I bet if they hosted a $500 event like this but called it "Save Manny!" they would sell the place out.

Save MANNY! That's an awesome idea.

They should do it every weekend. I'd be there. If I didn't live in Alaska.

I bet profits for this go to the "pay for Manny next year" fund.

DanGarion said...

I really wanted to go to this, but $500 is just too steep. I can only think they are charging that much to keep the riff raff out.

Erin said...

Yeah, I was so excited when I got the email about this. I would have been willing to pay a lot, but $500 is way too much, especially since I would have needed two tickets. Too bad. I bet it will be awesome.

Awesome - if I can get my money back from Games 4 & 5 of NLCS perhaps I can make it.

Steve Sax said...

Alicia, didn't you get your refund yet?

Orel, nice job on "shag with Russell and Andre."

Orel said...

Oh behave!

Julie Hibbard said...

I never got my refund from the unnecessary Game 4 NLDS game!

Maybe I should call and see if they'll give me credit toward going to third base with Russell Martin instead.
Sounds like a sweet deal to me!

Orel said...

Oh behave!

wow Julie!

What if every Dodgers fan give 10 bucks to keep Manny? we should start a fundraising campaign.
