Tommy On The Big Dodger In The Sky

You know I’m still not over the Dodger’s NLCS six game loss to the Cardinals. It’s disheartening, pretty frustrating. But we trudge on and tomorrow is another year. The Dodgers will be back and we still love our boys in blue. What an incredible season. It still almost feels like a dream in some ways. The horrible first two months, The amazing run to the division title, the historic season, and the playoff run deep into October will remain in our thoughts for a long time. Bluetober ended a little too soon for us. But I have confidence and faith in this new ownership, and I think the good men and woman of the Guggenheim Baseball Management group will give us a Bluetober next year, and every year, building a solid foundation of competitive clubs for years to come.

Tommy won’t give up the good fight I tell you what. As a matter of fact, he says he’ll live until he’s a 100 years old. I hope he’s right. Here’s a video that should cheer everyone up on a lazy Sunday morning. It’s a light news day today as the World Series plays on. Here’s Tommy Lasorda talking about how much he loves the Dodgers before one of the NLCS games, and when he goes to that big Dodger Blue heaven in the sky, he hopes he sees Don Drysdale up there. I don’t know how I missed this video, but I wish we could bottle Tommy’s passion and unleash it upon our enemies. It would be Lasorda’s Lair style. I miss the Dodgers, I miss Dodger Baseball, and most of all I miss all of you guys.
