It's So Bad, The Dodgers Are Canceling Poster Giveaways

Allan Malamud Jerry Crowe's latest string of clauses indicates that the Dodgers are even opting not to print already-announced poster giveaways, the latest in desperate fan-screwing cost-cutting schemes:

Frank and Jamie McCourt finally landed in court this week, but this entire season has been a trial for Dodgers fans. …

With Manny Ramirez off doing his thing for the Chicago White Sox as of Tuesday, the Dodgers have canceled their Sept. 17 promotion: Manny Ramirez Poster Night. …

The posters were never printed, a club spokesman says. …

I can't believe they won't even print the posters. Now that Manny is with the White Sox, they could have even made it a black-and-white poster and saved on color printing. No need to throw the whole baby out with the bathwater there.

I would have liked a "Thank you, Manny!" poster.

I would have liked an "In Memoriam: Manny's Dreads" poster.

I agree Josh, a "thank you manny" poster would've been a nice and classy gesture but the McCourts are the far opposite of both nice and classy.

I wonder if the poster would have had something to do with The Mannyslam?

Little ray of sunshine today, aren't we Sax?

@rbnlaw: I actually wanted to extend the theme but ran out of steam last night. Who knows, it's a long weekend...

God damn I'm getting depressed.

rbnlaw said...

Right Saxy, 3 against the Gnats to further the suffering. I can't remember a time I was so blase (accent on the e) about a rivalry series.

According to @Enrique_Rojas1 Manny cut 99 cm off his hair, for monster99.com

It's official, it's the end of an era.

:(

Wait, if they throw out the bathwater, what will they put in a cup and sell for $12?

@Josh:

HI-YOOOOOOOOOO

rbnlaw said...

Christ were a bunch of morose fucks today.

We need beer, STAT!

and we'll always have schadenfreude.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm going to skip the beer and head str8 for the gin, myself.

rbnlaw said...

OK, I'll go get the vodka.

Are we having a wake for the 2010 season? I can get on board with that.

Wait, you mean MM, right, Karina? They ca't have been over a meter, and dude would look silly with a chrome dome.

(trying to remember how to think in metric. Didn't come out quite right the first time)

@Mr C Rojas said 99 cm.He might be exaggerate but 99 cm is something like 37 inches (I think).Well, maybe they took time to stretch the curls and measure them
