Is this a Broxton and/or dessert thread?

Paul said...

I go from getting pumped to getting nauseous and back again.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm the same way, Paul. I kept waking up last night and thinking about pitching/hitting matchups and so forth. All the food I can keep down is an old fashioned PB sandwich. Can't wait to get in there and have an all-beef super Dodger Dog, which I'm sure will ease the proverbial pain.

Paul said...

or do I mean nauseated? Either way I love playoff baseball, no I hate it...where is the beer?

Josh S. said...

EBBRYBUDDY CLEP YER HENS!

I laugh every time I hear that at the Ravine.

PUUUUUUMMMMMMMMPED!!!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Not to sound like a 17-year old girl getting read for her prom, but I'm having trouble deciding what to wear. Leaning heavily toward the Brooklyn cap; it's just a gut feeling I've had since last night.

Paul said...

Good luck tonight Dusty!

May the force be with you.

Josh S. said...

Bring it home, DB.

Dusty Baker said...

You guys have me pumped now. *shadow boxes*

Here is a pic of the rally towels they'll hand out tonight:

Dodgers AV crew needs to roll out the Lima Time game footage early and often tonight.

Josh S. said...

Nice towel. A sea of swirling blue is going to look so awesome.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker when in doubt about sartorial choices, follow your heart: Brooklyn cap is adequate.

I'm glad i'm not the only one who can't eat...game can't start soon enough!

Mr. Customer said...

@Paul

I think you do mean nauseated, but I'm not ruling anything out.

karina said...

Just one question before game starts: do you Obi Wan Kenobi is good enough to be a playoff avatar?

Josh S. said...

Karina, we clinched on Star Wars Night, so I'm REALLY hesitant to change my SW-related avatar.

QuadSevens said...

Super pumped for tonight's game! I'll have my beer mug full and surround sound on at home. I might have to buy some peanuts for home as well.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Thx for the cap advice.

re: the SW-related avatar question, I think they have served us well of late and so there's no need to change. I don't want to feel a disturbance in the Force.

Dusty Baker said...

4-7s:

Ralph's has Dodger-logoed salted peanuts for $1.99 right now.

Nic j said...

My stomach is officially inhabited by butterflies.

karina said...

@Josh S @Dusty Baker thanks, i really needed the "superstitions technical support". If Obi Wan can't help us, who can?

Dr. Geek said...

I'm nervous. Damn nervous.

Unfortunately, I will be in my college algebra class through the first hlaf of the game. No doubt I will find it hard to concentrate as I look at the clock and pray to the baseballs gods that the Bums are hanging in there, even winning.

Nic j said...

The rox are getting whipped

Josh S. said...

Our avatars are hard working, and will serve us well.

rbnlaw said...

I ain't a changin a thing for tonight's game.
Jobu got us here (for the last 2 games), and I'm dancing with him tonight. Since this is a special occasion, I might just bust out a couple of brews tonight. I usually abstain in the beginning of the week, but hell, this is the playoffs.

rbnlaw said...

To those going to the game:
Good luck. We're all counting on you.

QuadSevens said...

DB:

No Ralph's near me, but Albertson's has the same bags. They are definitely on my game plan for the ride home after work.

rbnlaw said...

Oh, and the Rox suck right now.

Dusty Baker said...

@RB

Will definitely represent tonight!

@4-7s

Glad to hear you have the peanuts hookup. That's key. You know what goes well with peanuts? Beer.

Bayareadfan said...

Tracy strikes again...left Jimenez in way too long, should have pinch hit for him after that 5th.

Josh S. said...

Jim Tracy is turning back into Jim Tracy.

Fred's Brim said...

PUMPED!

Dusty Baker said...

And shouldn't have run the team out there in those hideous black sweater vests.

QuadSevens said...

Don't I know it DB! I've got some beer in the fridge already. But while I'm buying peanuts, I might have to get more too. Like AM/PM says, "You can never have too much good stuff."

Fred's Brim said...

Pump the Birds!

Dusty Baker said...


PUMPED!

rbnlaw said...

Freaking Lee with a complete game?
Pillies have no pen. That or Lee just cruised.

rbnlaw said...

Is Jim Tracy acting like Jim Tracy? That depends. Is he acting like Jim Tracy in 2004? I'd say yes.
