It's our fourth year of this fine blog, and we Sons have decided it's time to shatter the fourth wall. So, here we go...
Other Dodger blogs have done this sort of event thing before, inviting their readers to all sit together in a big block at a Dodgers game, which is very cool. But we Sons figured that a more appropriate event for our particular readership community would be to have us congregate at a bar to watch a Dodger game together on television. (Instead of dealing with the logistical mayhem of pre-game ticket distributions, we'll be able to focus our energies on enjoying drinking with some of you. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.)
We are proud to announce the first-ever Sons of Steve Garvey event, which we have named "SoSG FEST 2010". We're hoping to bring some of our most loyal and vocal readers together on the afternoon of Saturday, July 31, 2010, at a secret location in Los Angeles.
Drinks will be served. Appetizers will be consumed. Prizes may be awarded. And the Dodgers @ Giants game (televised on Fox) will be shown on television. We are really appreciative and grateful of our readers, so we want to subsidize a portion of this event. All we ask is that you bring a
healthy liver, a little bit of cash, and a snarky attitude, and come watch the game with some of the Sons.
Here's how this is going to work: If you are interested in attending this event, send us an email with your SoSG screen name and a brief paragraph on why you think you should be invited. We unfortunately do not have space for everyone at this event, but we also hope that this isn't the last SoSG Fest--so don't be dismayed if you don't make the cut on this one, as we're hoping to have more of these in the future.
Entries will be judged by a subset of the Sons, who will make their capricious and arbritrary decisions based on the quality of their entry email, the quality and quantity of the entrants' comments on this site to date, and potentially other criteria that they will decide on the fly. Bribery might be seen favorably by the judges, but is not necessary. All decisions are final. "Winners" (and I do use that term liberally) will be emailed with separate instructions on the event location and time.
(We could also use some help with the logo treatment, btw. I can't even figure out how to change the shadow color from that awful orange. If anyone can design a better one for us, we'd appreciate it.)
Mark your calendars--and good luck!
