SoSG Fest 2014 - At Last, The Story Can Be Told

We came. We saw. We conquered.

Beer was drank.
Grub was eaten.
Money wasn't paid by this person (who do I owe, btw?)
Beer was drank.
Getting together the SoSG crew is like a family reunion you crash of a much more level-headed family than your own. Flame wars are put aside for the greater good.

As SoSG continues to morph

... one thing brings us all back together. THE BOYS IN BLUE. And free food and drinks (seriously, did I skip out on a check? I do that sometimes.)
Please note: to protect the identities of our Sons and loyal athletic supporters, no heads were captured by this roving photog.

REAL DELINO stands guard to keep the ruffians, free loaders and SoSG Lasorda out. 

Some men and a lady.

This guy

That Guy

Ooo... Look at me.  I've got some foreign shirt.  (Ed Note: SOSG Sax did change into Dodgers gear, but continued wearing his kilt)

I don't know what the F this game is... or why it took half of the SoSG contingency to play it.  The line between the Fest and D&D got perilously thin. 


Three of the Original Sons crammed into the PhotoBooth. 

Hot ticket item at the Dodgers Chachki Exchange:  ARMLESS MATTINGLY.  

Everyone went home a winner.  Except those who didn't get anything. 

Cruel, cruel irony.  A Cardinals Tattoo in the Cracker Jack box.   And why is it so hard to find the peanuts in those boxes.  When I was a young lad, Cracker Jack meant more than just popcorn.  It meant you'd get peanuts.  Oh so many peanuts.  Why do these things change?  How does Arnold get turned into frikkin Colin Farrell in the Total Recall remake...  I digress. 

The biggest winner of all.  SOSG Orel.  With TWO signed DELINO cards. 

There was much rejoicing as Kershaw picked up his 19th and SOSG Fest proved to be a stirring success! 

There was a celebratory bubble just a second before I took this photo.

As SoSG lumbers into its 43rd season, we want to thank our loyal readers, the Dodgers organization, our Moms, the former SoSG Sons who are still stuck behind enemy lines and, of course, Jason Grabowski.

Here's to more Fests. More Threads. And maybe some day, the return of Dodgers Baseball to our actual f'ing televisions. #ineedmydodgers

Great recap! The SoSG Fest was loads of fun. Thanks again for putting it on guys!

I have my Delino autographed card on display in my office here at work. I've had a few offers, but I can't part with it.

Steve Sax said...

Excellent wrap-up Delino! Thanks again for MCing (and for the wheels to the event)!

Sorry about that tattoo.

Still crying.

Orel said...

I haven't seen this much crying since we gave away Smonk

Orel said...

We missed you guys, rbn & Neeebs!

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

If you would like one of those rare Delino cards, signed by the third or fourth most famous Delino DeShields in the universe, send on your address to SOSG.

We haven't punished armless Donnie yet, but if we lose to the Cubs, photos will follow.

By the way, you goyum boys are cute: This is how you spell the yiddish for knick knack: Tchatchke.

It's a tough one; even I had to look it up. So much for my Hebrew school past!
