Remember the day after high school senior prom, when you wake up a little hung over and slow the next morning? And the sun seems to be a little warmer and brighter, and the birds are chirping louder? And you got so lucky last night that you've got a huge grin on your face that stretches from ear to ear?
Yeah, it's kind of like that, right now.
Last night's invitation by Dodgers VP of Public Relations Josh Rawitch to join him in the Dodgers' Suite was an absoultely unforgettable night to remember. I want to thank him for his hospitality, candor, and for the parade of guests that he arranged to come by our suite and chat with us: Ned Colletti, Frank McCourt, and Tommy Lasorda. All three of them were polite, gracious, and candid with their opinions about the Dodgers, the team's future, and things to come.
Rawitch deserves an amazing amount of credit for setting up this evening, which was truly a Dodger fan's dream come true. It truly was a magnanimous gesture that was not only incredibly generous, but also very avant-garde in the very thought of embracing some Dodger bloggers--including nameless and faceless bloggers, mind you. The organizational logistics that must have been required to prepare this evening on such short notice also speaks volumes about Rawitch's initiative and entrepreneurial spirit. The Dodgers' organization is lucky to have him on staff...as are we.
We have pictures and videos and thoughts coming soon, but on behalf of Orel and Delino, a big thank you from Steve Sax and the Sons of Steve Garvey.
