You asked for it, you got it

We announced this morning the winning uniform for the six half-price food and beverage throwback days in 2011. The 1940s blue uniform won by just a few percentage points among nearly 50,000 votes and it really is cool to say that you were the ones to decide which uniform the Dodgers will wear.

We had a few players wear the jerseys today and it really should be a unique environment at Dodger Stadium for those six midweek day games. We even created a special ticket package where the tickets for those six games are half price, too. Hopefully you’ll find a way to skip work, school, or just find your way to the stadium on these games.

Individual tickets for these games, Opening Day and all the other cool promotional nights (and all 81 games) are available starting tomorrow at 10 a.m.

    In all seriousness, if I were Frank, I’d sell now while the price is at its highest. You get out now, take a profit, settle with Jamie, don’t go thru all the litigation and public exposure of your ineptness, and spare your kids the embarrassment. You will still be rich and not in debt up to your eyeballs!!!

    Wrong choice!! It was bad in 1940 and it is even worse now. Geez!!!

    Get Eric/Dad in here and we have the 4 horse men of the apocalypse!!! We will ride again!!!! It’s funny, but, in the movie “A Christmas Carol”, when the ghost of Christmas present unveils his robe to the two young children.

    They are Man’s,’ said the Spirit, looking down upon
    them. ‘And they cling to me, appealing from their fathers.
    This boy is Ignorance. This girl is Want. Beware them both,
    and all of their degree, but most of all beware this boy,
    for on his brow I see that written which is Doom, unless the
    writing be erased.;_ylu=X3oDMTBwbWs1NjN2BHBvcwM2BHNlYwNzcgR2dGlkA0kxMzNfODM-/SIG=1mo8ebqv8/EXP=1298704858/**http%3a//…%26p=ignorance%2band%2bwant%2bphoto%2bfrom%2ba%2bchristmas%2bcarol%26oid=3f7a7f3ca60ff801eafe5d6565c4beea%26fr2=%26no=6%26tt=250%26sigr=12ebao2tp%26sigi=126gra3b2%26sigb=13t9r7at6%26.crumb=xTO58bPKW9F

    Jamie(Want) and Frank(Ignorance)!!!!

    Frank needs to be erased!!!!!

    You guys are something else! I think those uniforms suck and, I’ll bet Dre, Kersh and Matt hope it is their day off when those ugly shirts are worn!

  4. jhallwally

    Gotta wonder about who voted for that uniform then and now. Geez!! I guess recto-cranial-insertion is not a new thing!!!!

  5. jhallwally

    Could have sold a bundle of the 1911 uni!!! You’re an idiot Frank!!!! What idiot would buy this powder puff!!! Geez!!!

  6. trublu4ever

    I also voted for the 1911 uni… did almost everybody on Facebook so it makes you wonder who the heck did vote for these!

  7. jhallwally

    H*ll, doesn’t even look like you get satin!!!! What a freaking joke!!! I guess PT Barnum was right. Especially in Chavez Ravine!!!!

  8. enchantedbeaver

    I betcha Frank and Ned have a pair of those bunny suits Wally!!

    Hope the boys don’t wear those powder blues anywhere near West Hollywood. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)

    I’m betting $100 that gnat, angel and padre fans stormed the voting site. Ugly with a capital “UG”. Henry Louis Mencken said ?Nobody ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public.?

    You boys are funny today! My favorites so far:

    Isn’t that powder blue? the main thing is, it brings a tear to my old eyes whenever the Dodgers honor their beloved birthplace.

    Hi Dodgereric~
    My first season was 1947 and I don’t recall this throwback uniform. I’m sure they wouldn’t use it if it never exited.
    I really think they should’ve used all 3, especially 1911 celebrating 100 years of that jersey stile. There was no need for voting. They could’ve used each one twice.
    That’s my opinion.

    It does not look good late at night when everyone is sleeping and here I am laughing silly at the posts. LOL.
    Should be in bed as we leave to the Ranch early in the AM. We had a snag with our trip (person that we thought was driving their car is not) but I just reserved a car online.
    I actually have a Laker women retro jersey close to that powder blue color.
    I really don’t want to pull a Dodger year media to look at unis.
    I wanted the 1911 with the letters coming down.
    Yep, there’s is that pic of the blue uni. It says “1940’s “satin” road” In the Information guide(like it is called now).

    Hi ITD
    I just would like you to know that I sent out a request to the Mets, to have a game in Citi Field that features the Dodgers and the Mets in throwback unis.
    I’m awaiting an answer.
    This would be good for us old folks who rooted for the team when they were in Brooklyn, regardless of how they feel about the team today.
    Also for the younger fans who were told about it.

  14. enchantedbeaver

    Judging from the box score of the Giants game I’d say Mattingly has the team in mid-season form leaving runners on base.

    See we’re skipping Garland’s spot in the rotation already. Bunnynutts says its nothing but then, when do we ever trust anything that comes from the coaches or front office?

    Looks like I picked the wrong year to stop taking amphetamines.
