am back in mountain time. Enchanted and Dodger4life – Do you have any rooms available?!????

Josh – Help us please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are stuck in a time warp and can’t get out!!!!!!!!!!!


I like the program that they use over at Dodger Thoughts that posts the entry/post number. It also allows you to use boldface which would come in quite handy at times.

4:05 PST


I’d plea for help from Josh regarding the time warp, but I think if I went overboard in the middle of the ocean, rather than a life preserver the Dodger front office would collectively throw me an anchor.
