Game 152 Thread: Sept. 18 vs. Pirates, 1p

Chad Billingsley (10-10, 4.30) vs. Brad Lincoln (1-2, 3.73).

It's Fan Appreciation Day at Dodger Stadium! Here's a list of stuff you won't be winning, ranging from a 2011 Hyundai Elantra to "Melissa's 12 month exotic fruit club membership." Boy, Melissa's going to be pissed when she finds out her membership's been given away. You know what Dodger fans would really appreciate? Insert Frank McCourt joke here.

Sax's note: I am opening up the mail for the week and I realize I just fell into two tickets, reserved level section 2, for the Thursday Sept 22 game vs. the Giants. I can't use 'em, so here's a hastily-concocted contest for two free tickets:

  • If you're interested in the tickets, post a comment in this thread that says nothing more than the word "Interested."
  • You must post your comment at or before 1:00 PM (as recorded on this blog).
  • At 1:01 PM, all the people are locked, and will be sequentially entered into a contest based on the attendance of today's (Sunday's) game. (For example, if there were three entries, the first person has [attendance/3] r=0; the second person has r=1; the third person has r=2. If four people attend today's game, the second person wins the tickets (r=1).)
  • All decisions are final. If something goes wrong with the system, I'll just pick a number. Winner will need to email us with his/her handle and we'll drop the tickets in the mail Monday. No guarantees that the USPS will deliver this promptly, but you never know.

Good luck!

Orel said...

karina said...

@Orel not yet...but film ran out of budget so I guess I will soon. It's been waaaaaay too much crazier than normal, I barely have time to sleep, however I'm proud of the work we've done. Since it's my free day today, I've decided to procrastinate big time ;)

maybe you're interested in seeing some pics from the shooting here: http://on.fb.me/pfe3D7

Orel said...

Powerful stuff, Karina!

rbnlaw said...

Does Marla win the tickets by default?

rbnlaw said...

Where was this team in June.

The Dodgers, I mean; not the Pie rats.

Josh S. said...

karina said...

@Orel thank you :)

@rbnlaw as long as they play well, I'll take it

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Looks like nobody gets the tickets.

I just want to win the contest.

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale y'all! Interested but could not possibly attend :(

Steve Sax said...

Holy smokes! no one wants the tickets?!?!

Steve Sax said...

Mr LA SC/ did you get your prize for AC yet?

Dusty Baker said...

Just got off the plane, Vinny!

Wait, is that score correct?

Josh S. said...

Hahaha. Vinny has checked out.

Josh S. said...

Speaking of checking out, I'm gonna watch more Star Wars blu-ray extras. I'll keep the DVR rolling and flip back over for Kemp ABs.

Steve Sax said...

@Josh S: you've always had a thing for Kemp's abs.

Me, I prefer a different type of six-pack

karina said...

why does Blogger have to suck when I'm excited over a Dodgers game?

Josh S. said...

Shows how much inwas paying attention. Kemp had already been lifted from the game when I posted that.

karina said...

and the batting practice goes wild, ladies and gents

Josh S. said...

Sands is ridiculous right now. Keep it up, kid.

Fred's Brim said...

heh heh 33

Steve Sax said...

Velez can't even get a hit on a day we score 15 runs

Fred's Brim said...

@Sax we have outscored 6 NFL teams today

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

@Sax - When did you send it?

Fred's Brim said...

@karina, firstly, epale!
Secondly, those photos are crazy. I know we jokingly say you are filming pornos, but those photos are beyond that!

Fred's Brim said...

Jerry!

Fred's Brim said...

woop! party makin' time!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

With an attendance of 37,802, I win the tickets!

Who wants them?

Dusty Baker said...

76-76

Does that mean we suck or that we blow?

Fred's Brim said...

woop! party makin' time!

Dusty Baker said...

Did Velez seriously not get a hit?

When I get settled into my hotel, I'll watch the game on archive/replay.

Mrs Dusty said that Vin was feeling sorry for the Pie Rats.

Drinking multiple Manhatans quickly after a long, cramped flight Vinny!

karina said...

Guys, we need to celebrate this glorified batting practice with Gloria Estefan's new single Wepa:

Steve Sax said...

Mr LA SC: I am assuming you do not want the tickets. I'm putting them up again.

karina said...

@Dusty can we just ignore Velez? :(

karina said...

@Fred's Brim and Orel :thank you very much for the kind words. We are very proud and the cinematography of the film is beautiful, wish you could see it!

We have a headless woman with a ripped boob*, obviously they are going to do the whole special effect on post-production but when I saw the special effects makeup, I couldn't close my mouth!

*based on a true fact which leads to the first peak pf the film's narrative.
